  • Platinum, Amigos, Laterna, Back-door, Le Serail: Nightlife in Damascus

    by Danielmar Written May 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Allright people, those are few tips on clubbing in Damascus, Syria. first, you need to know there are two different kinds of nightclubs in Damascus. the 1st is for men customers only where more or less prostitutes dance and men pay money to have drinks with them and probably some extra stuff. the 2nd kind of nightclubs are the normal ones where friends or couples go out at night to have fun. for the 2nd kind of clubs there are many in Damascus and as far as I know the best are the followings: Platinum (close to four seasons hotel in central Damascus), Laterna (29 Ayar st, central Damascus), Back-Door (next to Barada sports club), Le Serail (Bab sharqi, on the wall of the old city), Amigos (10 minutes drive from Damascus on Damascus-Aleppo Highway), and there are other smaller Bars in the old city like Piano bar and Marmar which are not bad at all. The English pub in Sheraton hotel is good as well. ofcourse restaurants in the christian quarter of the old city are excellent and they serve alcohol, i would recommend Haretna or Elissar. Enjoy it people

    Things to do in the evening

    by Clara_Louise Written Nov 7, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Damascus and Alleppo there are bars and nightclubs. You'll have to ask where they are as I can't remember names but a hotel, taxi driver or young man will be able to advise! Some are sleazy, some are nicer, so bear in mind who you ask...

    In Alleppo there were some classy bars in the Christian quarter and some clubs with dancing.

    The nightlife is subdued though. For a relaxed evening, the Syrian version of a bar has sheesah and tea. There will be lots of men having lively conversation and, bizarrely, playing backgammon or chess. Women are perfectly welcome to go and will be very safe but you may get some surprised looks!

    I walked back to my hotel at night on my own sometimes and felt fine.

    A drink at Barons Hotel, Aleppo

    by MalenaN Updated Sep 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Baron Hotel was built in 1909 and was once one of the best hotels in Middle East. Many famous guests have been staying here, like T.E. Lawrence, Charles Lindbergh, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Agatha Christie (she wrote the first part of Murder on the Orient Express here).
    Now it has lost much of its former glory, but the bar is a nice place to visit for a drink or two. I had a Campari with orange juice, which was very good!

    Like all the other Syrian cities Hims is so secured to walk through even in the latest hours of the night, and it is safe, the summer nights are sleepless, as many Syrian people likes to make white nights parties!

    Festival

    by dr.firas Written Oct 13, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Festival of Busra is so famous in Syria.
    It is 4 times in a year.
    Once in each season!
    Like the Jarash Festival in Jordan, or the Baalbeck festival in Lebanon!
    Busra is the place where the famous singers and artists or dancing groups are gathering and presenting their work.

    Some ancient coins from the Festival

    If you're renting a shaleh in the Golden Sands, this is the greatest time to chat with neighbors and enjoy the great stars and moon over the sea, and smoking a water pipe, you'll never forget these memories never!

    Wonderful isn't it?

    This photo was taken on the shore of Jableh city in the west coast of Syria; I always walk there to get some relaxations, it is something very interesting to walk through hundreds of people, and also many cafés where you can sit and drink watching the sun set at the end of the day.........

    whirling dervishes followed by a drink @ the baron: aleppo

    .
    WHIRLING DERVISHES
    There are still a handful of whirling dervishes in Syria, not many.. so it's down to a bit of luck to have the opportunity to see them dancing. At least 2 of these groups are based in the Aleppo area, and one of them occasionally performs in the olf hospital/asylum Bimaristan Arghan. The best way to find out about dances is to drop by the hospital during the day and inquire there.They charged 500 Syrian pounds for the performance.
    DRINKS AT THE BARON HOTEL
    The Baron hotel is a real institution... gothic, mysterious, spooky, and maybe slightly melanchonic-looking... but it's a great wonderful place to go fro a few drinks in the evening. The bar is really tiny and cosy - and it's very easy to meet other travellers. If this is not enough for you, then think about the fact that the likes of Lawrence of Arabia, Agatha Christie, Roosevelt and Yuri Garaging have all stayed and drank there. Not enough? Well, then think of former royalties: King Gustav & Queen Louise of Sweden; King Faysal I of Iraq; Queen Ingrid of Denmark, and so on and so forth. And go there!

    Dress Code: both places are very informal. As the Bimaristan's "stage" is an open air stage, you may want to bring something warm in case it gets cold

    cham palace cinema: damascus

    by call_me_rhia Written Jan 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cinema! Not much of a choice here... especially good movies... and even more movies in English. One exception I found is the cinema belonging to the very posh ChamPalace Hotel. Not much of a movie choice either - mainly Hollywood blockbusters, but they're in English. If you're not a fan of such films just know that this is about the best you can get: all other movie theatres show really bad B (or C or D) movies, preferably martial arts movies! If this is not bad enough, just keep in mind that all movies are heavily censored! Not much fun! The Cham Cinema - in comparison - is an oasis of happiness!

    Dress Code: nothing special
