Where to begin a long weekend in Palma, with such a short time to enjoy the city’s trendiest places? For a small group of stylishly dressed friends, visiting from northern Europe, the answer is an insider tip: the cosmopolitan OPIO Bar & Restaurant in La Lonja.
Opio Bar & Restaurant
Located within Puro Hotel, it’s played a part in Palma’s growing reputation as a gastronomic destination – which the friends are here to experience. The clientele is international, has good taste, an eye for details, and expects good service.
Since Swedish entrepreneur Mats Wahlström opened Puro Hotel in 2004, OPIO Bar & Restaurant has become the evening meeting place of choice for discerning international visitors and locals, enjoying the company of like-minded people in a stylish setting, great cuisine, and a sophisticated ambience.
In a typical Mallorcan palace, Puro Hotel was La Lonja’s first boutique hotel and set new standards in urban hotel accommodation. Its transcultural OPIO is a striking example of contemporary Mallorcan nightlife, with attractive patios, and the music of top DJs – for memorable weekend nights in an informal and vibrant atmosphere.
The friends are likely to mingle with people who have spent the day at Palma’s waterfront Purobeach and come to OPIO for the night.
Diners will find fusion cuisine bursting with intense flavours and mouthwatering aromas. Passion and creativity go into the menu of simple, but original, high-quality Asiatic and Mediterranean dishes – served by a professional, customer-orientated team.
The cuisine is based on seasonal produce, the finest seafood and meat, and characteristic ingredients such as lemongrass, ginger, Amarillo chili, coconut, and coriander. State-of-the-art culinary techniques lend a contemporary flavour to both traditional recipes and original creations.
Humility, respect, and professionalism are some of the values behind OPIO Bar & Restaurant.
“Our mission is to deliver an Oasis of Happiness,” says Beltran A. de Estrada, CEO. If you love to travel, and have a cosmopolitan and bohemian spirit, OPIO Bar & Restaurant at Puro Hotel deserves an entry in your address book.
