Here is our guide to the best parties in town this year..
Pacha goes Disco! – Pacha – New Year´s Eve 2016
This year Pacha is going back to its roots and throwing a fun filled disco party, with the focus on creating a fabulous, festive and un pretentious party where everyone is welcome.. To begin the festivities, you can dine in the elegant restaurant from 2100, which on NYE will be hosted by sister club Lio, with their trademark cabaret show sure to set the place on fire, expect exotic dance routines, fine cuisine and amazing acrobatic shows, a perfect way to kickstart your evening. After the traditional midnight countdown, the party moves up to the main club, with Simon Morell and island resident Jaime Fiorito in charge of the disco ball vibe, Angel Linde & Sergio Mussa mixing it up with some harder techno vibes, and of course the night wouldn’t be the same without a visit to the legendary Funky Room, which will celebrate it´s 21st Anniversary in 2017, where the soulful soundtrack will be provided by Pacha stalwart DJ Pippi, and hosted by the imitable Vaughan, aka Africa..
