A guide to nightlife in Paguera

Close to Magaluf, Paguera has fewer big clubs, but still has lots of lively venues to try. The main boulevard, which runs parallel to the seafront, is full of cocktail lounges, karaoke bars, live-music venues and also has a few clubs. Lots of nationalities mingle on nights out here and everyone is welcome to join in the fun. The area is popular with German tourists so some of the bars have German names but there are also British-owned pubs if you want a taste of home.

Rhythm and blues at Puerto Rico Music Club

The live music programme at Puerto Rico Music Club means you’re in for a good night every Thursday and Saturday. The Thursday night bands play genres including blues, rock, R&B, reggae and funk. Or on a Saturday night you can hot-step it in salsa dancing classes to the beats of a Latin DJ.

Swinging beats at Rendezvous Disco

Furnished in a retro 1960s style, Rendezvous has been going for nearly that long – 40 years in fact. It plays international music from the last four decades including pop, R&B, Rock and Latin and mainly attracts party-goers aged between 30 and 60. In the cool garden live Spanish and chart music is played until 11.30pm.

Apt naming at Cocktails & Drinks von A bis Z

This small and inconspicuous establishment only has one barman – and this creates a very personal atmosphere. Tourists returning to Paguera often head back here to get perfect drinks with every detail covered. For a classic drink, the Mai Tai is recommended, or try the house special Vanilla Grape for something a little different.

Sports and more at Cocktailbar Zebra

This safari-style cocktail bar mixes expertly-blended drinks with sports. As well as showing matches on the big screens, you can take part in darts or billiards. Choose from either comfy seats inside or an outdoor terrace with sea views.

Late night antics at PGM Pygmalion Nightclub

The small but fun PGM Pygmalion club is situated on the long shopping street behind the promenade. It’s open from 11pm to 6am so arrive early for Happy Hour or late if you want to be dancing until sunrise. The DJ is a firm fan of house music, so you’re guaranteed banging beats all night long.

Glamour and fashion at Brassai

Another venue that’s hot on its house music is Brassai. Make sure you dress your best to fit in with everyone else and get past the doorman. If you’re celebrating you can reserve a private area of the club.

Sizeable servings at Balihai Hawaii Bar

The large cocktails at this Hawaiian-themed bar help the karaoke flow from 9pm every night. There isn’t a cocktail menu as the bartenders know the drinks by heart and can make you whatever you wish. All of them are presented in decorative cups with lots of trimmings.

A second holiday at Alpina Bar

You can’t miss the theme at this bar, decorated in red and white and adorned with the Swiss flag. As well as a selection of soft and alcoholic drinks, you can also grab a light bite here, from waffles to toasties. Take the opportunity to catch the big game on their screens, listen to live music and learn to play the Swiss card game Jass. You’ll feel like you’re in The Alps in no time.

Hawaiian times at Waikiki

Although it’s open for daytime coffees or evening drinks, Waikiki is first and foremost a cocktail bar, serving well-priced and well-executed drinks. Its outdoor bar is surrounded by a dramatic straw canopy keeping customers cool and adding to the Hawaiian theme.

Grab a bite at Mar y Mar Restaurant and Beach Bar

Primarily a restaurant, the situation of Mar y Mar right on the beach makes it a stunning place to sit and enjoy a drink in the evenings. They also put on dancing shows later on including after-dark fire twirlers.
