Sankeys, The World's Best Club 2010 as voted by DJ Mag readers, has just announced they are opening a new Sankeys club in Playa d'en Bossa, Ibiza. This really is a special year for David Vincent and everyone at the club as 2011 shapes up to be the clubís most important 12 months to date; later in the year they will open another Sankeys venue in one of the world's greatest clubbing cities, NYC, whilst keeping Manchester at the fore of electronic music and culture in the UK. This is a part three of the Seven Sankeys of the World vision around the world by 2015.
The club is located in arguably the most exciting part of Ibiza - Playa d'en Bossa ; the area has been subject to extensive regeneration over the last 2 years and now boasts a host of exciting ventures; at the centre of this activity is Sankeys' second ever venue.
Chill on the Terrace or get down and party in the basement the club caters for everyone getting into the Ibiza spirit of doing exactly what they want. A vibrant music policy means incredibly varied and forward thinking line ups. Island stalwarts Monza are the first brand announced who will be hosing weekly nights on Thursday's from June 23rd.
David Vincent, Sankeys director comments .'This is a dream come true as we open a Sankeys venue in Ibiza. It's a project we have been working on for some time and it's going to be an incredible experience. We have got a world-class venue which is built very much in the spirit of the original Sankeys and we will be working with our friends and family to make this first season unforgettable. I have a special relationship with Ibiza since promoting for the legendary Pacha over 13 years ago - there's no other place like the island in the world. This really is a new beginning for the club, me as an individual and a pivotal time for Sankeys as we take Sankeys to NYC and continue to build on what we have created over in Manchester too.'
Patrik Dechent and Ariel Giordano, the promoters of Monza Ibiza, said, 'We are fascinated with this project and are very excited to work with such a world famous brand like Sankeys. We are just happy to be involved in developing the first real urban city club to come for the island of Ibiza for the first time in years.'
Sankeys Ibiza is the sister of the legendary flagship club in Manchester that has contributed immensely to UK club culture. Opened in 2011, the club has gone from strength to strength, building up a strong base of residents with the likes of Darius Syrossian, Steve Lawler, Duke Dumont, Amine Edge & DANCE, Greg Vickers, Sidney Charles and Hector Couto just to name a few.
Situated in Playa D’en Bossa, the club is open seven nights per week catering to many styles of house and techno, housed under a 3000 capacity, four-roomed venue consisting of The Basement, The Lab, Spektrum and The Boutique.
The heart of Sankeys, The Basement in Ibiza is designed to look almost exactly the same as its Mancunian counterpart to give it that “home away from home” feeling for the British clubbers and also to give that authentic Sankeys Manchester clubbing feel to anyone who hasn’t experienced the parent club yet. With a low ceiling, state of the art LED lighting and an ever so powerful Void sound system expect a high octane clubbing experience unlike any club in Ibiza.
Based off the legendary Mancunian club The Haçienda, The Lab could be seen as the polar opposite to The Basement. With high ceilings, this room gives an amazing warehouse feel, best suited to the techno DJs that Tribal Sessions has been booking over the summer.
Spektrum is another room based off the Manchester club. A small room with a boutique view gives you a more intimate feel, topped with ceiling lights inspired by Berlin’s Watergate which gives the room a feeling of colour and warmth. Don’t expect this room to be reserved for the smaller DJs; we’ve had Len Faki play in this room!
