Circoloco Opening at DC-10

5pm – Monday October 18, 2021
If you’re reading this, you’re probably not at DC-10 right now. And if you are… why on earth are you checking your phone? The island’s most notorious club hosts another Circoloco party today – the second event in the three-part series that wraps up on Monday October 25, 2021. Tickets are only available on the door, so it’s first come, first served and you’ll need to arrive early, plus show a vaccination certificate or negative PCR test to guarantee entry. Today’s party features an all-star line-up including Tania Vulcano, Apollonia, Gerd Janson, Haai, Loco Dice, The Martinez Brothers, Seth Troxler and many more. Open from 5pm to 5am, if last week was anything to go by this event is set to be another roadblock.

Miso Hungry at Bambuddha

8pm – Tuesday October 19 & Wednesday October 20, 2021
One of the island’s longest running restaurant institutions, Bambuddha Ibiza is a must-visit destination for holidaymakers and island residents alike. And while the season is winding down, there are still a couple of weeks left to enjoy the trademarked MediterrAsian cuisine – created using as much local and seasonal produce as possible, in addition to organic meat and ethically farmed fish, it’s a true fusion if ever there was one. On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, Bambuddha hosts its popular Miso Hungry event, with an all-you-can-eat menu served directly to your table for just 42€ per person and 24€ for children up to 12 years of age. Island residents also receive a 20% discount at the bar and restaurant with proof of residency.

Graham Sahara at Paradise Lost

6pm – Wednesday October 13, 2021
The summer might have come to an end but that doesn’t mean the party has to stop! Ibiza’s favourite drinking den, Paradise Lost, welcomes one and all to take a seat on the terrace or get cosy on the snug sofas indoors as you settle in for a night of fine cocktails, great music and plenty of good banter in the gypsy quarter of Sa Penya. Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 9pm until 3am, you’ll be treated to music from some of Ibiza’s finest resident DJs and visiting guests on rotation (although this Wednesday the bar is closed due to a special occasion, it’s business as usual every other night). This week’s line-up includes the island’s most loved ginger ninja, Graham Sahara, serving up beats on Friday night followed by Jean Cedric on Saturday. The off-season is when the action really heats up in this eclectic hotspot – you never know who you’ll meet!

Ibiza Talents at Lío Ibiza

11pm – Friday October 22, 2021
Lío Ibiza is another venue that’s now made the switch into winter mode, and while the cabaret performers have packed up their sequins, glitter and feathers for the season, the dance floor is now officially open. Every Friday night, local record label and events company Ibiza Talents takes over the Marina Ibiza venue, curating line-ups featuring the finest local DJs and performers from 11pm. With a view across the port to the iconic skyline of Dalt Vila, there’s no better dance floor for partying in Ibiza in the off-season and after more than 18 months spent without dancing in Ibiza, you can bet it will be a popular haunt.
