Keeping us fuelled with hearty and healthy foods, refreshing drinks and infectious music, Dunes Ibiza has been a key part of our Ibiza adventures for many years. Located just a short stroll from the island’s longest beach and a stone’s throw from super clubs Ushuaia and Hi Ibiza, it’s the perfect spot for brunch, lunch or dinner with friends, post-sunset drinks or a pre-party warm-up with cocktails and tunes. 

This year, Dunes Ibiza has stepped up its own party game and offers a different musical event every night of the week. From trap and reggaeton to the finest house music, since last summer the bar and restaurant has its own boutique club that allows you to dance your heart out all night long. We went along to check out the Alice In Wonderland style Friday night fiesta, fittingly named ‘Promised Land’ like Joe Smooth’s iconic Ibiza anthem.

Even from across the road we could spot the fantastical decorations that transform Dunes Ibiza into a magical universe every week that twists your imagination and teases your ears with the finest house beats. A huge inflatable zebra was peeking out from underneath the ceiling on one side of the Dunes Ibiza sign, an elephant on the other! On the vibrant neon-lit terrace, the theme continued with colourful inflatable flowers and butterfly print umbrellas adorning the ceiling. Revellers from all over the island were enjoying expertly mixed cocktails and tasty sharing platters of food in the balmy summer breeze, while island favourite DJ Tom Pool was serving up energetic house beats from the outdoor booth. Dancers wearing flower crowns and pink tutu skirts were showing off their moves on the two platforms towering over the terrace.

Our curiosity attracted by a glow-in-the-dark, larger than life keyhole that marked the entrance to D Club, the interior party space, like Alice herself we risked taking a tumble down the rabbit hole. We were instantly mesmerised by the lush foliage, oversized chess pieces and mushrooms that made us feel like we had walked into the Mad Hatter’s tea party! A glittering staircase led to the upstairs gallery, but we decided to prop at the red glowing bar first.

With Tom Grimes from the Mischief party crew on the decks, we knew we wouldn’t leave the dancefloor anytime soon. And that just about sums up Dunes perfectly: you think you might pop in for a quick drink, a bite to eat or to gather your party posse, but will find you have everything you need for the perfect night out right there!
