5 hottest bars in Mallorca
Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark.
Puro Beach
A club for the cool crowd
Not just a nightspot, Puro Beach is an all-day experience. Located just 5 minutes from Palma airport, it’s perfect for pre- or post-flight relaxation by the pool. Sip a cocktail and snack on food on the terrace or in the lounge, come for Sunday brunch or chill out after a spa treatment. With its stunning white loungers and 180-degree views of Palma Bay, there’s nowhere better to relax to the sounds of great DJs from early afternoon until late into the night.

For cocktails with drama
There’s nowhere in the world quite like Abaco. Set on a side street in the centre of Palma’s Old Town, it transports you to the world of 17th-century Mallorca from the moment you walk in. Decorated with amazing, huge displays of fruit and vegetables, opulent candelabras and ornate sculptures, it has a theatrical feel compounded by its creative cocktail list. Sip an Abaco special or a classic Manhattan, sitting back on the outdoor terrace on a sunny day or simply soaking up the museum-style grandeur.

Old-style Spanish sophistication
Sister nightspot of Abaco, Abacanto is an even larger, grander version of the original. Located in an industrial area on the outskirts of Palma, it is a huge church-style venue with extensive grounds, giving it a surreal vibe (especially after a few cocktails). The cobbled floor is sprinkled with petals and leads to an array of rooms – from secluded spots for couples, to an area decorated with fruit and vegetables, Abaco-style. Unique and beautiful, this place will make you feel like royalty.
Camino de Son Nicolau s/n, 07009 Sa Indioteria, Palma de Mallorca
Tel: 34 971 70 32 35 www.virtualclub.es

An all-day extravaganza
Modern décor and a relaxed ambience make Virtual an oasis of a beach club for those who like to get away from the crowds. Pay for your sunbed overlooking the bay from Illetas and you can lounge in the sun all day, drinking chilled beers and crafty cocktails and dining on anything from toasted sandwiches to lobster linguine. And with the dark of night comes the magic of the nightclub in a natural cave – dance to your heart’s desire to the beat of the latest live music and old classics.
