Winner of the Trip Advisor certificate of excellence two years in a row, this bistro serves up gastro food by day, offering reasonably priced, beautifully presented breakfast, lunch and dinner’s and then by night turns itself into a live music venue and a karaoke bar finishing at 4.00am.
Owner, resident DJ and all around entertainer Colin Sweeney warms up the crowd each night from 10.30pm, spinning the tunes and singing all the golden oldies, songs from Sinatra, Michael Buble, swing and motown, all the way through to modern day chart toppers. He has a large collection of karaoke choices and whist more than happy to sing the night away himself will gladly hand over the microphone to anyone who wishes to give it ago.
Nostalgia is a small venue but one of the liveliest late night spots in Puerto Pollenca, with a loyal die hard crowd who live for their karaoke favourites and Colin’s crooning, joined by holiday makers who tend return night after night throughout their trip for the atmosphere. The venue is small inside but that doesn’t stop the dancing from happening and it lends the place a cosy and friendly vibe, which is helpful if you’re planning to get up and sing your heart out in front of strangers.
If karaoke isn’t your idea of fun then you’re welcome to stop by and just sample their excellent draught beers, wine and spirit collections not to mention their cocktail menu. The staff here are friendly, efficient and helpful and will be more than happy to offer you drinks suggestions and cocktail advice. You can avoid the singing crowds inside if you so wish and take a seat on Nostalgia’s outdoor terrace to enjoy a quiet drink or two whilst you watch the events of the busy street unfold.
Set just off the main square Nostalgia Bar and Bistro sits across from an Irish bar and next door to an Australian one, both with well populated outdoor terraces, perfect for people watching and extremely convenient if you fancy a bit of bar hopping without moving very far at all.
Open from 10am every day except on Saturdays when they open at 6pm, the evening fun kicks off at 10.30pm until 4.00am every night so you have plenty of time to work up your courage, Dutch or otherwise, to get up there on the microphone. If that courage takes it’s toll on you, then head back to Nostalgia in the morning for one of their large and hearty fry up breakfasts - full English or Scottish available and guaranteed to sort you out after a heavy night.
If you fancy making an evening of it then stop by for dinner from 6.30pm and sample some of the international cuisine featuring Spanish and English favourites as well as some distinct Thai flavours and specials on throughout the week including their famous Sunday roasts. There is a children’s menu, on which all meals are €4.50 and come with soft drink and ice cream. If you fancy dinner in peak season it’s worth booking a table especially if you wish to sit in the air-conditioned interior where seating is limited but you’ll have a prime spot to watch the evening festivities unfold.
Head to Nostalgia if you love your golden oldies and fancy a night of good-natured fun in a friendly location. Rub shoulders with locals and holidaymakers and perhaps find your calling as a king or queen of karaoke, although Colin would definitely put up a fight for that crown!
