This dimly-lit underground bar only accessible through coded door is an experience not to be missed in the capital. In a setting not dissimilar from a cosily lit cave, step down into the bar and find an inventive programme of cocktails. Secret bars have become a hit in cities like London and Berlin – could this be the start of a new trend in Palma? Its wax-dripping candles, gated entrance and stone-heavy interior certainly offered something new for the abcMallorca team, who visited one evening after work.
“When you open the door it feels like you’ve just set foot on a movie set – it triggers all your senses. Smells of burnt herbs, the soft water-like murmur of conversation and the subtle vibrations that old buildings and their histories impart…” – Stefan, Graphic Designer
The cocktails are bespoke mixes and carry a unique set of flavours, often inspired by cultures from around the world (their most recent being a Singapore-based cocktail). The flambéed varieties went down well with the abcMallorca team who were impressed with the attention to detail. The menu is both colourful and decorative, with many of their craft cocktails resembling works of art. The speakeasy atmosphere and glow of candles make Door13 a good choice for those looking for an intimate evening.
“It was something quite different, like turning back the clock to the 20s: a movement of romance and dark ambience. On top of the drinks, the music was really good. A great place if you wanted to surprise someone.” – Estefanía, Community Manager & Photographer
The abcMallorca team visited Palma’s Mallorca Gin Distillery for a gin masterclass, tasting, and even created their own version of the popular spirit. […] #TeamExperience at Mallorca Gin Distillery
Live music can be enjoyed throughout the week with performances from jazz, blues and swing artists – all inkeeping with The Great Gatsby vibe. The comfortable leather sofas make it all the more easy to sit back and let the evening slip by. For the abcMallorca team, Door13 felt like a world of its own, a 1920s time capsule where everyone felt able to disconnect and unwind.
“From the outside it is unassuming but inside it’s so cool. Everything is candle-lit and there is a pair of huge angel wings that hang from above. The cocktails had a very distinct taste and the staff were really friendly.” – Kaloyan, IT Manager
