An evening at Jacks Smokehouse in Puerto Banús

Many people will no doubt be aware of Jacks restaurant in Puerto Banús. Previously known as Jacks American Brasserie, it first opened its doors back in 1999 and soon became a firm favourite with locals and visitors to Marbella.

It enjoys an enviable position on Puerto Banus’s frontline overlooking the iconic marina and it has now been relaunched as Jacks Smokehouse – an idea based on Metro Group head chef Lorenzo Otterburn’s visit to Las Vegas.

We were as usual delighted to be invited to this year’s La Sala by the Sea “White & Gold Party” on Friday, the traditional start to Marbella’s summer season. The invitation promised a great atmosphere, live music and much, much more including canapes from their Thai inspired menu.

From the minute we arrived, the invitation started to live up to its promise with music from DJ Scott Strutton filling the night air. The venue was of course decorated with white and gold.

Virgen del Carmen in Marbella 2015

Virgen del Carmen is celebrated every year in Marbella on 16 July. She is the patron saint of fishermen and her statue is carried through the streets from the chapel where she is stored to the Puerto de la Bajadilla (Marbella’s fishing port), accompanied by a band and a number of local dignatories. Crowds gather, cheer and throw white carnations.

On arrival at the fishing port, the fishing boats are blessed . The throne is then transferred to a boat and she makes her way by sea to Puerto Banús accompanied by local fishermen, numerous pleasure boats and jet skis. On the return journey, the flowers are thrown into the sea as an offering to those who lost their lives at sea and a blessing is given. The procession then returns to the Puerto Deportivo (Marina) in Marbella and makes its way through the streets of Marbella back to her chapel.

Street Markets

Street Markets

Street Markets are a part of Marbella. Depending on which one you choose, you will usually find some amazing bargains. It is also a very colourful way to shop and maybe try out some of your Spanish phrases!! Whichever market you choose to visit, there is always a very friendly atmosphere. And don’t forget, it is completely acceptable to barter.

The Monday market in Marbella sells normal household items like clothes, handbags, jewelry and much, much more. There is also a local produce section. Here, you will find deliciously fresh fruit and vegetables, all from local growers and sellers offering herbs, spices, nuts and sweets.

The San Pedro Market on Thursday is a much larger market, with more stalls than there is in Marbella. It offers great choices. Other markets are the Las Chapas market on Friday, the Puerto Banús market on Saturday which are a little different. They include designer stalls offering clothing and jewelry.

The Artisan market in Marbella’s Puerto Deportivo is a wonderful way to enjoy your Sunday, looking at all the interesting local artisan pictures, jewelry, art and much more.
