We recently popped into Eden Square, firstly for dinner at El Chico Mexican Restaurant and following our delicious meal with a couple of perfect Mojitos in Nalu Cocktail Bar in Protaras. I grabbed a moment to chat to owner Constantinos on the night and I arranged a day to do a catch up …
Naturally I had to ask why Mambo’s, I joked, nothing to do with Nando’s?, he smiled and said "maybe" … explaining “if anything, we wanted to bring a new concept to the area, with a hint of a Mediterranean fusion with South America” … But I love the name, the décor very cool, the little touches here and there tells you know they mean business. There’s a lovely long terrace on the sunny mornings side of the road, and indoors spacious for your parties … or those chilli winter nights …
The first video below is their cover of Seven Seas of Rhye, followed by Another One Bites the Dust ... Then The Bohemians did their Rhapsody and to finish off they reminded us, tomorrow, The Show must go On!
... and enjoy some wine tasting and maybe try a few of their speciality drinks including; Wines from selected Cypriot Wineries . Single Malts . Whiskys . Blended Malts . Tennessee Whisky . Rums . Beluga Vodka . Belaire Champagne . Prosecco . Moskato . Borolo and many imported Beers for a list of over 150 from around the world ... oh, and there'll be complementary finger food to accompany your drink.
Pretty much every Friday and definitely every Saturday, and the day before a bank holiday they host live Rock gigs with big name international bands and the very best local Greek and English Rock Bands ... they even squeeze in a little Rhythm and Blues, Indie, Folk, and the occasional Reggae and Disco night too ... I've even caught them doing The Candy up on stage ... adding a bit of live comedy these days ... You'll love it here !
Lithos Rock Band have been part of the rock scene in Protaras for over 12 years, these day's they're booked 7 nights a week at the excellent Q Bar in Protaras! What I really like about them is you don't really know what they are going play each night, coz that depends on the audience ... with some 400 to 500 tracks on their play list, they don't even plan what they're going to play next ... one thing's for sure you'll get a professional show from a group who can play so well together and btw, they can all sing too!
''haha ! not a sock but I once put a cucumber down there ...
Beach Cult Live Music Festival is the only Beach Party on the sand in Ayia Napa this year ... It's 10 Events, one each Saturday through the summer season and this week its US Rapper 'Ace Hood' all the way from Florida to Ayia Napa ... and we're gonna be boogying with our toes in the sand, at the only beach festival in Napa this year BCL ... and I can't wait, it's gonna be sick!
... but then she went on to a summer residency for 3 years at the massive Amnesia in Ibiza ... oh, and not to mention her Residency on BBC Radio 1 in 2015 ... Just finishing her first tour in the states, 'popular' is an understatement, even the issue of Mixmag with Hannah on the cover was the best selling of the year ... love it!!!
Gotta give a big shout out to all the dance schools and companies putting on a spectacular show for us again ... Especially the Performers Academy of Dance and Theatre Arts, from Ayia Napa who all looked awesome and Elena Tofa's Passion Dance School ... how many Avatars did you count ???
