Ibiza Clubs – Pacha

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 … Continue reading Ibiza Clubs – Pacha

Ibiza Clubs – Es Paradis

History: A stunning vision for a nightclub. Whitewashed stonework, roman columns, fountains and lush tropical plants all housed in a giant glass pyramid with retractable roof. Created as an equally hip alternative to Pacha in the 70s until San Antonio became a major package holiday destination and legions of loony ravers pretty much took over. Famous for: The Fiesta Del Aqua, which turns the beautiful sunken dancefloor into a swimming pool, and the end of the night into a giant water fight to music. Vibe: One of the most varied mixtures of different nights on the island, ranging from trance … Continue reading Ibiza Clubs – Es Paradis

Ibiza Clubs – El Divino

History: Built to appeal to the yachting crowd who moor up alongside it all summer, this (relatively) small venue is where many established promoters first cut their teeth on the island. A gorgeous location with spectacular views make it popular these days with everyone looking for a bit of glam with their big room tunes. Famous for: Its waterfront location, including an exclusive boat service that ferries clubbers across from the other side of the port – the most stylish way to make your entrance! Vibe: Less hectic and freaky than most of the other big clubs, more like a … Continue reading Ibiza Clubs – El Divino

Ibiza Clubs – Eden

History: The reincarnation of a dodgy San Antonio disco by the owners of Cafe Mambo has lead to the successful creation of one of the island’s major new clubs. It’s aimed squarely at Brits, with familiar UK clubbing names in the house every night. Famous for: Judge Jules helped design the place and his Judgement Sundays have ruled the roost ever since. Vibe: Full on. Home to some of hardest sounds on the island and consequently some of the most nutty clubbers. Crowd: It’s Brits all the way in here, 4500 of them! Do: Check out the back room, home … Continue reading Ibiza Clubs – Eden

Ibiza Clubs – DC 10

can certainly be said to hold its own as a result of Monday mornings prized Circo Loco parties. These started off as free events in a crumbling old barn, but word soon spread. Now, in spite of the no frills location and door charge, this is where the planet’s most professional hedonists come to really cut loose. Famous for: Utterly shameless merry making, including stage-diving DJs, pogo-ing club freaks and a whole host of seriously colourful regulars, all partying while most of us are usually hard at work in the office. Vibe: Not for the faint hearted. Seasoned clubbers dominate … Continue reading Ibiza Clubs – DC 10

Ibiza Clubs – Amnesia

History: The first major outdoor club on the island. Where young tourists Danny Rampling and Paul Oakenfold famously skipped around hand in hand to DJ Alfredo’s Balearic music before going home and kick-starting the acid house era. It doesn’t get more seminal than that, and the place continues to be hugely influential today, hosting key long-running nights. Famous for: The giant ice cannon, so powerful it blasts a packed dancefloor to freezing point in five seconds. The same space is also renowned for the bubbly silliness of regular foam parties. Vibe: For DJ hero worship, the main booth is a … Continue reading Ibiza Clubs – Amnesia
