Exclusively gay disco Anfora is one of the friendliest clubs in Ibiza. And one of the oldest.
It's colourful décor, amazing Dalt Vila location and reasonable drink prices make it a summer essential for Ibiza's vibrant gay scene.
Base Bar and its neighbour the Rock Bar are the pre-club spots in Ibiza Town.
For better or worse, the crowd's predominantly British, loud, but never aggressive in our experience. At times you can see more celebs than you'll find in a month's worth of Heat.
This iconic sunset bar's biggest annual attraction will be MIA this summer, as Pete Tong is under orders from Radio 1 to stop larking around in the sun and actually broadcast his Friday night Essential Mix from London, not Mambo.
We reckon this means more space to enjoy the sunset and less chance of being trampled by lagered up Brits. A big improvement.
The occasional setting for some cool parties of its own, El Bar has the sort of cool white ambience you'd expect from Pacha.
It's also remained something of a hidden gem because people somehow believe the bar is just for hotel guests.
Grial's location makes it an ideal stopping off place on the way to Pacha. Many people don't get any further.
The drinks are cheaper and, the deejays are often better than the over-priced club along the road. It's also open year-round with many of the best parties happening through the winter months.
Despite being marooned in one of the less-promising corners of the island Guarana has some pretty good parties even in the winter. It's one of the few venues that's open year round.
It's 'intimate' to be polite or 'small' to be accurate, but that means it doesn't require Pacha's thousands to feel busy. Especially if you're staying up this end of the island give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised
Inside of the bar can be found the Ibiza Rocks Diner, an open plan style kitchen that serves up some of the tastiest food on the island from early morning until late evening on a daily basis.
With an amazing mix of music, regular appearances from world famous DJ's, a cocktail menu and drinks selection to die for, and a prime location situated on the beach on the main strip through San Antonio, a visit to the Ibiza Rocks Bar is an essential part of any trip to the White Isle.
IBZ Lounge is where the Mao Rooms used to be and the vibe's much the same, as cool as the sushi they serve.
Truth be told it's perhaps a little too cool for some of us. In 2007 it became Hed Kandi's official pre-club bar. Take that how you want.
There's a place on Ibiza where a strange connection occurs. Clubbers from all over the world are drawn by it's mysterious force and congregate in the bay of San Antonio, waiting for some kind of sign.
We might believe that this is due to some curious conjunction of the planets or the influence of the moon provoking an irresistible attraction towards the bay. But it's due to something far less simple but no less surprising...
Once the centre of the hippie universe along with Anita's up the road, Las Dalias is now best-known for its weekly hippie market.
It tends to be pretty quiet once the tourist buses have gone. Each year brings promises of excitement, if only those dreadlocked crusties could get it together.
Lo Cura is local dive, in the nicest possible way. Open year 'round, it draws a loyal crowd with inexpensive beers, killer cocktails, relaxed tunes and a congenial atmsophere.
An intimate alternative to the many near-by tourist traps.
Located in San Antonio on the Sunset Strip, formerly known as 'Rey de Copas', Mint is a new concept of a lounge-bar with fresh cocktails and authentic Italian cuisine with artisan pizzas, suggestive pasta dishes and refreshing salads.
The cocktails are made with tropical fruit such, such as the passion fruit or the delicious Chinese mandarin caipirinhas...
Over the years, Plastik has established itself as possibly the leading Ibiza bar brand. The original San Antonio based bar attracts a young and vibrant crowd, specialising in pre-party nights for all of the leading clubs. The legendary VIP area has established itself as a favourite celebrity hang out with a famous face to be spotted in there most nights during the summer. Plastik is increasingly on the MUST VISIT list for Ibiza aficionados.
Clubbers move between the Rock and Base Bar with little concern about which one they`re outside.
Few bother to hang out in the cramped interior, which is a shame because the bar attracts the cream of the DJs before they hit the club decks later on. Oh, and we should say there's never rock music in the Rock Bar.
And if you suffer from vertigo or stiletto heels the Rock's toilets are less of a challenge than Base Bar's.
Sister bar to the renowned Cafe Mambo, Savannah has in recent years become a prominent feature of the world famous sunset strip. With its laid back and funky attitude Savannah is the grown up sibling of the more raucous Mambo, elegant yet cutting edge with a twist of that Miami vibe thrown in for good measure.
Ibiza's most confusingly named bar. Not only is it on the wrong side of the island for a sunset, but it's in the middle of town with no view.
Despite these shortcomings it's constantly abuzz with DJs, promoters and club owners slurping beers and taking full advantage of the free wifi.
Grubby, lo-fi and -- as its website unapologetically boasts -- "not for everyone", Underground is a hotspot for clubbing cognoscenti and anyone needing a break from the blatant commercialism that inevitably grips the bigger clubs.
