Next time you decide to head over to the party island of Ibiza, make sure to book a trip to Lio, a stylish and sexy cabaret restaurant and bar overlooking the port of Ibiza. I went a couple of months ago when I was in Ibiza on a trip with my girlfriends and I can honestly say it was the highlight of my trip – and not just because of the star-studded audience including Anne Hathaway and Valentino!
Lio is great because it combines the ambiance of a 5-star resort with the glamour of the theater and the fun of a nightclub. The atmosphere is magical, with a stunning view of the marina that made me fall in love with the place instantly. The opulent décor is breathtaking, and the attentive staff caters to your every need, making you feel like a real celebrity. The party crowd is also much more civilized and a very different atmosphere from Ushuaia or Pacha. There is almost always some celebrity eye-candy at Lio, and recent guests have also included Paris Hilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Giorgio Armani!
We started with some cocktails once we arrived at our table and took in the wonderful atmosphere and views of the marina. We ordered dinner, and the food didn’t disappoint. Mouth-watering scallops, salmon, and pork are front-runners on their delicious menu. There was a cabaret show while we were having dinner and it reminded me of something Cirque du Soleil would put on. There were contortionists that took pole dancing to a completely new level, actors masquerading as fellow guests, and famous crooners who sang on stage. My favorite part was the choreographed cabaret dance performance – it was so sexy yet classy and professional. During part of the show, the presenters invited Anne Hathaway and Valentino to the stage, which was a complete surprise! It really is a theatrical extravaganza like you’ve never seen before.
At 1am, the cabaret transformed into a bumping nightclub, and that’s when my girlfriend and I knew it was time to take to the floor and dance the night away. The entertainment during dinner really got us going and we danced for over an hour straight! The whole spectacle is thrilling and really leaves you on the edge of your seat. If you’re in Ibiza and up for a night of wild partying and pampering- and don’t mind a bit of a splurge – book a visit to this wonderful place. I guarantee it won’t disappoint!
