Like no other cabaret in Beirut, like no metro station in the world

Metro al Madina is a micro-theater patched into a hybrid cabaret hall and live acts venue. With a versatile stage, a multi-platform seating area rearranged to accommodate tables and couches, a spacious backstage, it offers a very customizable space for events.

While most events we host are performances by guest acts from the local and regional scene, Metro al Madina also presents its highly addictive cabaret shows among other in-house productions.

We like to think we’re promoting a culture of diversity and openness.

Mission

Our goal is simple: provide a stage where all kinds of scenic arts can flourish, and  where the wide public is invited to chose from an extremely rich events agenda.

Whether you hand-pick your events like cherry or blindly dive in regularly to discover on the go, we will always seek to provide a warm and open environment.

Objectives

  • Restore the soul, meaning and purpose of cabarets
  • Produce colorful and immersive musical shows
  • Provide rich and varied quality entertainment
  • Host with joy and pride the local independent scene
  • Encourage up-and-coming talents to perform in front of wider audiences
  • Favor social mixing

Built from rubble and ashes with love and hard work, we hope to see generations of artists set feet on our stage!

The Station

A friendly little bar we affectionately call "the metro station" is your first stop if you're early for an event or just looking to have a drink or a bite. It's also a place where loitering is allowed after main events!

We boast a rather complete spirits inventory and are cocky about our very engaging single malt offerings.
