Ibiza Virgins' Guide: Hï Ibiza

We talk you through Ibiza's newest super-club.

Hï Ibiza is the newest addition to the island's vast super-club portfolio - and it really lives up to its “super” tag. Owned and operated by The Night League (the same team behind Ushuaïa Ibiza), Hï Ibiza first opened its doors in summer 2017. The venue is state-of-the-art and industry leading in every aspect.

Flanked by VIP areas on both sides, the venue's awe-inspiring main room has been christened The Theatre. Thusly, you can expect to be entertained in the auditorium-like space. What makes Hï Ibiza a club of the future is that the The Theatre boast an interchangeable configuration. It's essentially a blank canvas, meaning that no two nights are the same.

Each party deploys its own custom-made production. You could visit every night of the week and get a different experience each time. You will want to have your phone camera at the ready to record the dazzling display. Expect to be bombarded from all angles, by dancers, lasers, lighting and fog machines.

Whereas The Theatre is all about the centre-stage spectacle, the next-door Club Room is a more back-to-basics clubbing experience. Box-like, with less emphasis on production, sound is placed at the forefront. Don't be misled, though, this room is capable of holding its own.

Hï Ibiza also has two expansive outdoor areas to chill and use as a smoking area, in addition to an alfresco balcony that is accessible to general admission customers on selected nights. These outdoor areas are stylised by VIP teepees and Avatar-like glowing trees. Pretty magical.

Trivia: Hï Ibiza occupies the same grounds as the legendary Space Ibiza (1989-2016), but we digress. That was the past, and this is the present. Hï Ibiza is busy carving out a legacy all of its own.


HOW TO GET THERE

Hï Ibiza is situated at the southern tip of Playa d'en Bossa's main strip, opposite the Ushuaïa and Hard Rock Hotel complex. Taxis will drop off immediately outside but can cost as much as €30 if travelling all the way from San Antonio, so sharing is recommended. Visitors staying in Playa d'en Bossa benefit from being within walking distance - a real bonus of staying in this resort.

Those staying in San Antonio can save money by catching the disco bus. The L3B service connects the two on event days. Find out more info on the routes by reading our disco bus guide. A full list of disco bus timetables can be found here.

If you've rented a car, then Playa d'en Bossa has a large free car park in its centre, about 5-10 minutes walk to the venue.


THE TUNAGE

Hï Ibiza is predominant aimed at the current generation. As such, it features pretty much all the popular sounds in its week. That said, its Sunday party, Glitterbox, definitely attracts an older crowd with retro disco vibes. Elsewhere you can dance to tech house, futuristic techno, deep house or mainstream dance and chart music depending on the day of the week. Hï Ibiza's programme is consciously diverse. There's definitely something on the menu for everybody.

Expect to pay from €40 to €50 for most parties, depending on the time of year, although early bird and early entry tickets can often be picked up from between €20-€35 if you move quickly. For David Guetta's legendary F*** ME I'M FAMOUS! party, you can expect to pay upwards of €60 in advance. Leave it late, and it could be as much as €80 - and more on the door! It's even known to sell out on occasion, so securing your ticket early is a must. “Legendary” status comes at a price, but there's a reason why it remains so popular even after all these years. For the finer details, find our party guide here.


FOOD & DRINK

Spirit and mixers cost between €18-20, a beer €14 for a 330ml bottle and €13 for a draught caña - equivalent to approx 200ml. The 500ml water is €12. You can save money by purchasing drink bundles, which are available online. Much like a ticket, simply arrive with your bar code on your phone to be scanned. This will be exchanged for drink tokens which can be redeemed at the bar.

Anybody feeling plush and looking to fork out for a VIP experience should expect to pay in the thousands for a private area with bottle service. Still interested? Enquire directly with the venue.

Food options are sparse once in, so you will want to get some energy inside you prior to arrival - if you want to last until lights up, that is! Playa d'en Bossa is lined with places to grab a quick bite or takeout. Even if you are running late, stopping en route for a slice of pizza is a convenient compromise.


DRESS CODE

Hï Ibiza isn't as dressy as some other clubs, but it's still one of the stricter venues in comparison to elsewhere on the island. Sleeveless vests and sports team jerseys are a no-no. Shorts and trainers are fine, as are casual t-shirts but, but please do not turn up wearing flip-flops, ill-advised, regardless of dress code. Nobody wants their little toes trampled on in a busy club!


DJ SET TIMES

You can find these listed at various places inside the venue, although it is worth following the club's social media channels, where set-times are often shared in the hours before the party.


CLOAKROOM / ATM

Hï Ibiza does not have a cloakroom - designers used every available space to turn it into the incredible venue it is. With that in mind, make sure you travel light. Things such as selfie-sticks, GoPros and professional recording kit are prohibited items. There's so much going on, you don't really need to bring any extras. They would only prove a nuisance.

Should you wish to withdraw cash, an ATM is located just inside the entrance as you pass the box office. Alternatively, you will find many ATMs along Playa d'en Bossa's main strip, on either side of the road prior to your arrival. All of the bars accept payment via contactless or chip and PIN in any case.


Hï OPENING AND CLOSING PARTY

Since 2019, Hï Ibiza's Opening Party became special as it teams up with the neighbouring Ushuaïa and its Opening Party for a 24-hour, dual-venue affair.

The marathon dubbed Odyssey starts across the road in daylight at midday and rolled right the way through to the same time the following day, with Hï Ibiza opening at midnight - partying around the clock, just like the old days!

For 2020, Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa are set to use the 24-hour Odyssey format for the Closing Party as well, neatly bookending their season.
