Damage From 4th August Explosion
The deadly blast on 4th August devastated Beirut, with an 22km radius, among the most powerful non-nuclear explosions in history.
The Grand Meshmosh Hotel was less than 1km from the blast.
The explosion blew out all of our windows and many doors. The kitchen roof collapsed - fortunately no one was inside. Furniture was turned upside-down, bathrooms were broken and shutters were shattered. The co-working space was completely blown apart (see cover photo).
Damage on the humans around us as well as on the buildings and facilities of The Grand Meshmosh Hotel was heartbreaking, but it is only making our determination stronger - the determination to be part of the change makers in our dear and beloved Lebanon.

Who Are We?
The Grand Meshmosh Hotel was created with the perspective of inspiring change by sticking to firm ethical and societal values such as non-discrimination, tolerance, respect of the environment, commitment to fair prices, among others.
We have been suffering financially since mid October due to strong political and financial instability and struggling to survive since the Covid-19 lockdown in mid March.
Help us rebuild our hotel so we can host you once more at The Grand Meshmosh Hotel.
