ETHOS

The Ballroom Blitz is a music venue with a robust program of live gigs, DJ sets, and workshops that transition through three rooms.

Music is at the center, and not simply a conducive element for a party; a club that is at once dynamic, transformative and diverse. The venue’s programming insists on a thorough hunt for emerging talent both locally and globally, alongside established names from the industry, fostering a collaborative club culture in Beirut.

Music, however, is not limited to the clubbing and concert experience. In an attempt to engage in wider discussions, The Ballroom Blitz seeks to provide an outlet for musical and audiovisual production with seminars and workshops, and publishes a print and online journal that feature album reviews, interviews, and news about the clubbing and music scene.
