It’s hard to believe, looking at the superclub of today, that Pacha began its life as a dusty farmhouse set inthe grasslands of Ibiza and surrounded by goats. These were the humble beginnings of a lifelong dream of brothers Ricardo and Piti Urgell, and from this farmhouse the Pacha brand was born. The house became a party central hub for the bohemian set of the late sixties in Ibiza, with legendary parties attended by visiting artists and musicians rubbing shoulders with the locals farmers .
The parties quickly became big business and the first official Pacha nightclub was opened by the Urgells in Sitges just outside of Barcelona in 1967, with the natural move to their spiritual home of Ibiza following closely in 1973. The club quickly became the hotspot for the emerging nightlife scene on Ibiza, populated by hippies and flower power children seeking a place to express their individualism.
Fast forward 30 years and the famous cherry logo presides over clubs all across the world, in far flung locations including Russia, Germany, England ,Brazil, Argentina, United States, Egypt, Lithuania, Rumania, Portugal and Austria.
These days the club is recognised as one of the most influential forces in dance music across the globe, showcasing upcoming talents alongside some of the most recognised names in the industry. Regularly full to capacity every night throughout the summer season, it is a must do on every clubbers Ibiza itinerary.
