Experimental Beach Ibiza
- Night Out
- Great View
May 11, 2018
Created by the team who brought us Experimental Cocktail Clubs in London, Paris and New York, the drinks here may be of the same exceptional quality, but the feel is very different.
The beach club decor looks to 60s Ibiza, channeling a hippy, bohemian vibe with nautical shades, natural wood and coloured glassware that catches the sunlight bouncing off the sea.
Yoga classes are also on offer, naturally. Inko Garat and Peter Hanmer from the Paris and London ECC outposts respectively have worked together to create a cocktail list that embodies the spirit of ECC with a summer, beachy twist.
The club’s founders are renowned for their experimental approach and love for rare and unusual spirits; here the margarita is given a hit of local liqueur hierbas and the Pimm’s Punch comes with pomegranate and pineapple – served in sharing punch bowls formed from conch shells and pineapples.
And the wine list has been compiled by the sommelier of the famous Compagnie des vins Surnaturels in Paris.
The food menu also draws on ECC’s French roots, with an emphasis on fresh fish – chef Gerard Ortiz Alandis has worked at El Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca, but before all that he was a fisherman.
DJs provide the soundtrack from sunset onwards, spinning a beach-friendly mix of bossa nova and reggae.
Opening dates: the Experimental Beach Ibiza usually opens mid april so check on their website before planning any trip!
