Ibiza’s best club’s

November 20, 2016 | By:


An exciting summer was had this year which included a visit to Ibiza I decided to fit in and review the super clubs and must see venues Ibiza has to offer, in short must do’s if you have the opportunity to visit this amazing place.  With a combination of sun, sea, great club atmosphere’s and world famous DJs it is clear to see why this is definitely a holiday hotspot.  Here is a list of the best places and acts I had a chance to be a part of in Ibiza this year and some of the clubs I recommend visiting…………….
Pacha

Certainly one of the largest clubs Ibiza has to offer it was one of the most memorable, well organised and magnificent evening’s of the holiday.  With outstanding sound systems delivering a clear and powerful listening experience in any location within the club and some of the most visually amazing lighting it makes Pacha one of the best rave venue’s the island has to offer. Pacha plays host to some of the biggest names in the music scene and I was fortunate to go on the night of Solomun with plus one Anna.  Solomun is known for redefining House Music across Europe. Enhancing this genre with a modern and intense twist demonstrated by mind blowing DJ sets and productions means Solomun most certainly knows how to put on a spectacularly exciting evening with a fast paced vibe that never falters. With a raw emotion and passion for music he delivers outstanding set’s including famous boiler room set which has around eight million views and the fasted growing Boiler room video to date.  All in all if you are visiting Ibiza Pacha is a must and if possible DJ Solomun as his set is one not to be missed…….

Privilege

The only way to introduce this venue is by first stating that with a capacity of 10,000 people  Privilege is the largest night club in the entire world!  Beginning in the early 1970s starting out as a restaurant before expanding to include a bar and swimming pool it was known as Club San Rafael. After being sold in 1979 changed it’s name to Ku before becoming Privilege in 1995.  Mentioned in film ‘Kevin and Perry go large’ and previous host to famous event ‘Manumission’ Privilege is without a doubt one of the most awe inspiring and well laid out venues in Ibiza. The sound was impeccable with deep base heard from every inch of the venue making it feel as though you were still at the front of the stage even if listening from far back.  The lights and lasers used there were most certainly the best and delivered lighting that emphasized the splendid layout and out of this world sounds, all working hand in hand to produce the best rave possible.  I was fortunate enough to be visiting Ibiza on the dates allowing me to attend the ‘Paint Party’ held at this one of a kind venue. This unique concept by ‘Midnight’ held on Tuesday night’s at Privilege brings a combination the most must see DJs in the music scene, an abundance of colour and one of the best party atmosphere’s you are likely to experience.  With six paint cannons catapulting eight hundred litres of paint into the dancing crowd not to mention the bottles of squeezable paint that could be purchased by party goers on site there is not a more colourful evening to be had. Along with animation and special effects this visually and musically stimulating event is one of the most exciting and different club night’s to attend in Ibiza and a must to add to the diary.

Space is by far one of the best club’s in Ibiza when it comes to size, sound systems, lighting, events and atmosphere.  Although Space opened in 1986 it did not take it’s true form until being taken over by Pepe Rosello in 1989 who began introducing top DJ’s to it’s stage to include the likes of Jose de Divina, Reche and Carl Cox who maintained a residency for almost fifteen years.  However with Rosello stepping down Carl Cox has had a final closing show at Space in September 2016 ending his residency at this unique super club.  The amazing sound and lighting systems used by Space went together perfectly with the exceptional entertainment making the evening flawless. I went to the Elrow event held at Space and with regards to entertainment this was the most fun and out there performance I have ever experienced at a rave particularly one of this magnitude.  Consisting of Inflatables, confetti and fun the actors there are inclusive of the crowd and make you feel as though you are a part of the show.  Never a dull moment there were trapeze type performers putting on amazing acts above the crowd, things such as hats being given away and a continuous burst of colour for the entirety of the event.   Elrow at Space was the most surreal, unique and crazy event I was able to attend while visiting Ibiza and certainly the most memorable. With DJs such as Groove Armada, Eats Everything and Kolsch plus many more playing the Space stage’s it is always a night of nonstop colour, fun, entertainment and good music.

Ocean Beach

Probably my favourite day and night time venue in Ibiza.  With a mix of sophistication, good drinks, excellent food, entertainment and atmosphere Ocean Beach is certainly up there with the best. With all entertainment and features set around a 600m2 swimming pool it leaves nothing to be desired. With a choice of Fusion Cuisine ranging from light bites or full lunches which can be served al fresco to one of the many beds by the pool, invigorating massage from one of the fully qualified Ocean Beach Therapists or one of the specialist cocktails created by absolute or one of the other amazing bars, Ocean Beach has all the ingredients needed to make a superb establishment.  With both local and international artists gracing the Ocean Beach stage to wondrous trapeze acts interacting with the crowd and throwing out prizes ranging from CDs, T-shirts, Tops and other merchandise the time there is visually and musically inspiring and entertaining.  The VIP is most certainly to be desired with the venue providing the ultimate beach club experience to include a personal waiter service and other special perks.  For a day and evening combining good music, food and vibe Ocean Beach is a must see when visiting Ibiza………
