Puerto Pollensa nightlife

The inland town of Pollensa is fairly quiet at night with most of the action centred around the Plaça Major, all of it of the eating and drinking variety. The Puerto Pollensa is a different kettle of fish, buzzing with people sitting out on terraces along the seafront, and a lively pub and theme bar scene in the centre. Chivas (C/ Medico Llopis, no phone) is the only local disco. It opened in 1969 and is still going strong, playing a healthy mix of crowd-pleasers (remember I will survive by Gloria Gaynor?) and Spanish pop. It’s fun if you don’t take it too seriously, but if you’re over 35 expect to be the oldest person there. Bars tend to be of the international pub variety, among them Mulligans Irish Bar (C/ Atilio Boveri 5, Puerto Pollensa) for decent live bands and pints of guinness, and Match Point - Sports Bar & Beer House (Paseo Saralegui 6, Puerto Pollensa, +34 971 867 788, www.matchpointbar.com) for catching the match on multiple screens. It stocks more than 40 different kinds of beer.
