Ibiza Map Of Interest

Posted by Gary on Wednesday 19 December 2007

I have now added another page which has a map of Ibiza and places of interest. It started with a test to see if what i had in mind would work and it does so ill leave it be. With time i will add to the map with more than just the clubs and bars. I’m not sure how far i should go with it but for now ill keep adding to it. With time i will try and add official links to the relevant places if they have websites and i will also try and add links to Youtube video’s of the places in the description. Keep checking back cause it will keep changing and getting better. If you want to take a look then check out the Ibiza map of interest.

NYE In Ibiza

Posted by Gary on Wednesday 19 December 2007

Following on from my post yesterday about CircoLoco New Years Day 2008, i have been looking round to see what else is on in Ibiza this new year. There were originally plans for Amnesia to be open on the 31st of December but these have since been shelved because from what i believe, they are refurbishing the terrace. However there are still more nights on the island to go to if you are making your way over.

The First night is one you expect to be open, Pacha are open on NYE and they have Kurd Maverick and Angel Linde. Standard tickets for this are €35. Also connected with Pacha this NYE is Pukka Up. Pukka Up are organising a two day trip to Ibiza on a plane banging out music all the way over! you get entry to pacha, entry to a pukka up after party and your accommodation for £399.

Also open on new year’s eve is Underground. There is no confirmation on the lineup and their official website has no lineup either. However this club has been open all winter so its expected to be really busy for NYE.

No More After Hours In Ibiza

Posted by Gary on Monday 17 December 2007

The Town hall of San Jose Ibiza have passed new legislation that will stop bars and clubs opening first thing in the morning. This means that you will no longer be able to roll from one club to another like many people have done in the past. Clubs like Space and DC10 will no longer be able to open at the times they have done in the past. The legislation states that no bar or club playing music can open before 12 noon. That means that all clubs must be closed for a minimum of 6 hours a day.

For allot of people this may not be a problem as many people say the after parties don’t really get going till after that time anyway. The biggest impact this law will have will probably be on Space as the club has built itself on parties in the morning and through the day, Not to mention one of the most popular events on the island ‘Sundays at space’ which was famed for being open for 22 hours straight.

They say this has been done to try and stop people coming out of the clubs (in various states) and mingling with families and other non clubbing tourists.

For an update on this story check out my post Ibiza Club Opening Times Decided
