What to Expect in Majorca
If you want to experience clubbing abroad then Majorca should be on your To Do list as it includes the biggest venue in Europe. This Spanish island is packed with clubs, as well as bars and pubs to start the night in, and there's something for everyone's taste. Whether you want dance, house, garage or indie music, choose Majorca and you won't be disappointed.
Clubbing Spots You Shouldn't Miss
- BCM in Magaluf is at the top of the clubbing league. Each floor has a slightly different vibe, whether you want a laser show on the top level or a foam party in the basement. 2012 saw BCM taking part in the Mallorca Live festival, with a line up including Rizzle Kicks, Example, Labrinth, Tulisa and Calvin Harris.
- Mallorca Rocks Hotel is the venue for four months of live gigs and DJ sets every summer, as well as daily pool parties and weekly silent raves. The 2013 line up features Jake Bugg (4th June) and will see Example and DJ Wire taking up an 11-night residency spread over the festival. You can stay in the hotel and be right at the heart of the action, with main event entry included as standard in your deal with easyJet Holidays.
- Menta in Alcudia has an amazing seven bars to choose from and an indoor pool inside the club. It's popular with the under-30s crowd and hosts foam parties every Thursday.
- The Black Cat in Palma City is one of the most well-known gay clubs. There are live shows every night as well as DJs, and it doesn't close until 5am.
- Pacha Mallorca is part of the Pacha group and it's often packed out, particularly in the middle of summer. You can party here until 6am.
Money-Saving Tips for Clubbing in Majorca
- Tito's in Palma has an admission price of €15 but this includes two drinks in the price. The club is entered by a very cool glass lift at the Paseo Maritimo entrance and there are gogo and flamenco dancers inside!
- The Magaluf Club Pass, or MCP, is worth considering if you don't like staying in one club all night. With just one stamp, the pass will get you entry to five different clubs: Boomerang, Bananas, Tokio Joe's, Honey's and Buffalo's.
- If you want to attend Mallorca Rocks but save cash then book into the Mallorca Rocks Hostel, which is cheaper than the main hotel and just 500m away from it. You still get entry to all of the events. Your Hostel rep can also give you discount clubbing tickets, so just ask them!
Hotels for Clubbers
- Marina Barracuda Hotel is an adults-only choice that means you won't be sharing the pools with families. You're also just 100m from the beach and 400m from the main strip of clubs and bars in Magaluf. Perfect!
- The Lively Magaluf Hotel does what it says on the tin. During Happy Hour at the bar you can expect to pay just 80p a pint! You'll be 200m from the beach and there are lounge areas with widescreen televisions for catching up on those all-important sports matches. The reception is open 24 hours a day.
- Horizonte in Palma City is a cheap option that is close to the bay of Palma and the entertainment and shopping complex of Porto Pi. There's a pool, tanning studio and snooker facilities to keep you occupied in your downtime.
