interesting that the same guy created
-es paradis
-cafe del mar
-summum .
crazy - they even wanted him for some remodelling of nyc´s studio54 !!!

ps:
translation-programme did this below,
es paradis terrenal = is paradis earthly
cafe del mar = coffee of the sea :))


"...

Güell maintained a long and fruitful relation with Eivissa,
where arrived in 1975 to be take charge of the construction of the record store
Is Paradís of Sant Antoni, the same locality in which five years later created the one
that probably is its more universal work, the Coffee of the Sea.

It emphasized as the designer of spaces, decorated several record stores in Catalonia before arriving at Eivissa, where besides them cited, designed the interiors of the clubs Summun and Project, of the restaurant s´Illa or of the store of Elena Almanzor of Despicable, among others.
Has also an important work as the sketcher, painter and sculptor
and was responsible for the ceremony of closure of the first edition of the fair ARCH,
in 1984, with the happenings `Adoració of the victòria of the burrocràcia´ and
`23-F lúdic to the Congrés dels Diputats´.
In the island lived during various years in a little house next to the sea in is Penetrated give Moorish.
The hand of the businessman arrived from Pepe Aguirre,
with the one that had worked in several Catalonian record stores,
to create Is Paradís Earthly,
a work that carried him two years.
Aguirre, that knew him since the 68, recalled him yesterday as

"the best artist of the world,
a man of a difficult character,
but a great person and a great artist".

The developer, that also the club entrusted him Summun,
was very affected by the news of its death:
"We have passed average together life".
In turn, Ramón Guiral, owner of the Coffee of the Sea, defined him also as
"a difficult person. A genius, like other geniuses with a point of defiance.
Very tenacious in the defense of its ideas".

Guiral recalled "the complications that had until finished the Coffee of the Sea,
because did not want that changed neither a comma of its project.
It wanted to do a source of colors inside the sea, but Coasts did not leave us.
In the end told me that was the first time that a work had managed
to finish at 75 percent.
Today I repent of those discussions and I am proud of what we did.
Good part of the success of Coffee of the Sea itself the due to him.
It is a work that has transferred borders and is known everywhere".
...
Before arriving at Eivissa was responsible for the scenography
and the wardrobe of the spectacle `Xauxa´, of The Threesome, in 1972.
In 1987 it went to Germany to create the record store you Give Monument and
they entrusted him the reform of the mythical one Studio 54 of new York,
but an illness maintained him various months in a German hospital.

For me, it's a restaurant - what a surprise!
Many years ago, before the marina in Santa Eulalia was fully developed, there was a small restaurant called Puerto Chico run, I think, by two brothers from the mainland.
The service was superb, the tablecloths were immaculate, the utensils shining and the glasses positively sparkled and the food for lunch and dinner was excellent.
Unfortunately I believe they were two years too soon in that they were "just around the corner" from the mainly let area.
When they left, it was converted into a poxy pizza parlour - how very sad.

there once (= 10 years or more ago) was a place close to pacha,
but opposite site of the road ...
(maybe where the new "gran hotel" is now,
can´t remember exactly where it was,
could be that there was a little river next to it ?)
... where they built a tent every year and something like an ibizencan fiesta
was going on for a few days.
many people were wearing clothes which looked like traditional costumes ?!

where was this place exactly and what fiesta was going on there ?
is this fiesta still alive and where does it take place nowadays ?

please name your favorite places (clubs/restaurants/bars/whatever ...)
or people that were a part of ibiza at one time
but are no longer here.

what are your favorite places or establishments that have gone for good ?
One of the best people I've met on the island is a guy called Pako... I met him for the first time back 94' he worked at the Costa Mar at the time behind the bar - he really made our holiday and even sorted us out for guest lists at various clubs. We went back to the Costa Mar a few times and he even sorted us out staying in the hotel's villa by the pool at Costa Mar. He moved to his own bar the name escapes me a few years ago and last year when I went to find him he's now working in a mexican restaurant near to the west end (I can't remember the name at the mo!). If you've met\know Pako you'll know what a top top bloke he is! I try and make a point of joining him for a beer every year I go!

Favourite places.... the old terrace and the old amnesia!
..........beach..... benirras......restaurant... sa punta.... oh and used to love the star bar if I was still standing at that time of morning.... and when Bar M was first there with the DJ box in the tree!

Kiwi bar (now called the orange corner)

Grego, you say Bar M? is that under a new name now? the only thing ive noticed is the addition of the stage and glass frontage when it gets cold over the last 10 years, although i dont think it always had upstairs seating??

Bar M use to look really beautiful and rustic, with tree houses, it had a creative feel to it.
As soon as they started making loads of money they thought it would be a good idea to tart it up :cry: Some people might prefer it that way but I think it lost it's edge. You don't need money to make things beautiful!

yes, the DJ box was in a tree, you had to climb the tree to get to it (the got a ladder for the more famous DJs.

originally too, the bar was almost just like a hole-in-the-wall type thing that served food and drinks almost straight onto the beach.

the steps that go up to the upstairs currently have been there for years, with the DJ box halfway up replacing the tree DJ box. upstairs was quite small and was used sparingly, VIP, special events, those in the know, the office was there and of course the jacuzzi too!!

happy days.:D

... Ku=Privilege

(privilegeibiza)


anybody remembers or has pictures of a KU-beachbar @ pdb ??

"...
The Ku club was "The mirror of Ibiza",
according the British TV documentary A Short Film About Chilling .
And for many a decade, it has been just that.
An open-air swimming pool wich became the biggest nightclub in the world,
its history is the stuff of legends.

During the '80s, Ku was Europe's greatest disco.
Outrageous and hedonistic, it was Ibiza's open-air version of New York's Studio 54.

It started life in the early '70s as a community swimming pool
with a small bar that served mainly the San Rafael locals.
It was called Club Rafael.

In 1978 it was sold to three Basques ...
They changed its name from Club Rafael to Ku
after the nightclub they already ran in the Spanish town of San Sebastian.
For the next 12 years it grew and grew.
The swimming pool was made smaller to accommodate more people
and a bridge was build across it.
It was said the sound system could be heard all over the island
and the lasers seen on the mainland.

There was even a Ku beach bar on Playa D'en Bossa.


The chossen few were issued with special keys - away from the main entrance
was an inconspicuous door that allowed free access into the club.
Under a creative direction, Ku became famous for throwing the most extravagant parties.
They flew musicians and dancers in from Rio

Its high point was Barcelona '92, held (confusingly) in 1987
to celebrate the forthcoming Olympics.
Freddie Mercury sang 'Barcelona' with Montserrat Caballe for a TV show
that was broadcast round the world.

But by now the residents of San Rafael were fed up with getting no sleep
and began lobbying for a change in law.
In 1990, a roof was added.

In 1991 the roof collapsed during a storm,
forcing the club's closure for the whole summer.
It was reborn with a new investment as Privilege ...
