Travel: City Files

The Mambo Brothers’ Ibiza

The DJs and Café Mambo owners give us the lowdown

The Destination File is your chance to get to know somewhere through the eyes of some of UJ’s faves. From chefs to DJs, our insiders will show you the ins and outs of their favourite places. This week The Mambo Brothers introduce us to their Ibiza.

Hotel

Hostal La Torre

Hostal La Torre has amazing views of the sunset, 17 bedrooms, and a restaurant with great food and drinks. And don’t be fooled by the name – it’s called a “hostal” but it’s really not.

Top tip: Reserve the room called “Cap Nono” – it’s our favourite.

Restaurants

Villa Mercedes

Villa Mercedes is a little oasis in San Antonio that overlooks the marina. It’s great at night if you feel like having cocktails, as you feel like you’re in a Spanish garden.

Top tip: Book ahead and try to go on a night with live music.

Can Pujol

It’s nothing fancy but Can Pujol has literally been here for generations, and the grilled fish is some of the best you can have on the island.

Top tip: Don’t forget to order the alioli – it’s the best ever!

Fresh

Fresh is on the sunset strip. Head here for their burgers, the perfect cure for a late night.

Top tip: If you go after sunset, it’s a more chilled out place on the sunset strip and perfect for cocktails.

Clubs/Bars

Eden

Eden is in San Antonio, so it’s the perfect walking distance if you’re staying in the town.

Top tip: Go on a Sunday, they have Defected parties with the best house music!!

Pacha

Pacha was renovated over the winter and the DJ booth is literally in the middle of the dancefloor.

Top tip: Head to the terrace – it’s where you’ll find all the DJs and regulars.

Beach

Sa Caleta

Sa Caleta is a great place to go all year round, and there’s also a good restaurant there if you get hungry.

Top tip: Don’t leave Sa Caleta without doing some exploring – walk up to the left of the beach to find amazing Phoenician ruins!

Other

Es Molí de la Sal

If you’re stopping by Formentera, don’t miss Es Molí de Sal. It’s a chic restaurant in a renovated mill with amazing food, and you can sit on the terrace for hours looking out at Ibiza’s mystical Es Vedrà.

Top tip: Lobster. Period!

Don’t leave without buying to take home?

Olive oil from Ibiza. It’s actually really nice.

The Mambo Brothers

The Mambo Brothers

UJ faves Christian and Alan Anadon, better known as the Mambo Brothers, were born and raised in Ibiza whilst listening to the best DJs at the Café Mambo. Not only are they now global DJs in their own right, but they’re constantly evolving the ever expanding Mambo Group too. They’ve been busy this year: they released their track ‘Sundogs’, they’ve got a Mambo stage at We Are FSTVL and Tomorrowland, and have opened up Casa Maca and Las Mimosas. And that’s just the tip of it – phew! So, who better to give us an insider’s view of the White Isle?
