Nightlife News for July 09
By Alexander Tichy
July is all about sun and dancing - so
how about both at the same time?
Platja d'en Bossa is once again chic!!
Between BORA BORA, which opens
in the early afternoon and invites you
to come dance, and the high-class
COCO BEACH, there are a slew of
new beach clubs that have opened
their doors this summer, and not one
of them caters to the typical Platja
d'en Bossa clientele. Most of them
are up at the higher end of life. The
party scene appears to have turned
its eye once again to living and having
a good time enjoying themselves
under the sun. For many this is
a logical and predictable reaction to
the ban on afterhours parties and the
crackdown on private finca parties.
Right next to the loud and booming
BORA BORA the DELANO BEACH
CLUB has opened its doors. It is not
the place you would expect a cool
and relaxed beach atmosphere.
Along with breakfast (until midafternoon)
the kitchen offers a varied
menu at attractive prices. The
price-performance ratio is perfect.
Along with healthy fruit smoothies
and other homemade blended goodies
they also serve up an incredible
Bloody Mary. The Beach Club is easy
to spot with its decor predominantly
white. Unusually, the beach loungers
can also be used free-of-charge. If
you get there at the right time you
have a chance to get one of the large
loungers on the beach. Get there
early enough and you may even
get one of the raised loungers!
DELANO BEACH CLUB is open daily
from 11am to 4am, which means
we can expect some hot nights from
this newbie. Nothing has yet been
announced, but anything is possible
with resident DJs that include Justin
Field (Underground) and Graham
Sahara (Pacha's Funky Room).
If you love techno, then you shouldn't
miss every Thursday in PRIVILEGE,
where the MONZA club gets its electronic
groove on. For their fifth anniversary
they are presenting the newest
from the world of electronica,
both house and techno. Their line up
is more avant-garde than ever before.
MONZA is once again putting the
pedal to the metal and presenting
never before seen live acts of contemporary
house and techno. Troy
Pierce, M.A.N.D.Y., Luciano, Steve
Bug, Paco Osuna, Marco Carola, Tobi
Neumann, Mathew Johnson and Audion
live are just a few of the names.
It also includes newcomers like Valentino
Kanzyani, Luna City Express
and Masomenos LIVE - and the DJ
duo from Romania Livio & Roby, as
well as local stars like Bruno Monteverde,
Nima Gorji, Hofer66 and Jose
de Divina. All of them contribute to
our "local underground culture" that
MONZA practically oozes. Happening
every Thursday in PRIVILEGE.
LA TROYA is back in AMNESIA.
Every Wednesday starting at midnight
the fanciest party series of the
summer gets going - with more than
60 dancers, animators, artists, very
special characters as well as countless
self-promoters that all make this
night a real spectacle. The exuberant
masquerade and the creations of
the decorators transform the techno
temple into a colourful circus tent.
Show is everything, and with LA
TROYA you really are offered everything.
The resident DJs Cesar De Melero
and Franco Mulero, along with
guest DJs like Tommy Vee, Mauro
Ferrucci and Gianluca de Tiberiis will
keep the music level up, up, up over
the whole season.
In times of crisis people develop
fresh ideas in order to accommodate
their guests a bit. BAMBUDDHA
GROVE on the road to Sant Joan,
for example, is fishing for guests
with a 25% resident discount. The
only thing you have to do is, during
the day, show your Residencia
at the office and get yourself a discount
card. BAMBUDDHA GROVE
is a unique location - even when
comparing worldwide. The atmosphere
is calm and warm. Open daily
from 8pm to 3am.
Chill is the name of the game every
Saturday in KUMHARAS in Port des
Torrent. MALTE's SONIK GARDEN begins about one and a half hours
before sunset, which you can also
thoroughly enjoy from KUMHARAS.
The establishment is located
right by the water and with its rustic
watchtower and offbeat architecture
has plenty of atmosphere.
The restaurant area entices visitors with special decoration
in the form of a larger than life Shiva and a dragon
seat. You can still find the real spirit of Ibiza here.
This is a great alternative to touristy Sant Antoni with
Cafe del Mar and the other locations. KUMHARAS is
an oasis in the middle of the hectic summer hustle
The evenings are accentuated by a variety
of options, including artists, live music with Raul, Flamenco
Querencia and Peter of DEEP DIVE CORPORATION,
not to mention guest DJs like Ganga, Pathaan
and Mixmaster Morris. The light and laser dance performance
and fire jugglers round out the programme
after sunset. KUMHARAS is open every day from 6pm
until late into the night.
The popular OCEAN DRIVE hotel in Marina Botafoch,
which has established itself as one of the favourite places
to stay for DJs, recently renovated their rooms to the Deluxe
category. Everything was completely newly outfitted
with the most modern technology, high-class interior
and exclusive materials. Staying open all year round and
with breakfast until 4pm were just the first of many innovations
that have helped set this hotel apart from the
rest. For this summer they've signed a contract with the
GUARANA BEACH CLUB in Ses Salines that will forge
new paths in beach club quality for both establishments.
OCEAN DRIVE is planning its own car service, events,
apres beach parties and other events on the beach of Ses
Salines to create even more highlights for the season.
