It’s Space Ibiza NY, an immense warehouse of sparkling things and unabashed gyration by way of Spain, opening tonight in Midtown West.
Just a few things to be aware of going in:
—You probably know this, but the Ibiza location of Space is arguably the most storied party spot on earth. Leo and Rihanna pencil it in whenever they can. So no pressure here.
—Any DJ worth their salt will turn up eventually, probably not always announced.
—They’ll be importing go-go dancers direct from Ibiza (they make up 45% of the island’s GDP).
—To come: a roof (next year, kids) and a basement lounge (soon).
