In the chaotic heave of Beirut’s nightlife, MAD is one nightclub that lives up to its name, touting the motto, ‘Sanity is overrated’. Fairly new to the scene, MAD has been described as the ‘indoor version’ of White, another staple club located on a rooftop in downtown Beirut. A line-up of several fine Lebanese DJs do a fantastic job of mashing up deep house and RnB tracks and remixes and the pulsating grooves are taken one further by MAD’s psychedelic interior. Rows of bench-style plastic couches look eerie under diamond purple LED lights that criss-cross the ceiling, coming together with the pumping music in a dizzying effect. If you’re looking for a unique and only semi-lucid atmosphere with good music, where sanity is truly overrated, then MAD is the place to go.
