Menorca by Night: Bars and Venues

Menorca is famous for its laid-back vibe and stunning natural scenery; this doesn’t mean, however, that visitors will be left twiddling their thumbs in their villas as soon as the sun goes down.

There are dozens of cool, charming and quirky local spots around the island where you can enjoy late-night beverages, live performances and dancing late into the night. 

All That Jazz

Jazz found a home here decades ago and can now be sought out in clubs throughout the year, as well as at the Minorca International Jazz Festival during the spring months. San Clemente Jazz Club is the island’s oldest jazz venue and plays host to many visiting professionals and semi-professionals.

On Thursday nights you can enjoy live jazz and blues at the Akelarre Jazz Club in Mahón, which will also impress with its famous cocktails. If your villa is near Ciutadella, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Sa Clau Jazz Club, which is located in a natural cave.

Hot and Spicy Salsa

If you want to experience the fiery Latin dancing scene on the island, you will be drawn to Assukar in Mahón. Watch the locals sizzle on the dance floor and join them as they salsa, bachata and merenge their way into the early hours.

Tse Tse, a well-known nightclub that can be found by the ferry port in Mahón Harbour, is a great salsa venue, while Asere in Cuitadella is another stylish alternative if you’re looking for sexy salsa beats.

Venues with Outstanding Atmosphere  

When it comes to unique live music venues, Menorca really takes the prize. Cova d’en Xoroi is a truly spectacular bar, built into a network of caves with extensive outdoor terraces that offer incredible sea views. It is open to visitors throughout the day, but it’s after dark that the place really comes alive: it transforms into an atmospheric nightclub with amazing live performances.

If you’re a fan of classical music, the ancient cloisters of Claustre de Seminari in Cuitadella provide an enchanting atmosphere for a number of concerts throughout the year. Similarly, Sa Terrassa es Claustre in Mahón offers classical and contemporary concerts in the middle of the Mercat des Claustre.

Whether you’re looking for a chilled-out venue to sip cocktails and soak up some jazz, or a thumping party club to show off your salsa moves, Menorca’s nightlife will not disappoint.
