IT’S TIME TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SAN ANTONIO AGAIN…❤️
We’ve always been in love with San Antonio and championed our beloved town since we made it our permanent home back in 2008. From the egg roundabout to the epic sunset watching spots from the cliff diving hidden beaches to it’s ability to throw a party – we think it’s time that the town we know and love gets a little more praise.
This upcoming season is going to be big. Line-ups are looking strong, new talent is being championed and local bars, clubs and restaurants have never looked better than they are moving into our upcoming season.
So here is why we should be getting excited about this western coast town as we’ve got something to shout about for Summer 2017…
SAN AN SUNDAYS HAVE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD
Following a successful jaunt to Croatia in 2016, the hugely popular UK house label Defected In The House is returning to Ibiza. Following 15 years as residents on the island, from hosting Booom to the terrace in Amnesia for Together, Defected is back and taking over Eden for 20 dates this summer with their Sunday night sessions and we cannot wait for this one.
Eden as a venue has slowly coasted along over the past number of years thanks to the large competition from it’s superstar DJ rotating multi-million pound superclub rivals across the rest of the white isle. But last year this San Antonio staple hinted about a potential return to it’s best with credible and popular with workers nights such as underground party Faction providing something new and ambitious for the area. Defected at Eden is a fantastic move, one which will make Sundays a power day for the town.
Those eagle eyed Ibiza Rocks fans reading will know that we are launching a brand new pool party residency this summer, every Sunday from the 11th June. We don’t do things by halves so look out for a big announcement on this one in the upcoming weeks! Get ready to start the party poolside with us as we provide the ultimate Sunday soundtrack.
THE NEW HOME OF THE POOL PARTY
One of the biggest standout events from Ibiza 2016 had to be Craig David’s 8 date summer TS5 Pool Party residency. It may sound bias for us to include this but last season’s sold out spectacular created something special and brought tourists from all over the world to San Antonio purely to experience this daytime treat curated by the MOBO award winning star.
Featuring hits, sunshine, peak pool vibes and the ultimate reignited love for Craig David, we’ll see you down the front this summer again, every Thursday from 20th July – 21st September.
Staying with us over these dates? The party is INCLUDED in your stay! For everyone else, grab your tickets before they go!Book tickets
BRAND NEW PARTY AT OCEAN BEACH CLUB
Ocean Beach Club has continued to successfully provide 7 days a week daytime partying in San Antonio since it opened in 2012. From Hed Kandi to Kisstory, it doesn’t disappoint with it’s glamour, popular event schedule and day to night fun.
New for summer 2017 is their latest addition to the calendar with HotBed taking over Wednesdays. We’re told to ‘expect nothing but House music, live instruments & good vibes all day long’ – sounds like a decent hump day to us.
AND NOT FORGETTING….
San An proudly represents the Sunset Strip. A mere 5 minute walk from the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Cafe Mambo and co are the bars, views and sounds that epitomise Ibiza. Have you really been to Ibiza without that textbook sunset Facebook cover photo captured at your pre-drinks on the rocks while one of the biggest DJs in the world plays? No, no you have not.
The width of deliciously brilliant restaurants in the area has also never been better. From the hidden gem of Tapas Tapas to David’s Italian €12.50 set menu, from the mighty Skinny Kitchen’s guilt free brunches to Ibiza Rocks Bar’s now legendary chicken pittas down by the beach – prepare to treat yourself to more than just chicken fries in Burger King at 4am this summer.
And for when you want to change the scenery on your white isle trip, hop on a disco bus for as little as €3 to take you to relocate to Bora Bora Beach, pull up right outside Ushuaia or simply take yourself to Ibiza Town and get lost in the old streets and stumble into some seriously quaint and cultured bars and beyond. The water taxis found alongside the San Antonio marina mean that some of the island’s most beautiful beaches can be only 30 minutes away. Our new 4* bar Rooftop Nine can also be found over in San Antonio Bay, expect views for days!
So here’s to you San Antonio, may this be your best summer yet and we at Ibiza Rocks can’t wait to be part of that with you.
