After the success of the first Pacha Club in the seaside town of Sitges. Ricardo Urgell saw an opportunity for a similar venture on the Balearic Island of Ibiza. As Francos reign reached its end, Ibiza and Pacha were destined to become a hub for the free expressions of the hippie movement and glamorous hedonists of Spanish society.
The building was designed and decorated by Ricardo Urgell and longtime friend Jorge Goula and was built in 1972-1973. They decided to design it using the typical Mediterranean style with its characteristic simplicity and whiteness, flat roofs and small windows. Like Ibizan style houses, the building has a central mainroom with all the other rooms adjacent and terraced, allowing for the organic feel that exists and allows for seamless growth.
Pacha was the only building on the far side of the harbour, with the beach coming up across the road. By night it was the only illumination across the bay. The original building contained 2 dance floors, a restaurant, terrace and garden and opened in May 1973. The music was programmed and played by Ricardos brother Piti Urgell.
The club immediately became a focal point for Ibizas diverse population, this diversity still exists today, with many of the revelers that came to the opening parties still regulars today. From the outset Pacha represented stylish hedonism and freedom of expressions. This was also mirrored in the clubs music, design and decoration. no expense was spared on throwing lavish themed events such as Hollywood parties, the infamous White Parties and the still popular Flower Power parties.
The 1980 brought with them more partygoers to Ibiza along with more competitors. A pool and garden were added at the back of the club to compete with the new open-air venues on the island. In 1983 the mainroom was extended to increase the capacity of the venue and allowed the venue to offer rooms with different ambiences and styles of music to cater for the diverse tastes of the island.
In the 1990s, the foreign invasion to Ibiza swelled, bringing with it a new interest in nightclubbing... the DJ. Pacha started to host foreign promoters and DJs, but still maintained its original ethos of tasteful hedonism and unrivalled quality. Some of the early promoters and DJs that performed there in the nineties include:
The new millennium has seen the same growth and approach as the last 3 decades. The same family is at the helm and their considerations are the same, yet their experience is vast. It is open all year, making it difficult to find anybody who knows Ibiza but not Pacha. Pacha still represents the same thing to Ibiza now as it did in 1973. Every year has seen some new change or altdration to the building, allowing it to be constantly dynamic and fashionable. The spirit of Pacha Ibiza has not stopped soaring yet.
If Ibiza is the melting pot of Europe, then Pacha is the eternal flame that has simmered the cauldron for the last 30 years.
