The origins of Privilege go back to the early 70’s starting as a restaurant, they then later added a bar and a community swimming pool and it was known as Club San Rafael.
Shortly after it changed ownership and was named KU. The club became the place to be, people that came entered a whole new world where the unusual, unexpected, and the outrageous were the norm. KU spiked a lot of interest world over, leading the video “Barcelona” of Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé being filmed in 1987.
In the early 90’s a legislation came in force stopping the big open-air parties, so many clubs had to cover their dancefloors. In 1995 the owner sold and the name changed to as we know it today. Privilege has been home to many famous parties, including Manumission for many years since 1994, and La Troya Asesina, then known as La Vaca Asesina.
Privilege is still known as the biggest club in the world, holding up to 10 thousand people and with a 25 meter high roof, and continues to bring some of the world’s greatest Djs. With the underground label Resistance you’ll find artists such as Carl Cox, Sasha and John Digweed.
