The Best Night Clubs in Ibiza

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

Dance music, house, techno, and trance along with raves and all night (and day parties) became the all rage in several cities around the globe during the 1990’s.

However the biggest explosion of this kind of revelry seemed to occur on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

Ibiza unlike its other Balearic island neighbors, Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera has a distinct ‘party animal’ and ‘boho’ vibe. Moreover it has long reigned as the party capital of the world as some of the best and most highly rated nightclubs are located here. Ibiza’s nightclubs are largely concentrated on two areas on this beautiful Island, around the capital of Ibiza town on the eastern shore and the resort town of Sant Antoni on the western shore. These clubs are usually packed to the gills with revelers during the warm Ibiza summers that extend from June to October though during the winter months most of these clubs down their shutters and hibernate.

So which are the clubs that rule the roost in Ibiza currently?

  • Space – the world’s best club

Space has been consistently voted the ‘Best Club’ in the world by no less than the world’s top DJs. The club was initially built on a converted car park and it was subsequently redesigned so that today the world’s greatest DJ’s, spin tunes from its famous Space decks from where the sound is transmitted through out the club by way of a top of the line sound system. DJ Carl Cox hosts a special Tuesday night techno music marathon at the club during the ‘clubbing’ season and the club’s season opening and closing nights are like mini dance festivals that are known to attract more than 20,000 clubbers. Sunday nights though are the most popular nights at Space.

  • Club Pacha – an institution

Club Pacha is a veritable institution on the Ibiza nightclub scene. This club was first established on a beach in Stiges in 1967 and it arrived in Ibiza in 1973. Since then it has spawned a global franchise that includes Pacha clubs in cities like New York, London and Buenos Aires. Pacha Ibiza stays open all year round and currently has popular Australian DJ Sarah Main as one of its main resident DJ’s. World renowned DJs like Peter Tong and David Morales have all enjoyed stints at Ibiza’s legendary Club Pacha.

  • Privilege – the world’s biggest club.

Touted to be the biggest club in the world not only in Ibiza, Privilege has played host to many an international celebrity including P. Diddy, Madonna and Ibiza’s resident celebrity Jade Jagger. This gargantuan club which is topped with a 25 meter high ceiling is situated on the road between Sant Antoni and Ibiza Town. Privilege is adorned with tall windows that afford gorgeous vistas of the island and the club also houses a swimming pool. Due to its large size, the club can be changed around easily, thus Privilege promises a brand new experience to its patrons nightly.
