History: The original island night spot. It has sprawled to accommodate ever more opulent dance floors, bars and rooms over the last 34 years. The benchmark for club luxury the world over, spawning both imitators and its own chain of venues, sporting the infamous naughty cherry logo, from New York to Marrakech. The island empire also includes clothes shops, bars, a magazine, casino and the swanky El Hotel.
Famous for: Celebrity clientele. Whether it be the annual appearance of Puff Daddy, Jade Jager’s DJ residency or Diego Maradona pumping his ‘hand of god’ in the air to Erick Morillo, you’re sure to be rubbing shoulders with somebody who’s someone on any given night.
Vibe: Quintessential Ibiza. Some people find the vast balconies full of posh VIP tables a bit much, but then every summer, this is the most important place for today’s serious jet set to be seen.
Crowd: A cosmopolitan mix of well over 3000 clubbers of all ages and persuasions. From chic island hippies to wealthy playboys, there’s plenty to see, and amazing dancers too.
Do: Take a break from the main room madness with a drink on the gorgeous roof terrace. Fabulous, dharling!
Don’t: Get there too late. Getting in on a busy night (that’s most of ‘um) can be a right hassle unless you’ve clearly just stepped off a yacht.
