Casino du Liban is actually a casino located in Maameltein, Jounieh in Lebanon, 22 km north of Beirut.
With an area of about 35,000 square meters, the casino has around 400 slot machines and 60 gaming tables. It has a showroom, night club, theater, banquet facility and five restaurants. The casino was initial opened in 1959. It closed in 1989 and reopened in 1996 immediately after a $50 million reconstruction and refurbishment project.
In his memoir from the international hotel small business, Shadow of the Sun: Travels And Adventures in the World of Hotels, Peter J. Venison wrote that the Casino du Liban “was elegant, but the cabaret was spectacular and rivaled something that Las Vegas could offer”. He also described it as a backdrop of a James Bond novel where clientele in the richest elite of European and Arabian societies ventured into the casino in formal black-tie attire.
