A very important part of the Ibiza club scene are the many music bars around the island, where clubbers go to warm-up for their coming nights out or to listen to music and dance in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Most of these bars have free entry and cheaper drinks than the clubs (not that much cheaper in some cases), but still have great local or big name international guest DJs playing. You only need 20 or 30 people to create a really great atmosphere, and these are often the scene for many a legendary night out.
Many of the beach parties will start in early afternoon and really get going from 5 or 6pm until midnight. The other bars will start getting busy after midnight and will run until early morning.
