The happiest news of last week will come true this weekend: Ibiza Night Clubs Reopen
The White Isle will officially return from 8th October following a ruling by the Consell de Govern Balearics. Clubs will now be able to operate at 75% capacity. However, as well as the curfew is set at 5 am, masks will be mandatory, drinking on the dancefloor will be prohibited and limitations per table have been removed.
“The responsibility we have from now on has been demonstrated,” said Ocio de Ibiza’s Leisure Manager José Luis Benítez. ”We are going to ask our partners and clients for more responsibility so that they do not take any step backwards.”
Earlier this month, Ibiza lifted coronavirus restrictions on night-time events, now meaning that social gatherings between 2am and 6am can currently go ahead without restriction.
The first pilot event on the White Isle took place at the Hard Rock Hotel on Friday 25th June, with 1200 of the island’s key workers invited for a session aimed at testing COVID-19 protocols within nightlife and music settings ahead of clubs being allowed to return en masse. Diario de Ibiza reported that results from the event “conclude that there was no Covid infection” among its 1,236 attendees, who were largely fully vaccinated, and wore masks throughout the event.
Clubs on the White Isle will be required to adhere to conditions such as partygoers needing to show proof they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to be granted entry.
Amnesia, DC10 (Circoloco) and Pacha are the biggest Ibiza clubs expected to reopen this weekend, among other small clubs or events all over the white island.
