Dive into Beirut’s electronic club scene

Join us as we meet the people and explore the venues that keep things kicking in the Lebanese city.

Countless column inches have been dedicated to nightlife in New York, London, Berlin, Miami et al. But what about the less travelled destinations, where clubs offer disparate cultures a chance to come together and enjoy incredible music?

With that in mind, we took flight to Beirut, Lebanon, to explore one of the most dedicated electronic scenes on the planet.

For the exclusive short film Underground Beirut, we visited the city's most popular clubs, discovered the scene's history and found out how everything started.

From BO18 (Beirut's most legendary club, which started out as a bomb shelter during the war) to Uberhaus (the self-proclaimed 'all-dancing and all-punching social-faux-pas of this city's nightscape') via the globally respected likes of The Grand Factory and Hyte Beirut, this Underground Beirut shows how the city's diverse cultures and creeds all party together at night.
