The all-singing, all-dancing star of Marina Botafoch, Lío Ibiza is multiple venues all rolled into one. It’s where world-class food meets cabaret meets Ibiza entertainment, offering an immersive experience right next to the water that attracts a cosmopolitan, jet-set crowd, who’ve usually just hopped off a nearby super yacht, or possibly a private jet. With glittering views of Dalt Vila across the water and a prime position within the marina surrounded by glitzy bars, restaurants and boutiques, it sets the bar for premium partying on the island.
Located just a 15-minute walk from the centre of Ibiza town, Lío Ibiza is easily accessible on foot. Though judging by the size of the heels that most of the crowd wear, we suspect that’s not how the majority travel. Nevertheless, once you arrive, it’s all about a different kind of journey. One that involves delicious gastronomy served with signature cocktails and a side of extroverted performance. Because that’s the speciality at this Ibiza entertainment venue — every single one of the senses is tickled into life with a tantalising display for the eyes, ears, nose and mouth.
Wildly dazzling cabaret lies at the heart of nights spent at Lío Ibiza. From dancers, singers, acrobats and musicians, even the wait staff are performers here, acting out little vignettes as they deliver both food and drama to the table. Meanwhile, circus skills are showcased overhead and singers belt out classics on stage — it’s a completely immersive Ibiza entertainment experience that often ends with everyone standing up to dance, sometimes even on the tables. It’s dining like you’ve never seen before and the enthusiasm is incredibly infectious.
After dinner, the fun continues as tables are cleared and Lío Ibiza transforms into an Ibiza club space. Sultry tunes are accompanied by performances from even sultrier burlesque dancers and provided on a weekly basis by internationally acclaimed artists like Sebastian Gamboa who returns with his Vintage party, Themba, Kaz James, and Nicolas Sasson, who brings Bâzâr to the venue on Thursdays this summer. It’s all very bright, beautiful and shiny. Dress accordingly or deeply regret it.
