Find out more

The San Mames BAT VIP area aspires to become a benchmark in the world of sport through a project that combines football, passion, fans, and culinary excellence, as a true reflection of what Athletic Club and Bizkaia represent.

Athletic Club wants to make the GUNE GASTRONOMIKOA of BIZKAIA -the haven of fine dining- in the San Mames BAT VIP area- a place of culinary excellence. It seeks to attract and recognise chefs, organisations, institutions, producers and colleges that have managed to spread the word about Bizkaia’s cuisine throughout the world, thereby turning fine dining into a driver of the local tourist sector.

The Team

This project is spearheaded by the Athletic Club ‘gourmet eleven’: the Michelin-starred chefs Daniel García, Eneko Atxa, Fernando Canales, Josean Alija, Julen Baz, Jerónimo Peña, Vitalie Nofit and Sergio Zarate, an outstanding local line-up that aims to turn San Mamés into a Cathedral of Fine Dining.

The service at the San Mames BAT VIP area on matchdays is provided by renowned local restaurants with at least one Michelin star: Nerua Guggenheim Bilbao, Garena, Azurmendi (3*), Andra Mari, Eneko, Atelier Etxanobe, Zarate, Zortziko, and Boroa, the finest exponents of local cuisine.
