La Lonja is also known as the Old Town which is the heart of the city’s nightlife. It’s probably one of the best places to go for a late-night bite to eat or heading out into some of the pubs, cocktail bars and sky bars. First up on our list is probably the most popular bar in La Lonja and the surrounding nightlife districts of Palma, Bar Abaco. This longstanding favourite is all about the Spanish culture, with ancient interior that focuses on art and local produce. The prices increase inside, but a slightly more expensive pint is so worth it for the memories this place will give you!
For something way more laid-back, try some bar nibbles and a local brew at Café la Lonja. This small bar is a great place to start your night, collect your bearings and line your stomachs with a bit of grub before you go full throttle! For a lick of the British charm in a Spanish setting, get yourselves over to The Tavern for a few drinks. This lively little pub will make you feel at home in no time, and is always busy on the weekends all the way up to closing at 3am.
Santa Catalina is an area that is bustling with people in the evening due to the vast amount of watering holes including late night bars. This region is made up of cocktail bars that focus on great drinks and a sense of style, while still being just as welcoming as La Lonja. If you’re on the hunt for super quirky décor and even crazier drinks, LAB Cocktail Bar is the ultimate watering hole in Palma. The cocktails here have a kick, and the bar is weird and wonderful inside. For something a bit more on the subdued side, Santa Catalina has you covered with Coupe cocktail bar. Slightly more expensive, you’re guaranteed to leave with a wobble in your step as these drinks are strong and very drinkable!
Is your groom to be a massive movie buff? He’s blend in like a charm at Atomic Garden, a blockbuster themed bar that’s full of hilarious references and unique IPA’s. You could spend hours reminiscing over your favourite films in this unique bar - pair that with a few drinks and you’ve got a winner. Last but not least, we’ve got to mention Cerveceria Tramuntana. One of Palma’s most well-known microbreweries, definitely pay this pub a visit if you’re a beer lover.
Paseo Marítimo is the area that has a buzz all night, full of restaurants and bars to start your night off in. This district of the city starts off with a low hum of hustle and bustle during the early evening and turns into a busy nightlife haven after the dark! A lot of people in Spain leave their last meal of the day until close to 9pm, so why not fill your bellies and then head off to the nearest bar in Paseo Marítimo! The perfect venue pull off this combo is the classic Hard Rock Café! You can’t go wrong with traditional American dishes and massive pints of beer, right lads?
For something a little more traditional to Spain, might we suggest you enjoy Mojito bar for a few? This spacious venue has ample seating, good quality service and even a pool table if you want to get a rally going through the evening! Speaking of rallies, it wouldn’t be a last night of freedom without a dip into a sports bar, and Hogan’s sports bar is the place to be in Palma. For all your footy catch up and electrifying atmosphere make sure Hogan’s in on your list to visit.
Nightclubs in Palma
You might be surprised by the amount of nightclubs that are hidden away around Palma, because there’s loads! Overall, the capital of Mallorca is definitely underestimated when it comes to late night venues that will make you dance. However, one infamous nightclub that’s a must is Tito’s nightclub. Named as an ‘International Club’, Tito’s is more on the pricey side but you definitely get what you pay for. Bright lights, big performers and unmatched events are all reasons why Tito’s is ever-popular with groups.
If a big night out at Tito’s doesn’t appeal to you, not to worry! Try Social Club Mallorca, a boutique club with a pretty impressive appearance. Once you’re drawn in, you’ll find multiple rooms to party in, plus an outdoor terrace when the evenings are warm, performers and events all year round. For a more intimate night out in a smaller venue, there’s always Kaelum club that will welcome you with open arms.
