Pikes presents Paco Fernandez at Pamelas

8pm – Tuesday July 20, 2021
When it comes to live music in Ibiza, Flamenco legend Paco Fernandez is every bit as much of an icon as the venue he’s performing in this Tuesday: the one and only Pikes Ibiza. Famous for his own form of Flamenco fusion, which includes amazing musicians, fantastic dancers and a live DJ, the talented guitarist has been playing at Pikes since it opened in the early 80s and you won’t find a more authentic and unique dinner-and-a-show combo than this. As much a part of the venue’s heritage as he is its evolution, Pikes presents six Paco Fernandez shows in its candy pink Pamelas restaurant this season – each and every show is a sell-out so be sure to make a reservation quickly!

The Brothers Grim at Hostal La Torre

7pm – Wednesday July 21, 2021
The sunset just seems to get even more and more spectacular as the summer goes on, with psychedelic skies whirling around the blazing golden ball of sun as it melts into the sea each night. This Wednesday, the sunset is made magical by the sounds of The Brothers Grim, who return to La Torre Ibiza on the west coast of Ibiza – home to the most authentic Balearic soundtracks and truly sensational sunset views. With candlelit tables and chairs scattered from the alfresco terrace all the way down the rugged cliffside, it captures the magic of Ibiza’s bygone days and evokes the essence of Ibiza. Just add cocktails, great food and good friends – there’s nothing Grim about it except perhaps those DJs!
