Have a fancy drink in Palma

As you already know we are #citylovers. Being located right in the beautiful and lively neighborhood of La Lonja it is very difficult not to be one. This city has a unique and special charm that continues to amaze us at BO Hotel day by day.

And all we want to achieve is offer you the Palma we love, the Palma we know and the Palma that makes us fall in love every day. So today we will give you three tips to enjoy a fancy drink around BO Hotel for you to soak up the amazing vibes this cirty blesses us with.

Dress up, walk out the reception at BO Hotel and head to:

1. Ritzino Bar, La Lonja

There’s no place you’ll find as spectacular cocktails as the Ritzino Bar. In addition to being located right across the street from BO Hotel, Ritzino Bar has become the meeting point for every #cocktaillover there is in town.

Cristopher Di Gioia is the brilliant barman behind every creative cocktail you’ll find at Ritzino Bar. In addition to a wide range of classic, modern and contemporary signature cocktails, Ritzino Bar also offers a nice selection of freshly made Italian and Mediterranean tapas.

2. Abaco Bar, La Lonja

Less than a minute by foot away from BO Hotel you’ll find Bar Abaco. As son as you put one foot on this bar, you’ll feel like you suddenly got lost in another era. Back in the days when opluence and grandeur were what mattered the most, Abaco is one of Mallorca’s most famous and yet unusual bars. The bar is covered with fruits and flowers and has a very magical and unique romantic atmosphere. Loud classical music and tons of candlelights add to this rare ambience to get lost for a couple hours and enjoy a drink indoors or outside in the enclosed courtyard.

3. Bar Cuba, Santa Catalina

Going back to this era, we recommend you to visit Bar Cuba in Santa Catalina. Located in a colonial building this is a cafe, bar and club and definitely worth a visit. The sky bar is on the rooftop and is open during the afternoon, which makes it the perfect moment of the day to enjoy a cocktail with lovely views.

La Lonja

As you probably already know, BO Hotel is located right in the well-known ‘La Lonja’ neighbourhood. This is one of Palma’s most emblematic neighbourhoods because of its history, its location and its lively city life.

 

Today we would like to tell you how it all started, as this neighborhood was named after the building known as ‘La Lonja’. La Lonja or ‘Sa Llotja’ is one of the architectural Gothic master pieces standing in Mallorca. Mallorca’s merchant association commissioned the architect and sculptor Guillem Sagrera to design this public building back in 1426. The aim, apart from covering the everyday needs for selling and purchasing products, was to ennoble the merchant profession.

 

 

Therefore a large “lonja” or exchange/auction warehouse was needed; it was adorned with many statues, of saints and angels as well as striking architectonic features. It is a rectangular building with one single space, which is divided into twelve naves through peculiar columns with no base or capital. The shafts of the pillars rise up to the ceiling shaping the ribs of the vaults.

The building has been preserved and restored over the years only to become one of the most beautiful must-visit spots in town. Today, Palma de Mallorca’s La Lonja is the venue for contemporary art exhibitions. The streets surrounding the building have a very special and unique charm which was the first thing dragging our attention at BO Hotel. The very same building our hotel is located in was built in the 19th century combining its architecture with surroundings and living up to the impressive beauty of La Lonja. La Lonja is in a 30-seconds-walking distance away from BO Hotel, so go and have a look as soon as you’re strolling through the cobbled streets of our neighbourhood, as you will find its architecture to be truly imposing.

  • Es Baluard: The museum of modern and contemporary art in Palma not only possesses an astonishing collection, but also has a magnificent location. The BLD restaurant overlooks Palma’s bay and is a perfect spot to enjoy a lovely lunch, drinks in the afternoon or sunset-dinner. You’ll be able to walk to Es Baluard and be there in only 6 minutes when staying at BO Hotel.
