Ibiza's Halloween Fiesta: The Night of the Shadows at Club Chinois
Even as summer fades, Ibiza's love for a party never wanes.
As October comes to an end, those left on the White Isle (and those flying in especially for the occasion) don our best outfits, eagerly awaiting the supernatural allure of Halloween. On this island, fancy dress is more than tradition – it's a compulsion, a pre-requisite, a rite of passage into a night of spooky antics.
There are tonnes of Halloween parties on the island this year, but none have been announced as quite as scary as The Night of the Shadows at Club Chinois.
Marina Botafoch's opulent nightclub, Club Chinois, is setting the stage for an event poised to eclipse all others, promising a realm where past elegance meets the present's mystique.
At the helm of the evening is the outstanding Franky Wah, a name echoing across Club Chinois's halls all through 2023 due to his stand-out Sunday night residency.
With timeless tracks like "Cry No More" and "Get Me High" under his belt, Franky is ready to take us on a musical journey into November.
Located in the heart of Marina Botafoch, Club Chinois encapsulates Ibiza's blend of luxury and top-class nightlife.
An offspring of London’s iconic Park Chinois, the venue, designed by Parisian genius Laleh Assefi, seamlessly integrates 1930s glamor with the spirited charm of Ibiza.
Since opening in 2022, Club Chinois has hosted industry greats, filling its roster with the likes of Ida Engberg, Luciano, Black Coffee, and more, each echoing its ethos of excellence and celebration.
We’re not 100% sure what Club Chinois has up its sleeve for Halloween, but we can guarantee that the 360-degree visuals will be used well throughout the night, the music will be incredible and the crowd will be thirsty for blood. Well, it is Halloween after all!
