Designed by architect Dimitri Tsigos and powered by a Funktion One system, the aim of the new boutique club is as follows: “to provide a space in Mykonos where serious clubbers can enjoy quality music.” The performance from Apollonia follows acts like South African heavyweight Black Coffee and Maceo Plex.
