Café del Mar, the prestigious brand of beach clubs originally from the white island, inaugurates on May 27th, 2017 in Barcelona the new and spectacular Cafe del Mar Club Barcelona – Port Fòrvm with multipurpose spaces dedicated to live in 360º a unique experience, whose philosophy combines the spirit of Ibiza and the avant-garde of Barcelona.
Its strong point is the Sunset Experience. A concept focused on enjoyment in every way. The club emerges with the idea of being a leisure point for both the day and the night and will enhance the Sunset Experience, the experience on board the Café del Mar Boat that will leave every evening to enjoy the sunset on the high seas and overlooking the front of Barcelona.
An exclusive and versatile space
Located in the building of the former Port-Fòrvm Captaincy, which was a finalist in 2005 of the FAD Awards to Architecture and the Mies van der Rohe awards, has 4,000 m2 destined to live an authentic Café del Mar experience and consists of several spaces distributed in four floors:
On the main floor, we find the entrance, with a variable LED lighting integration and exclusive valet service.
In the first floor, there is the reception, the Shopping Shop, a multipurpose terrace for non-conventional acts, a photocall and, outside, the Pool Zone, a space in which there will be a pool, a show cooking area and the stage for events to be held at night.
In the second floor, we have the Club for members and for special and corporate events; this space has a VIP area with private terrace.
The third floor, the Restaurant of haute cuisine, headed by Chef Juan Jiménez, space that will have a terrace overlooking the sea and the stage of the Pool Zone.
Finally, on the fourth floor we find the Sky Terrace, the haute cocktail bar leaded by the mixologist Daniel Sempere.
In addition to this, we have the Café del Mar Boat, moored in front of the club and that will propitiate the most spectacular Sunset Experience in Barcelona.
The concept is to offer a unique and unrepeatable experience, combining the relaxing days with the boom of the night parties. Therefore, it will also offer DETOX experiences in the mornings, to recover from the party of the previous day and prepare for that evening.
It is worth mentioning the participants of this great project and the effort that are achieving. The management team together with an internal team in offices and high-level restoration. In the kitchen, we highlight the chef Juan Jiménez, finalist of the Chef of the Year 2012 and that has worked with prestigious chefs like Martín Berasategui or Santi Santamaría, and defines us his cuisine as close, which takes care of the seasonal product and expresses the taste of the sea in its dishes.
On the Sky Terrace, the young and promising mixologist Daniel Sempere, whose career is set because he has worked at Dry Martini, at the opening of OneOcean Club or at Mutis Cocktail Club. He will bring fresh, tropical cocktails with recognizable flavors but with products from other cultures. In the show department, Peter Brown, the Booker Director of Café del Mar Club Barcelona who will also be a DJ resident in the club and who has extensive experience in discos such as Pacha Ibiza, Pacha Barcelona, Space Ibiza, Bora Bora Ibiza, etc., playing with DJs like David Guetta, Bob Sinclar or Erick Morillo.
The origins Café del Mar Ibiza
What was born as a beach bar in the Sant Antoni beach on June 20th, 1980 -a project made by Ramón Guiral Broto, Carlos Andrea and José Les, and designed by the architect Lluís Güell- rose like foam after a fervent success among lovers of the white island. Three points that have made this brand differentiated the concept: Chill Out music, sunsets in the beach and good drinks in a relaxed atmosphere. Their distinctive Ibiza spirit led them to produce their own music Chill Out, Lounge, Ambient and Chill House Balearic, which ended up being a resounding success at international level.
Now, Café del Mar Club Barcelona joins the brand of beach clubs with a cosmopolitan philosophy reminiscent of the Ibiza spirit, enhancing the area of Port Fòrvm and Sant Adrià del Besòs as the new hot spot in the metropolitan area of Barcelona.
