The island’s first official nightclub where heritage, music and glamor combine.

In 1967, on the sun-soaked shores of Stiges, just outside Barcelona, brothers Ricardo and Piti Urgell ignited a cultural revolution with the birth of the first-ever Pacha venue. Little did they know that six years later, this venture would evolve into the very heartbeat of Ibiza, that’s forever changing the landscape of nightlife.

During the late '60s, Ibiza was a haven for artists, writers, and free-spirited bohemians, seeking refuge from the hustle of mainland life.

Pacha emerged as the island's first official nightclub, with its name derived from a playful conversation between Ricardo and his wife, envisioning a life of royal opulence or 'pachas' as their clubs began to prosper. This highborn vision laid the foundation for what would become synonymous with elaborate, classy clubbing experiences that still to this day attract the rich and famous.

As disco music transitioned into the burgeoning house genre, Pacha Ibiza opened its doors in 1973, embracing the island's laid-back atmosphere and lust for a good time. What started as a traditional Ibizan finca transformed over two decades into a super-club, which now boasts a capacity of 3,000 people.

The Main Room's spectacular infrastructure now houses a central DJ booth, Pacha’s famed VIP sections, and an expansive hi-tech dance floor, though despite the modern enhancements, the essence of Pacha remains true to its roots – a place to forget your woes and have a good time.

The club's allure extends beyond the mainroom, featuring the renowned Funky Room for soul, funk, and disco enthusiasts, and the Roof Terrace for a more relaxed lounge experience.

All of these rooms remain full every day during peak summer, as Pacha hosts multiple residencies from sought-after DJs, making it a destination for music aficionados worldwide.

Pacha’s renowned summer residencies include their own in-house original parties PURE Pacha and Flower Power, as well as CamelPhat, Bedouin, Solomun and Marco Carola’s Music On.

Since the 1980s, Pacha has witnessed countless A-List celebrities walk through its doors, from the likes of Grace Jones and Freddie Mercury, to Leonardo DiCaprio, Penelope Cruz, and Javier Bardem all reveling within its iconic brick walls.

Even amidst the challenges of a global pandemic, Pacha's confidence in its legacy and future remained unshaken. Post-Covid, the club experienced a 40% increase in sales from 2019, a testament to the brand's enduring significance. CEO Sanjay Nandi emphasizes the importance of embracing change while maintaining core values to ensure relevance and success in the next 50 years.

Pacha Ibiza, from its humble origins to its global prominence, stands as the unofficial ambassador of Ibiza clubbing, a timeless jewel in the world of nightlife.
