Open air Music Hall scheduled for end-July
Two venues planned
for London and Istanbul
Michel Elefteriades will open a second local branch of his Beirut-based live music club, ‘Music Hall’, by the end of July. The new venue will be located on the Beirut waterfront area, near the KidzMondo theme park, with a capacity of 1,000 people.
Elefteriades said more Music Hall venues are already in the pipeline, starting with the UK: “The opening in London is currently being studied. The British capital is renowned for its theatrical heritage and culture, and concepts such as ours are very welcome there.” Execution will start as soon as the paperwork is ready.
Another Music Hall is expected in Istanbul. “Turkey has great potential. It is booming as a new international touristic destination, and we have many Turkish clients who already visit us in Beirut,” Elefteriades said. However, the Istanbul branch will be delayed until the situation in Turkey settles. More projects in other capitals are in the pipeline.
Elefteriades opened a Music Hall in Dubai in 2012. The Dubai branch has a 500 square meters stage, the largest stage in the Middle East. The venue can accommodate around 2,000 seated people.
Music Hall was first launched in Beirut in 2003 by Elefteriades Productions.
