Gallery: Checking in on Pikes Hotel's summer

The notorious Ibizan institution’s season in pictures.

Those who visit the mischievous Pikes, will all testify that the excitement never stops. During the day it offers a sanctuary for quieter pleasures and cocktail sipping, during the night it offers a devilishly decadent dance floor experience.

Decades of hedonistic stories tell of the cavortings of the hotel's clientele such as Grace Jones, George Michael and Freddie Mercury.

Since 2011, the Ibiza Rocks group took over management and turned the location into much more of a party venue that would please discerning music fans and committed raving types alike.

This summer has been no different, with fiesta collectives such as Melon Bomb, Flash and Tales of the Unexpected hitting Pikes' hallowed booth once again for electrically-charged nights of fun. DJ Dons such as Fatboy Slim, Bicep, Denis Sulta, Hunee and many others have dropped in for exclusive sets, often stacking the guest list full to the brim.

Head below to see how Pikes rocks your world in our gallery of some of the best moments from the 2019 summer season. After perusing those, look for the details of parties still to come in October.

If you have missed the chance to venture to Pikes for the summer, then have no fear, there are still a few chances left to hit the hotel in October. Ibizan DJing squad Homies wave goodbye to the summer on Friday 25, kicking off the final weekend.

On Saturday 26 it's a doubleheader with Paco Fernandez​ hosting Flamenco Nights from 20:00 in Room 39 and then later Artwork takes over Freddies from 22:00 for the final edition of Pikes House Party.

Last, by no means least, is the yearly Pikes Halloween special on Thursday 31 - this year titled A Dance With the Devil. Jam packed with harrowing characters and scarily good music, this night of costumed capering is not to be missed.
