Get tickets in advance for a club instead of paying at the door. Its a lot cheaper and you get into the club a lot faster. Many bars sell tickets for various clubs.
A friend of ours befriended a bar manager who ended up selling him tickets to two clubs we were going to for half the price you would pay at the door!
And buy in bulk as well. You can haggle with the promoters that way and get better deals.
These clubs are in hot competition with one another, as they are directly opposite each other. Es Paradis has been established in San Antonio for over 25 years, whereas Eden has only just become a superclub having taken over from the old 18-30's dead zone Kaos in 1999. Es Paradis seems to be getting less than it's fair share of the big nights this year though, despite being a beautiful venue. Inside is white and glass with real plants growing around the railings. The main dance floor is circular and sunken into the floor and this is turned into a pool for water parties a couple of times a week. Very Greco-Romanesque in style...all pillars and balustrades. The club's full name Es Paradis Terranal means It's Heaven on Earth, and if Heaven did look like this, I wouldn't be disappointed. I'd expect the real Heaven to have a bit more toilet paper though!
Eden on the other hand has a darker, more cave like feel about it. It was originally designed on an Egyptian theme, and much of the feeling of being inside a pyramid remains. The funky room here consists of a decent sized room with two bars, and the music and the atmosphere is invariably better. One thing I noticed in 2002 is that the clubs were not at full capacity, and people went to the smaller areas to experience a party atmosphere. The main room has two dance floors, the back one of which fills periodically with foam depending on the night. Great....as long as you weren't planning on going straight to Space!
The main music policy in the superclubs is Hard House with Garage trying to find a foothold, but only really succeeding if they play Hard House! If you don't like Hard House either get used to it, find the funky room, or go to Sunset Strip!
Both of these clubs will cost you between € 25 - € 45 entry depending on the night! Eden does allow re-entry after 2.30am however.
Big clubs in Ibiza(Pacha, Privilege, Amnesia, Es Paradis)= Big Money. If you plan to do the island in style you'll need a serious amount of money. It's a big bonus if you get friendly with locals or bar owners here as they'll be able to get you free passes for some of the expensive stuff.
many of the smaller clubs and bars are excellent party spots aswell. starting your nights away from the main nightlife hotspots can make your money stretch a little further.
