Ibiza’s first sake experience bar can be found spicing up the Sunset Terrace in super-club Space as part of Richie Hawtin’s banging club night ENTER.
Follow the signs for the Sake Lounge and don’t worry if it takes a few attempts, BarChick’s been hitting Space for years and could still barely tell you where the entrance is, it’s a maze. Globe lunar lights, paper lanterns, wooden seats and a slick bar covered in apparatus and fruit will alert you to the fact that you’ve arrived.
Richie is passionate about keeping things kosher, it’s the real deal here and he even has three of his own brands of sake. Arrive around 10pm for a tasting and photo op with the man himself, before you get the party started.
The cocktail list is hand written on planks of wood, replicating the backstreet sake lounges of Japan. We drank the tasty, refreshing Microdot (sake, Kamm & Sons, umeshu, aloe vera juice, black sesame and green tea) and felt tipsy almost instantly. Needless to say BarChick’s always been a huge fan, but it’s officially her new party poison of choice.
