Known for its wild nightlife, Ibiza is home to some of the most well-known clubs in the world, showcasing some of the most popular DJs in electronic music. One of the most notable destinations has traditionally been Space Ibiza, a nightclub that was one of the original stomping grounds for the house and techno scenes. This club brought in artists from all over the world and even once provided residency for the king of techno, Carl Cox. What was extra-unique about this club is that it would close for only two hours each day, just enough time to turn everything over for the next event. Unfortunately, the doors of Space are no longer open, but this doesn’t mean the club has not left a massive, lasting impact on the music scene in other clubs on the island, such as Pacha and Amnesia. If you love house music, and you love techno, Ibiza is an essential destination.
