Underground is for those in the know. This Ibiza club is off the beaten track (somewhere on the road between Privilege and Amnesia), but the reward is well worth the quest.
The feeling is intimate here because music comes before everything else, so don’t expect bougie VIP and bottle service. The lineups are undercover stacked, and you typically get treated to names usually playing bigger/more expensive venues.
Locals are always a good sign in Ibiza. After all, they know the island better than we ever will. Underground follows the DC-10 model and does very little promotion. The result is a crowd that knows what they want and lower prices. Result!
Although Formentera is the quieter sibling of Ibiza, it doesn’t mean they don’t have a good time. Tipic is a small venue with a 500 person capacity, but as Formentera’s visitor numbers increase the space has become busier.
It has an illustrious history from its beginnings in 1971, which was opened by Pink Floyd. The rest of the 70s and 80s were prime years. Nowadays the Cocoon promotion (lead by Sven Vath) has made Tipic its second Baleric home.

The stunning setting was begging for a pre-party venue, which was filled brilliantly by the Mambo family. Its the official pre-party for Pacha and the intimate DJ booth has often been the backdrop of viral videos showcasing superstars like Claptone, Pete Tong, Fat Boy Slim and Carl Cox to name just a few.
