Location: Ibiza, Spain
Holding a spot in the Top 100 Clubs poll for over a decade, the home of the famous red cherries, Pacha, returns for another year. The team at Pacha say the club — which is designed to look like an Ibiza farmhouse and faces the Old Town — has “grown and evolved in tandem with the island” since opening its doors in 1973.
Holding 3,000 clubbers, and offering both VIP and general admission experiences, Pacha has undergone major renovations in recent years to introduce even more “diaphanous” dancefloor space and enhanced AV. The club’s soundsystem is d&b audiotechnik, and it features 37 panels of kinetic-led video installation.
Spread across four rooms, plus an outdoor garden and terrace which serves ice cream well into the night, Pacha is a club that puts the experience first. Last season, the club welcomed artists from Bedouin and Calvin Harris to Marco Carola and Solomun, and masked house purveyor Claptone, who’s revealed his enchanted Masquerade concept heads back to the club for another season this year.
Also in 2019, the club’s longest-standing residency, Flower Power, continued to nod to the club’s ‘70s roots, and nights like Cocoon and Dixon’s Transmoderna made last season one of the most pivotal and diverse in Pacha’s history.
