B018

BARCHICK SAYS

It almost has to be seen to be believed. Located underneath a car park in the eerily named Quarantaine, a quiet industrial area, B018 is Beirut's original 'hypogeal' super club. Rumours about its history are manifold, its origins dating back to the civil war, and it's suggested that the site even used to be a Palestinian refugee camp. Yet, come three or four in the morning, there is nothing sombre about the atmosphere as the crowds start to build. Hot, sweaty, confusingly decorated – a combination of 'war architecture' and throne-like chairs – you almost feel that you're in some secret warehouse rave. Then, you look upwards towards the roof in a slightly drunken haze and realise it's suddenly disappeared and, from the dancefloor, you can see the stars and moon above. Now this is how to party!

B018 almost transports you back to the Civil War period, it's purely hedonistic vibe reminding you that peace is never taken for granted in this mesmerising city, so make the most of life while you can!
