Ibiza is home to some of
the world’s most advanced state-of-the-art
high-tech SUPER clubs and the best and most successful party promoters.
Clubbing in Ibiza is a fantastic experience.
CLUBS include clubs that started small in the old days, but grew into
today’s mega clubs:
Pacha (founded 1973 -
today world wide brand), Es Paradis
Amnesia (1976),UNDERGROUND (1982), Space (owned by Pepe Roselló since 1989),
DC10 (1990),Eden (founded in1999, before it was the
legendary venue KAOS), Privilege
(founded in 1993 & the world biggest club + former legendary club
but they were the establishers of the legendary ALL DAY & NIGHT partying
in Ibiza, that was initiated back in the late fifties and early sixties.
In those years Hippies, India travelers and other free spirits brought incredible music &
freedom to the island of Ibiza, when Spain was still under Franco’s
dictatorship and restrictions.
These Hippy islanders, true feel free & party experts, introduced a mix
of different electronic dance music styles and cultures, and showed the
locals how to transgress in celebrating true
music. Being pioneers in
free living they were involved in the genesis of the Ibiza Clubs, by introducing
new electronic music, originally
from Goa (India), that together with influences of
house, trance and
styles, successfully resulted in the
creation of Ibiza’s signature ambient music style, the Balearic House
Music, by famous island DJ Alfredo Fiorito.
Newer clubs, such as, IBIZA ROCKS, started their innovative LIVE MUSIC
EVENTS in 2005, at BENIMUSSA PARK (open
air venue Gala Night aka
’The Old Abandoned Zoo’), where animalistic debauchery of THE ZOO PROJECT

celebrities perform and party in their favorite clubs on Ibiza.
Today’s LIVE performances
of celebrity artists, as
well as upcoming musicians,
merely affirm the status of Ibiza’s frantic, hedonistic nightlife, that
made the Island world famous.
Every club in Ibiza offers
VIP treatment in one, or more,
of their special VIP Rooms, where
their guests will be pampered while enjoying their cocktails and watching the
party crowd from above.
Do keep in mind that most of the Ibiza clubs have a dress code which
means, men also are refused entry for being bare-chested... and another
thing....don’t bring your camera you will have to leave it in deposit,
for each club has its very own photographers.
advice: bring a full wallet, because visiting the Ibiza clubs is
certainly not cheap.
The prices of drinks are well above the 10 euro, and the admission
prices for the party nights vary between 30 and 90 euro.
Ibiza clubs together constitute one of the pillars on which the economy
of the tourist industry is based, and to represent their collective
interests, the seven biggest clubs initiated the ’Association of the
nightclubs of Ibiza’, that frequently clashes with the interests of
other hospitality entrepreneurs of Ibiza, who on their turn feel
restricted in their possibilities of organizing events and live music.
