In 1984, B 018 was initiated by Naji Gebran Who developed the concept of Musical Therapy.
Its name originated from a code number of Naji Gebran’s apartment, where the concept first was born. In 1993, the concept was moved to a warehouse in an industrial sector of Beirut.
The unusual music and eccentric atmosphere are the signature of the B 018 concept and it became The night scene in Beirut.
Finally, in 1998, the B 018 concept moved to its present location at the Quarantaine and gave a visual dimension to its concept through the architecture of Bernard Khoury.*
