While most people enjoy hanging out at the beach and taking advantage of the many available water activities during their stay on Spain's incredible island of Ibiza, there's a whole other world waiting for you when the sun goes down. Ibiza is quite literally famous for its nightlife scene, and you'll find something wonderful whether you're looking for a relaxing way to unwind, a raging party scene or a place to dance until the morning sun shows itself. These are just a few of Ibiza's most popular clubs and options for evening entertainment.
In Ibiza Town
This is a wonderful spot for a relaxing evening out, and S'Escalinata offers both dining and drinks. A friendly staff awaits, and you'll find something a little different with the giant outdoor beanbag chairs and low tables. It's a perfect way to enjoy your meal or just a drink while visiting with other patrons and people watching. Tasty menu items include tapas, sandwiches and salads, but the drinks are the real star of the show. You'll find a full bar with exceptional fresh-fruit cocktails, champagne, a variety of beers and wines and several specialty drinks, which include the Popayan, the Apple Mood and the Sake Mule.
When dancing all night is one of your requirements for a good time, you'll find what you want at amazing Pacha. This popular Ibiza nightclub offers five separate sections that are dedicated to different genres of music so that everyone may sample them all or enjoy their favorite.
