ONLY OPEN IN SUMMER
Architectural ovni. The legendary club designed by the famous Bernard Khoury is labeled as a perfect example of ‘war architecture’. Party in this underground war shelter and get touched by the sunrise light when the roof opens. Since its opening in 1998, new and trendier places may have popped up but till now going to BO 18 is an experience. That’s not mere clubbing, that’s living Beirut’s energy through its contradictions: lively, macabre, hedonistic and immediate. Preferably go on weekends as an after-party (80’s nights are organized on Thursdays but it's not the best to feel the real energy of the place).
