Lebanon’s ever increasing nightlife offers an entirely different outlook on good food – this time combined with entertainment.

Here, the extent of choice may run from local bands who play for guests as they enjoy a special evening menu, to international entertainers and matching super sophisticated dinner menus. In the 1960’s and 1970’s Lebanon was famous for its nightlife and today the after-eight crowd is bigger than ever.

Explore the nightclubs in greater Beirut and the mountain resorts, where Lebanese ingenuity has combined with competition to create some very original venues for the big night out. Discos, much loved by young people, are kept jumping until all hours.

In nightclubs expect a variety of entertainment including the ever-popular oriental or “belly” dancing as well as oriental orchestras and vocalists.
