Ibiza Nightlife and Strip
The whole island of Ibiza is party central, so you’ll find bars dotted all around the place. But if you want a more concentrated area of bars, San Antonio is the place to go! In San Antonio, where the party happens in Ibiza, the strip is called the West End. Situated in the centre of town, you’ll find the cheapest drinks and the most diverse clubs here. Here you will find more of a commercial music vibe, rather than the typical drum and bass or house music you find in the super clubs of Ibiza.
As you approach the strip, you’ll be propositioned by PR staff offering you the best drinks deal – top tip is to haggle and get the most for your money! Ibiza can be an expensive party island so most party goers pre-drink at the strip before heading to the main event of the night. A typical deal would be 15 euros for a glass of sex on the beach, 3 shots each, 2 double vodka and mixer and a jaeger bomb. Bargain!
Here’s a few bars to visit while you’re at the party island:
Ibiza Bar Guide
If you’re missing your dose of R’n’B music, Soul City is the place to go! Noted as the island’s original R’n’B club you’ll be sure to find the likes of classic Beyoncé and Drake tunes that you can throw some shapes to.
You can’t talk about Ibiza bars without talking about the Irish pub scene! A popular spot for British tourists, this Irish bar is the perfect spot for a friendly atmosphere, live music, and a good drink.
If you want a bit of a change to the usual Ibiza scene, Ground Zero is the bar to head to. Catering more to the alternative crowd, this is the bar you’re most likely to hear Indie classics and rock hits. So if you’re down for something a little different head on down to the hidden gem that is Ground Zero!
Ok so not technically in West End, but an Ibiza nightlife guide without Cafe Mambo is a guide incomplete! Situated on the beach at the end of the strip, this famous bar is the best place to see the famous Ibiza sunset. Enjoy a cocktail whilst watching the sky go from blue, to orange, to red all in the matter of minutes! Get there quick though, tables run out extremely quickly at this hotspot!
Ibiza Restaurant Guide
Rio is the ultimate all-rounder place to be! Categorised as a restaurant, bar, lounge, and club all at once, Rio Ibiza has something for everyone! With a large rooftop seating area, come here to simply enjoy a cocktail overlooking the marina or have a meal before you head out for your night!
An Indian paradise tucked away in the San Antonio centre, this scenic restaurant is the perfect way to curb your curry cravings! Sit outside amongst the traditional Indian decor and chose from the set menu for a curry, two naan breads, poppadoms, and a drink for only €14!

There’s a more affordable way to experience the Cafe Mambo sunset, just pop next door to the Mint Restaurant where deals can range from ‘a pizza and a cocktail for €20 to ‘€13.50 for three courses’. The menu is gorgeous and you will be wanting to instagram every moment of the dining experience.

Ibiza Daytime Activities
While we got your nights and most of your days sorted with the events package out in Ibiza, you still have a few spare hours of sunshine to fill your week to explore the gorgeous Balearic island!
San Antonio has a wide variety of watersports to choose from, with everything from jet skis, to inflatables, to parasailing, and more! Our personal favourite is Ocean Mania, an inflatable obstacle course just opposite Ocean Beach, this activity is sure to capture some hilarious moments amongst friends!
For most party goers, San Antonio is the resort to be. But if you want to explore the gorgeous historical side of Ibiza, Ibiza Town is where to go! With culture booming out of every street, this is the perfect place to go for a bit of local shopping, site seeing, and restaurant hunting! Buses run on a half hour schedule across all resorts, so it’s super easy to get to.
Hotel Pool Chilling
Sometimes the simplest activities can be the best. Spending your day by the pool is a great way to meet new people from your hotel and to relax and soak up the sun!
Ibiza Music Scene
Ibiza is famous for a lot of things, and their music scene variety is one of them! Ibiza Rocks Pool Parties vary in music genres with each event, so you’ll never run out of choice for a pool party suited to you! At major superclubs like Amnesia, you’ll find mostly electronic/D&B artists hitting the stage like Chase & Status who were there in 2018.
