Interestingly our hostel in beirut had moved to a new building recently. IT was still underconstruction, but our floor was pretty clean and therewas hot water... so nocomplaints. BUt then around 2:00 AM we heard this awesome thumping noise. I quickly realized it was the bass from a set of very loud speakers and went back to sleep. When I woke up at 7:00 in themorning the sound was still going. That was on a friday inght. We discovered that on friday and saturday a club operated out of the basement beneath the hostel.
This club opened at 2 and closed when the last patrons left. On Friday that was about 8 AM. On Saturday morning that was about 10:00 AM.
We were allowed free entry and free drinks. Unfortunately we could not take advantage of this generosity.. unlike other people staying in the hotel, sleeping until 6 PM was just not an option. Although according to our host if youre lebanese you just dont need sleep at all.
