On 25 June, haute cuisine lovers in Madrid were surprised with a unique gastronomic experience, thanks to Asador O’Pazo’s visit to Smoked Room. From Galicia, where it has established itself as a benchmark for Galician cuisine, the team brought an exquisite blend of the sophistication of Galician tradition.

From Galicia to Madrid

At Asador O’Pazo, they control the fire to cook the best products offered by the sea and the land of Galicia, choosing only the highest quality, and always as close and fresh as possible. They are Óscar and Manuel Vidal, two brothers who grew up in a family dedicated to the hotel business within the Scala Hotel Group. They have spent more than a decade perfecting their own project full of personality, the steakhouse ‘O Pazo’ (1 Sol Repsol Guide), located in the heart of Galicia, in Padrón, 25 kilometres from Santiago.

Fusion as art

Asador O’Pazo’s visit to Smoked Room was not only a showcase of our country’s talent, but also a celebration of gastronomic fusion as an art form. In an increasingly globalised world, the ability to combine different cultures in a harmonious way is an invaluable asset.

On the 23rd of June, BiBo Tarifa celebrated its 5th anniversary. The event, which coincided with the magical night of San Juan, was a true spectacle full of music, tradition and good vibes. With the special participation of Morochos and Mëstiza, the celebration turned into an unforgettable night for all the attendees.

A Magical Place: BiBo Tarifa

Since its opening, BiBo Tarifa has been a reference in gastronomy and entertainment in the area. Its summer atmosphere, excellent cuisine and unrivalled location have made it a summer meeting place. Celebrating five years of success was an occasion that deserved to be commemorated in style, and so we did.

Music and atmosphere for all tastes

The evening began with the energy and infectious rhythm of Morochos. This duo, known for their fusion of styles and their ability to connect with the audience, made everyone vibrate with their varied repertoire. Songs combining elements of flamenco, rumba and other genres meant that no one could resist dancing.

A little later, Las Mestiza took the stage, taking the night to another level. Their unique style, blending electronica with flamenco, captured everyone’s attention. Their magnetic stage presence created an electrifying atmosphere.

San Juan in BiBo Tarifa

The coincidence of this celebration with the night of San Juan added a special touch to the event. The night of San Juan, is known for its bonfires and rituals celebrating the arrival of the summer solstice. In BiBo Tarifa, this tradition was experienced with a unique intensity.

The moonlight illuminated the beach, creating a magical and festive atmosphere. Attendees participated in the typical rituals of the night, such as making wishes from 12:00h onwards. The combination of the vibrant music, the festive atmosphere and the traditional rituals made this night really special.

Here’s to another five years!

San Juan is one of the most eagerly awaited festivities of the year. This celebration marks the summer solstice and the arrival of the shortest and most magical night of the year. In Spain, we love to gather on the beach, light bonfires, jump over them and make wishes while the waves caress the shore. This ritual is a symbol of purification and renewal, leaving behind the old and making way for the new.
