Ibiza clubs: Blue Marlin Ibiza – King of the beach clubs
Glitzy, glam and everything you’ve ever heard about Ibiza’s VIP scene and more, the original Blue Marlin Ibiza – located on the pebbly shores of south coast hotspot Cala Jondal – is the undisputed king of Ibiza’s beach club scene.
Being one of the most fashionable and entertaining beach lounge clubs in the world, it’s always worth arriving early to make the most of the day-to-night, open-air experience at Blue Marlin. With beats floating over the airwaves by day, toes start tapping on sunbeds and the beach before the restaurant even opens its chic terrace for lunch.
As the day gets hotter, the music gets louder and the party vibe on the terrace heats up, requiring soft sprinklers of water to cool down the crowds around the edges! Slowly but surely, the first dancers creep in front of the booth and before you know it, the party has started. Around sunset is prime time at Blue Marlin, a veritable fashion show with the who’s who of Ibiza and the international jetset strutting their stuff on the terrace.
Increasingly becoming known as house music party destination, day clubbers can see some of the world’s best DJs gracing the decks throughout summer. After dancing all day, head indoors to the soundproofed mini-club where the party continues until dawn, leaving you just enough time to catch a wink of sleep before doing it all over again…
On Mondays throughout July and August, Blue Marlin Ibiza hosts a deep house party featuring local favourite Eli Rojas and friends. Tuesdays see long-term Ibiza resident DJs Tom Crane and Andy Baxter take over, bringing more local flair to the international hotspot. Keep your eyes peeled for some special one-off pop-ups, including Richie Hawtin’s ENTER.Sake on August 3, 2017.
Speaking of pop-ups, every Friday throughout the summer season, the iconic beach club hosts Pop You Up, a tribute to contemporary and old school house music with a focus on pop art and street art, with special guest DJs on rotation each week. The perfect day-to-night dance floor!
On selected Saturdays throughout July and August, much-loved Ibiza DJ Jean Claude Ades adds an extra residency to his list, now getting behind the decks at Blue Marlin Ibiza. Promising to deliver productions of exclusive, avant-garde, energetic sounds, it’s a move set to catapult Jean Claude, and the Be Crazy! brand, further into the limelight, on Ibiza’s most famous beach club stage.
2017 also sees the iconic beach club join forces with one of the island’s most legendary DJs for an all-new Sunday night residency in 2017. Pete Tong Sessions take place on selected weekends up until September, with some of the hottest names in dance music joining him for this new day-to-night extravaganza.
