It’s that time of year again when here at Deliciously Sorted we can feel the energy and excitement simmering on our island in anticipation of the forthcoming summer season and of course the famous “Ibiza opening parties.”

As the air starts to have a welcome touch of warmth to it, the skies become clear and shine a dazzling blue, restaurant and bar owners dust down their doors and the island starts to hum with the hustle and bustle of holidaymakers. Yes, it’s springtime in Ibiza and we are ready and waiting for the first parties to kick off the start to the season as the movers and shakers come together to celebrate in style. This year promises a considerable line up of opening parties to dip our toes into.

One such opening sure to give our dance shoes a fare weathering is brand new club concept Odyssey, not for the faint-hearted, you will require 24 hours of energy for this one! Odyssey is hosted by award-winning super clubs Ushuaïa and Hï, and for the first time ever these two clubs will join together to throw a 24 hour outdoor- indoor clubbing spectacular.

Next on our to do list is a table reservation at Pachas sensational cabaret restaurant Lío. Indulge in an evening of glitz and glamour as the fashion elite come together for a spectacular evening of food, showtime and dancing that this opening party promises to deliver. 

Also worth a “pop in” will be the Destino opening when legend Marco Carola will be sure to set the decks on fire as he delivers a chunky set of underground beats.

Solomun +1 at Pacha is also an absolute must as the icon himself returns for the second longest-running Pacha Ibiza residency. The three-time DJ award winner will take over each Sunday to serve up his famous classy melodies and uplifting grooves.

We absolutely cannot wait for the Ibiza 2019 summer season to begin!
