Tucked away within Can Barbara, a small marina on the other side of the road from the main port along the Paseo Marítimo (closer to the cruise ships than the city centre), you might struggle to find Garito Bar & Club but you’ll always be happy when you do. Off the beaten track, this is your chance to party with the locals. Open since the 1970s, this establishment may be modest in size but it continues to bring the avant-garde youth through its doors thanks to its epic DJ sets and cool party vibe.
