Despite an ever-growing amount of competition on the White Isle, the glamorous cocktail, dinner and party destination that is KM5 has remained right at the top of its game for over two decades. Testament to its consistent popularity with both visitors to Ibiza and island residents, last night’s 23rd birthday celebrations were bustling with a stylish crowd eager to honour this milestone.

Guests were greeted by a complimentary Ciroc vodka Summer Colada cocktail served up in fresh coconuts, the perfect way to toast the night ahead. In the lush gardens, illuminated by twinkling lights and neon pink and purple glow, revellers were relaxing on the comfy sofas that are dotted around the space, sipping on cocktails underneath the fig tree that is shrouding one of the outdoor bars and in the lounging in the spacious marquees.

Renowned as much for it delicious culinary offering as it is for their fiestas, many had taken the opportunity to enjoy dinner in the magical ambience of KM5’s restaurant and feast on the Mediterranean fare on offer. Others came ready to enjoy the music, dressed up in their most stylish finery to honour the occasion. Never short of surprises, a live saxophone player shows of his skills throughout the night, accompanying the fine beats spun by the DJ.

A charismatic stilt walker was handing out fresh flowers and joking with the guests, with a pop-up polaroid stand giving party goers the opportunity to create a vintage style visual souvenir of the evening. The P Brothers were bringing pure feel good vibes to the party, rocking the outdoor stage with their unique and infectious soul, jazz, disco and rock sound. No one was able to resist the energetic live set, creating an al fresco dance floor underneath the stars that was buzzing for the duration of the show.

Sexy dancers in gold sequin dresses were showing off their moves, while the fashionable crowd soaked up the happy atmosphere. Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday party without a cake and at midnight, a beautiful confection decorated with colourful sugar flowers was carried out while revellers were illuminating the night with fiery sparklers. Set up on a table filled with jars of candy, the miniature sweet stall was tackled with much enthusiasm by all.

Soon it was time to take the celebrations inside, with KM5 regular Donaes luring party goers into the onsite club space, which was filled with black and gold balloons covering the ceiling. He played an upbeat and energetic set of house tracks, filling up the dance floor in no time. With more and more guests arriving still, as the night entered the early hours island-favourite Iban Mendoza took over the booth, a hotly anticipated Ibiza spinner that kept the atmosphere sky high, no slacking allowed! Entering its next year with equal measures of style and swagger, KM5 once again proved that its formula for success and unrivalled atmosphere remains as powerful as ever.
