With summertime just a few months off, it’s time to start thinking about where you’ll spend your holiday this year. If you’re looking for a place where you can spend long days in the sunshine and even longer nights partying until the sun comes up again, consider these three ultimate party destinations, where you can live life to its fullest:
Ibiza’s is the world’s premiere summer party destination. There, the big parties start in the month of May and rage on all the way through September. There are seven major clubs on the island—Amnesia, DC10, Eden, Es Paradis, Pacha, Privilege, and Space, each featuring programming seven nights a week to give tourists the ultimate party experience. Tickets for opening nights at these clubs are already available, and Avicii and David Guetta have both confirmed residencies at Ushuaia starting June 30 and July 1, respectively, of this year. Can’t wait until nightfall to get the party started? No problem. The famous Bora Bora beach bar on Playa d’en Bossa holds all-day electronic dance parties, while the Sunset Strip in San Antonio is home to several lounge bars where you can get your pre-club drinks. You can find some cheap holiday deals at party hotels like Ibiza Rocks and Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel if you book before the wave of clubbers begin to arrive on the island.
Forming part of the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea, Mykonos is a paradise for the beach-going/clubbing crowd, boasting over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and intense nightlife that carries on well into the morning hours. Mykonos Town is home to bars with balconies and terraces that stay open late, while Paradise Beach and Super Paradise beach are where you’ll find the all-night dance parties at clubs like Cavo Paradiso and Paradise Club Mykonos. These parties actually start around 4PM, so get ready for a double shift at the clubs when you’re in Mykonos! Restaurants like Kavos stay open late as well to accommodate the clubbing crowd.
What better place to celebrate the season than in a place where the sun never really sets during the summertime months–Reykjavik? Thick curtains attempt to block out the sunshine in the bars and clubs, but you’ll still be stepping out into daylight no matter what time you finish drinking. The city of Reykjavik is home to over 100 bars and clubs, most of which are concentrated on Laugavegur and its surrounding side streets. Since most bars and clubs do not charge a cover to enter, it is common to do a little bar hopping during prime drinking hours. Theme bars are popular in Reykjavik, with the Lebowski Bar, Bjarni Fel sports bar, the Celtic Cross, Den Danske Kro, and The English Pub being particularly popular places to spend an evening. In terms of clubs and live music venues, Dillon Rock Bar, Kaffibarinn, NASA, and Bakkus are some of the most infamous party spots in the city. While bars are typically only open until about 1AM on weekdays, parties rage on until about 5AM on Fridays and Saturdays.
