Good to Know - Clubs
Menorca is always described in comparison to it's neighbours Majorca and Ibizia as 'quiet'. That's true by their standards but it doesn't mean there's not plenty of good (and lively) places for the young and not so young to go out in the evenings. The biggest concentration of the best nightlife is located in the harbour areas of the island's two cities - Ciutadella and Mahon.
In the beach resorts : Cala en Porter, Binibeca
Several music venues along the harboursides of Es Castell ( moll de Pons and moll de Cales Fonts ).
While Menorca is no 'Clubbers paradise', there are still plenty of places where you can dance the night away, none more spectacular so than Covas den Xoroi set in natural caves 25m above the Med. in Cala en Porter - with well known guest DJs from UK and Ibiza. Most of Menorca's dance clubs can be found in the harbour areas ( with smaller music and "chill out" bars in the side streets ) of Mahon and Ciutadella as well as in Es Castell harbours and Cala en Porter.
Dance , Music Clubs and Venues listing
Only a few of the beach resorts have a 'discotech' ( usually an area of a bar ) but most may offer a bar or two featuring a floor space for some late night movers. Most of the island's best dance venues and clubs though are in Mahon (Mao) and Ciutadella. Don't forget though life here in summer is about late eating and even later going out , so don't turn up before 11 or midnight or you might be alone! Check for opening times which maybe from midnight onwards.
Bigger clubs will generally have multiple spaces for latest dance music as well as classic 70,80 and 90s dance beats ( yes for us older ones! ). Latin music has gained a foothold with the recent influx of immigrants from Brazil and Argentina, so you will find Salsa,Tango etc.
Menorca Holiday Tip
- Outside of summer period clubs open weekends only. In summer (mid june to mid september) there are more events, guest performers.
- Quite often Clubs will 'makeover' and rename, but generally they will still be in the same areas.
Ciutadella harbour area
Pla de Sant Joan, the area at the head of the old harbour is the place if you like to drift from one club to another . An unusual location where many have open roof terraces where you can chill out under the stars.
