Bo18 Nightclub Beirut

Located at the north-eastern entrance of Beirut, B018 is a spectacular nightclub designed by Bernard Khoury (same genius that designed the amazing NBK Residence). B018 is one of Beirutīs most popular nightclubs and has been voted several times by Wallpaper Magazine as one of the best clubs in the world. B018 is shaped like a coffin, and looks like an old bomb shelter, but under what looks like a gloomy parking lot, lays a glamorous nightclub. The unassuming metal facade is equipped with a massive hydraulic apparatus that articulates the infamous retractable roof which gives revellers a mind-blowing night-time view of the stars and city lights.
