Space Ibiza closing – the end of the world as we know it (but we feel fine!)
Well the day has finally come, the end of an era is upon us as Space Ibiza closes it’s doors for the last time.
Space Ibiza has always played a huge part in the steamy Ibiza summer, with most clubbers agreeing that the summer season unofficially starts and ends with the opening and closing of the venue each year.
The club was opened by Pepe Rosello in 1989, and over the last 27 years it has become THE iconic venue representing the best of what Ibiza has to offer to clubgoers all over the world. It still holds the record for the most awarded club worldwide, an achievement many clubs will be hoping to emulate with a potential gap opening up in the market.
The closing night was always going to be huge. Tickets sold out in a heartbeat despite prices of up to €100 a pop, and hyped crowds were queuing around the venue from the early evening.
It was an evening of mixed emotions as DJs and clubbers danced, smiled, laughed, and ultimately left with a lump in their throat and a tear in their eye.
This news also sadly brings about an end to the special relationship between Smiley and Space that has grown over the years. From the amazing Space Ibiza x Smiley clothing collection on sale in the club and a flagship pop up store in Ibiza airport, whilst Smiley product placements with world renowned DJs like Carl Cox and Felix Da Housecat were common. As was the venue being decked out in Smiley branding and massive hanging Smiley’s to encourage positive vibes, with Smiley promo teams handing out clothing, accessories, and stickers to partygoers to spread the message of happiness and positivity!
Don’t let all this get you down though, for a limited time you can still pick up Space x Smiley collection merchandise from Space Ibiza’s online store – grab yours now before it’s too late!
