Awesome DJ's, lovely music ,great atmosphere...it's always crowded...I advise you to make a reservation otherwise it's difficult to find a place even at the bar...tables are too small...prices are high...I've been there many times...parties won't start before 12 am but continue till 6am...you will dance and have fun...there is 80's night on Thursdays and other special events on special days...

I have read many reviews here and was not surprised by some of the negative reviews. This is why, I advise people to read my review and know exactly what they are up to, before they venture into visiting BO18. First of all, this is a place I used to go to when I was 18, now I am 2... More

People from the main entrance was really rude with us, music was also bad. We went on 80s night. Not what we expected at all!

People go to this place for after parties. When I told my Lebanese friends I'm visiting Lebanon, they all (100%) recommended it. To be honest it's a different experience knowing this place was a bomb shelter and it has an automatic roof. People were on a lot of stuff, the music was hardcore and loud and the place was dark...

My friends and I was super excited about going to BO18 after we found out it was a historical bomb shelter that was transformed into a club. When we arrived we were disappointed. If you are into techno music, this club is for you. However, we did not enjoy it at all. I wish I we would have went to... More
