The diversity of Magaluf nightlife is such that there is something for everyone. For the 18-30 crowd there are hundreds of bars and some of Europe’s best clubs and discos. For maturer visitors and families there are more laid back bar venues, many with excellent entertainment and a good selection of places to eat. Most of the nightlife is centred on the bars and clubs which are located along what is known as ‘the strip’. This is a hill called Punta Balena which runs from the main tourist information office in the town centre up to the hotel district of Torrenova.
It’s pointless to list all the bars along the strip as they often change owners between seasons and not everyone shares the same taste in bars. Just start at the top or bottom of the strip and go walkabout to find your own favourites often with the help of the endless number of PRs who will be trying to get you into their place.
Well known favourites that you can’t miss as you stroll along the strip include Lennons Pub which has a massive terrace and Chaplins Bar which is famous for its party games. The Lush Dance Bar is another top entertainment spot whilst The Office has become a regular stop for revellers. The Three Lions is always packed and Mulligans at the top of the hill is yet another top venue.
As well as the strip you’ll find plenty to amuse you actually down at the beach where there are numerous bars and restaurants open until late. Daquiris Palace do a fabulous range of frozen cocktails on their huge terrace overlooking the sea whilst. The Boatyard is a good British pub which is also on the beach and Linekers sports bar with its eleven giant screens is on a street just off the promenade.
On Avinguda de l’Olivera, the main street where the BCM nightclub is located, you’ll come across a good selection of more familiy orientated bars than you will on the strip. The enormous and ever popular Benny Hills is well known for good, clean family fun whilst the Boston Bar provides great entertainment for all the family. Mrs Doyles Irish Pub is Magaluf’s top Irish venue with live music from Mick the Fiddler. It’s just around the corner from Morgans.
Nightclubs in Magaluf
Magaluf clubs are well known on the European club circuit these days and attract well known DJs during the summer months including Judge Jules, Dave Pearce and DJ Sammy. These stars tend to rotate around the top venues guaranteeing packed houses with clubbers from all over the continent.
The largest and best known of the nightclubs is BCM Planet Dance which has space for 4000 people and is built on three levels. The top floor tends to attract a younger crowd dancing away to the latest sounds in the company of professional dancers and an amazing light and laser show. A middle floor is mainly frequented by a slightly older crowd whilst on the lower level is the Millennium club which is home to notorious foam and popcorn parties.
Outside there’s the BCM square with a selection of bars and seating areas where non-dancers can enjoy the action. The entrance fee gets you into the club, a load of freebies and includes free drink for the rest of the night within the club complex or at the BCM Beach Bar which is at the bottom of the strip. It’s open from 10pm until 6am. Take a look at the BCM Magaluf website.
Poco Loco is another top venue which claims to be the resort’s best disco party pub. They have their own resident British DJ who keeps the crowds bopping on the large dancefloor until the early hours. Very popular with stag and hen groups all kitted out in fancy dress. Check out any special offers of the day with the PRs. Good selection of music and drinks tend to cost no more than standard bars. Boomerangs, Fusion and Bora Bora are other top venues whilst Heaven is a popular lapdance club.

One final place that deserves a special mention for anyone researching Magaluf nightlife is the Pirates Show. This is a must for anyone visiting Magaluf.
