Platis Gialos might get a new beach club sometime this spring. In late April, the logo shown above for Lohan Beach House appeared on the Facebook page for what used to be the Monarch beach club at Platis Gialos, with a note that said “Coming in May.” The image and Facebook page mysteriously disappeared less than 10 days later. If Lohan Beach House does open for this season, it would be the second Lohan venue in Greece — last fall Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan partnered with Greek entrepreneur Dennis Papageorgiou to open the Lohan nightclub in Athens.
