January on the Island is calmer than its summer season, making it perfect for if you fancy a weekend away without too much hustle and bustle. There is still plenty to see and do and the temperatures are still a few degrees higher than most of Europe.
If you are heading over to Ibiza between November and April, pop your head into Atzaró, Santa Eulalia on a Friday for live music, tapas and 2 for 1 cocktails in the evening whilst watching the sunset.
If you love a good laugh (and your Spanish is pretty good) head over to Pacha on 20th January for ‘Los Viernes’, a comedy and dinner show hosted by Luismi, with Dj’s Ken Abel and Angel Linde playing music till 1am.
On the same night, you have ‘Funktonic’ at Malanga Café, with all night dancing, courtesy of Andy Lagoon and Rafa of Syria which will get you in the weekend mood.
Pacha again and this time it is Vintage Festival on 21st January with Sebastian Gamboa, Oscar Colorado, Angel Linde and B-Linda on electric violin. This is a retro night of charm designed to make you feel through the music.
Take a stroll down Playa d’en Bossa beach on Sunday and grab a table for Pelirroca Ibiza at Nassau Tanit Beach for music from DJ Jo Mills and a three course meal for just 23 euro! This runs right through till April so if you love it the first time, you can always go back for more.
January goes out with a bang as island legends Ibiza Global Radio showcase night takes over Pacha, with Mendo, David Moreno and 2VILAS spin the decks and ‘Make Ibiza Dance’. Always a night worth visiting.
If all this dancing leaves you hungry, head over to new opening Rio Ibiza and sample the new menu from their new head chef. A restaurant, bar and club all roled into one, its doors stay open all through the winter making it a perfect hub for your January holiday. Located in San Antonio, you can see the sunsets from its deck seating and with some of the best steaks on the island and local grown produce, the food makes this place worth a visit.
If art is more your thing, Shushupoint Ibiza presents Boke (Victor Barrena), with his new exhibition ‘Winter Sessions’; a look at graffiti art. The exhibition has been running since October and finishes at the end of January.
