Why is ICON Malabar in Málaga special?

ICON Malabar is located within a building that once belonged to Tomás Heredia Livermore, a prominent Malagan merchant who became the first major importer of iron in Spain during the 19th century. This serves as a tribute to other entrepreneurs, collectors, and enthusiasts of local architecture and history who played an active role in the city, supporting causes and sponsoring initiatives to enhance the image of Malaga. With an interior design that pays homage to the history and civilizations that left their mark on Malaga (Phoenician, Carthaginian, Roman, and Andalusian), ICON Malabar is a remarkable colonial-style boutique hotel situated in the Soho district of Malaga, close to La Malagueta Beach, Calle Larios, and the Antonio Banderas Theatre. A splendid central foyer and a beautiful courtyard create a welcoming atmosphere bathed in the natural light that permeates the entire hotel. The exquisite Salsa Menta Café restaurant offers a culinary touch with healthy culinary proposals inspired by the rich Malagan heritage. Additionally, in close proximity are the Picasso Museum and the Contemporary Art Centre, two must-visit attractions to complete a charming journey.

Salsa Menta Café is, in addition, a highly functional concept filled with intricate details. Did you know that the restaurant's fountain was inspired by Arabic designs? It simulates the movement of water within the hotel to connect you with the significance of Malaga's port and sea. This is the ambiance we aim to create at Salsa Menta Café. The courtyard and latticework are also inspired by Arabic culture, while the tiles draw their inspiration from Picasso's Guernica.
