First look: Famous Beirut bunker club B018 opens in Media One Hotel
You’ll find it on the 42nd floor at Media One Hotel…
What’s On first brought you the news back in July 2020 that a Dubai outpost of famous Beirut bunker club B018 was set to open in the city. Now, you don’t need to wait any longer for your dose of the underground club scene as B018 Dubai is officially open.
The war-inspired club can be found on the 42nd floor of the popular Media One Hotel in Dubai’s Media City. The venue boasts two concepts: A Tropical Room inviting its guests for drinks and nibbles from 6pm; and a cool industrial club – The Main Room, which will provide an electric nightlife scene from 10pm.
B018 Beirut is known for its ‘war architecture’ including coffin-shaped seats and industrial style. While the Dubai outpost won’t have the same historical origins, the new venue hopes to bring much of its urban aesthetic and concept to our glittering city.
The ‘Main Room’ is exemplary of this pared-back industrial style, darkly lit with moody lighting in reds, greens and blues. It will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10pm to 3am. DJ nights on Tuesdays are all about old schoolhouse, Chicago house and Brit Garage house. On Thursdays the focus will be on soul, disco, new wave and 80’s hits, and on Fridays, it’s all house, tech house, minimal melodic house, indie and techno.
