First opening its doors in 1989, Space Ibiza was one of Ibiza’s oldest, most famous venues which made a revolutionary impact upon the clubbing scene as a whole. Officially closing its doors in 2016, this highly acclaimed institution remained open for a phenomenal 27 years.
Owned by legendary Ibicenco, Pepe Rosello, Space Ibiza became renowned for its unadulterated daytime partying. Located over in Playa d’en Bossa, the club played hosts to some of electronic music’s most influential figures including Carl Cox, Luciano, Richie Hawtin and Tale Of Us.
During the years it was open, Space Ibiza was split across five impressive individual rooms including an incredible Main Room, the exemplary Space Terrace as well as three partly outdoor sections including the Sunset Terrace, Premier Etage and El Salon. It’s exceptional opening and closing parties also saw the venue extend proceedings out into the Car Park providing an extra stage for prolonged daytime dancing.
As previously mentioned, Space Ibiza eventually closed its doors once and for all back in October 2016 with what was quite arguably one of the island’s most memorable closing parties of all time. A mammoth 20 hour journey featuring everyone from Carl Cox, Maceo Plex and Solomon to Steve Lawler, Tale Of Us and Erick Morillo as well as every dance music classic in between, the most authoritative Ibiza club bowed out in appropriate fashion.
Since the venue’s closure, Space Ibiza has been replaced by the island’s latest clubbing institution which has ushered in a brand new chapter into the White Isle’s decorated dance music history called Hi Ibiza.
With the closing of Space Ibiza in 2016, it leaves a strong legacy of what Ibiza is today and how music has shaped the scene on the White Isle. If you were lucky enough to have witnessed Space Ibiza in all its glory, you can gladly say you were part of clubbing history.
