    Bar Abajo: The Best Cocktails in Sumptious Surroundings

    by amapola66 Updated May 1, 2007

    Two suited & bow-tied gentlemen greeted KB and I and ushered us through the giant wooden doorway into the most amazing old 17th century former aristocrat's house, which is now a palacial bar...I had been here before, but not for a long while...

    Everything (except the chairs, apparently) is antique and the place is filled with the most enormous and stunningly wonderful fresh flower arrangements and mountains of fresh fruit are piled on the floor. The weekly flower bill is supposed to be astronomical.

    A big sweeping staircase winds down to a bar piled with fruit, flowers, statues, sculptures, paintings and the like...wherever you look, there is something interesting to feast your eyes on.

    We wandered around the whole house taking our drinks with us - it is like a museum or stately home, except you are allowed to temporarily 'live' there - you can even view the kitchen where fresh veg is laid out daily.

    Wander out onto a balcony and view the courtyard where you can sit and sip your cocktail amid plants and bird cages -
    It's just so camp, it hurts!

    The drinks are very expensive (14 Eu & up) but there is no entrance fee and as I say, it is like a palace, and you can sit and drink wherever you like. One cocktail is usually enough anyway!
    (If you want a cheaper option, you can sit at the bar and have a beer, but why, when there are so few places like this to have a drink in?)

    Go for midnight Friday night and you will witness the "Rain of Roses"..(get a table on the ground floor near the fireplace).

    I shall say no more, but you must visit at least once, dress up and be seen ; )

    Dress Code: Elegant. (there used to be a much stricter dress code in previous years I have visited this bar - it's a shame to see people arriving in shorts these days, and it spoils it - although most people dress up).

    One of my favourite bars in the world.

    You are not allowed to take phtots unless you are a professional photographer and ask permission. I think the owners just don't want people snapping away merrily with flash photography, I mean daaahling, it would just ruin the ambience of the place ; )

  • Villa Barbara Hotel: The Cold Shoulder

    by Britain Written Apr 11, 2007

    The Villa Barbara Hotel, Can Picafort, Mallorca. My husband Stan and I were ignored when requesting breakfasts for ourselves and our two children. The new owner who is moroccan was rude and told us he was too busy to serve us. The rooms although looking pretty were freezing cold, hot water was unavailable. There were no staff to hand that we could see. The front entrance is through a kebab shop which is crowded and stuffy. We were most disappointed and would not recommend it to anyone. We opted for a hostel further along the street and were really pleased with that.

    Maybe the owners are new but a bit of common courtesy would have been nice. Another english couple sitting outside were also going elsewhere.

    Abaco: Magical time at Abaco palace

    by Ipanema_Princess Updated Jul 17, 2006

    I'm in love with Abaco !
    I think this is one of the most georgous and romantic place I have ever been...

    In the old town of Palma, push the big wood door and enter a universe of pure luxury and charm. This old palace has been restored and transform into a cocktail bar. But it not just a bar ! Just like in a fairy tale, you will discover an incredible decoration with fruits, flowers and candles all over the place. A lovely patio with a fountain, where you can enjoy giant cocktails or ice creams listening to the most beautiful opera tunes. Just like in heaven !

    Even if you don't want to have a drink, you can enter and have a look to the place. Don't be intimidated ! Go upstairs to see the beautiful living room and kitchen. A must see !!

    Average price is around 15 €. Opened every night from 9 PM to 2 AM.

    Dress Code: No particular dress code required. But a bit classy would be better if you want to match with the beauty of the place.

    Plaza de las Tortugas or Plaza Rei Joan: Meeting point at night

    by russian_yaz Written Apr 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This plaza is a usual meeting point at night. Nearby are located good bars and restaurants where to have the first drink of the long night. Also, at the end of the boulevard where is located U'll find the Lonja del Comercio, surrounded with many bars and pubs. This plaza is great also to just seat and see people walking here and there. There are 3 restaurants to just seat, have some cafe and watch people going.

    Bodega Bellver: Good looking bar

    by russian_yaz Written Mar 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Maybe after a long walk or some hours listening jazz in the Barcelona Cafe U will want to rest for a while, drink something and taste some "tapas". Bellver bar is a good place to do so. Near all the bars usually everyone goes to drink and listen to music is a quiet place where to enjoy good service and taste some beers.

    Barcelona cafe: Jazz all night long

    by russian_yaz Written Mar 21, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    U like jazz? Well, then just go to Barcelona Cafe. Is a small place but with great ambience. Live jazz musicians perform each night. Some very well known, others maybe not so much. Just chek their schedule in the entrance of the bar.

    Dress Code: Casual, no shorts

    Antonio´s bar: The best flamenco music

    by russian_yaz Updated Mar 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Each day live flamenco music. Performed by good musicians and even some gipsies. The owner, Antonio, was a well known guitarrist player on the 50´s and 60´s and is not only the owner and the bartender, he also playsthe guitar. There are photos all over the walls that can show that, there´s a photo of him with Paco de Lucia...if U don´t know Paco, U souldn´t be reading this :) just joking... if you go to Bellver castle, U´ll for sure pass nearby, stop and take a break here.

    Many. many bars...for all tastes... Irish pubs, La Bodeguita del Medio as in Havana, arabian like bars, bars to see the futboll and many others. Almost in each corner U´ll find a bar, most of them have a TV to watch the futboll games, the national sport in Spain. Many in the historical center are well decorated and have nice ambient, good service and various offers

    Dress Code: Until now, I haven´t found any dress code in any bar

  • Hotel Brasilia: Live Music

    by DanaRau Written Jan 23, 2005

    It is the best live music on the island! The great band "Syndicate feat. Charles Rolle" are playing every night from 9 to 12pm except mondays. Andre on piano, Jimmy on Sax and Charles Rolle (he sang with The Platters, Four Tops and The Drifters) are a HIGH LIGHT in Mallorca! It's a must go for a jam session with jazz, soul and funk all night long.

    by hopesuzanne Written Aug 25, 2002

    La Lonja is filled with bars and small clubs, definitely the place to go for a night out in Palma.

    Dress Code: Anything goes...as a foreigner, it won't matter...typical club attire, such as that worn for a night out in the states is good.
