Coco Beach Ibiza has established a reputation on the island not only for its outstanding food, but also its spectacular entertainment. Island residents and visitors alike frequently name the chic beach club amidst their favourite places to go, because ‘where else would you be served champagne from the sky by beautiful girls’? And on August 27th the venue combined all these elements and more to treat their guests to a memorable evening at their glamorous White Night.

Frequented by a stylish crowd any day of the week, guests had made a special effort for the themed event and interpreted the dress code in show-stopping designer outfits. Sheer lace dresses were teamed with vertiginous silver high heels, while romantic boho gowns flowed in the gentle sea breeze. With the restaurant and bar area decorated with white balloons and lush bunches of fresh white lilies, Coco Beach Ibiza made for an arresting sight that had many passers-by stop for a sneaky peek inside.

Performance artist Baybjane, dubbed ‘the world’s smallest drag queen’ at only 148 centimetres tall, was dressed in a fantastical costume that reminded us of a hybrid between Marie Antoinette and the Queen of Hearts from Alice In Wonderland, charming the audience with a charismatic personality and comedic talent.

Once guests had settled at their tables – where a special four-course meal awaited them – singer and hostess of the night Asia De Saleh welcomed her audience with a goosebump-inducing rendition of John Legend’s All Of Me. Her powerful vocals were supported by a live saxophone player, making it a very special performance indeed. Diners enjoyed a double consommé of juicy tomatoes followed by a selection of starters that included mini meatballs, fresh bread and delicious dips before the main course, a delicious veal fillet with fresh mushrooms and parpadelle pasta. The divine menu was rounded off with a surprise dessert created especially for White Night.

While people were enjoying their food, the entertainment didn’t end, of course. Pulling out all the stops, a Coco Beach logo was suspended from the sky with aerial acrobats dangling from the letters on silk ropes, wowing the audience with their contortions. With the white silk flowing in the wind, it was an incredible sight to behold. As guests were tucking into their meals, they were surprised by a beautiful girl floating down from the ceiling on a heart swing, topping up their glasses while posing prettily above their dinner table in a tiny embellished costume and fierce black high heels.

Singer Asia returned for a second set, flying in from the sky on a glittering moon and treating guests to a mix of international chart hits like Rihanna’s Diamonds and folk-inspired German songs. The famous Coco Beach Ibiza hymn, a self-penned ditty that describes how wonderful life is when you spend a day at the beach club, could not be missing, of course, and we heard several people sing along as encouraged by their host. A jaw-dropping stunt performance by a daredevil motorbike rider, who rode his vehicle in a tight wheel – again suspended from the sky by a crane – made us feel like children watching a circus performance in wonder, before a beautiful fire show brought the evening to a conclusion. Watching the dancer twirl her burning batons to illuminate the dark beach, we couldn’t agree more that there truly is no place else like Coco Beach Ibiza!
