In a city where most of what we do revolves around eating, drinking, then eating some more, we’re happy to report that we’ve finally found an activity that doesn’t involve either!

We found an activity so far-removed from the normal that you won't believe it's right here in the city. If you’re looking for the coolest, new thing to do in Beirut, let us introduce you to Clue Club. Situated in the Marignan Centre on Cairo Street in Hamra, Clue Club is the perfect place to bring a date, your family, your friends, or even your colleagues. 

We tried it out ourselves, and we had the time of our lives! The concept is pretty straightforward but it’s the challenge that makes it such a fun experience. And with so many routes your mission can take, it's the most unexpected dose of fun we've ever had in Beirut.

Teams are made up of between two to five people - we were a team of three. The game consists of you and your team being locked inside a room for 60 minutes, with one mission: to gain freedom. This escape game plays out like a live action mystery where you go through a series of riddles and puzzles to unlock clues to complete your mission. As soon as that clock started ticking, we all felt the pressure. Adrenaline was pumping, brains were whirring trying to figure out how to solve the next clue, only to get to another mind-boggling clue.

There are two different levels you can choose between, depending on how daring you are feeling that day. 

The Intermediate Level Game is called “Golden Eye Diamond”. This scenario enters around a very valuable diamond being locked in an ultra secure bank vault in Hamra. Your team’s objective is to steal that diamond and not get caught! 

Here's a preview:

And the Advanced Level, “Explosive Gentleman”, is set back in time, during WWII under the Nazi regime. The mission here is to defuse an atomic bomb by decrypting messages and solving different challenges.

The riddles are designed by a professional magician and mentalist, which is why they were such challenging mind-teasers. This isn't your run of the mill game, this requires some serious brain power.

It is clear that the entire experience, from the setting of the mission to the riddles being solved, is so detail-oriented and professionally executed that you feel as if you are in a parallel universe. 

Cameras follow your progress through the escape room and Clue Club’s employees guide you through the game when times get tough; and at the end of our mission we had managed to use our brains, laugh, bond, and genuinely have a great time.

This is an activity that it is great for families and adults alike. You can sign up to take on the challenge at Clue Club from 5:30pm to 11:30 pm between Thursdays and Sundays. Instead of simply going out to the same places you always have, why don't you hit up Clue Club and see if you can complete a mission? We did!
