Amnesia Nightclub Ibiza

Amnesia is one of the largest and oldest clubs on Ibiza. 5000 people can fit inside any given night. It has been voted best global club by IDMA multiple times (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011) and it originally opened back in the 70s.

The club features two rooms; the main room and the terrace. The terrace was originally outdoors but had to close the roof in the late 90s because of noise complaints from the neighbors. The main room is a traditional square room with a second level balcony overlooking the main dance floor. The cryo or ice cannons are a famous feature in the main room blasting cool air at regular intervals making clubbers scramble for their sunglasses on the dancefloor.

Expect top DJs to man the decks almost every night with an amazing sound system. Depending on the night, you might hear any kind of electronic dance music. The club generally goes to 5 AM. On big nights it is not unusual for them to go to noon the next day.

Amnesia has free shuttles to get to the club from Playa den bossa and there are also disco buses that will take you to the club. A taxi ride cost between 10 and 15 dollars from either San Antonio, Ibiza Town, or Playa d’en Bossa. The bigger nights such as Cocoon or Cream will cost up towards 40 euro while the other nights might be 10-20 euros. Drinks are very expensive as most places on Ibiza. Expect to pay around 15 euros for a drink or water bottle.
