Omar Soremo: BP was open in 1999, at the beginning it was a Restaurant - Piano Bar, after few months it changed to a Lounge Club. The name has come when the owner was visiting a shop and saw a very nice boat named "Black Pearl" then he decided to give this name even before the famous movie "Pirates Of Carabbean". The politic of the club is always "Quality and not Quantity" with the best bar and table service and the best Hospitality and security. We are considered now-a-day "The Best Club in the area". The prices are normal for a club in Switzerland (Long-drink 17 Chf - Bottles starting from 180 Chf).

DJANEMAG: Do you notice more guest activity at nights when DJane is announced (in comparison with male DJs shows)? 


Omar Soremo: It happened many times, people are more joyful and receptif when we have Djanes. The crowd get easily capted by their beauty and mixing skills. For exemple, everytime when we book Olga Ryazanova, we are sure to have more reservations than normal male djs.
