The Paseo Marítimo is located at the south of the city Palma de Mallorca. Its official name is Avenida de Gabriel Roca and the street runs all the way from Playa de Palma at the east to Portopí at the west. This adds up to a total length of 5500 meter. The stretch along Palma’s yate port is famous for its nightlife and one of the best addresses for clubbing in Palma de Mallorca and on the island. For about one kilometer you will find a variety of bars, clubs, pubs, restaurants, and discos one next to the other.
The good thing is, that you will find different ambiences, music styles and crowds. A salsa club may be next to an Irish pub, a huge electronic dance music disco next to a small bar playing commercial music. Restaurants range from fast food, to Italian pizza and pasta to Indian food and German currywurst. The Paseo Maritimo offers everything for a good night out. It starts early in the evening with a nice dinner and goes on until late into the early hours of the next morning. It is the usual place for the Mallorcan youth to go out at the weekend. In order to have a typical Mallorcan night out, do it like them and bring your own alcohol. Normally around 12 p.m. Mallorcans gather at the other side of the road by the water and have their first drinks brought from home, which is called ‘botellón’. They do not enter the clubs before 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., so expect empty clubs before that hour.
One of the most famous clubs are ‘Tito’s Palma’ and ‘Pacha Mallorca’. Tito’s is one of the oldest clubs you can visit at the Paseo Marítimo. In the 50ies well-known artists like Frank Sinatra and Marlene Dietrich have come here to present their songs and to hold concerts in this glitter and glamourous atmosphere. You will enter the club through the elegant glass front and a glass elevator brings you to the dancefloors. The club extends over three floors and has impressive panorama windows which give you a spectacular view over Palma’s port by night.
‘Pacha Mallorca’ reopened its doors again a few years ago inside the same building where it used to be before. Here you will obviously find the typical Ibiza vibe and lots of chill-out and electronic dance music. Another famous address is ‘Garritos’ at the far west end of the Paseo Marítimo. It is a nice bar to grab a beer and to hang out with your friends while listening to a live concert. At the far east you will find the famous ‘Hard Rock Cafe’ of Palma de Mallorca. As a worldwide known brand, it is a nice place for some American food and to enjoy some amazing cocktails before hitting the dancefloors of the other clubs. Most of the other well known and busy clubs and bars center around Tito’s and everything is easily reachable by foot – well maybe not if your heels are too high.
You can get there by bus, the Paseo Marítimo is frequented by the lines 1, 15, 23, 29, 30 and 31. The nightbus has the number 41 and runs from around midnight until 6 a.m.
