As for the news below, it was written on September 6, 2011:

Ya fette7 ya rezze2. It’s 9:10 am, and already things are getting exciting…but not in a good way.

Seems like the Lebanese government loves to hunt down gay clubs in September.

Remember how last year the government shut down Acid? Well apparently, Ghostbar has also been forced to close!

I found out about this news thanks to Roy & Big_Perto who both posted comments on the blog concerning this issue. So thanks a lot you guys.

It’s worthy to note that Acid & Ghostbar were run by the same management. Coincidence?

I’m getting sick of drawing a red X on gay club logos.

but here it goes…

Bye Bye Acid. w Bye Bye Ghostbar.

UPDATE: (Afternoon of September 6, 2011)

I passed by and took pics of Ghostbar.

Was the first time I see the place.

It is indeed closed “bil sham3 el a7mar”.

According to the paper posted on the door, the decision to close the club was issued yesterday (September 5).

UPDATE:

Ghostbar Marketing Representative posted on my blog. According to him, the closure is not related to any gay issue, and the club will reopen this weekend.

Bye Acid. Hello Ghostbar?

So what’s this I hear about Ghostbar being the new Acid?

Ghostbar has apparently replaced Chocolate Club, in the Freeway area (Dekwaneh), and is the same management as Acid.

I’m thinkin of tryin out this place this weekend. Maybe Friday.

Did any of y’all try it? Any good?
