Lined with wooden bookshelves and large windows overlooking a cluster of yachts in Zaitunay Bay, the cozy library at Le Yacht Club Beirut induces images of graying men sipping amber-colored liquids, smoking cigars and discussing topics that may not be truly important but seem so because of the soundproof walls.The club will host a soft opening in about a month. Kanaan started in an open lounge area that looks out through glass-paned walls onto the club's infinity pool and outdoor terrace – all of which overlook the Mediterranean Sea and passageway for boats accessing the marina.Le Yacht Club Beirut already has 56 paid members and eventually hopes to count 100 among its founding group. Their neighbors, the owners of the yachts next door, could make great candidates to be recommended or handpicked by the club's board. Kanaan is also a member at l'Automobile et Touring Club du Liban, better known by its acronym: ATCL.Once the club opens, Kanaan expects a total membership of 500 with a waiting list, of course.
