Need some new cool Ibiza hotspots? If you're bored of the same old places, Circo Loco residents System Of Survival fill us in on their top 10 secret places to hang out in Ibiza. From furniture warehouses to tattoo shops there seems to be no Ibiza stone that these guys have not yet turned over. Alex and Bingo talk to Pulse HQ ahead of their upcoming headline show at Reurn To The Future Vol.3 with fellow Circo Loco resident Clive Henry.
System Of Survival: Our favourite top 10 of places we love that not everybody knows about.
Shardana, Playa D'en Bossa
It's a bar, restaurant, hang-out where our crew practically live. Basically our family... If Ibiza is home, then Shardana is the living room. We've all grown up together here and we spent a lot of time together, even though the guys have moved from their old bar Noctambula in the port, the spirit of the crew is here.
Picaro, Playa D'en Bossa
Shardana's little sister. Really nice friendly bar opened by some other friends of ours in playa D'en Bossa. Can also feel at home here.
Croc, Carretera Santa Gertrudis
It's a really cool modern art & furniture shop. We're quite homebodies in our own way – especially in winter, we hibernate inside the house so quite like a bit of browsing.
Inkadelic Tattoo, Ibiza Town
Our good friend Neil Ahern is an amazing artist. (Bingo is kind of addicted)
Sluiz, Santa Gertrudis
Crazy big warehouse shop of interesting (and quite expensive) things for the home and decoration. Can spend hours in here.
Second Hand Furniture Warehouse, behind Hipercentro
Not even sure if it has a name, but it's this great warehouse where they collect furniture that people want to throw away. It's great. We buy mad shit from here and spend the winter doing up pieces for the house. Trying to make them look like pieces from Sluiz. Restyling...kind of.
Need to add anything else? Worth the walk. But still an effort.
Marina Botafoch (in winter)
Bingo has taken up longboarding....and I have a BMX. We're almost sporty in winter.
Thankfully this place isn't for everyone but we love it. We play here in the summer around once a month, but hang out here a lot. It just has a real Ibiza vibe still, which is impressive. It didn't change at all.
DC10 –The Backstage
It's where everything happens nowadays. I think for the closing we spent nearly all day in the same spot just hanging out with whoever was passing by us. They actually built an extension for the closing. We're just waiting for the extra sound system to be set up out there.
