Albir is a very cosmopolitan town, the part of Alfaz Del Pi by the seaside. Every year the town changes and expands. With new business, shops, bars and restaurants opening all the time. This time of year is a very busy period and there has been a lot of activity around the town, with the opening of new establishments to enjoy.
Albir Restaurants and Bars
On C/Rupeto Chapi there has been the opening of two new cafe/bars. The YOU LOUNGE has replaced what was Mr T’s, and CHAPI QUATRO has replaced what was Colours.
On the sea front there have been changes. What was the Chicken House Pub is now a restaurant/bar called Panorama and the long standing restaurant El Racó Playa has undergone a total refurbishment.
There is also news on the high street. The long standing Cafeteria Nebraska has been closed and vacant since Christmas 2018, but we now see signs of activity of a refurbishment for imminent re-opening (opened mid 2019 as Ruta Del Cafe). There is also talk of the new Albir Voices karaoke bar to open in June on the road up the hill towards the Hotel Rober Palas and The Orange Tree. (opened in July 20’19 but now closed again following Covid-19).
The big restaurant what was Fandango’s has also been taken over and is soon re-opening as a Scandinavian based bar restaurant called La Fama. There is also a new restaurant to enjoy, where Sun Garden was, on the parade of shops opposite Mercadona.
The large Asian restaurant on the roundabout by the Albir Mini Market has changed from Ming Yuan Teppanyaki to the GURKHA Nepalese and Indian Restaurant.
There is so much to enjoy in Albir. It is great for all the visitors to have so much choice. But is there too much for the amount of people that frequent them. There is a fear that with so many bars and restaurants opening and customer numbers dwindling that many will not be able to continue with a long sustainable future 🙁
