Whilst the very pulse of Ibiza beats relentlessly on the heart of all of its dance floors and no sensation quite compares to a chilling ice-cannon exploding onto the dance floor as the beat drops, some of us prefer to experience Ibiza’s nightlife with a little less sweat and a little more luxury.
Steering clear of an ocean of fist pumps and clambering bodies, few venues do a complete VIP experience like Pacha Ibiza. Globally renowned as Ibiza’s original and most glamorous club, Pacha Ibiza illustrates the perfect example of why you should taste the VIP lifestyle on the White Isle.
Here are five reasons why you need to go VIP in Ibiza this summer.
It’s even worse when you’re running late; you could miss your favourite act and even end up paying more if you miss certain cut-off times. By choosing VIP at Pacha Ibiza, not only do you get to walk straight in, you can leave as late as you want and still be in ahead of everyone else! The perfect arrival if you ask us.
When you opt to go VIP style at Pacha Ibiza, not only do you get your own space, you get your own table for the night too. You get to stand up, sit down, put your feet up and drink as much champers as you want – heck, why don’t you even starfish the table? Okay maybe not…
Alternatively, you could choose the smarter option and enjoy the privileges of the VIP life by getting access to your own bar. Less queues, less stress and best of all, it comes included with the price of the table! Win, win, win.
When choosing VIP, you expect to get what you pay for and nothing less – this includes the best views in the club. From being situated just behind the decks to being given a prime time table with aerial views second-to-none, the best visuals are always supplied from the VIP seats.
Standing and watching sometimes doesn’t satisfy our swinging hips and stomping feet, so by having the ability to leave your VIP table and fuel your adrenaline on the dance floor along with other passionate party-goers is another extra added bonus of the VIP treatment at Pacha Ibiza.
It only feels like yesterday when we were stood inside the Discoteca, hands aloft with tears in our eyes as Carl Cox finished up 27 years of clubbing greatness at Space Ibiza with Angie Stone’s ‘Wish I Didn’t Miss You’. However as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and new beginnings arise.
Taking its place is Ushuaïa Entertainment’s newest Ibiza clubbing instalment, Hï Ibiza. Described as what will be an evolutionary nightclub experience of the highest order, this ambitious vision will be devoted to uniting all portals of the electronic music realm through quality music and incredible energy.
Designed with the clubber at the forefront of their focus, this state of the art venue will ultimately bring world class music experiences by showcasing the most exciting names in dance music throughout the duration of the summer.
Inviting all hedonists, clubbers, dreamers and party animals from all four corners of the globe, Hï Ibiza will officially open its gates to the world for its highly anticipated opening party on Sunday 28th May!
Hï Ibiza – the start of a beautiful friendship that can lead to a bigger world of discovery.
Replacing a nightspot called Mama which was adjoined to Hotel Garbi, Swag Ibiza has now become the go-to destination for those in search of something different and those in search of opening Ibiza’s ear to the sound of urban music.
With hip-hop beats, grooves, raps and rhymes at their disposal and international live acts flying in to deliver special live performances (these include Nina Sky and DMX), the potential for Swag Ibiza to grow even further as a club even though it has not long been open just speaks volumes already.
Swag Ibiza is currently in a promising position as is the urban music scene and this will continue to happen whilst the action continues to remain on fire on the dance floor every week. Sooner or later, Swag Ibiza won’t be able to provide anyone with any room to move, let alone dance, as it will be that jam-packed as the weeks progress!
With an objective of trying to get urban music noticed more and back on the map in Ibiza, Swag Ibiza will lead by example in spreading the word about urban music and what they offer which is completely different to that of any other super-club – now you have no excuses but to come and check out just exactly why everyone keeps talking about Swag Ibiza.
However in terms of Ibiza, there is one venue in particular that doesn’t agree with a lot of the local music and party culture and therefore decided to take it into their own hands to create their very own, this was Veto Social Club Ibiza.
Whilst “veto” in terms of politics may not always represent the view of the public, the term “veto” in Veto Social Club Ibiza is certainly intended to. With objections to enjoying captivating and exciting music beyond genre-limitations in a delightful and inspiring atmosphere, Veto Social Club Ibiza is very different to what the local scene on the White Isle has to offer. In search of real experiences and methods of expression in the purist of mannerisms, Veto Social Club Ibiza also offers music enthusiasts a view to life outside of mainstream music where sonic and visual environments are free to be explored.
When exploring the premises, Veto Social Club Ibiza always acts as the perfect host presenting its guests to get the opportunity to enjoy a mind-blowing cocktail lounge, an exquisite bar, a sensational terrace and of course, an intense and intimate club atmosphere like no other allowing you to get lost in whatever world you wish so desire – basically, life’s always good when inside this hidden gem.
Different to anything else the White Isle has to offer, Veto Social Club Ibiza is run by a group of artists coming from a strong Rock background who possess a passion of caring for a musical landscape with diversity. It is also an opportunity for those on the same wavelength to enjoy a platform in which they can’t experience anywhere else in Ibiza.
With the only requirements needed being positivity, respect and a smile, the doors of Veto Social Club Ibiza are open to anyone looking to taste something new in this party capital paradise.
Master Chefs in the kitchen and masterminds behind this masterpiece, Spain’s most prized kitchen possessions, brothers Ferran and Albert Adria as well as global entertainment juggernaut, Cirque de Soleil, constructed together a gift that simply keeps on giving. From the joys of the open-air terrace to the beauty of the succulent street food seductions, it definitely is a delight to see such a scintillating supper room combine together with extraordinary art and performance.
In addition to this, Heart Ibiza has also seen its fair share of celebrated names walk through its doors and grace its unique stage. These range from Duran Duran and George Clinton to Sven Vath and Guy Gerber. At Heart Ibiza, you must simply expect the unexpected, that’s for certain.
Artistic creations from such international galleries like Ventana Contemporary Ibiza and Art Project Ibiza can be admired at Heart Ibiza. The works of the likes of Miguel Chevalier and Takashi Murakami can leave you speechless staring on in amazement. Cirque de Soleil’s involvement also completes the unique qualities of Heart Ibiza with its own body painters, muses, urban dancers, contemporary choreographers and more.
This year will see it’s doors open on Friday 26th May.
With such values as fun, leisure and free-spirit being shared in volumes. Heart Ibiza screams everything that is positive and worth experiencing about the White Isle. Step foot in here and you will walk out a changed person for life.
It’s very rare that life outside of paradise in Ibiza comes in more heavenly doses however when it does, it is simply breath-taking and the aforementioned all applies to that of the party capital’s wonderful neighbour, Formentera.
Located just four miles south of Ibiza with a population just short of the capacity of the White Isle’s largest super-club, Formentera knows how to throw a party too and where else better to strut your stuff than at Tipic Club Formentera?
Possessing a capacity of around 500 people on the Eastern side of the island in Es Pujols, Tipic Club Formentera has a rich history having first played host to an event in 1971 featuring Pink Floyd. Cocoon saw the potential in Tipic Club Formentera and over the past five years, Cocoon has provided revellers with something unique and different compared to what Ibiza has to offer.
As the tourism increases in Formentera, so does the demand to experience Tipic Club Formentera – we advise that you do it at the earliest opportunity you get this summer.
Set in its beautiful surrounding, high up in the mountains, Cova Santa Ibiza is one of the most beautiful places you can visit on the island. To add to this, an indoor club and an outdoor terrace, you can see why Amnesia felt the need to make it their own, and so they did. The superclub bought Cova Santa Ibiza in 2001.
In 2012 Cova Santa Ibiza held the first after party for Marco Carola’s Music On, which was a huge success. In 2013 two further after parties were held, with almost 3000 revellers attending, much to the despair of the police, council and residents.
Whilst Underground Ibiza may not exactly be a super-club and hold the capacity of people that some of the island’s largest clubs do, this particular venue is unique and special and is simply a privilege to be apart of once inside.
Beginning life as a villa, there hasn’t been many changes to Underground Ibiza as the years have progressed. Underground Ibiza is exclusive, it is intimate and you are apart of something not many people know about, therefore it is also very secretive.
With a large outside terrace providing room to chill out, taking in the music and chat to others in attendance, Underground Ibiza is almost exclusive to workers and residents of Ibiza. Another big difference between Underground Ibiza and the big super-clubs of Ibiza is with Underground, you receive cheap or free entry along with an inclusive drink!
Underground Ibiza is a chilled-out, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and because of this, this is truly a wonderful Ibiza hangout spot. You may even catch the odd big-named DJ inside just to add to the uniqueness of the atmosphere.
Underground Ibiza is completely different to any other club on the island and is definitely worth checking out – it just goes to show how diverse the nightlife in Ibiza actually is thus further cementing it’s status as the number one clubbing destination on the entire planet.
Like a rocket launching itself into outer space, 1989 was the year Space Ibiza took off from it’s launching pad and had continued it’s sensational journey around a universe surrounded by sun, music and some of the best nights Ibiza has to offer, until its closing in 2016.
Having a capacity crowd of 2000 in just the main room alone under the roof of the world famous Space Ibiza, a trip to the party capital without a visit here would definitely leave you regretting the decision by the time you return home. Especially given the electricity that flowed around the room during the amtomsphere that was created by the crowd as a plane soared low over the Playa D’En Bossa super-club.
Please note that Space Ibiza has now closed
As previously mentioned, Space Ibiza had a huge main room which held an incredible amount of people and was just an experience to die for when it was in it’s prime. In addition to this, the super-club possessed it’s own element of uniqueness where it contributes different sounds together in various different rooms which is what made Space Ibiza what it was, unique!
Another element that separated Space Ibiza from other clubs on the White Isle are some of it’s longest running nights in the clubs history. Firstly you had Carl Cox’s nights on Tuesday’s sparking literally a music revolution with a strong heavenly presence from the techno world featuring there. Then you had We Love that took over on Sunday’s including some of the very best in electric music.
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.
Located deep into the heart of the popular resort of Playa D’En Bossa and just short bus ride away from San Antonio, Sankeys Ibiza is not only at the top of many workers’ to do lists, but many tourists are also keen to tick this box off too.
Catering this underground safe haven to a younger target audience, owner David Vincent has helped establish Sankeys Ibiza as one of the most in-demand clubbing structures the island has to offer.
Since its inception back in 2011, the Sankeys Ibiza brand has gained the respect of the dance music nation through a selection of successful nights from over the years.
Only under the roof of Sankeys Ibiza were you able to witness and experience the raw electricity and energy provided by such explosive nights as VIVa Warriors, Tribal Sessions and CUFF. Of course, this can only mean explosive music follows. Traditionally in the form of house or techno, the illustrious likes of Steve Lawler, Darius Syrossian and Amine Edge & Dance have all established strong, loyal followings from their residencies here.
Delivering you a night of unique and unrivalled underground proportions, Sankeys Ibiza applies the exact same criteria to all three of its rooms. Holding a maximum capacity of 1,500 revellers, this sacred White Isle spectacular was constructed specifically to provide a similar atmosphere to the original that once existed back in Manchester.
Consisting of no more than three rooms, there’s no better way to name them than the Spektrum – this includes a massive open air terrace, smoking area, eccentric LED lighting and an extraordinary box. You then have the Lab which allows you to feel the beats of the music dropped through your feet on the floor and finally, the Basement – possessing one of the most immense VOID sound systems around and of course you can’t forget that underground energy to complete the perfect vibe.
A favourite amongst the locals, the workers and tourists – Sankeys Ibiza is hands down one of the most sought-after underground experiences available in the party capital today.
