LOST BEACH CLUB
Position: 
35
up 9

What Lost Beach owner/creator Kami has done to the Montanita town in western Ecuador where the club is based is little short of revolutionary. Before he rocked up there a decade or so ago it was just “a small hippy surf beach town”, but Kami helped install proper street lighting and other bits of infrastructure and now the town is abuzz. The Lost Beach club itself is a revelation. The principal outdoor main floor, fully Funktion-One’d up, gives way to the indoor The Cave at 4am — an amazing, intimate room to play — with a series of labyrinthine rooms being added to all the time (The Baby Cave is the latest). 

 

All around the club is a series of 3-D murals painted by Ecuadorian artist Ivan Casanova, who has been painting virtually non-stop for six years. If you put on special glasses, the art pops out at you like a 3-D movie. This is just one of Lost Beach’s many draws. When you hear that the likes of Latmun, Lee Foss, Fur Coat, Bushwacka! and Solardo name Lost Beach as one of their favourite places in the world, you get a good idea of what’s in store.
