Warung Beach Club 4000

WORLD-CLASS CLUBBING Parador beach club, brazil Annexed to the Parador Estaleiro Hotel, Parador Beach Club was born in November 2008 to bring the greatest names in electronic music to the South Brazilian region of Santa Catarina’s ever demanding public. Hosting mainstream and underground names such as 16 Bit Lolitas, Paolo Mojo, Layo & Bushwacka, Dave Seaman, Pete Tong, Tocadisco, Miguel Migs, Darren Emerson and Gui Boratto across their nights Reveillon Space Ibiza, Parador Fantasy, Parador Hawai and the Parador White Party; the club and hotel are also the official partners of Space Balneário Camboriú, the Ibiza brand’s new South Brazilian club venture. Nevertheless, Parador is most famous for introducing beach parties to a region revered for its beautiful people, a place where huge DJs provide the soundtrack into the sunset by the club’s pool. The main club area also boasts a two-tier covered space for 1500 people

overlooking the stage, with cabins, tables and sofas around the back. You’ll also find a sushi bar on the first floor and a restaurant on the second. Plus, being linked with a hotel resort, their leisure areas, tennis courts, gym, SPA, cinema and wine cellar are only moments away. With over eleven years experience, the club’s resident DJ and producer, Maycon Schramm, is also always on hand to make the most of Parador’s Brazilian FZ Audio soundsystem, complimented by their powerful LED lighting rigs. Parador representative, Guilherme Ricardo Moro, also recalls fond memories of having to “prise Layo & Bushwacka away from the sunny beach after arriving from sub-zero temperatures to play their set” and describes the Carnival day parties as “unforgettable”. So if it’s a raving treasure chest of fun in the sun and beach-side party fireworks you’re after, Parador certainly marks the spot. Phil Dudman
