Today is the Fiesta de San Bartolomé in San Antonio, a public holidayAttributed to San Bartolomé it is also in honour of Sant Agnes. Dating back to the tenth century when The Moors conquered Ibiza, the arabs allowed the christians to practice their religion in in a place called Cova Santa a small place which is now better known for the after party scene. As the legend has it a ship guided it's way to the port of San Antonio through a rought sea storm. One of the passengers carried a talisman of Santa Agnes and vowed that if he survived the storm he would leave the figure at the place he was rescued. He then later passed the talisman to the priest of San Antonio and a chapel was made inside the holy cave to venerate Santa Agnes. As part of the celebrations today, the local people walk to the holy cave where solemn mass is held in honour of Santa Agnes. The celebratory mass and procession starts at 8pm near the fountains with Ibizenco folk dancing and live music. This all ends in a mass of fireworks being set off at 12pm.

Twenty years.That is how long Ibiza has been associated withCafé Mambo. It is one of the original spots on the island that are most often mentioned when island visitors talk about Ibiza... the majority of whom saw the sun set off the coast of Cafe Mambo, gave it a round of applause and set back to enjoy the selected sunset track by the Mambo resident on duty that evening. It really is one of the defining moments of any trip... an 'Ibiza Moment' we call it. For those who have been on the island for as long as they can remember, this venue and that moment still remain special to this day.
To celebrate their 20th Anniversary, Café Mambo will host a flagship global tour, several special events and even release a special album. The world tour will take in cities such as Dubai, London, Moscow, Liverpool, Newcastle, Bali, Bahrain, Chamonix, Lugano, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, and Miami.
For now, the venue will open onFriday 16th Maywith what they call 'the first of many Birthday celebrations over the season'. Entry to the party is of course free, as are all the pre-parties and events at Café Mambo. The party typically starts early afternoon and continues late into the night, taking in the famous sunset, of course. DJ's on the day are expected to be residents and friends.
