Majorca is a popular Mediterranean vacation hotspot, attracting thousands of tourists on a yearly basis. Jam-packed in the summer, this beautiful island certainly isn't lacking where nightlife is concerned. Majorca has everything you could ask for in a bar and club scene.
Paseo Marítimo, Palma
One of the most popular areas to have a night out on the town in Majorca is the Paseo Marítimo area, located in the stunning capital city of Palma. Here, you will come across a variety of pubs and clubs along the promenade, next to the sea. Between the port of Palma and the cathedral are many nightclubs, great for those tourists who love to dance the night away. A must-be hotspot in this area is Tito's. A trip to Majorca won't be complete without a visit to this swanky, 3-level nightclub. Said to be the most famous in Palma, this nightclub has had the likes of Frank Sinatra and Liza Minelli partying here, back in its 1950's heyday. These days, Tito's has more of a student-union atmosphere, although hasn't totally got rid of its quirky, glamourous vibe - the professional dancers and other entertainment are sure to keep everybody happy. Popular with the younger club crowd, this is definitely the place to go if you are looking to party. Be ready to dance when you step into Tito's. Another great club nearby is Pacha, the world-famous nightclub that boasts the creme de la creme of clubbers, as well as A-List celebrities from across the globe. Club entry costs 15 Euro, and top-notch food is also available inside the building. The club itself is huge, and many well-known international DJ's regularly make their appearances in Pacha. For the tourists who are more into a quiet drink as opposed to a full-blown clubbing experience, a couple of good low-key bars to try in the area include Garito Cafe and Shamrock Fun Place.
Aside from the Paseo Marítimo area of Palma, the capital city is also home to plenty of other areas with the best night-time entertainment. Abacanto is one bar that is definitely worth checking out. If you are all for the 'weird and wacky' atmosphere, this is the perfect place for you. Abacanto features a unique, church-like interior decor throughout its multiple room layout. Each room is different and has its own one-of-a-kind ambiance, one of which being decorated with fresh fruit and veg! This bizarre bar is a must-see when visiting Palma.

La Lonja is considered as an area to visit for those who do not have any particular budget, and prefer the 'finer things in life'. A few of the more popular bars in this area are Bluesville, where visitors can sample the best live blues concerts, or Jazz Voyeur, an intimate jazz club with a cosy, friendly atmosphere.
