Lounge Bars and Night Life

The best places to have a cocktail, dance and enjoy the night on Mallorca!

Diverse and extremely popular, Mallorca’s capital, Palma has district areas renowned for its nightlife. Restaurants, bars and enjoying live music are all part of the city’s vibrant social scene. As you may or may not know, the Spanish nightlife differs greatly from that in other countries around Europe, events start later in the day, people take their time to enjoy their food and company. The social scene is a lot more important. So even if you live on the island or are a visitor, take your time to enjoy the little things… ‘When in Rome’ and all that.
