In the summer months, Ibiza is Europe’s premier party destination. Young people from all over the world throng discotheques staffed by brand name DJ’s, arriving between midnight and 2am and partying until well after the sun rises over the Mediterranean. Jazz clubs, lounge bars, and mellower nightspots attract the older crowd.  Most clubs are only open during the high season.

Ibiza Nightlife

Café del Mar

Café del Mar is perfectly situated on Sant Antoni’s famed Sunset Strip – an area where the young gather each evening to enjoy the sight of the sun dropping into the sea. Enjoy a pre-dinner pitcher of sangria on their beachside terrace.

Es Paradís

One of the island’s “musts” for the summer clubbers, this mega-disco attracts a largely British crowd and is, not surprisingly, served by British DJs.  Bring a bathing suit: at dawn, the sprinklers open up to drench the overheated dancers.

This Brazilian-themed nightclub is frequented by a slightly older crowd and is famed for its all-night parties. There is a separate cocktail lounge which serves powerful mojitos, caipirinhas, and daiquiris.

Las Dalias

Ibiza’s hippie heritage lives on in this converted roadside tavern. Counterculture types, jet-setters, and even the occasional family, frequent its many areas (there is a live music venue, several bars, a Morocco tea tent, a garden, and two restaurants).

The island’s premier club for some 35 years is also one of Europe’s most famous discotheques. Different rooms have different rhythms (house, techno, Latin, soul, hip-hop); the roof-top terrace is the appointed chill-out zone.

Calling this wildly popular spot a “nightclub” is a bit of a misnomer as the DJs here don’t crank up until 8 a.m., catching the crowds as they disperse from the clubs shutting down everywhere else.  Closed October-early-June.
