Soul City - where the party's at

Venue: San Antonio, Ibiza

Date: 15th/ 16th July 2014

By Mark Devlin | 20 July 2014

It's standard procedure for the superclubs of Ibiza to talk of the fantastic atmosphere they generate. Certainly most are world-class spectacular ... but they sure do come at a price!  With club entrance alone often hitting the 50 or 60 Euro mark, and a single drink setting you back 20 - 25 Euros, two or three such nights out will easily eat up the average clubgoer's entire month's wages!

By financial contrast, however, there's Soul City. For the past 20 years, this fun and lively bar in San Antonio's West End has been packing in the punters, lured by the agenda of all shades of urban/ black music. And as any SC clubber will tell you, one thing that's never in short supply is atmosphere!

Black Sheep paid a mid-July visit, where Soul City veteran DJ Horse, alongside more recent residents, London's DJ Policy and New York City's DJ Uch, spent each night whipping the crowd into a gyrating and fist-pumping frenzy, with a slick, fast-moving blend of everything from hip-hop, R&B and dancehall, through to garage, UK Funky, bassline and everything in between. The venue has generated a real family feel among its regulars whose loyalty has seen off all contenders that have tried (and failed) to take on the SC formula. And all this for absolutely zero entry fee on the door!

Each year Soul City adds a few tweaks. In recent times, the DJs have mixed up video tracks which play out on screens around the bar. This year, SC has stepped up its social media game a few notches, with crowd pictures appearing on its Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp feeds within seconds. And if you're on the island on a Saturday, you can catch the Soul City DJs throwing down at an afternoon barbecue on Pinet Beach, adding great food and an al fresco experience to the mix. There's even rumours of a major bar refurb/ overhaul in the not too distant future!

Soul City is located in San Antonio's West End/. Further info available at http://www.digitalibiza.com/hosts/soulcity/
