As we continue the My City series, we take a trip to the island of Ibiza. This week's tour comes from local Electro House duo The Mambo Brothers, owners of the legendary Caf_x0005_e Mambo in the centre of the sunset strip in San Antonio, Ibiza. The boys have been part of the evolution of electronic music since the beginning having grown up in Ibiza and being exposed to many of the island's legendary DJs.
With summer 2015 promising to be another big one for The Mambo Brothers - kicking off at Pacha with Pete Tong on May 20th and at Privilege Opening Party on the 29th May - we caught up with the duo to get the lowdown on the best spots to visit on the White Island.
The best place for a cocktail?
Savannah, it has an amazing terrace cocktail bar, with a unique gin list and fresh fruit cocktails. The Mambojito, made with Mambo Hierbas, is a must do.
Where’s the best place for a luxury dinner?
Lio has one of the greatest views on the island, looking out onto the old town. Not to mention the show while you're getting your dinner served is very entertaining.
Where do you go to get lost?
There are two places on the islands that we love. Firstly, a little beach outside San Antonio called Cala Gracioneta. It has one of the cleanest crystal clear waters of Ibiza, it also has one of the best paellas, and you have to make sure that you try the cava sangria. The other spot is can Balafia, a restaurant up north where we go with friends to disconnect.
The best place to watch the sun go down?
Cafe Mambo, we don't need to describe why. Just do it...
Aguas Blancas Beach, after a great party, its lovely to sit down, and put your feet on the sand or.... go skinny dipping!
Where’s your favourite place on the island and why?
San Antonio sunset strip. Simply magic, every day has the most special moment of the day. We see more than 20,000 people come down every day for a good old sunset. It's definitely a must do in Ibiza.
There are lot of good new music at places like Sankeys, DC-10, Pacha, Vista Club...Ibiza is the spiritual home of the dance music!
The best place for celebrity spotting?
Pacha VIP, especially on F*** me I’m Famous, Flower Power, Illetes beach in Formentera and Lio of course...
The best place for relaxing?
At the rocks in Punta Galera, great spot to meditate, have a swim and let the time go by.
The best parties on the island?
There are sooo many good parties on the island to choose just one…Insane at Pacha, Defected at Amnesia, Paradise in DC-10...
Best place for cliff jumping?
Benirras, Atlantis rocks and some small island in Conejara Islands. Last summer we did lots of cliff jumping with our good friend Steve Aoki, so we got to discover so many. If you like adventure Ibiza is the place for you!
