Many discos round the world hold foam parties. Others have an attached pool and do
regular pool parties, also called beach- or splash parties. It is a very good
possibility to soak your clothes within a gay atmosphere, because later the night
people will jump/fall into the pool. The foam cannons usually start around or at
exactly twelve a clock. Before midnight you can't find much wetlook there - only
music. There are plenty in Spain,Germany, USA, Mexico and I am sure in many more
countries. It is attractive for wet and messy travelers, because most are within
typical tourism areas like Ibiza, Mallorca, Florida or big towns as New York. I will
start with a list of these Discos in Spain and Germany with a short description. If you
know more, just let me know. I'll add.
It gets very wet when foam pours out of the foam machine at Discothek "Amnesia"
(Ibiza Town) or the traditional water parties in "Es Paradise" (San Antonio at the
harbour - Travesia Dr. Flemming) starts. The water parties at Es Paradise is called
"Fiesta del Aqua" and takes place on Thursdays and Fridays. Entrance fee is 3000 pts -
about 25 US$.
Half way between San Antonio and Ibiza town is the small village San Rafael. The
swimming pool of the local disco "Privileg"(earlier "Ku") is the biggest of the whole
island and is better known than the Village itself. That gigantism of wetlook fun you
have to pay with an entrance of about US $40.
If you are looking for a cheaper alternative: Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays
foam parties are held at the discothek "Kiss" (Ibiza Town) Entrance pts 2500 to 3000.
About US $15.
If you've had enought of tecno, take a drink at the Beachbar "The Bull Bar" right
at the beach Playa de'l Bossa - Ibiza town. The prices for drinks are quite reasonable
and the music is mixed (tecno-free) . At the stroke of midnight on Sunday, the foam
machine starts to pour for about half an hour. Different from the big discos, the
machine woun't run the night through, but it is enough to soak your clothes over with
foam. Then, people will wash out the foam a few steps further - in the open ocean. All
this fun at absolutely free of charge.

There is a club in the Gaslamp District (historic downtown) called 'the Blue Tattoo'
which holds foam dancing every Wednesday night. There doors open at 8:00 and admission
is free until 9:30. At 9:15 you find about two feet of foam already on the dance
floor, with more foam working it's way out of the three pipes suspended over the dance
floor in a slow continuous ooze.
The club's twenty- and thirty-something crowd is an eclectic one, composed of all
types in all types of dress. There is a predominately straight crowd, but you'll
notice several "same sex" dance couples - both female and male. Still - probably it is
the draw of the foam rather than any sexual connotation which call those couples to
The bar is fairly standard, in an older building on the basement level. The music
is good, live DJ running risque contests and playing enough different types of dance
music to keep everyone happy. They serve beer, wine and mixed drinks and offer drink
specials throughout the evening. The Blue Tattoo's cover charge after
9:30 is $5.00, and they were running $2.50 "well" drink specials all night.
