What’s going on?
The West End of San Antonio is famous for its raucous bars and clubs spread over a small area in front of the harbour. As you stand at the foot of Calle Santa Agnes, the neon lights accompanying every bar and club shine down on the hordes of partygoers packing the streets below.
The smaller streets branching off the main drag offer more of the same, so there is in all about six square blocks of venues to experience. The whole area is pedestrianised, so the streets are full of bar crawlers, hen and stag parties, and stumbling bar flies who have had a bit too much!
As a whole, you can find manic dance floors, fast food, good restaurants, strip clubs, live music and even some more relaxed venues offering chill out lounges for those who need a little break!
What sort of crowd?
The whole shebang, from hens and stags to locals, from organised bar crawls to hardened clubbers. Everyone who holidays in San Antonio will at some point visit the West End to see what all the fuss is about. Mostly young Brits line the streets, but all age ranges can have a great night out.
What night is best?
In Ibiza every night is Saturday night and the West End is no different!
What time should I go?
Many of the bars are open all day and night, and stay open until 4am.
How much are drinks?
If you talk to a PR before you enter, chances are you will be offered at least a free shot. Once inside, drink prices will commonly cost €3 upwards to about €6.
What should I wear?
Anything you like!!
What music tastes are catered for?
Everything from dance (obviously!) to Indie.
Where can I eat?
There are plenty of fast food eateries in the West End, but also some good restaurants in the adjoining streets offering excellent local and British food.
As a whole, the West End has everything in place to offer a great night out. Be careful though, try not to overdo it and give a local policeman a reason to have a talk with you! Keep your shirt on and although drinking in the street is mostly overlooked, it is still illegal so use caution.
