Trip Closing Party Part 2 at Club Chinois - the final night of 2023.
You can ask anyone and they will all tell you the same thing. The summer of 2023 was most definitely one for the history books, and even though the season gets longer and longer every year, everything that’s good must eventually come to an end.
On Saturday, November 4, Club Chinois is preparing for its grand curtain call. Following the first installment of the closing party on October 28, Club Chinois invites you once again to lose yourself in the mesmerizing world of Trip.
Doors open at 11:45pm, with the party crafted by the visionary Johannes Goller running all the way through until 5:45am.
Leading the lineup is a name synonymous with avant-garde techno: Ricardo Villalobos. His intricate rhythms and unparalleled mixes have crowned him a legend in the dance music realm.
Alongside him on the bill, Sonja Moonear steps up to bat. Known for her enchanting and fresh sounds, Moonear will add layers of deep beats that promise to keep the dance floor in a trance.
Completing the lineup is Tuccillo, who will be bringing some serious energy to the Marina Botafoch club.
Since its inception in 2022, Club Chinois, ushered in by Island Hospitality, has seamlessly blended old-world luxury with the bohemian spirit of Ibiza. With plush interiors and a sophisticated ambiance, it's the perfect backdrop for some autumn/winter revelry.
The club's visuals, inspired by artistic giants such as Dali and Gaudi, add to the surreal atmosphere, making every 'Trip' a deep dive into a dreamy, psychedelic realm.
Beyond the spectacular music and hypnotic visuals, this event is a celebration of 5 months of incredible parties at Club Chinois.
It's a reflection of the journey through the summer, culminating in a night that promises pure, unfiltered Ibiza magic.
The camaraderie, the shared moments on the dance floor, and the memories created under that giant disco ball - it all comes to this.
If you’ve been to a Trip party in 2023, you know that it will not disappoint. Remember, Club Chinois isn’t just any club; it’s a testament to Ibiza’s rich clubbing history and its ever-evolving future.
