Pikes On Sundays is back!
Incredible scenes in Manchester this Sunday gone. Sights and sounds you people couldn’t possibly imagine! Jesting aside however it really was off-the-hook good to be in England during the summertime with the sun on our faces for the first time since last time listening to a collection of my favourite DJs laying down some serious music for a full daytime/nighttime session. A collection of friends and family as big as we’ve seen since the halcyon days of the Space Openings (ours) years back. Thanks and BIG LOVE to one and all for keeping the faith and supporting our ventures in far off lands (Manchester) these past two years, they truly are rather special times. Now what the fuck was the name of that 80’s track Ruf Dug played at the end of his set?!? Jesus!
So on arriving home feeling elated and yet slightly jaded and degraded it was truly wonderful to hear that we have had a reprieve on our current Sunday daytime ban at Pikes. And so, it gives us great pleasure to be able to announce the return of Pikes On Sundays, the most loved Sunday session on this fair isle!
Pikes On Sundays, and a return for The Brothers Grim to their spiritual home and the new booth that was custom made for them during the winter months. We’ve waited with baited breath to get back poolside and been digging deep in our collections for this extended opening set and so onwards and upwards, here it is. Summertime. The peoples favourite. Pikes On Sundays 14:00 – 00:00 Poolside at Pikes Hotel.
Finishing up midnight poolside we then open the doors to the infamous Freddies once again and extend into the night with Tales Of The Unexpected. Unexpected because we don’t really know who’s going to turn up, because we don’t know who’s going to play and because we don’t know how long we’ll get away with offering up some of the hottest acts on the island for fuck all to the lucky golden ticket holders. Tickets will be available during the daytime Sunday session and anywhere else you see The Brothers this week.
The famous Pikes roast is back in action and firing on all cylinders. We’ve already got a lot of reservations made so to book your table give Pikes a call on 0034 971 34 22 22.
But before Sunday, there’s Friday… First stop this week will be for our bi-weekly Summer residency at the delightful Hostel La Torre where we’ll be soundtracking the suns gentle decent into the shimmering blue Mediterranean from 19:00. We stand strong together as witness to this daily celestial event and play on in to the early dusk and beyond so if your around do stay and keep us company. Come say hello, were nice guys…well, one of us is anyway.
And then after Sunday come Tuesdays! They come around quickly on Ibiza and they generally come equipped with a fluffy or slightly damaged brain so it gives us great pleasure to announce something new starting this week at Pikes and continuing through the summer each and every Tuesday. Grim & Wilson Present a Balearic Brunch. Ambient and soulful sounds to help bring you round, carefully curated by Brother Grim and Andy Wilson.
Starting at 11:00 Tuesday morning until the the complimentary Bulldog Gin cocktails run out around 16:00. The specially created Tuesday only breakfast/brunch menu compliments the gin perfectly and can only be described as the essential cure for Monday night excesses. So if you’ve been disco dancing to The Black Madonna, Honey Dijon or Harvey at Pikes the night before or raving your tits off DC10 stylie then we think poolside at Pikes is the perfect place to rest your weary heads.
So there you have it! The return of Pikes On Sundays, a sunset set at Hostal La Torre, a brand new Tuesday residency and Tales Of The Unexpected rounding out your weekend! What a time to be alive!
