Café del Mar is reinvented and arrives in Barcelona turned into a multispace where you can enjoy market food, live music, chillout areas and even a sunset right on the Mediterranean. Sounds good, doesn’t it? We tell you everything about the world’s largest sunset club!
An idea made in Ibiza
40 years ago Ibiza was kind of an undiscovered paradise, there were still no big clubs nor crowds, and bohemians and hippies lived together with the local people on the white island. Within a few years, concretely in 1980, the Café del Mar was founded, a privileged place from which many say that the best sunset on the island is seen and which today has become an icon you can’t miss at the island.
Now, after 37 years of history and having created their own record label, the Ibiza concept arrives in Barcelona on a large scale; More than 4,000 square meters, 4 floors, a club with capacity for 1,000 people, in addition to the city club with more VIP and private areas, and only a few tram stops from Twentyú!
The sunset, the expected moment
Although the club is also open at night, the promoters of Café del Mar Barcelona want to keep the club as a place to enjoy during the day while waiting for the expected moment; the sunset. Now the sunset experience is also lived on the high seas aboard the Café del Mar Boat, where you’re going to be received with a welcome cocktail, circus and dance performances and music with the Barcelona skyline in the background.
As night falls Café del Mar is transformed into a nightclub with the performance of international DJs like Erick Morillo, who was at the opening party, or César de Melero, who will set the rhythm until the sun rises again. The ticket price is 15 euros.
Relax, music and much more
But the new club not only offers chill and good music, but also a surprising culinary experience with Chef Juan Jiménez, who has received several cooking awards in recent years. The gastronomic proposal comes close to the sea and focuses on the Mediterranean market cuisine; fresh Fish from the market, old cow’s ribeye, oysters or tuna tataki, among other options.
If you still want to refresh yourself after feast, you have two options: jump in the pool to take a swim or go up to ‘The Sky’, the roof that tops the building. There, you can enjoy amazing views in front of the sea and also taste cocktails by Daniel Sampere, the former bartender of Mutis, one of the most famous clandestine afterworks at Barcelona.
If you can’t swing by Café del Mar in Summer, don’t worry, because with colder weather its doors will remain open, but only from Thursday to Saturday at night.
