Güey - The relaunch

Last Friday 3rd December I attended the relaunch party at Güey, not too far from the Casino in Puerto Banus. Starting with complimentary cocktails, and a selection of tempting canapés showcasing the talents of the new kitchen wizards, the party kicked off at 8.30pm.

Guests were lead via the chic, new entrance into a winter-wonderful through the venue’s illuminated gardens and terraces, and into the lounge, chill-out area and restaurant where they marvelled at the chic pre-Christmas table décor and sensational works by young British artist, Dani Robson. Upstairs in the Sky-Bar were more works by contemporary artist, Sam Baxter. The crowd was royally entertained with live Motown music, top DJs, lithe acrobatics and a fire show, among other surprises. A fashion show of glam haute couture for men and women by Remy Hou, one of LA’s hottest designers of the moment, was engineered by Remy brand’s debut in Spain.


Sipping cocktails in the spacious, chill-out lounge, dining on creative world cuisine, or partying to the best music in town are just some of the attractions you can expect to find when you step into Güey, the latest “in” venue in Marbella. The spectacular split-level venue is one of Marbella’s hidden gems – encompassing an inviting international restaurant, lush gardens, chill-out terrace and a bijou wine cellar stocked with the best vintages and champagnes. Following recent changes, Güey now has one of the most exciting management teams in town, and the venue is all set to wow Marbella’s chic, cosmopolitan crowd with divine décor, amazing ambience and gorgeous gastronomy.

Headed up by restaurant manager, Jörgen Abrahamsson, formerly of Magna Café, diners at Güey will be in expert hands. Güey is also lucky enough to have event maestro Johnnie B. Gomez on board to orchestrate magical nights of live music, fashion and fabulous fiestas. With a following stretching from his native Manhattan to Madrid, Sotogrande and Marbella, Johnnie B has taken the inspiration for the new Güey from the coolest restaurants and cocktail bars in Columbus Avenue in New York.


Central to Güey’s allure is the outstanding, inspirational cuisine, with an irresistible repetoire of freshest dishes. The talented new chef and team will no doubt be developing a fashionable following for their stunningly presented signature dishes such as Magret of Duck with Cherry Wasabi Sauce, Vegetables & Butter fried New Potatoes or Grilled Red Tuna with Lime & Ginger Sauce, served on a bed of Spinach & Julienne Vegetables or “Beef Royal” Tournedos of Beef, with Foie Gras & Tiger Prawns, on a Bed of White Truffle & Sherry Gravy – soon to become legend among Marbella’s gourmets.

Add to this an outstanding repetoire of live music, and the best blend of sexy soul, jazz, chillout and urban classics, Güey also surprises with fashion, art and inspirational events. Güey’s trendy, multilingual staff provide professional and swift service, all the way from 11am – to drinks at 2am (or 3am on Saturdays). Open 7 days a week, valet parking is available from 2pm. The venue also offers free Wi-Fi throughout.

Below I include some of the images from the evening.
