Whoever said size doesn’t matter wasn’t trying to fit 10,000 excited clubbers into one Ibiza nightclub! Impossible to miss, the world’s largest club – and that’s official, according to the Guinness Book of World Records – Privilege, lights up like a giant space station on a hillside in San Rafael.
With a fascinating Ibiza clubbing history, Privilege started as a simple community swimming pool (which still stands in the main room) back in the ‘70s, then in the ‘80s became the legendary Ku (hailed as the European Studio 54) attracting the island’s first hedonistic crowds and including guests like Freddie Mercury singing Barcelona and Grace Jones dancing naked in the rain.
In 2017, the party line-up at Privilege Ibiza has had a revamp, now including mammoth line-ups such as Resistance – featuring the inimitable combo of Sasha and Digweed – and Pure Carl Cox on Tuesday nights. Life and Death’s Afterlife concept takes over Thursday nights while Ale Zuber’s I Am A Rich Bitch reggae-ton party ontinues its successful residency on Fridays. Saturdays are all about the island’s most spectacular gay-friendly night, Supermartxé while Coyu’s Suara picks up the Sunday slot.
Scattered around the venue there are 14 bars, two exclusive VIP zones on the upper levels, the legendary Coco Loco room and two open-air chill out areas; a magnificent garden atrium and an elevated lounge under the symbolic dome, with unforgettable sunrise sets and unreal moments in Vista Club as the sun begins to peak through Ibiza’s beautiful morning skies. Sometimes, it seems, bigger really is better.
