As we’ve previously discussed in another blog post, Ibiza is on the up this year, proving to be more popular than ever for a clubbing holiday. If you’ve never been, it’s hard to know which Ibiza clubs are the best and which ones are the most suited to you. Having once spent a summer in Ibiza I feel like I got to know the resort pretty well so I’ve decided to give you a rundown of the best parties in town.
Space: Probably in the running as one of the best clubs on the island, Space is a huge both indoor and outdoor club which sees many big names in house and dance play every summer. I’d recommend We Love Space on a Sunday if you’re thinking of trying out the club. Expect big names such as Groove Armada, The Chemical Brothers and Fat Boy Slim to play here. Space is just off from Playa d’en Bossa, and you can expect ticket prices of around €60. Carl Cox on Tuesdays is also a very popular night (bit heavier than We Love). You can buy your Space tickets before hand on the Travel Republic site if you wanted to save yourself some money as the price is much higher when in resort. If you love house music and don’t mind a sweaty crowd then you’ll love Space.
Pacha: Get your glad rags on for a night out in Pacha, as this is one the classiest clubs on the island. Set in central Ibiza Town, Pacha is where all the beautiful people go to party (you might even spot a few celebs here). One of the most popular nights is F**k me I’m Famous, which is the resident night for David Guetta every Thursday. I’d recommend Pacha for those who aren’t into their heavy dance music and like to dance to songs they recognise! Tickets are very popular and you can expect to pay between €70-€80 to get in. If you want to plan in advance then you can buy your Pacha tickets on site, again for a lot cheaper!
Amnesia: Located in what feels like the middle of the motorway just outside of San Antonio, Amnesia is one of the legendary clubs of Ibiza. It has 2 huge rooms and is known for techno and house music. It’s sweaty and crowded with an amazing and fun atmosphere; keep an eye out for the giant ice cannons on the dance floor. Cream on Thursdays and Cocoon on Mondays are the most popular nights; both very heavily techno themed so bear that in mind. Tickets are around €60-€70, there’s also a free party bus to both San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa.
Privilege: This is the biggest club in the world and it’s worth a night out just to see how big it is. The club nights here aren’t as well known as the others but it’s still a great experience. The DJ booth is in the middle of a giant swimming pool (not for swimming strangely enough) and some of the rooms have giant trees inside. Worth it just to explore!
Eden and Es Paradis: Both clubs are set in San Antonio and offer a cheaper alternative to some of the other super clubs. Many of the nights are free or reasonably priced. The best night in Eden has to be Judgement Fridays (formally Judgement Sundays) and for Es Paradis the water party is really fun.
Ibiza Rocks– Set in central San Antonio this is one of the only places where indie, rock and dance all come together in unity. This year Ibiza Rocks hotel has secured gigs from The Vaccines, Ellie Goulding and Rizzle Kicks to name a few. The hotel is most defiantly a party hotel and the gigs at the hotel are very good. Stays at the Ibiza Rocks hotels are also very reasonable, starting from just £16 per person per night.
Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel– A boutique party hotel set in Playa den Bossa, Ushuaia has in recent years become the host of big dance events. Often hosting Radio One parties with performances from Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta it’s become one the main parties on the island. This is an upmarket hotel with its own club and events, where stays start from £69 per person per night.
These are the main clubs in Ibiza but by no means the only ones. There is such a huge choice of clubs in Ibiza that it can be hard to choose, and you particularly want to get it right when you’re spending so much money on a ticket, so hopefully this post has helped. There are plenty of cheap hotels in San Antonio (party central) and for a slightly more chilled out option there are lots of hotels in Playa d’en Bossa and Ibiza Town. Wherever you decide to go or stay, make sure you go to at least one of the big clubs; once you’ve been to one you’ll have no problem justifying spending so much on a ticket!
Any that you think I’ve missed out?
