Located along a healthy stretch of the Kalo Livadi beach in Mykonos, Greece, the Lohan Beach House is officially open. Lindsay Lohan, America’s favorite former troubled teen, licensed her name last year to a club in Athens but was bought out of that project. She decided to try again and exercise the creative control she felt she lacked in Athens. So she designed the Mykonos club down to the very playlist you can hear throughout the space. It is home to a wide mix of clientele, which is by Lohan’s design. Another club is set to open in Rhodes and the former star says she is working on plans to design a Lohan island in Dubai.

“There’s a business side to my life now, but I’m not in America, so no one knows about it, which is nice for me,” Lohan said to the New York Times. “Because I get to actually focus on the result of things.”

Lohan wants the public to know very little about her personal life. She wants people to understand that she is a “normal, nice person. A good person.” But she also wants the past to stay in the past. She claims that the public has never known who she really is or what she is really like, and she’s doing everything she can to keep it that way for now. Her own safety and well-being are her chief concerns.

But her chaotic past has a way of lingering into her present. The beach where she opened her club, for example, is the same one where her former fiancée, Russian socialite Ego Tarabasov, was filmed assaulting Lohan.

“It happened, here in Mykonos, on the beach. And that was the moment where I switched and I was like, ‘I’m going to take control of my life completely, and fire everyone and just rehire them when I’m ready,’”Lohan said to the Times. “And that’s why I’m here today, because it was on that beach where I got hit. I said, ‘You know what? If there’s anything I can do, I’m going to get that beach. It’s going to be my beach.’”
