D’Angelo Palace, Alicante
A bit further afield from Torrevieja there are huge establishments such as D’Angelo Palace in Alicante and Club Pipo’s in Orihuela where visitors can indulge their every fantasy. Situated on the outskirts of Alicante City, from the outside D’Angelo Palace looks more like a Baronial mansion than a club. Established in the early 1980’s the club has been constantly renovated and upgraded over the years, with no expense spared and the improvements are instantly noticeable. Set in beautiful gardens, the club’s entrance is flanked by two large palm trees leading to an impressive staircase, complete with stone pillars. There is a smart reception area where visitors collect a card that needs to be stamped for every transaction. This makes life a lot easier for all the staff, especially during party or show nights when the club gets busy. Aside from the drink prices, the card has a price list for all the club’s other ‘services’.
Entering D´Angelo Palace
Once through reception there is a large, well stocked bar, seating areas and a number of very good looking women. The splendid decor is in keeping with a palace, boasting ornate wood panelling, antique mirrors, statues and pillars. The main bar is tastefully spotlighted and welcoming, and as you continue further into the club the opulence continues with a comfortable lounge and intimate seating. Probably the most eye catching area in D’Angelo Palace is the inner courtyard. A heated central swimming pool, complete with podiums and poles, is surrounded by the Restarante Marisquería’s seating area that boasts marble flooring and grand arches. The restaurant specialises in seafood, although there is a full a la carte menu as well as the choice of custom menus, ideal for functions and special occasions. To top it off, there is a raised platform graced by a glass grand piano that looks fantastic when the lighting is dimmed and the piano lit up.
Courtyard & Bars
The courtyard is overlooked by a mezzanine level that has another welcoming bar and seating area. The third bar in the club enjoys a more Mediterranean feel and leads to an outdoor terrace boasting tropical plants and palm trees, perfect for relaxing on warm summer evenings. The club offers 2 private VIP lounges complete with stages, subdued lighting, sound systems and comfortable chairs and sofas. A selection of double rooms are available, as well as a choice of grand suites complete with king size beds, jacuzzi, TV, music and room service.
