Solomun + LIVE Closing Party | Destino Ibiza | Thursday, August 25
Miaden Solomun is one of the most admired artists on the island and hosts the busiest party under the two cherries on a Sunday night. The outdoor variation of the Solomun + 1 residency at Pacha—in which Solomun plays with just one guest during the party (culminating with a back-to-back)—comes to an end this Thursday at the Cap Martinet venue.
At Solomun + LIVE at Destino, the guest is always a live act that is followed by a closing DJ set from Solomun himself. A great afternoon adventure that features +LIVE favorite Frank Wiedemann, aka Âme, at the closing party this Thursday. Âme has played multiple times at the Diynamic label boss’ party before. Prepare to be surprised by a special back-to-back set on this occasion, but the only way to figure it out is to join the rendezvous! Do not miss the last chance to dance at Solomun’s outdoor gathering in the sunshine. Get tickets to enjoy Solomun + Live last party at Destino this summer

There have also been a couple of curious additions to the sunset scene in San Antonio that we suggest you visit to spend a pleasant afternoon in front of the sea or dine while the night falls before heading to the club.
Space Eat & Dance
One of the island's best-known and most beloved businessmen, Pepe Roselló, has just launched an exciting leisure project on the famous coast of Ses Variades (a few meters away from the legendary Café del Mar), in his native San Antonio. The creator of the mythical Space Ibiza, who led 27 years of musical history at the Platja D’en Bossa venue (transformed into Hï Ibiza in 2017) and considered the best nightclub in the world more than a dozen times, says he wanted to create “The place where to meet us all: the old followers of Space, the people of Sant Antoni from so many generations and the new friends that, without a doubt, we will make along this path that now begins." Space Eat & Dance aims to offer residents and tourists a home with the purest Ibizan soul, providing a Mediterranean style food menu and an exquisite cocktail selection that will be topped with music and celebration during sunset and dinner time. All accompanied by music and a great atmosphere for all generations, bringing Space Ibiza’s magic to the present.
Space Eat & Dance is open Monday-Sunday from 12:30 pm-2 am.
Food at Monkey Ibiza
Located on San Antonio's famous sunset strip, the boho-chic Monkey brings a touch of Parisian class to Ibiza, inspired by Monkey Pigalle. Expect seasonal and fresh local products where the dishes are to be shared and the restaurant’s top chefs apply modern techniques with lots of creativity to each Mediterranean flavor. In regard to the decor, you will find a minimalist and warm atmosphere with exotic prints, Tulum furniture and white tones. There is even a trendy pool to cool off located at the bar and taste delicious wines from around the world or specialty cocktails (like Gin Monkey 47, voted the best Gin in the world in 2011).
After sunset, enter the Monkey Club and dance to groovy sounds from the electro music scene as well as performances by different singers. International DJs will make you spend an exciting evening full of promising encounters on the dancefloor, from the traditional Balearic sound to a more stripped-down, minimal Berlin flavor.
Monkey Ibiza is open Monday-Sunday from 1 p.m.-2 a.m.
