Famed for its nightlife, it’s beautiful weather and for being immortalised in song by the Vengaboys, Ibiza is a name synonymous with summer – a name that brings about the kind of holidaying daydreams that only the Mediterranean Island can.
Now, we can’t send you to Ibiza, but we can tell you about the next best thing – the Nile Ritz-Carlton’s new weekly Ibiza Night.
Set to kick off this Tuesday (July 17th) and continue on every week till the end of the summer, the Nile Ritz-Carlton is channelling the more sophisticated side of the island – there is one, we promise. You see it’s not all dance music and messy, late-night shenanigans; Ibiza Night invites one and all for a night of cocktails, music, food and the kind of evening socialising befitting of the luxury hotel, all by the pool.
The concept is all well and good, but let’s gets down to the nitty-gritty of it. The bar will be putting together some fancy flavoured margaritas (thing everything from peach and strawberry, to raspberry and watermelon), as well as specialty Martinis, including everything from the classic Martini and Cosmo, to more out-there varieties like Strawberry and Lemongrass, as well as Jasmine Green Tea – yes folks, that’s Jasmine Green Tea Martinis.
A variety of wines and speciality shots will also be available, while the food options are just as colourful. Taking a simple, Tapas-style approach, Ibiza Night’s food picks come to you via the US, Mexico and the Caribbean, with a special gourmet hotdog menu being a particular highlight. Grilled hamburgers, quesadillas and jerk chicken are some of the other highlights, alongside some Arabic specialities, too.
No night is complete without music and this all comes to the backdrop of Latin American-influenced DJ sets, as well as Salsa and Flamingo performances.
And so there you have it – a perfect union of food, drink and music. Tuesdays just got a lot more interesting…
