When holidaying in Ibiza there are a lot of bars to choose from but these are our picks for top five trendy bars. Each offers a unique take on the famous Ibiza nightlife and you’re sure to find something to treasure at each location.
Bambuddha Tantra Cocktail Palace
Bambuddha Tantra Cocktail Palace is a fabulously exotic bar and restaurant created by John Moon whose extensive travels are reflected in the Asian-inspired ambience. Set in bamboo gardens, laced with stone statues, golden buddhas (props from the movie, “Anna and the King”) and “ancient erotic artifacts,” Bambuddha is “a restaurant temple fusing Spirituality with Sexuality.” It opens at 8 PM and the partying goes on until 3 AM. Start at the bar where cocktails such as Tantra, Bamboozle, Flirtini and Yoni are served, then move onto dinner followed by drinks and dancing the night away.
Pershing Yacht Terrace
The Pershing Yacht Terrace at 7 Pines Kempinski Resort is one of the “coolest watering holes on Ibiza.” Enjoy stunning views of the sun setting over the Mediterranean while sipping one of their signature cocktails. There’s also a Tapas menu if you’re feeling hungry. The bar is inspired by the design of the Pershing 9X Yacht. During the summer months there is live music that adds to the luxuriously convivial atmosphere.
Terrace at Gran Hotel Montesol
For a fantastic view of Ibiza town, be sure to plan cocktails on the Terrace at Gran Hotel Montesol. Its rooftop is famous for its fabulous views and is the perfect location to watch the sun set while enjoying a cocktail. Situated in an historic building, the Gran Hotel Montesol was the first hotel on the island, having been established as a hotel in 1933. With stunning views, a relaxed atmosphere, cocktails and a dinner menu, this is an ideal spot to begin and end the evening.
Located in Dalt Vila (the old town) of Ibiza, S’Escalinata, which means staircase, is literally a bar on an outside staircase with tables, beanbags and other comfortable furnishings, inviting guests to relax and enjoy its tapas and delicious cocktails while watching people explore the charms of the old town. Prices are reasonable here in conjunction with the relaxed and informal atmosphere.
For a completely different experience, reserve a seat at Roto which is situated overlooking the sea in the heart of Ibiza’s harbor. Watching the sun set is a popular pastime in Ibiza and Roto offers one of the best. Enjoy cocktails and dinner as the sun sinks below the horizon, watching the boats sail in from the sea to dock in the harbor. This bar/restaurant is an exciting place to relax and savor the good life, complete with food, drink, convivial atmosphere and stunning views.
