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 aswell as in the side streets and harbourside of Es Castell ( moll de Pons and moll de Cales Fonts ).

Dance, Music Clubs and Venues listing

Only a few of the beach resorts have a discotec 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 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! ) . South American music has gained a foot hold with a recent influx of immigrants from Brazil and Argentina, so you will find Salsa,Tango etc.

Menorca Holiday Tip
  • Outside of summer 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.
