Pyramid – The Last One at Amnesia Ibiza

7pm – Friday December 30, 2022

For those looking to start the New Year’s Eve celebrations early – and let’s face it, what else is there to do on the Friday night before the main event? – global superclub Amnesia Ibiza throws open its doors at 7pm for a very special edition of Pyramid Ibiza, dubbed – quite appropriately – The Last One. The community-focused party’s concept is to appreciate the past, live in the present and dance into the future and there couldn’t be a better time than right now to get involved. On the TerrazaCaal, Cuartero, Enzo Siragusa, Mar-T, Sidney Charles and 2Vilas will keep you dancing until the early hours while in the Main Room, it’s over to Andres Campo, Deborah De Luca, Luca Donzelli and Stella Bossi. Tickets and VIP tables are still available, and you can also purchase combo tickets that include entry to Elrow on New Year’s Day but be quick!

Cabaret Dinner + Toy Room at Lío Ibiza

8pm – Saturday December 31, 2022

This New Year’s Eve, Lío Ibiza throws a one-night-only cabaret event to ring in the new year on the Marina. The glitz and glamour of the dancers and performers, the high-end cuisine, the sparkle, the surprises – it’s Lío Ibiza, just as you know and love it in the summer months. After the dinner and show, the countdown to midnight will be done Spanish style with 12 lucky grapes and then the dance floor opens to one and all, with global brand Toy Room – along with its famous life-sized teddy mascot Frank and DJ Jon Rocca – taking over from midnight. With a view across the port to the iconic skyline of Dalt Vila, there’s no better dancefloor for watching the fireworks!

Hotmanay New Year’s Eve Special at Paradise Lost

On New Year’s Eve, the Sa Penya hotspot opens its doors from 9pm and invites you and your pals to grab a cosy Chesterfield or an alfresco table as you’re treated to an end-of-year Hotmanay party. No, that’s not a typo – it’s Hogmanay with a twist, thanks to Ibiza’s hottest DJs Camilo Miranda and DJ Dribbler, who’ll be serving up your soundtrack until very, very late indeed. Order a mug of Captain Jimmy’s Hot Winter Grog to get yourself into the festive spirit and settle in for a night of fine cocktails, great music and plenty of good banter – plus, there’s a free glass of bubbles for everyone at midnight!
