Embracing Cebu’s charm and valiant fun seeking attitude, Azure is the intrepid venue that is the new “place to be in”.
“The development and completion of Azure is a new milestone for us. As we continue to set a new benchmark in dining and events, this place will provide Cebu a new gem in the food and beverage and entertainment. This will add a new and exciting variety to the region’s attraction and positively impact the city’s image” says Area general Manager James Montenegro.
Azure Beach Club takes guests to a new height with the right mix of elegant ambience, contemporary fun and chic atmosphere right by the beach. The venue offers more than just breathtaking views but an experience on its own with the architecture carefully developed to embrace the natural beauty and charm of the beachfront location with its open concept design. The place features an Asian Grill restaurant with day and night menus, beach lounge area for the sun worshippers and a rock bar by the cliff for a perfect sundown cocktail and night cap.
Food and beverage is one of the main highlights of Azure. With Chef Godfrey Laforteza at the helm of food concept and development we are sure to hit the mark in fresh, flavorful and delightful food.
Served during the occasion was a trio of appetizers which included citron cured salmon capaccio, tuna tataki and grilled chicken with crispy wanton salad. For main it was a feast of grilled specialties from king prawns, red fish fillet, lamb, angus beef and lobster served with 8 sauces. For the sweet ending, everyone was served with Szechuan pepper cream brule with compressed purple yam and banana black sesame ice cream.
The Rock Bar offers an experience on its own. Perched at the tip of the beachside cliff, it offers nothing but unhindered view of the sky above, the ocean bellow and a good selection of booze to keep you company.
The drinks and cocktails were also developed with a new concept, providing an interactive approach. Classic drinks are given modern interpretations and distinct presentations like the foamy colada with candied coconut on the side which you can bite on its own or incorporate in your drink.
Azure Beach Club features nightly DJ for lounge and house music and holds regular events with International DJs. For its grand opening party Fierce Angel and Mark Doyle shared their brand of music for an unforgettable event. Mark created Hed Kandi and Fierce Angel and is a popular figure in the house music in the UK.
The beach club is open daily from 10am to 2am on Friday and Saturday and 10am to 12midnight for the rest of the week.
