Ibiza is famous all over the world as the party island. In summer, the big nightclubs offer sessions by the world’s most famous DJs and thousands of clubbers flock to the island to enjoy them. However, it is also possible to party in Ibiza in winter. And what’s more, it has a few advantages. Obviously, when you go out to dance or have a drink in winter you’ll find a very different atmosphere from the summer. A quieter crowd, made up mostly of residents, but with very stimulating proposals, much lower prices and without the queues and fear of overcrowding.
One of the liveliest spots in winter is undoubtedly Ibiza town. To start the night, a good option is to have a drink in the Plaza del Parque, a favourite meeting point for Ibizans, with plenty of restaurants and terraces (don’t worry, they all have heaters).
Where to go out in Ibiza?
The narrow streets of La Marina, the port area, are full of bars and pubs. Many of them close in winter, as most of them are geared towards tourists, but there are some legendary ones like the DeMiedo bar that are still open.
Here you will also find Lolas Club, which is open in winter from Thursday to Saturday from 10pm to 5am. Nearby is Pasajes Felipe II, where you’ll find Malanga Café Ibiza, a lively venue dedicated to all kinds of black music that is open Thursdays to Saturdays (and the eve of public holidays) from 11pm to 6am. On Thursdays they have an early jam session.
