You have all heard the rumours. You will have read up on the clubs, know the famous parties and have seen clips of party madness. But what are Ibiza clubs really like when visiting for the first time? What do you need to know before jetting in this summer?
Forget the Shoes
How many times have you been turned away from an establishment because those £100 trainers you are wearing are deemed not appropriate for the Alco-pop covered dance floor? In Ibiza, there are no such stringent dress codes. If you have a ticket, you will get in, more or less. If you want to mingle with the important people in the VIP lounges, try and dress to impress though, just make sure it is not foam party night…
Fill the Wallet
Ibiza is a Mecca for clubbers, home to some of the biggest, most famous clubs and superstar DJ’s. It is the place to be and people from all over the world descend on the small island for exactly these reasons. It is little wonder then that getting a ticket to the big nights is not exactly cheap. Whilst you could pay around 50 Euros for entrance to one of the big launch parties for example, it will be a once in a life time experience for most. Drinks can be expensive in the clubs too – take advantage of drink deals where possible to avoid two week clubbing holidays to Ibiza being cut short due to a lack of funds.
Do your Research
The fact that you are reading this gives me hope that you will actually do a bit of research into Ibiza and find the best place to stay, in terms of location and accommodation type. Contrary to what your mates may have said or what your imagination has dreamt up, the whole of Ibiza is not a party free-for-all. There are areas which are family friendly and not ideally suited for a big group of Brits abroad. San Antonio and Ibiza Town are the main hotspots for younger crowds and ideally suited for cheap Ibiza holidays.
Shake Off the Routine
Get around your mates house for some pre club drinks. Get a taxi the club for about 11pm, get a taxi home about 3am. Sound like a typical Saturday night in the UK? Forget about this routine when you are in Ibiza. Parties here go on from the afternoon until dawn in some clubs, with many people not even bothering to get to the clubs until 2am. Ibiza is a 24 hour party town – the last thing you want to do is get in the club at 10pm to find you are only people there – a clear sign that you are a first time Ibiza goer!
