SkyBar holds a certain swagger that every other club in the region has failed miserably in attaining. The Beirut rooftop superclub might’ve stumbled in the DJmag rankings in 2011, but that was summer 2010’s doing. Summer 2011 promises a revamped and refurbished SkyBar experience.
The club’s decor has completely changed and the construction works were clearly noticed if you passed by BIEL the past winter and spring. How it looks now is still somewhat of a mystery, but one that will be unveiled this week.
On Thursday June 16, SkyBar will officially open. But as is customary, the true opening will happen a day before with the club’s biggest fans and loyal clientele. This opening party, and the massive closing party, are unrivaled in extravagance and eccentricity with occasional surprises like all those present not being charged for the night’s reveling!
Another thing we’re used to when it comes to SkyBar is the main act of the night. Snoop Dogg, David Guetta and 50 Cent are just a glimpse of the international heavyweight artists that drop by Sky Bar and mingle with the clubbers.
This year, it’s going to be T-Pain! The god of auto-tuning with the unmistakable robotic voice, eccentric look and shiny accessories will be “On A Sky Bar” (versus “On A Boat” which I’ve taken the liberty of embedding below)
I will unfortunately not be in Lebanon on the 15th cause I’m still in Qatar! So, no review for that night =( But if you can manage to get a spot on Wednesday the 15th, I strongly recommend you wear your best outfit and go enjoy the glitz and glam for a night, away from all the underground party scene I’ve been trying to brainwash everyone with =P
