Ibiza Beach Club Inc. A member of the Manny O. Group
It was a late December evening in 2011 when the idea for Ibiza Beach Club came to life in the minds of Manny O. and Francisco Beltran, a show and record producer, originally from Mallorca, Spain. Francisco Beltran came to the Philippines with hardly an expectation until Manny O.’s vision spoke to him, he immediately embraced it and was on board 100%. It was such an electrifying night of inspiration, powerful ideas loaded with intent and purpose to revitalise Cebu’s travel and tourism scene, that only a year later, the very first and the original Ibiza Beach Club in Mactan, Cebu came to be.
The core idea for Ibiza Beach Club was to emulate the vibe of Eivissa – that you could have the best of both worlds in dining and entertainment. And why not? We already have some of the most stunning beaches and sunsets in the world, all one had to do was perfect the formula with good food and world-class entertainment. Where one could be barefoot yet elegant, loose yet refined. The Balearic-inspired 15-course Signature Grill is at the heart of Ibiza Beach Club. Premium meats and fresh seafood with a most impressive selection of fine wines, tapas to eat the night away and housing the most advanced sound and lighting system in the country, D & B Audiotechnik and Martin Audio to better highlight the 20-member Ibiza Beach Club Show Team. In-house as well as guest DJs spin the decks on some nights, and featured bands on other nights.
The vision that is Ibiza Beach Club was completely embodied and distilled by the country’s premier designers – Manny Samson, Ivy and Cynthia Almario, Fred Valdes and Butch Valdes – inimitable creative minds who forged the brand’s unmistakable visual DNA from the vision of Manny O.; extremely photogenic, a social media darling in pictures.
