Oozing vibrancy 365 days a year, the Mediterranean cosmopolitan city of Palma Mallorca is the real deal when it comes to hitting the tiles and dancing ‘till your feet drop off. As the sun lowers over the gothic Santa Maria cathedral, witness the medieval streets and public squares come alive as the locals come out to play. Get your glad rags on and join in the fun with this seven day guide to the perfect Palma de Mallorca party experience.
Begin your week of Mallorca nightlife with a bang at a blues night in Hotel Saratoga. Blue Jazz Club, on the top floor of the hotel looks out over Palma Marina and is bursting with atmosphere. Have a relaxed cocktail, take in the views and get ready for the show to kick off at 8pm. Feeling brave? On Mondays it’s a free for all - anyone can take centre stage and join in with the improvised jam session.
Avoid the tourists and venture in to the old town for a night at Moltabarra, the place for pintxos. This local favourite has plenty of seating and room to hit the dancefloor after a few reasonably priced cocktails and a ridiculous amount of tapas tasting. With the interior of this place somewhat replicating that of a traditional Mallorca home, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. Don’t miss out on an authentic evening of getting to know the natives in the heart of Palma!
Carrer del Pes de la Farina
Now that the week’s in full Palma de Mallorca party swing, head to Agua Bar where they claim to have the best music. With a laid-back, pleasant atmosphere, this bar offers a fun night rocking out to music’s greats, cheap beer in hand. Tucked away in the streets of La Llonja, the place has a cool aesthetic, reasonable prices and quality entertainment. Sounds like a winner, right?!
Carrer de Jaume Ferrer, 6
Start the weekend early with classy cocktails in the La Llonja area where you’ll find a maze of traditional narrow streets and an intimate ambiance. Experience authentic Palma de Mallorca at night and visit Bar Abaco, an unusual little spot offering delicious cocktails albeit with a slightly hefty price tag. The décor offers a nod to the history of Palma Mallorca with its church references floral arrangements, aged furniture and marble statues. Not to be missed!
Calle San Juan
Kick off the weekend at one of Palma Mallorca’s best clubs, TITO’S. With its unmistakable large neon pink sign, you know you’re in for an experience before you even pass through the doors. Renowned as one of Europe’s best clubs, you can expect all styles of music across three dance rooms and performances from international DJ’s and artists. Take the panoramic glass elevators to the fifth floor VIP lounge for views over Palma Bay and the Cathedral of Mallorca. Expect costly entry fees but it’s worth it for a night to remember!
Avinguda de Gabriel Roca
There’s no rest for the wicked on this island so you’d better dust yourself off and get ready for round two. Saturday night you’ll want to be hitting the neighbouring Santorini Club. On the same strip of Paseo Maritimo, this club is arguably one of the most fashionable and recognisable club brands in the Balearic islands. A change of scenery from TITO’S with its terraces and interior but offering much the same vibe, this club has three rooms featuring house and funk music with special appearances from international artists. A favourite amongst the hipster community, boasting a loyal crowd and arguably the best Palma de Mallorca party on the block, this is certainly another one for the list!
Avinguda de Gabriel Roca
After a heavy few nights, there’s no better place to spend your Sunday than on the white sands of Nikki Beach. With its oceanfront beach club and cocktail bar, you can still keep the party going but at a more low key, chilled pace. Sip frozen margaritas in between poolside meals or gorge on their ‘Amazing Sundays Champagne Brunch’ which features imaginative cocktails, international cuisine and of course, the finest Champers! Before you leave, head to the third floor patio to take in the unequalled views of the Med.
Avenida Notario Alemany 1 Calvia
