(SPOT.ph) When the going gets tough, and city life becomes too much to deal with, everyone usually ends up dreaming of going on a tropical escape—think palm trees, sandy shores, crystal-blue waters, and an ice-cold drink in your hand. Unfortunately, you can’t always get what you want. But you can always visit the newest dining spot in the Metro.
This summer, urbanites in Manila can experience the signature energy and vibe of Cebu sans the plane ride as Ibiza Beach Club opens in Bonifacio Global City. The place looks exactly the same as the one in Mövenpick Hotel in Mactan—only this time it’s three times the size.
The 1,000-seater flagship restaurant, which is set to open on April 16, has a beachside vibe with just the right splash of sophistication. There are plush seats surrounded with water, which is great for al fresco drinking, a hot tub area complete with showers and changing rooms, an exceptional center stage with main seating area for people who want to watch the shows, and even a First Class dining section which is perfect for those who want to have more private functions.
Ibiza Beach Club offers a full circle experience where you can have a delicious meal paired with some live entertainment. No mediocre food or watered-down drinks here; Ibiza Beach Club actually manages to hit the sweet spot.
“Our tagline is ‘Lifestyle Dining and Unrivalled Entertainment.’ Basically, we’re giving you everything. You shouldn’t just have good food; you shouldn’t just have good entertainment. You should have both,” said Meg Osmeña-Eteve, Communications Director of the Manny O. Group of Companies.
The menu consists of various selections of house-made bruschettas, jamon serrano, gambas, imported cheeses, and other tapas that you can pair with their award-winning Manny O wines. There’s also an à la carte menu but their Balearic-inspired, signature 15-Course Grill (introductory price of P2,500) is definitely a must-try.
Selections from the Salad Buffet
You can start your hearty feast with a salad buffet and your choice of side dish. Chefs will then serve unlimited churrasco from a skewer directly onto your plate. It includes grilled meats and seafood like the Filet Mignon, Angus Rib-Eye Steak, Baby Back Ribs, Ostrich Meat, New Zealand Lamb, buttery Rock Lobsters or Salmon, Tiger Prawns, Cuttlefish, Chicken, Crispy Pork Belly, and Beef Short Ribs, to name a few. Enjoy the sumptuous meal paired with refreshing cocktails like the Ibiza Sour, Mimosa, Red Sangria, or Vodka Martini.
A movie musical performance
Every single night, guests can enjoy different performances while leisurely dining or drinking. The musical productions sometimes include daring exhibitions, Broadway-inspired performances, and even movie musical sequences, complete with lavish costume designs and skillful choreography. There are also some nights when they feature a showband or a DJ.
“For urban jungles like Manila, I think you guys need escapes—two, four hours in a day—and sometimes the only option for escape within the city is clubbing. We don’t want our senses to be dulled all the time with loud music and the intense drinking, so it’s more of having your senses wide open but while still relaxing,” says Meg.
With their mix of good food and good entertainment, Ibiza Beach Club may soon become a standout in Manila’s dining scene. We wouldn’t be surprised if it soon becomes the town’s next social hub.
