From The Beginning…

Café Mambo was created during the 90’s house music heyday and received instant recognition, it was named ‘Bar of the Year’ by GQ and its following grew rapidly. DJs began to frequent the bar requesting to play on the decks and before long regular sets included the biggest names in dance music playing at the now celebrated sunset ‘pre-party’. With 25 years under their belt, Café Mambo is sure to once again welcome a fine array of stellar acts back to the famous booth. In 2018 we witnessed performances from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Eric Prydz, Roger Sanchez, Bob Sinclar, The Mambo Brothers, and weekly pre-parties for DEFECTED Records.

To IMS Legend

This year IMS has honoured owner and founder Javier Anadon with the IMS Legend Award, recognising and paying tribute to the artists and industry trailblazers that have helped write dance music history and define its culture.

IMS Co-Founder Danny Whittle says “It’s an absolute pleasure for IMS to present Javier with the IMS Legends Award as Javier is without doubt one of the true legends and his unfaltering support for electronic music has been a pleasure to be part of. From my early days of decorating Café Mambo for Renaissance pre-parties, Javier always supported and helped up to hosting all seven Pacha pre-parties there through the 2000s, huge BBC Radio 1 events and so much more. This is one IMS Legends Award dinner no one should miss, it’s going to be one hell of a night with a huge group of people that have nothing but love for Javier, Caroline, Christian, Alan and the whole Mambo family.”

Congratulations Javier!
