Anyone who knows anything about anything knows that when you are invited to Pikes… your only answer can be YES. So when our Bulldog brunch invite turned up in our inbox, we cleared our diaries for a solid 72 hours. We came here for a DL photoshoot and it got little lets say 'extravagant' - so we know the score!
You see when you go to Pikes… you never want to leave.
Pikes is a Hacienda-style mansion in the hills near San Antonio - the walls are bursting with stories of the musical legends that have partied to their limits here. Freddie Mercury held the most extravagant and exuberant birthday party here and it was also the setting for Wham’s ‘Club Tropicana’ music video. Now its labyrinth of fabulous rooms holds some of Ibiza's best parties and DJ’s. Here anything goes.
So we started with the brunch… it’s a new collaboration brunch with Bulldog Gin A girl can’t dine alone so our 2 best girls came along and helped us sample the delights!
The Bulldog gin infused salmon was bloomin’ delightful!
The sausage sandwich… e fantastico!
The full English was enough to feed a small country.
I’ve never eaten a tastier sausage and it was huge!
As part of the brunch, you can indulge in a complimentary gin and tonic with the new Bulldog Gin. It arrives gracefully in a beautiful glass bursting with berries and citrus peel! This drink is so refreshing and I'd recommend that its best enjoyed straight chillin’ on a lilo in the Pikes pool as you digest your breaky. You can’t get any more perfect than this!
The gin is distinctive and bold, just like its host - the iconic Pikes. Many beautiful G&T’s later, we had ended spending the whole day lazing (rather hazily) by the pool. We met some amazing friends (as you always do at Pikes) and waved our favourite new place goodbye… for now.
We want to give a special show of love to Theresa the magnificent host on the day who made it all so special. The 5ft Spanish lady chirping around the mansion made us feel like rock stars as we lounged on our bed by the pool listening to the absolutely perfect playlist of rock and roll tunes. We MUST get hold of that playlist!!
If you’re in Ibiza for closing - get yourself down to Pikes on a Wednesday morning from 11 am and stay (at least) for a long boozy day!
Voy a soñar contigo! I will be dreaming of you!
