There is a reason the world’s richest celebrities party in Ibiza. It’s not just the lush beaches that Leonardo and the Bieb love, but also the amazing dining experiences, the most indulgent of which is offered by Sublimotion. Described by head chef Paco Rancero as a “radically different show that you can only live by yourself,” the restaurant is located in the Hard Rock Hotel in Playa de Bossa and allows for only 12 guests at a time. The exclusive venue offers a 20-course “gastro-sensory” meal that is intended to “elicit an emotional experience” and allow you to experience humor, pleasure, fear, reflection, and nostalgia in one bite. It’s probably how you’ll feel when you get the $2,000 bill, too.
