“Party in a former detention center In Western cultural consciousness, the name ‘Beirut’ tends to evoke either war or parties. ‘Why not do both in one space?’ replies Beirut, and here we have it: B018, the legendary club in Karantina. The area’s name stems from the quarantine that stood here in the days of the French protectorate; it later became the site of a camp for thousands of Palestinian, Kurdish, and South Lebanese refugees, who were all massacred or expelled by a Phalangist militia in 1976. Today, and not without controversy, it is home to this sprawling underground club. DJ sets run into the early hours of the morning, when dawn signals the time to draw back the roof and reveal the stars and city lights. It’s explosive. B 018, also pronounced in French B Dix-Huit, is a nightclub that was established in 1994 in Beirut, Lebanon. Today, by staying true to its claim, "A Sound Ritual", B 018 offers an array of nights. From live bands to 80s night during the week and international and local house DJs on the weekends, the club feeds everything heart and ears desire.”
