Las Vegas might be stealing some of Ibiza’s shine but it still doesn’t measure up to the Balearic Island’s dance culture.




Technically it’s a hotel, not a club, so it’s not open past midnight, but Ushuaïa is one of the few places on the island where you can dance during the day.




Privilege is billed as the world’s biggest club and even has a Guinness World Record. True to its name, this club is all about extravagance with the main room containing an indoor pool and a suspended DJ booth under 25-meter-high ceilings.

As one of the oldest and most famous clubs on Ibiza, Amnesia regularly meets its 5,000-person capacity, which comes for its blend of techno, trance and house, in addition to the famous ice cannons.

If you want the quintessential clubbing experience, DC-10 is the place to go, having garnered a reputation for its hedonistic culture. Monday’s daytime Circo Loco parties are particularly famous for their revelry and underground mixes.

This year will be Carl Cox’s last for Music Is Revolution at Space (though he has hinted at the possibility of a new residency). The venue is known for its big production value and over-the-top opening/closing parties.



Café del Mar

Not a club, but an Ibiza institution nonetheless; no trip to the island is complete without sipping on a drink there and watching the sunset.
