Anything goes at Pikes hotel, the original home of the Ibiza house party.

A cat peers through its monocle, a lizard slings a microphone, umbrellas hang from trees and a fish gets its smoke on. This is just some of the creative artwork residing on the walls or lounging from branches that is representative of the ‘anything goes' atmosphere which hangs enticingly in the air at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel.

Set in the rural hills outside San Antonio, Pikes is a hotel cum party venue, poolside bar and restaurant with a juicy history. Expanded from a 500-year old finca into a luxury hotel in the early '80s by founder Tony Pike, Pikes soon became the Chelsea Hotel of Ibiza, a hideout and party hub for A-listers including George Michael, Grace Jones, Boy George and Freddie Mercury.

In 2016, Tony Pike handed the reins fully over to Andy and Dawn Hindle, directors of Ibiza Rocks. Considering how intrinsic rock and roll is to the ethos and energy of Pikes, the collaboration with Ibiza Rocks is an obvious and successful one. The Rocks team created a fantastic house party venue, with residencies like Rock Nights, DJ Harvey residency Mercury Rising, Pikes On Sundays by the creators of We Love and the wild and wonderful annual Halloween costume party. Pikes is also a great place to pop in for a Sunday roast, for a spot of bathtub karaoke, for a yoga class or simply for a drink and a dip in the pool.

If you're looking for the spirit of Ibiza, it is here, dangling from a tree in the hills outside San An. Pikes must be experienced to be appreciated.
