Café del Mar (Catalan: [kəˈfe ðəɫ ˈma], Spanish: [kaˈfe ðel mar]; "Sea Café") is a record label known for its series of chillout CDs.[1] The label originated from a bar located in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza.


The Café del Mar was founded on 20 June 1980. The look of the Café del Mar was designed by architect Lluis Güell. He was in charge of the design, decoration and architecture.[citation needed]


Café del Mar releases balearic ambient, easy listening music. The collections of the music played at the café were first sold on cassette at the end of the 1980s. In 1994, the first official “Café del Mar” CD was released; a total of 20 volumes of the main compilation series have been published.[citation needed]

The artists[edit]

Café del Mar compilations contain music by Pat Metheny, A. R. Rahman, Moby, Jean Michel Jarre, Chicane, Underworld, Afterlife - Steve Miller, and Thomas Newman.
