Toni y Lola’s – End of an area

November 7th, 2008 - 2:13 pm Posted in Ibiza Bars | Comments (0)

We had our last beer last night at our favourite bar: Toni y Lola’s. The bar is below our flat, next to the kebab shop and earlier this year when we upgraded our adsl to 10mb we decided to put a transmitter on the balcony so that the bar and kebab shop could share our wifi for free.

Over time the bar became a little net cafe, it also had a great and diverse community, the morning workers with their coffees, the lunchtime crowd for menu del dia’s… spanish, dutch, french, german, english would all mix. As thanks for the wifi Tony and Lola would often give us free bottles wine to take home. Of course it also meant we could work downstairs in the bar….

Toni first started in the kiosko on the ramblas many years ago. When the council decided to close it they had to give him another bar – that ended up being the one downstairs. However Toni and Lola decided recently that they needed a break and so decided to sell the bar and retire. Within a week the bar had been snapped up and hence a sad farewell last night.

We met the new owners and hopefully everything will continue as before but you can’t replace two genuinely nice people.
