This Thursday, August 1st, a special launch party event will be taking place at the newly opened Markus Chef’s Kitchen in San Lorenzo. Inviting guests to an evening of wining, dining and dancing, the occasion will be commemorating the opening of their new on site bar and music room. From 8pm till late, the doors to this sprawling, magical garden restaurant venue will be laid open showcasing all of its bells and whistles – a restaurant that promises you’ll never have to leave once plates are done when their bar and music room opens..
Hosted by Nitro Entertainment, the evening will begin with a complementary welcome drink with the option of dinner, cherry picking the best of the kitchen’s menu. Set within an oasis garden, wooden tables take space underneath lanterns, enveloped by lush fauna and flora. Within this tropical world, the Mediterranean dishes come alive, boasting a soulful food journey focused on the best ingredients sourced on the island. Head honcho and chef Mark Gelman is the visionary behind the establishment whose philosophy is rooted in highlighting fresh produce straight from the producers, just like he would at home. Whipping up everything from scratch in the open-air kitchen, there’s nowhere better to taste the fruits of Ibiza’s rich red soil and mouth-watering seafood and meats. Vegetarians and vegans are also well catered for with specials, an inclusive experience one that’s of utmost importance to Gelman.
With Gelman’s fine-dining concept already a success in destinations spanning London, Monaco, Saint Tropez and his hometown, Moscow, the Ibiza opening is the most exciting yet. As an island of gastronomy, Markus Chef’s Kitchen has found its spiritual home. And, spiritual it is. With an attention to detail that goes behind every morsel, to the lounge and entertainment spaces designed for lapping up the moment, this Thursday’s event is a chance to be in a place that feels far from reality. From 9pm the music bar room will open, and the music will feed through to the garden, providing an ambient soundtrack for sampling every forkful. Ibiza resident DJ and winner of the best Ibiza DJ at the DJ Awards Andy Baxter will be headlining from 23.30 till late alongside Café Mambo’s, James Reid.
The purpose-built entertainment spaces are the star of the evening, inaugurating the restaurant as a fully-fledged immersive hotspot. With Balinese-furnishings and a Moroccan inspired open air lounge adjacent to the new music bar space, guests can post dinner while away the hours with delicious cocktails straight from the new indoor bar or head inside into the newly refurbished interior bar and get into the party spirit on the dance floor..Coming just for drinks and dancing is also encouraged at Markus. For those more curious about seeing how it all gets made, the open air kitchen and bars provide a conversation-starting spectacle; watching staff whip up concoctions in real time. With the music bar open till 2.30am this really is a great addition to the diner and dancing venues options in Ibiza.. This stylish late night music bar launch party, set within a sensational dining venue, with a summer program of house and disco music events in place is one not to be missed.
