The Bars of San Antonio Bay Ibiza by Alexandra Ellis
San Antonio Bay is a long strip which runs from the edge of San Antonio all the way to Port des Torrent and has 5 great beaches, so you’re never too far away from the sand and sea.
You can check out a map of all the venue locations at the foot of this blog.
San An Bay has a main one-way road with smaller roads leading off it down to the waterfront and this is where the majority of bars and restaurants are located. So in no particular order here are my favourites.
A home from home Irish pub located at the start of The Bay. With a large outside dining area (which serves some tasty food) and live music every night, you’re sure to have a good ‘Craic’ with the staff and tourists alike. It’s is also popular with the locals too, so there’s always a good mix of customers on a night out.
Everyone loves Panffers in the summertime as it plays some of the best music and has some equally great people working there.
With an inside and outside bar, plus a spacious terrace to enjoy drinks with your mates, it really is the perfect spot for the warmer months to watch the world go by.
Known for its Thai street food, Live Music, 12 sports screens and it’s Gin & Tequila Bar., Peppers 2 is a wonderful place to visit with many customers returning night after night.
Make sure you say hi to Zach the outside barman too and get him to create one of his amazing cocktails. You won’t be disappointed! A great vibe alongside amazing drinks and food, it is the perfect place to lose many hours whilst on holiday.
Kumharas offers a very relaxed and chilled place to watch the sun go down beneath the waves, which is one of the most spectacular sights on Ibiza. Take in the ambiance this summer whilst you enjoy a fantastic selection of cocktails and fusion cuisine.
Under one of the island’s original defence towers, you cannot help but be drawn in by the mix of cultures, tastes and smells that adorn this Indian-hippy inspired location.
For those of you staying at the far end of the Bay, Mari Pins is a must visit during your holiday.
Enjoy a cocktail around the outside bar and terrace area, dance the night away to the Island renowned DJ Kenny’s eclectic mix of tunes, or have a go on the pole if you’re feeling brave enough after a few shots of Hierbas. Not always the best idea but it’s fun to watch. There’s always a great crowd here.
Situated on the waters edge looking out across San Antonio Bay The Beach Ibiza offers a very relaxed and calming atmosphere.
Take a bite at the original Mediterranean taste with a twist or take a sip on the best cocktails on the Cocktail Bar terrace where you can enjoy your day in a quiet and relaxed environment.
If you can’t be bothered with taxis to San An for a night out and don’t fancy the big clubs, then family-run ‘Millennium’ Bar is always a good shout.
The music is just what you’d expect from Ibiza, all the deepest, Underground House and Techno beats to tickle your ears.
It has a massive outside bar and dining area and a spacious dance floor to show off your best moves.
They also serve Breakfast and Lunch if you’re feeling a little delicate from the night before, or just want to prepare yourself for the day ahead.
From cocktails to shots, delicious food to Balearic Beats, BN3 has everything you need for a night out on the tiles. It also has quite a colourful history, with the likes of legendary DJ’s Judge Jules and Pete Tong both gracing the decks at BN3.
You’re also sure to hear a few magical stories from the residents once you’re through the doors and established at the bar.
Part of the famous Mambo Group, Bucanero is reopening its doors after a short break and I can’t wait!
The team at ‘Bucs’ (situated right next to Donnegans) are always welcoming and ready to serve your favourite concoction whilst you dance the night away with their resident DJ’s.
The only true night club in San Antonio Bay Essigi is a truly unique music project and experience. Providing great dance music they invite all into a magical and emotional journey using the ultimate Deep, Tech, Progressive & Big Room Sounds, progressive mixing technique and amazing original visuals. Open from 11pm daily.
