When you think of celebrity clubs from the 1980s, Club 54 in New York comes to mind.
However, one nightclub in Ibiza called KU had over 20 bars on its premises and was a frequent party spot of Grace Jones, Divine and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
The nightclub photographer Derek Ridgers has unearthed some of the club’s best shots from 1984, when he was visiting the Spanish party island.
“It had the reputation of being the biggest and best club on the island. You might even have been able to say it was the biggest and best club in Europe,” says Ridgers to Dazed, who published his rarely-seen photos this week. “It was almost like a James Bond film set… I’d never seen anything like it.”
