There’s an eclectic mix of lively bars and nightclubs to be found around Mallorca to accommodate its equally diverse clientele. From young holiday-makers to yachting millionaires and everyone in between, each person is catered for. Capital city Palma is the main hub, as it is lively all year round but beach resorts bring a whole new dimension to the nightlife scene on the island when they come alive in the summer months.
The Spanish like to party. As a rule, the party-goers on the island head to clubs after midnight and can be found dancing until the early hours of the morning. Don’t worry, though, there are plenty of beach clubs and bars serving your favourite tipples throughout the day and into the evenings.
Palma – Year-round partying
A city bursting with life 365 days of the year, Palma offers something for everyone when it comes to nightlife. So, whether you fancy a quiet drink somewhere with your better half or seek a crazy night out with friends, we promise that you’ll find everything you could want in this cosmopolitan city.
The locals in Palma enjoy a drink and certainly know how to party. Even if you are just wondering around the streets, you’ll stumble upon an abundance of local haunts that are open seven days a week. In the summertime, however, you cannot miss the buzz from the Paseo Marítimo with music blaring out from the mile-long stretch of bars and crowds of people overflowing onto the streets. There are also a number of British, Germans and Swedish in the city, so you have plenty of opportunities to rub shoulders with fellow expats if this is what you want. The vast number of yacht crews (or ‘yachties’) residing in Palma certainly keep the bars active throughout the year.
Beach Resorts – Summertime fun
Mallorca’s beach resorts liven up during the summer months. Within the notorious area of Magaluf, in the south-west of the island, you will find streets lined with bars and clubs geared for those looking to party until the early hours of the morning in the peak season.
Whilst Magaluf is going through a revamp to transform it into a family-friendly resort, there are still enough bars to keep people coming back for more. S’Arenal (or Playa de Palma) is also a hotspot for night owls looking for a party in the summer months, attracting mainly the German youth.
Marinas & ports – Luxury nightlife
The ports are quite lively in the summer months and tend to attract the affluent jet-setter type looking to splash some cash. Here you’ll find there are just enough late-night bars with the odd dancefloor to keep visitors of all ages entertained.
