Palma offers a great variety of rooftop bars, perfect for enjoying some spectacular scenery with a sundowner in hand.
Palma is a great city-break destination, not only because of its world-renowned monuments and museums, charming old town and gourmet restaurants, but also because it offers plenty of elevated spaces in which to soak up the sunshine.
Palma’s bars and restaurants offer a huge variety of delicious tipples to sip on, with everything from divine, local and organic wines, imaginative and seasonal cocktails, enormous fish-bowl gin and tonics, and of course, a simple but deliciously cold, thirst- quenching beer. With a wide range of elevated venues to choose from, here’s our guide on how to perfectly pair your drinks with Palma’s best rooftop haunts, upon trendy terraces, amidst glorious architecture and usually with knockout sunset views
Hostal Cuba Sky Bar
Located at the edge of the trendy area of Santa Catalina, the Hostal Cuba Sky Bar is a trusty favourite for many. Having made its mark in recent years, as one of the more sophisticated venues within the hip city district, its undoubtedly a great choice in which to start your night.
