/Leisure & Restaurant Experiences/

A hymn to freedom and a way of understanding life

/A philosophy that penetrates deeply into the projects they undertake/

Starting from its very personal universe, the Vivir Descalzo group creates unique spaces with the aim of enjoying leisure and restaurants in pleasant and relaxed environments, without losing sight of the quality of the product. But above all, it creates spaces for those who are always looking for that je ne sais quoi that makes them places with soul, special and different.

Entering the universe of the Vivir Descalzo leisure and restaurant group means doing so in spaces where the visitor feels part of it, where one feels the freedom of being oneself and being able to show oneself to the world as one is. In this universe the known is anonymous and the unknown becomes the celebrity of the moment. Friendships become eternal for a few hours. The Vivir Descalzo leisure and restaurant group is characterized by the creation of unique and personal spaces in which each visitor feels they are the protagonist of their own history.

The group partners co-founded in 2012 (and successfully sold in June 2021) the BESO BEACH brand, cataloged at the time as «the best beach bar in Spain». After the sale of their shares, they grouped the rest of the brands under the umbrella of Vivir Descalzo. Currently, the leisure and restaurant group has a dozen operating business units, a very specific expansion plan and more than 300 employees.

The Vivir Descalzo group manages logos i) of proven success such as «ROTO», with two operational establishments located on the island of Ibiza and in the Formigal-Panticosa ski resort and which has made the leap to fashion, with its own collections clothing for men and women; ii) with a long history and recognized prestige such as “BORA BORA”, which has just celebrated its 15th anniversary and is undergoing a profound transformation; iii) aimed at the luxury segment such as «FILIN» or «MECHERO», the former located in one of the exclusive five-star marinas in the Mediterranean and the latter being the pop-up sensation of the season, to the point that the group is studying how and where to replicate the concept; iv) fun and carefree like “HORNIE PIZZA”, with two establishments on the island of Ibiza and where the Italian party you want to be a part of is celebrated every day; v) and functional as «SISSI’S» or «BARCO IBIZA», to provide direct, efficient and fair service to its customers. Badges with soul impregnated with the heart, the constant work and the humility with which they have been created.

The secret of the Vivir Descalzo group projects is based on the mix of ingredients. A combination of essential elements that all have exceptional human teams as their cornerstone, in which each employee becomes a fundamental part of the team and feels like an essential part of the project. And starting from the human teams, a restoration based on top-quality raw materials where local products are especially relevant and environments with a casual atmosphere and with a touch of rogue always accompanied by music, with its own style.

Because Living Barefoot deals with highly recognized and profitable projects consolidated as love-brands.


A visit to Ibiza necessarily goes through ROTO, the company’s flagship and the place to be on possibly the most touristic island in the world. Quality restoration with an excellent local product as a base, a privileged location on a breakwater with a view of the old walled city of Dalt Vila, a casual and fun atmosphere (“essence”, they call it) accompanied by music of today and always, played on vinyl, as a form of expression.

With waiting lists and full reservations months in advance, ROTO is the place to see and be seen, where friends meet no matter where they come from, and where the atmosphere is intoxicatingly unique.

Because on a trip to the snow, not everything is skiing, ROTO FORMIGAL is located in front of the slopes of the largest ski area in Spain, in the heart of Formigal, on the Lanuza reservoir and with privileged views of the Alto-Aragonese Pyrenees.

With a casual atmosphere and a kitchen where local flavors based on local products prevail, ROTO FORMIGAL is the place to see and be seen after an intense day of experiences in the snow.

Located in the heart of the luxury of Marina Ibiza, the most luxurious marina in the Mediterranean and one of the few rated with five stars, it is the «must» for owners, skippers and guests of large yachts who want to live the experience of the «after boat». With a cozy, vintage and inspiring look & feel, their breakfasts are healthy, tasty and sustainable.

At dinner time Filin has managed to unite the best of two gastronomic worlds: the Japanese and the Mediterranean, with a wide variety of cuts that delight sushi lovers. Exquisite treatment of the product.

In its bar, liquors, juices, signature cocktails and champagne are combined. Bartenders carve ice, release the scent of mint to garnish a glass, and serve unique cocktails to the mesmerizing spectacle of mega-yachts docking just a few meters away. A space that has become the protagonist of innumerable stories to tell day and night and, also, inside the boats thanks to its “boat-delivery” service.
