Top 5 high-end nightlife destinations in Ibiza

With a reputation as one of the world’s foremost party destinations, it’s no wonder that Ibiza boasts some of the most fantastic, talked-about nightclubs around. In fact, some of the island’s most popular clubs have won awards and attract not just international party-goers, but celebrity party-goers as well – not to mention some of the most famous DJs on the club circuit. If you’re thinking of checking out Ibiza’s nightlife, here are some particularly high-class locations you may want to visit:

Space

An award-winning spot beloved by patrons and DJs alike, Space is quite simply on a whole other level of the clubbing experience. Located in the outskirts of Ibiza Town and close to the airport, Space has a distinctive open terrace – you don’t exactly have to worry about bothering the neighbours! While Sunday nights are the most popular nights of the week, the clubbing season sees more than 20,000 clubbers all looking to get in on the action – fitting for a club whose opening is seen as the start of said clubbing season. As you might expect, it’s a big draw for big-name acts like The Chemical Brothers and Simian Mobile Disco.

Privilege

Purportedly containing the biggest dancefloor in the world – and definitely housing superstar DJ Tiesto as a headliner – Privilege is a must-stop for anyone looking for a characteristic aspect of Ibiza’s nightlife. Famous former hosts have included no less than P. Diddy, Jade Jagger, and Madonna – and while the club is able to host over 8,000  occupants at once, its 25 metre-high ceiling and tall windows offering picturesque views of surrounding Ibiza will ensure you never feel cramped. Plus, it’s got a swimming pool.

Pacha

If you’re looking to spend a night out in true VIP style, Club Pacha should be at the top of your list. A veritable institution on the Ibiza nightclub scene, Pacha was first established on a beach in Stiges in 1967 before opening in Ibiza on 1973 – and such was its popularity that it turned into a franchise, with Pacha clubs popping up in London, New York, and Buenos Aires. Former DJs – and frequent current visitors – include no less than Peter Tong and David Morales. Come here for a legendary night out.

Es Paradis Terrenal

More commonly known as Es Paradis, this club is located in a large pyramid-shaped building, the inside of which is characterised by its spectacular décor and architecture – and the crazy, festive atmosphere. As one of the island’s oldest clubs, a beloved rite of passage for those new to Ibiza is Es Paradis’s infamous water party (or the Fiesta Del Agua). So if you’re headed there, don’t forget to bring along something waterproof! But don’t just turn up in your swimming gear or you won’t be let in.

Amnesia

Perhaps ironically named, because a night at Amnesia is not a night you’ll soon forget, this particular Ibiza locale has won the Best Global Club award three times. Nights here don’t really get stated until about midnight, but parties run all the way until dawn. Most importantly, Amnesia plays host to the infamous Cream parties – pretty much a ritual for standard Ibiza clubbers, and an amazing experience for anyone else.

If all this sounds tempting, you should definitely make plans to hit Ibiza up this summer – just rent a villa, spend your days by the beach and your nights out on the town. What could be better? If you’ve been to Ibiza before, share your experiences and any other clubs you’ve been to in the comments!

    Thanks for this great post!

    Space is a great club, but I think many people just end up standing outside. Even if you do get in it’s so packed in there that you can’t even move around really. Great if you’re a sheep!

    You’re right on not feeling as cramped in Privilege. The windows there sure help, not to mention the huge dance floor. Still waiting to see Jade Jagger, however.

    Amnesia is usually the spot to end the night at, or at least the memories of the night. Still, it seems that most of the time it’s walking through the smaller bars just to get a few last drinks, and some breathing room!
