(CAN FIX/IBIZA/22 JULY 2014)

Knee-deep in the throes of summer and it’s all go at the Boutique Hostal Salinas with their weekly events growing in size by the week and a number of new and exciting additions to the calendar confirmed for July and August.

First up, and it is indeed a first for the BHS, as one of the island’s most reputable events, Urban in Ibiza, confirms its appearance at the Salinas hotspot on the 2nd August. Now in its sixth year on the island, the art/fashion/music extravaganza has been credited with bringing a steady selection of the world’s best street artists to Ibiza and as far as the event at the Boutique Hostal Salinas is concerned, names currently being bandied about include Inkie, Elmo Hood and Dan Kitchener with more to be confirmed in the run up to the street art spectacle at Salinas. With a following that includes both junior and senior aficionados of graffiti and all that that entails, the Urban in Ibiza warm-up event at the BHS is a chance to see first-hand how its done with live painting from the artists included in the programme. An absolute must for your Ibiza calendar.

As far as the BHS’ baby, Lo Cura Lounge, is concerned, things in that department have been going from great to greater with Fridays and Sundays both dedicated to the spin-off project and both gatherings encompassing that ‘real Ibiza feeling’ that many strive to create but few manage to pull off. Andrew Livesey, Chief Fixer at We Love…Space (the venue for the Sunday get togethers), summed it up rather succinctly, saying: “The Lo Cura crew have managed to do, in various venues on the island, what many before them have tried and failed to do: – they create an atmosphere, vibe and party that is greater than the sum of all its parts. Their bar in Ibiza town was my favourite in the world and the Boutique Hostal Salinas is my current favourite place to hang out on the island, not to mention that the Lo Cura Lounge takeovers of El Salon at We Love …Space are the best parties that that room has ever seen”. The next date set for that El Salon takeover is 17 Aug when the Lo Cura crew join forces with Italian sensations, Souldrops, stepping up to the platos.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, or rather the BHS terrace, the Once Upon a Time market has been inundated with new local and international designers and artisans setting up stall every Sunday from 6-11pm, amongst them Holga Garrosa, Evita Puch, Jahaira Cobeña and Die As Trash. With DJ Daisy Heartbreaker providing the music to shop by and many visitors availing of lunch in the restaurant at the same time, Sundays are really rather special at the Boutique Hostal Salinas.

Speaking of lunch and back in the kitchen, and the new concept restaurant, La Marisquería at Boutique Hostal Salinas, continues to climb the scale of culinary greatness with its predominantly seafood menu proving a success amongst resident guests and locals alike. But it’s not just the shellfish that is proving popular with chef Anxelinho Ares’ meat dishes also going down a treat and in particular, huge numbers of the House Burger have been breaking all records as word on that spreads across the island. As an added incentive, the restaurant also hosts Special Saturdays with Lobster & Chips at 35€pp and Tuesday Treats with La Mariscada fish plate at 45€pp.

Back in the boogie bit of the Boutique, and a special nod this week to Bruno from Ibiza and Angel Cielo’s party, Sunshine People, which this week brings in some very special guests from Brazil in the shape of acclaimed DJ duo MartJaz, flown in fresh from the football fever and ready to have a ball of a different kind this Thursday 24th July from 7pm at the BHS. Sunshine People shows no sign of stopping till the end of the season, with special guests announced weekly.

And finally, for this time round, and it’s been a while since we last mentioned it but it’s with great pleasure that we can finally confirm the release date of the BHS’ very first compilation CD, aptly titled the ‘Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza Summer Sessions’ out on the Seamless Recordings label and due to hit the streets on 4th August. The three discs of awesomeness, lovingly put together by BHS co-owner and Ibiza resident DJ, David Phillips with a helping hand from PBR Streetgang (aka the very versatile DJ duo Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe- fans, friends and fixtures of the Boutique Hostal Salinas) is a clever combo of down tempo, nu disco and deep house and features tracks from the likes of Goldfrapp, DFA, Pyschemagik, Nancy Wang, Bonar Bradberry, PBR Streetgang, Art of Tones, John Talabot, Prins Thomas and Ewan Pearson.

Aforementioned David Phillips, was last reported to be beside himself with joy at the long awaited arrival of the CD saying, “For years and years I’ve seen compilation after compilation come out and wondered why the hell we never brought out our own. Here’s what we hope to be the first of many!”

The CD will also be available to download online but meanwhile, for your media lugholes only, here’s a taster of what’s in store:

All in all then, as the trusty threesome* behind the BHS prepare to break the back of summer, seems like they’re doing a damned fine job thus far of creating one more memorable medley of a season at the Boutique Hostal Salinas.
