A jewel by the sea
The concept of Savannah Beach Club is simple: a relaxed environment where you can eat, drink and watch the last twinkling rays of the sun descend into the sea, providing a sophisticated respite from the madness often associated with San Antonio’s sunset strip.
Perched at the end of the promenade that famously brought a new level of quality to the area, Savannah was built in 1997 by Javier Anadón - owner of neighbouring Café Mambo, Mint Lounge, Kama Sushi and Villa Mercedes among others.
Recline on the restaurant terrace as you tuck into fresh fish or the legendary Argentine steak with roast vegetables, or step up to the swanky magenta-lit bar for a strawberry daiquiri – the house specialty.
After dinner, it’s all about Savannah’s exclusive clubbing pre-parties. Among the exclusive nights for 2011 are disco-glam Es Paradis favourite Hed Kandi on Saturdays, Amnesia‘s Cream on Thursdays and I Want My MTV on Fridays. Plus there are musical treats like live saxophonists at sundown, for a dash of true lounge spirit.
Then after dark, the action continues in the Savannah Back Room – an intimate club with an exclusive VIP area, great sound system and ambient lighting. A hot location for private parties hosted by the likes of Steve Angello and Roger Sanchez, it seems there’s no reason to ever leave Savannah – well, at least until the sun comes up!
