Santorini Grace, Greece

(8 years ago)
Located at  Imerovigli on the northwest coast of the Cyclades island of Santorini, Greece, Grace Santorini  is earning a reputation among Santorini's luxury boutique hotels as THE place to dine.The surroundings are, of course, divine with the azure ocean, the white-washed buildings, the dark and barren cliffside creating a Greek paradise.  Views over the Caldera Basin and Skaros Rock surround the hotel.The year-old alfresco show kitchen is presided over by chef Sprios Agious who's gained new influences during his work over the winter with Michel Roux Junior of Le Gavroche, London, and Jonathan Cartwright of the White Barn Inn, in Maine, USA.The kitchen serves  fresh and innovative Mediterranean cuisine that everyone is talking about including grilled calamari on summer-green ragout and grilled Aegean Sea octopus and balsamic glazed monkfish. Guests can dine alfresco on the moonlit terraces, by the infinity pool or in the dining room or lounge inside.Grace Santorini is part of the Grace Hotels Group. We only feature hotels we have personally experienced - and we have not stayed at Grace Santorini -  so we are not sure what the rest of the hotel is like. The reputation of the food has come to our attention from several sources.We have experienced Ikeas on Santorini and highly recommend it. - Bill Tikos

Club MUSEE - Madrid

(8 years ago)
Club MUSÉE is Madrid’s fresh take on what night clubs could be — a combination art gallery and night club, but both with a sharp, trendy edge. Designed by creative director and designer Parolio of Madrid’s Parolio & Euphoria Lab the space provides a strong back-drop for powerful art. At Club MUSÉE black glass and mirrors, bright-colored sculptural furniture and a three-meter-wide  LED video screen create a visual challenge for the artists’ work that ranges from paintings to video art and other  installations. The work of upcoming photography and illustration talent is currently on display from photographer Robert Bartholot from Berlin,  Paco Peregrín from Madrid  and illustrator Glenn Hilario from New York. The visual feast is supported by music mixed by Madrid’s hottest DJs who offer electronic, pop and house music.Parolio’s strong sense of drama, theater and color work well at Club MUSÉE, and is evident in many of his other projects, including Pacha Madrid night club and Le Marquis restaurant and lounge.  - Bill Tikos
