Description: The island of Mallorca is well known for its exciting nightlife. Whether you’re a young traveler or a wealthy yacht owner, the mix of restaurants, nightclubs, and bars has something for everyone. Let’s check out some of the best places.

Mallorca’s capital, Palma, is extremely popular with its diverse and vibrant nightlife. There are restaurants and bars with live music for every taste, and they stay open all year long. But when the summer months come, you can also visit many beach resorts with their own bars, beach clubs, and nightclubs. And don’t forget the lovely villages on the island of Mallorca. They all have snack bars around the village square. Feel free to enjoy the local cuisine and chat with local people. Because that’s what the Spanish nightlife is all about: socializing.

Without further ado, let’s check our best places to enjoy the night on Mallorca. Ready?

La Lonja

One of the most popular areas in Mallorca is the neighborhood of La Lonja. Its narrow, charming streets are home to a variety of clubs, restaurants, and bars. 

If you’re looking for something intimate, then head down to the Jazz Voyeur Club. It’s a little bar with live jazz music every Thursday and Friday. A warm atmosphere is topped by a magnificent view over the town. Needless to say, the bar has an excellent selection of drinks. The servings are like always in Spain: generous. 

But if you need something completely out of the ordinary, step into the Abaco cocktail bar next door. It’s inside a 16th-century palace with an interior that could easily belong to a church. The surreal atmosphere with marble statues and antique furniture makes you feel like in another world. And if you happen to drop by on a Friday night, you can see the beautiful flower petal rain at midnight. 

The Center of Palma

A perfect place to start your evening is the Bimil Lounge in the center of Palma in Plaza Mercat. It’s a nice Asian fusion bar with a relaxed atmosphere. On a Thursday night, you can enjoy some live entertainment with unique drinks and snacks. 

Then there’s the Nicolas bar at the same square. If you need a restaurant on Mallorca with the best tapas, the Nicolas bar makes the tastiest ones. You can enjoy food and drinks while sitting on the terrace or inside, taking in the vintage-looking decor. 

The tradition of drinking vermouth is very common in Spain, and most tapa bars respect it. But for an ultimate vermouth experience, go to La Vermuteria Rosa at Carrer Rosa 5. It specializes in that mildly bitter drink and serves excellent tapas plates. Having a glass of vermouth before eating helps you grow your appetite and get you in an easy-going mood for dinner. 

Santa Catalina 

This old district that feels like a vibrant village is full of cool places to get a drink. There’s something for every taste: you can find stylish house clubs, classic diners, and even Irish pubs here. 

The Brooklyn Club at Carrer de Dameto 6 has DJ’s playing music at events all year long. It’s a perfect place to spend the night dancing. And if you’re more used to classic hits, then head down to Kaelum Club on Avenida Argentina. 

One thing you should know about bars in Santa Catalina: the parties on Saturdays have a unique pattern that caters to people over 30. Here’s how it works: the bars and clubs open early, around 4.30 pm. You can enjoy lunch with friends, then have some drinks, finish the evening with dancing, and get home before 11 pm. Just in time for a good night’s sleep.

The Only Casino in Mallorca

If you love gambling on vacation, then Mallorca doesn’t offer many options. There is exactly one casino on the island called Casino de Mallorca. But luckily, there’s a lot to experience there. You can play Blackjack, Stud Poker, or slot machines. American Roulette with colored chips is also available. 

The Casino Paladium Mallorca has been in business for over 30 years now, and the premises and technologies are recently updated. So, even if gambling is not your thing, you can visit the place in downtown Palma for a nice cocktail or an exciting event. The restaurant also has a great selection of dishes. 

It’s important to know that the casino has a dress code, and ignoring it can result in refusal of entry. Maybe you’re used to playing in online casinos in the privacy of your home. It’s completely okay to wear flip flops and shorts when sitting on your own sofa. But visiting an elegant casino requires gentlemen to put on a decent shirt and their best trousers. Ladies can go with a pantsuit or a knee-length skirt.

Arenal 

If you drive 15 minutes from the center of Palma to the east, you’ll come across a dynamic little village called El Arenal. It’s located on the south coast of Mallorca, at the Playa de Palma’s beach resort’s eastern end. El Arenal turns into a lively party area in the evening. If you’re there for only one night, make sure to step into Megapark, Arsenal’s most prominent club. 

Believe it or not, but at the end of every summer, the club hosts a truly German celebration: the Oktoberfest. If you love German beer, food, and the classic tunes associated with this Volksfest, then tag it to your plans for the next year. 

If Oktoberfest is not your type of party, then you can head down to the Purobeach restaurant and club. This place has become a true icon of sociability in Mallorca. Situated in a beautiful mini peninsula, it’s called an Oasis of Happiness for a good reason. You can sit in front of the sea and enjoy some of the island’s best sunset views while sipping a cocktail, of course. 

Puerto Portals

Puerto Portals is the place to visit if you’re looking to spot any celebrities on Mallorca. Some of the famous faces who might visit this glamorous spot during the summer are Brad Pitt, Bill Gates, and Paris Hilton. 

The marina offers over 650 berths, and if you’ve ever seen gorgeous pictures of Mallorca with numerous luxury yachts, they’re probably taken at Puerto Portals. 

Still, the port is not only known for things and people to see. Only a few minutes from the sea, you can find many unique places to eat and drink. Chameli’s restaurant is great for people who prefer a healthy and rich Mediterranean kitchen. Or, if you want to get a delicious burger before a party night, go to the Portals Kitchen Restaurant

Magaluf 

The Calvia resort of Magaluf has some of the best Mallorca beach clubs. If you have to pick only one to visit, that should be Nikki Beach. It’s an internationally celebrated club that offers exciting entertainment and dining in one place. Like any proper beach club, there are huge sun loungers that are perfect for hanging out while drinking cocktails. And once you’re in a good mood, live music shows will get you dancing in no time. 

South of the Island

On the Southeast coast of Mallorca, you can spend a joyous evening in the village of Portocolom. The cool thing is that during the summer, most bars and even restaurants stay open longer. If you’re with a bigger company, it’s important to choose a club that plays music for different tastes. The DJs at Farah’s club change every week and offer a wide range of different styles. Everyone can have an awesome night dancing. 

A bit more to the west, there’s the Colonia Sant Jordi. You can have a great meal in the evening and proceed with a night of dancing in most clubs here. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the beautiful surroundings make every night unforgettable.
