Nightlife in the area of Pollensa

The old town of Pollensa enjoys an eclectic nightlife ranging from timeless and authentic "Mallorquin cuinas" or Mallorcan kitchens, to modern jazz bars and high quality restaurants. Around the main square there are a number of local café bars with lots of seating spilling onto the cobbled plaza whilst the narrow streets offer numerous hidden restaurants and the odd cocktail bar.
The atmosphere is generally laid back and relaxed and not too late unless you are lucky enough to be there during the local fiestas in early august when the party seems endless and fills the streets.
