Lindsay Lohan opened up the new LOHAN Beach House Mykonos in Greece as her second nightclub, even though she says she is averse to partying and to the party girl label.
The star had a soft opening of her beach club in Kalo Livadi, Mykonos this Saturday. Although the actress does not actually own the club, she lent her name to the establishment. The real owners are Greek investors that prefer to remain anonymous.
In 2016, Lohan set up the Lohan nightclub in Greece with business partner, Dennis Papageorgiou, who is no longer affiliated with the project. The club gained fame for its ‘pro-refugee’ status, meaning that Lohan pledged her share of the profits from the club to refugee causes.
Ahead of its opening, Scott Carlsen, Lohan’s publicist and manager released a video advertising the nightclub. The video featured men and women partying, along with drinks and food being presented and served.

Although the Parent Trap actress is now affiliated with two clubs and is on her way to owning a third, in a recent interview with Emirates Woman, she said she does not like being called a party girl.
She said, “I get so uncomfortable with that word, party. People are still stuck in the past, of the stories I had in LA and I hate it. It was all lies.”
The 31-year-old actress said the misconception about her being a party girl is actually what propelled her to start opening clubs in Greece. “That’s why I opened my club in Greece, because I thought what’s the one thing that people have most misconstrued about me? It was probably about me always going to clubs, and so I was just like, ‘well, I’ll make my own’. And now I never go to clubs!” she explained.
The actress also talked about her experiences in Dubai, having recently moved there for a fresh start. She said, “I moved here for that purpose – I don’t have to be publicly seen all the time, or discuss what I’m doing.”
She added that she appreciates that Dubai is more centered around the real world rather than gossip, saying, “Moving here was a fresh start. You hear more about real current events rather than celebrity gossip, which I really appreciate.”
She also said that while people think she moved to get away from having to work, she actually gets a lot more done in her new location. She explained, “It’s funny because people don’t realize that I actually do work when I’m here. But I get more done because I don’t have the scrutiny and fixation on what I’m doing every second. I work all the time; my mind never stops.”
After her Mykonos club is up and running, the Parent Trap actress plans to open an establishment in the island of Rhodes.
