The first Pacha club opened in the beach town of Sitges in 1967 and first expanded to Barcelona and the Catalan coast.

Ricardo Urgell, born in Barcelona in 1937, is the founder of Grupo Pacha. He is the grandson of Modesto Urgell. When Urgell was twenty years old, he started a water-ski school in Sitges.
He then opened his first bar ‘Tito’s’ in the same town.
The name „Pachá came from a remark made by Marisa Cobos, Urgell’s first wife, who told him that with the money he was going to earn, he would be living like a Pachá (an Arabian Prince). The first Pacha club was Pacha Sitges, which Urgell founded together with his brother Piti Urgell.
In 2002, the Spanish Government decided to award the Gold Medal of Merit for Tourism to Ricardo Urgell.
Pacha Ibiza opened in 1973 and is the earliest superclub in Ibiza.
Built in Ses Feixes and facing Ibiza Town, Pacha was designed to resemble a farmhouse. The club was featured in the 2004 film It’s All Gone Pete Tong and has capacity of 3,000. From 1998 to 2017, Pacha Ibiza was the venue for the DJ Awards.
