My extended weekend (june 27-30)

Saturday 27th June

wake up at 4:30am, after a crap sleep (too excited?)
get a taxi to the airport for our 7:35 flight
by 6:30am we've had beer 2 and some naughty food to set us up

uneventful flight with more booze
then a quick taxi ride to Figueretas to the Playa Sol
we stayed here for my stag night too and know what we get, decent place for an amazing price
only problem is that this time we are on the top floor - not a big place but we are all getting a bit older

after a spot of lunch (Menu del dia in the Haddock Cafe) we hit the pool for some sun and swim.

dinner tonight is decided to be the Principe - a blinding gazpacho followed by a cracking paella - setting us up for the nights festivities. Then a drink in Es Pas round the corner from our apts (as we'd promised the persistent pr girl)

we managed to hit Ibiza Town to the Reunion bar at the harbour - Uly the main man there recognised a couple of us from 2 years ago and then the nice waitress remembered too.

got to Defected @ Pacha for just about 1:30 and the party really got going. Bumped into Shovell just after getting in, lovely bloke, chatted for a bit and then danced to Miss Divine in the main room. After a wander round the place to see the rooms we ended up back at the main room for Copyright - absolutely rocked the place. Shovell driving the beat on and plenty of confetti! - the night finally ended at just after 7am

Sunday

not much done before 2pm in actual fact. on es pas recommendation we walked to Playa D'en Bossa to get some food in JDs. Nice staff and food was ok too. a short trip back to the apts to pick up necessities and then walked back to PDB for some bora bora action

last time i was in Ibiza was Sept 07 and bora bora was dead. quiet music, barely anyone there

this time the place was rocking again- booming music, security being discreet but watchful and of course Spiderman. We've actually all 3 of us developed a need to dance like the Spiderman

a few drinks there to soak up the atmosphere and then back to Se Figueretas. dinner was just a quick pizza and then onto the favourite Reunion bar again in Ibiza Town before heading to Space. Not before some drama in the taxi. 1st set of lights after getting in and the main man of the weekend decides he is nauseous and just leaps out of the taxi. we are bemused and the driver cannot stop so our friend has to meet us at Space.

We Love didn't have quite the stellar line-up that i've been used to but my god was the place jumping. Due to the booze stops we missed the sunset terrace but we arrived to a packed covered terrace and great music. 2manyDjs were immense and we went home happy bunnies

Monday

the other 2 had become sleep merchants now and i was awoken by my roommate snoring like f***. i grabbed my towel and headed to the pool for some sunshine. Eventually they surface and once again breaklunch is about 2pm (average at best)

given the hedonism of the 2 previous nights we are all fairly lethargic, so we amuse ourselves sunning on the balcony, listening to good music, drinking beer and dancing like Spiderman

dinner tonight was slightly more fancier in the All bistro - really nice food, good service and reasonably priced too (strange given that the place was fancy)

we then decide to conserve cash by heading to some dodgy dive bars in the west end:lol: -
was fun to drink cheap booze and people watch the casualties wandering past.

the last time it was just the 3 of us in ibiza we were in a horror apts in San An so we got nostalgic and had fun in Koppas. they were doing a 2 for the price of 1 deal so we started well. then the main man decided (whilst incredibly pissed) to buy all the remaining spaces on their "football card" - spending €20 on it. Unsuprisingly he won.....the prize you ask?...............€20 of booze at the bar. So we get half of the drinks that we'd have gotten had he just bought drinks!!!

after all that and we headed to Cocoon. efficient queue and spotlight ticketing comes up trumps again. Now we checked out the 2 rooms but i'm a big Sven Vath fan so i was there for him - Mathais Kaden was great but Sven was brilliant. Really getting the crowd going (but strangely losing a lot of them by the end as they seemed to flood to the packed terrace)

the only sad part was trying to arrange to meet Grego fora drink and a combination of phones, noise and drunkeness on my part means its not happening - next time?

7am comes and its off we go - luckily, whilst i'm counting and recounting the scraps of money i have left for the taxi to the apts, a nice American man David, offers to share the taxi as we both are in Figeuretas - saved me possibly being short on the fare - thanks David

all this means we have 1 hr to sleep before getting to the airport for the flight home (have to be there on time, my wife would not forgive me)

flight ends up delayed for some bizarre issue over take-off slots :evil:
but we get off eventually and we are even joined by celebs in the guise of Slam - working on music as we flew home.



so all in all, a tremendous weekend - wish it was longer but missed my other half too much
great clubs, good laughs

tunes that were everywhere -
La Mezcla and Billie Jean

I thought Sven's set was brilliant until he played that remake of the B-52s track.
