Partying at the Blue Cargo

Partying at the Blue Cargo

Legendary hot spot on the beach of Ilbarritz with restaurant, beach, tapas bar, and dancefloor.

The trendiest place on the Basque coast attracts revellers from Bayonne to Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Its success is based on its unique beachfront restaurant concept that also offers an oceanfront dancefloor. Perfect for a couple or the whole family for lunch, and at night with friends to party.

On the menu, find local fare such as squid with Espelette pepper, '30-month' Bellota ham and tomato bread with garlic - a reminder that Spain is not far away -, whole louvine (seabass) for two, with olive oil or tomato sauce, or Ossau-Iraty cheese with black cherry jam from Itxassou.

Countless tapas are on hand during the cocktail hour, along with sushi and seafood. In the evening, after a dinner on the villa terrace facing the ocean, it is time to go down the small steps for a few moves and get up on the tables.

Open from April to October.
