11pm – Ibiza Old Town and Dalt Vila
This is a good time to experience Ibiza’s picturesque old town, as well as the aged castle fort of Dalt Vila. At 11pm, the little hippie shops are still open and the local bars will just be getting busy. It’s a vibrant time, brimming with pre-club anticipation, when you can roam around the narrow, dimly-lit streets of Dalt Vila feeling wonderfully civilised and vaguely romantic, without feeling as though you need to roll with a definite plan.
Midnight - Paradise Lost
Nobody drinks at the port bars anymore. And neither should you. Instead, veer off from the waterline and head up into the Old Town. Grab a bean bag at Paradise Lost, where the cocktails are far cheaper and far superior to any of the concoctions being served up along the port. Not to mention the fact that there’s also a tangible vibrancy about the local folk who like hang here.
1am - Start the Night at Pacha
The majority of Ibiza’s major superclubs demand full session action. Pacha, on the other hand, offers clubbers the chance to remain slightly more reserved. The upstairs terrace, complete with lounge seating, is a great place to start the night. If you’re in the mood for a full-bore stomp, you can always head downstairs to the dancefloor to engage Solomun, Maceo Plex or Hot Since 82. However, if you’re in the mood to take it easy, Pacha’s smaller rooms provide a stylish yet bohemian meeting place to hook up with friends over a glass of cava before heading off into the night.
