Located on Hamra main street on a vibrant neighborhood of Beirut, Metro al Madina showcases its artistic commitment from the moment you go down the staircase through the small underground bar serving as antechamber. A quaint old fashioned stage faces rows of gently sloped seats,...More

Been here twice, a great place to watch great quality productions. The theatre itself is vintage. The moment you set foot into the lobby, and your transformed into a different era. Just great, how they could maintain the atmosphere of the seventies. The Bar area,...More

We went to see Bar Farouk. This show "revives the artistic scene of Beirut from the 30s to the 70s, from popular theatre to cabaret music and dance...". It was really fun! Even though we don't speak Arabic, we absolutely enjoyed the show!
