DJ Mag, the world’s leading publication on music and DJs just released its Top 100 Clubs List for 2019, and guess what? Two Lebanese clubs made it to the global ranking.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with its work, DJ Mag is a British magazine founded for electronic dance music fans and DJs.
Every year, the magazine holds a worldwide poll and releases a list of 100 of the most popular nightclubs in the world.
Lebanese-owned nightclub WHITE Dubai and The Grand Factory both made it to the competitive list, ranking 16th and 99th respectively.
The WHITE Dubai is an extension of the original WHITE club that opened in Beirut in 2006.
After its huge success, the club’s Lebanese owners branched out to Dubai in 2013 to open a venue on the Meydan Racecourse Grandstand Rooftop.
The club can fit 2,500 people and has been the venue of recent performances by Rick Ross, Sean Paul, Jason Derulo, and Wiz Khalifa.
Beating the likes of Omnia in Las Vegas and The Warehouse Project in Manchester, WHITE Dubai was voted the 16th best place to party in the whole world.
It is also the only club in the Middle East to make the top 50.
The Grand Factory
Also on the list is Lebanon’s very own The Grand Factory. It made the cut and was voted the 99th best club on Earth by the readers of DJ Mag!
Located on a former industrial roof in Karantina (Beirut), the venue boasts a panoramic view of the lively city and a top-of-the-notch sound system.
It hosts live concerts, international DJ sets, and a lineup varied enough to please all tastes.
Taking the cut, the Brazilian prolific Green Valley was crowned the #1 club in the world for the second year in a row, and the fourth time ever.
