Why Beirut night life is booming

because for young unmarried Lebanese in their twenties and thirties, that's the only escape from parents' scrutinizing and investigative eyes, for it is easier to fight over late partying than over independence and sexual freedoms, for family evenings are heavy, too heavy sometimes. Those less privileged to afford partying or party fights, get married.
You don't believe me? Ask.
Oh and those who managed to break free, stopped partying!
What does that make of parents and nightclub owners?
Yes. And that all only comes at a price. Ask those young Lebanese how much they have spent or how much they have lost on the way.
The city is rocking over its own dead bodies or is it dead bodies rolling over their own dead city?
