Music’s on everyone’s mind today with the Eurovision Song Contest tomorrow. But if big ballads and cheesy tunes aren’t your thing, I know somewhere with chilled poolside playlists day and night…
Mojito in hand. Feet dangling in the pool. Cool, summery music, from funky 80s to Techno rhythms. There’s only one place I could be: Cook’s Club. Scattered all across the Med and far beyond to even warmer climes like El Gouna and Gambia, they each have four things in common: a great music scene, incredible cocktails, the best of the world’s street food and stripped-back design.
But today, I’d love to focus on the music. Like any long car journey or night on the town, music makes or breaks an experience, and I don’t see why a week in a hotel would be any different! So let’s take a look at all the tunes you can enjoy at Cook’s Club, from dawn ‘til dusk.
Playing throughout the day and into golden hour are sun soundtracks. There’s a real mix of music, but each track has the same uplifting, summery feel. And if you have a sore head from the night before, don’t worry! There’s nothing too loud or heavy, it’s just the right amount of atmosphere for catching some sun, snoozing in the shade or enjoying a bit of brunch. Take a listen below and get in the Cook’s Club state of mind!
DJ performances and theme nights
At Cook’s Club, there’s often an event on; Latin nights, R&B parties and BBQ cookouts to name just a few. It varies from hotel to hotel, but there’s something unique to be discovered wherever you go. When the DJ performs, he always gets a feel for the crowd, playing music based on the vibe of the evening and who’s chilling at the bar. The music carries on ‘til midnight, but the early hours of the morning are all yours to explore the nearby nightlife and beach bars.
For me, it’s the perfect balance between chilling out and having somewhere with a bit of soul. What makes a perfect holiday for you? Have you got any questions about Cook’s Club? Feel free to ask me in the comments.
