Entertainment & Nightlife in Syria

The nightlife in Damascus is fairly tame, compare to Beirut in Lebanon. The Syrian Government has built a multifunction arts complex that includes an opera house and a concert hall. The Damascus Symphony performs mainly during special events and there is not a regular concert season. Some diplomatic missions, including the US Embassy, sponsor artists and performers from their respective countries. Once in a while, there are pop concerts featuring well-known Arab singers. The Syrian Government sponsors festivals in Aleppo and in Bosra.

Movie theatres in Damascus feature Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian films, as well as American, French and Italian. Most are in the original language and subtitled. Prices are inexpensive. There is a bi-annual International Film Festival in Damascus.

There are several diplomatic missions and business concerns that maintain pubs. Most are open to the expatriate community and have a variety of offerings. Some feature scheduled activities, including billiards, bridge, darts and hiking. Many have bars and snackbars and import foods and drinks from their native countries. There are also nightclubs offering karaoke, dancing and floor shows.

Most major hotels in Damascus have bars and night clubs. The Christian Quarter in Damascus, near Bab Touma, has quite a number of bars and clubs which are lively and popular among the locals and the expatriate community.
