As we enter the Spring season here on the island, with the beautiful wild flowers and Almond blossom in full Bloom, many of Ibiza’s famous Clubs will be starting to look at their summer schedules and think about the dates for their Opening parties in May and June. With over 7 super clubs on the island, the Opening Party months are very busy in Ibiza
As with tradition on the island, the first club to open its doors for the summer season, is always the family owned and beautiful Es Paradis, the famous and classically designed pyramid shaped glass roofed club, will kick off its Ibiza 2016 summer season on Saturday May 21st 2016. The Es Paradis Opening party, signals the official opening of the clubbing season here in Ibiza and it starts to remind us to get ready for the busy summer months ahead.
One of the biggest Ibiza Opening parties, is the famous Space Opening party, which takes place in Playa Den Bossa every year, with thousands of people traveling from Europe and America to visit the club for some of the finest DJ’s in the world. This summer in Ibiza, the Space Opening Party will be held on, Sunday, May 29th and it is a 24 hour party affair, so make sure to be well prepared for the festivities.
Ushuaia will also have its Opening party that weekend. Just across from Space, the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel is a five star luxury beach hotel with a large outdoor area for dancing, complete with three fine dining restaurants, a full-service cocktail bar, two outdoor pools and even a spa. Because it’s technically a hotel and not a club, Ushuaia is a rare place revellers can (legally) dance during daylight hours. The dance floor is ordinarily open from morning to midnight.
The underground DC10 which is oponed the day after the Space Opening party is already etched firmly into the history books of dance music culture, the small farmhouse at the end of the airport runway in Ibiza has become one of the best known clubbing destinations on the planet, principally due to the hedonistic and no holds barred afterhour sessions of Monday daytime party Circo Loco.
Pacha will officially open for the summer season with the David Guetta FMIF party at the much loved Ibicenco club in Ibiza town. The 3000-capacity venue has five different rooms: the large Main Room for house and techno, the Funky Room for more disco flavours, the Roof Terrace for lounge and chillout, and downstairs features Sweet Pacha for retro pop and the Global Room—the first main room back when Pacha opened in 1973
On May 14th and in a change to recent years, Amnesia will hold its Opening party. Amnesia features two large rooms, one with an air-conditioned upstairs VIP lounge and a dance floor lined by infamous cooling "ice cannons," as well as an enclosed greenhouse terrace "sunrise dance floor" that becomes flooded with rays as the sun rises in the morning.
And, on the 27th of May we will have the opening party of Privilege, impossible to miss, the world’s largest club, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. With 25 metre-high ceilings and an indoor pool in the main room, plus a stage with erotic dancers, it’s quite literally a spectacle of a nightclub. Privilege also features a multi-level chillout area with garden, a dome with views of the island, the Coco Loco room and a Mediterranean restaurant.
