New York; Paris; Barcelona: the explosion in rooftop bars have spread through key cities. While admittedly not at the same level, Palma is catching onto the trend. Luxury hotels and sharp restauranteurs know that what’s hot now is to eat and drink with a breathtaking bird’s-eye view.
Blessed with stunning architecture, right on the Med, this is a city lending itself beautifully to higher-the-better bars and restaurants. With 2019 set to be the year of the rooftop bar, here’s our guide to the best Palma has to offer.

Rooftop Terrace Bar at Hotel Sant Francesc
Access a piece of one of Palma’s most raved about hotels, up on its roof. Sant Francesc Hotel Singular is a quintessential modern Mallorca hotel. This historic palace building in an old-town location, elegantly restored, has a Rooftop Terrace Bar perfect for evening drinks.
Light meals are served on this terrace with small pool throughout the day, while at night you can indulge in gourmet Mediterranean snacks or simply enjoy a cocktail or two. As the sun sets over the rooftops, this is an undeniably romantic spot
The Terrace at Palacio Can Marques
Palacio Can Marques, the stunning former palace, now five-star hotel, in La Lonja not only boasts beautiful interiors and a fabulous restaurant on the ground floor with its own courtyard, but also has a rooftop oasis in the form of The Terrace. Spend the day here sipping a cocktail in the sunshine or sit back and watch the sun set over the Cathedral and the rooftops of Palma’s old town. Why not retire to the roof after dinner on warm evenings for a nightcap before retiring to your room?
KATAGI Blau Restaurant
No expense has been spared to make the rooftop at Llaüt Palace Hotel simply stunning. High above the bay at Playa de Palma – reinvented with a facelift and luxury hotels – it has a terrace restaurant, KATAGI Blau.
The Japan-inspired décor and menu make for a chic Asia-meets-Mallorca vibe, and with three teppanyaki stations, there is plenty of choice. A good line in ‘cocktail art’ plus special brunch and business menus mean this top-floor venue buzzes from morning until late into the night.
Located on the top floor of the Llaut Palace Hotel in El Arenal, chef Gunnar Blischke of Katagi Blau creates fresh and flavourful Asian inspired cuisine. […] Asian delights at KATAGI Blau
Almaq at Es Princep Hotel
‘A killer seaview’ says Es Princep Hotel, aptly describing its rooftop terrace, Almaq. Situated in the city’s Calatrava area, close to the seafront, this Palma hotspot looks out over the old town and the sparkling bay.
Open to non-guests every day from 19:00 to 23:30 hrs, Almaq does gourmet snacks, canapés, and cocktails. The British Telegraph named Es Princep one of six fabulous Mallorca hotels for 2018.
Es Princep Hotel is a sunlit 5 star hotel in the charming Calatrava barrio of Palma de Mallorca, offering sea views, Michelin chef cuisine and Spanish ease. […] Waterfront Es Princep Hotel in Palma
Rooftop Bar & CUIT Restaurant at NAKAR Hotel
The Cathedral, Bellver Castle and the Port are all spread out before you from the ninth floor of the NAKAR Hotel: a good option for relaxing with a cocktail by evening (this space is exclusively for hotel guests during the day).
The hotel’s CUIT restaurant sits lower, on the eighth floor, and is well worth a visit for artisan, seasonal cuisine – and amazing city vistas.
Sky Bar at Hotel Hostal Cuba
The Sky Bar at Hostal Cuba welcomes outside guests for breakfast year round, and for evening cocktails from March to November. Located in the trendy Santa Catalina district, this modernist building dates from 1904 and exudes old-school charm.
