Café del Mar
Café del Mar opened its doors for the first time on June 20th 1980.
Located just a few meters from the Mediterranean sea facing Sa Conillera Island, the concept was simple – to provide music to accompany the spectacular sunsets. In the early days Café del Mar was a prominent meeting point among the locals and an origin of inspiration for artists and authors. By the 1990´s it had become one of the most popular destinations in Ibiza and a venue for events hosted by BBC Radio 1, Channel 4 and MTV. Around the world Café del Mar is possibly most renown for its annual chillout compilations, the first of which was released in 1994 after an overwhelming demand from fans. It was a global success and resulted in a much respected chillout series that has sold millions of copies to date. This global success has turned a modest beach bar in Ibiza into a global brand with franchises all over the world.
