There’s a reason Beirut’s airport code is BEY. Not only is it homophonous with the internet’s new favorite word, bae, it also embodies the spirit of the term. The Paris of the East has survived more tragedy, turmoil, and trauma than most, but like all great cities, Beirut rose like a phoenix from the ashes. Beirut is bae.

Beirut is the one who took the Middle East and North Africa dancing. It's there that the region – and the world’s – beautiful people go to indulge their nocturnal predilection. Beirut possess a perfectly unique formula for an unforgettable night out: the pounding music, masterful mixology, great local spirits, beer, and wine, a tantalizing cuisine, and a population that seems genetically predisposed to being ridiculously good looking and working the dance floor like there’s no tomorrow. Beirut’s clubbing scene is on par with New York City’s, and regionally, Beirut’s nightlife is rivaled only by Tel Aviv’s.

Look, all we’re saying is your liver and your doctor may hate Beirut, but you will absolutely love it. It is one of those few cities in which people have their priorities straight and it will serve you well to emulate their example for duration of your visit. It’s the only way to experience Beirut.
