Summer is finally here and that means another momentous season awaits in Ibiza. Whether you’re looking to partake in the White Isle’s legendary parties or sample the sizzling dining scene. We pick our favorite spots on the Balearic Island to inspire your sunny escape.
Weather getting you down? Not too late to jet-down to ‘beefa and we’ve done this weekend’s planning. Mandatory Ibiza itinerary as follows.
WHERE TO GO – NIGHT OUT
Wednesday, Paradise at DC-10
There are opening parties, and then there are opening parties: Jamie Jones’ Paradise’s 2019 kickoff is the latter. Hosted at DC-10, revelers get an incomparable vantage point of planes’ descent into the white isle. The Martinez Brothers are gearing up for one of their B2B sets with the main man himself. Then there’s the juxtaposition of Adam Beyer’s dark and stark beats to Hot Creations’ Infinity Ink live set. You can expect some Latin rhythms thrown in by Flashmob and Ilario Alicante, so along with Andrea Oliva and Richy Ahmed, there’s something for everyone.
Thursday 13th June: Pacha’s Music On & Cassy all night long
Double-up Music On: Catch some rays at Destino Pacha for Hot Since 82, followed by a night not for the faint of heart at Pacha with Marco Carola along with a must-see Cassy. “Legend” gets thrown around whenever someone sorts out your suite’s air conditioning, whereas Cassy’s one that’s truly earned the moniker.
Friday 14th June: Hï Ibiza’s F*** Me, I’m Famous
Perhaps you’ve heard of David Guetta? Maybe a track or two’s made its way into a party playlist? How about his Jack Back alias, then? Didn’t think so. There’s also Idris Elba back to his DJ roots before conquering your Netflix queue. If you ever went to Space, you’ll want to boomerang back into its Hï incarnation for this Friday Fiesta. The building’s got decades of beats beneath and plenty of new parties to write home about.
Saturday 15th June: Ushuaïa’s ANTS
The Instagramable venue and ANTS dancers mixed with minimal basslines make for a solid Saturday whether you’re winding down your visit in a big way or gearing it up with a bang. You know there’ll be streamers and CO2 blasts in between beats by Camelphat, Kölsch, and the endless energy from SKREAM.
Sunday 16th June: Blue Marlin Ibiza’s Cocoon – Pete Tong Sessions
After bringing in legendary British dance duo Underworld to the island to kick off the season at UshuaÏa Ibiza, Sven Väth is in with yet another very special event as BBC Radio 1 royalty Pete Tong joins him at Blue Marlin for a knock-out fix of stellar tunes at one of the island’s best beachside venues.
WHERE TO GO – EATS & DRINKS
IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar
To fuel up in between, “it’s always worth trying at least one dish that you never had before” at IZAKAYA, a South American-influenced Japanese share plates spot.
The Butcher Ibiza
Amsterdam’s legendary burger joint has landed on the island to satisfy your carnivore cravings. Holland’s hip burger bar is serving top-quality burgers, prepared on the spot using only the freshest ingredients.
The butcher is a full-service concept open daily from 13:00 until 7:00. Whether you crave a late breakfast, a tasty lunch, a hearty dinner or a midnight snack, the butcher is the place to be.
