Privilege Ibiza is known as the world largest nightclub, according to the Guinness Book of Records, selected in 2003, with a capacity of 10 000 people!
Like most of Ibiza clubs, also Privilege was founded in the early ‘70s, first as a restaurant, and than, including a bar and a swimming pool became a Club San Rafael, because of its location which is close to the small village San Rafael. In 1979 the club was sold to the “Real Sociedad” footballer José Antonio Santamaría, with the creative team of Brasilio and Gorri, changing the name in KU. In the ‘80s KU had a reputation of a predominately gay place – compared with the famous club Studio 54. After changing the owner in 1995, the name of the club was changed in Privilege.
The club hosted the biggest and one of the world’s most famous parties. In the middle of the club is the Main Room which looks like a huge hangar, while the other parts are projected layered – in levels, so you can explore this huge space for hours. The part named Vista Club, projected as a pyramidal glass structure, is a favorite part for those who adore house and techno music, enjoying at the end in spectacular dawns, with beautiful views of Ibiza Town.
Privilege was the “witness” to numerous events, happenings and scandalous sex shows, especially during its KU period, in the ‘80s. The first early live performances during the KU period were related to the groups such as Spandau Ballet, Kid Creole and the Coconuts. In 1987 Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé filmed the video inside the club for their song “Barcelona”. The Channel 4 presented the club during its KU period in a documentary called “A Short Film about chilling”, and KU was labeled as “the mirror of Ibiza”.
Other famous live performances were made by: Adamski, Divine, Duran Duran, 808 State, Gloria Gaynor, Grace Jones, James Brown, José Feliciano, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), Sylvester, and the famous persons that had been visiting the club for a decades were Boy George, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Jean Paul Gaultier, Joni Mitchell, Led Zeppelin, Moschino, Tina Turner, Valentino. It is a very impressive number of celebrity names.
The club is seen in the online racing game Test Drive Unlimited 2, and it is mentioned in the film Kevin & Perry Go Large.
