Two spaces in a nightclub complex at the Lebanese ski resort of Zaarour –the Frozen Cherry bar and Dublin Room dance club — were recently equipped with BlacklineX loudspeakers from Martin Audio.
Frozen Cherry is a sunset bar in the highest point of the Zaarour mountains, offering a view of Lebanon above the clouds. The unusual name comes from the unique cherry shape seen when looking at the venue from the top of the Zaarour peaks. The Dublin Room dance club, housed in a venue with an industrial aesthetic, specializes in house and techno music presented by DJs and also hosts live bands.
The unique concept was developed by Nasri and Maher Choueiry, owners of several F&B and design outlets, who come from a creative background in architecture and engineering. They’re supported by Elie Zouein with business development.
It was the venue’s first experience working with Technosound, Martin Audio’s Lebanese distributor, after the company’s Charbel Fahed had met with Nasri. “I proposed that they install a Martin Audio system,” he says. “Prior to that they had been renting in another brand. Since these are two of the most exciting venues in Lebanon, I had to choose a unique, powerful, and clear system. This is why I proposed the X15s after hearing them at ISE.”
Frozen Cherry has been equipped with Blackline X15 two-way loudspeakers and dual X118 single 18-inch subwoofers while the Dublin Room utilizes X15 and X12 loudspeakers joined by four X118 subs. Design support was provided by Martin Audio product engineer Simon Purse, who was responsible for specifying both clubs.
