Manny O never does anything half-baked.

Back in 2013, the entrepreneur, wine enthusiast, and tourism champ renovated the Movenpick Hotel in Cebu and installed Ibiza Beach Club on the shores of Mactan. People flocked to the island gem every night for its pulsating circle of light and sound and a taste of its famous churrasco buffet.

Now, four years later, Manny O brings the same brand of lifestyle dining and entertainment to Manila but on an even larger scale, with the opening of Ibiza Beach Club in Bonifacio Global City.


The sunken seating area, which is is surrounded by water and illuminated by colored lights, mimics the sunken seating area in Movenpick Cebu’s pool.



Stretched across 4,000 square meters of lushly designed space, the P300-million property on the 6th floor of the W City Center seats 1,000 and promises to serve the same 15-course Balearic-inspired dinner that made it famous in its hometown.

The crowd favorites are all there: filet mignon, Angus rib eye steak, baby back ribs, New Zealand lamb, crispy pork belly, rock lobsters, tiger prawns, cuttlefish, and even ostrich meat.

Unlimited servings of salad and appetizers are served buffet-style but the true stars are the freshly cooked varieties of seafood and meat, served one after the other at your table, with each juicy slab sliced directly from the skewer to your plate.

Should you choose to take a break from the meat parade and go straight to dessert, the Queen Piña (a sweet, smoky slice of grilled pineapple) or the signature Movenpick ice cream (flown in straight from Switzerland) are the perfect palate cleansers.

Dinner can be enjoyed while sipping an Ibiza sour or a glass of any of Manny O’s signature wines and experiencing the nightly performances of the club’s in-house entertainment group.

The Ibiza Show Club Team is a group of budding Filipino artists who sing and dance to movie themes and pop songs. They also hold Broadway-inspired performances.

The design elements of the stage and main area closely follow those of Ibiza Beach Club in Cebu, originally done by Manny Samson, Ivy and Cynthia Almario, Fred Valdes and Butch Valdes.


Often, a night out in the city means having to choose between a quiet dinner or a round of drinks at a noisy, crowded bar. Ibiza Beach Club BGC delivers the happy medium of relaxed but sophisticated dining, in a laid-back but still energetic atmosphere.
