It’s been a while since I’ve leaked something. Perhaps it’s because very few new venues and events have been in the pipeline. But, when I saw the teaser campaign for something called “Seven Sisters” on Instagram, I just had to know more.
Seven Sisters is going to be Beirut’s newest nightlife venue. It’s located on the Beirut Waterfront, close to The Garten and The O1NE. The huge club and lounge will have plenty of greenery. Think of it as a large garden in Beirut’s expanding concrete complexes and skycrapers, especially in that area which is undergoing a massive infrastructure upgrade.
The focus of the club will be on the food, with an early sunset opening time and plenty of live cooking stations that’ll include a sashimi bar, steaks and several other cuisines. The music will be loungy, uplifting House music on the weekends, with plenty of local names already on board. During the week, live entertainment will happen at Seven Sisters, for those of you who enjoy that every now and then.
When I was learning about this from a source close to the project, I asked how expensive it’ll be, given the many different lounge areas and aiming for a slightly older crowd (24+), and he assured me the average bill for dinner and drinks is going to be around $50 per person, which is less than existing lounges and rooftops in Beirut that offer a good dinner alongside loud music and drinks.
All in all, the Waterfront area is getting brand new venue that I’m excited to see become a reality. It should be ready to open right after Eid, at the end of July. It’ll be nice to have such a big, new venue in Beirut after we’ve gotten comfortable with the regulars. I’ll try to find out more over the next few weeks and will keep checking the construction progress, till then, here are a couple of renders of what it’ll look like.
