Review: Es Paradis Opening 2012

The first big opening of the season, at San An's beautiful Es Paradis!

By Spotlight

It’s been quite some time since I was last in San Antonio’s Es Paradis, and once stepping in to the huge single room pyramid like structure of the club you can’t help but be quite impressed with the place… It’s undeniably one of the more beautiful clubs on the island, with the walls draped with plants and the various raised stages looking like those white bird cages, but massive and with people in them, not birds… The centre of the club is dominated by a raised platform and series of walkways where they had the all-important scantily clad dancers parading and strutting about in thongs and nipple tassels... and occasionally we had a performance from a violinist which the crowd seemed to enjoy, and I must admit I did too!

Musically, it was kept to the Es Paradis family and friends - DJ Oliver (The Face of Ibiza fav), Sam Cannon of Hed Kandi, Alex Seda and Steve ‘MDK’ Valverde all did a set. In terms of the music being played it was more or less anything goes - some classics thrown in, remixes of Coldplay tracks and the like, and some cool house music all doing its job by ensuring that at no point was the entire club anything less than energetic with a happy vibe. To be truthful, the DJs and the music took backstage to the performers and dancers, it wasn’t one of those parties where everyone is staring at the DJ, arms in the air, going nuts, more of a having a drink and a chat, dancing a little, but generally having a nice time sort of party. When I’d look around most people eyes were drawn up towards the dancers as I suspect a fair portion of the crowd hadn’t seen a club of this scale or with this kind of performance before, so were clearly impressed. Strictly eyes down for me, of course…

All in all a great night, and a great way to show off the club to the people of Ibiza and the various people on holiday! Es Paradis has got some cool events lined up this season that will all make use of the unique beauty of the club, so with the opening out of the way we can all get on with what will no doubt be an amazing season for them.
