Location: Beirut, Lebanon
Located on top of a mattress factory in the Port of Beirut, The Grand Factory is something of a hidden gem. The main Factory room boasts stunning views of the mountains and sea, while Reunion packs a renowned sound system, and Soul Kitchen provides delicious cocktails. Heavily damaged by the gigantic explosion that ripped through Beirut in August 2020, the club finally reopened in December 2022. Founder Jade can be found spinning alongside an extensive list of resident DJs, while recent guests have included Nicole Moudaber, Adriatique and Stephan Bodzin. The Grand Factory crew are proudly progressive, running schemes to aid refugees, encourage recycling and even joining a full-scale revolution over the years.
