Claiming the title of first Beirut club to enter the Top 100 poll last year, The Grand Factory makes another great leap (of 13 places to be exact) in 2020. Split over three rooms —the 1,000-capacity Factory, 300-cap Reunion, and Soul Kitchen, which holds 200 people — the club opened in 2014 on the site of a mattress factory, which amazingly still operates during the daytime.

As well as booking the likes Sven Väth, Tale Of Us, Stephan Bodzin, Black Coffee, Amelie Lens and Honey Dijon in the past year, The Grand Factory has launched a new night focused on supporting local talent, and made a conscious effort to combat Lebanon’s ongoing economic crisis via “a dedicated humanitarian approach, both in supporting our community through several donation drives, in addition to making our venue an accessible venue for all”.
