Tucked away in Old Town Palma, behind the large brown doors of a centuries old villa, is the bar Abaco, a must stop visit during a yacht charter of the Spanish Balearic Islands. Visiting Abaco is not a bar stop, it is an experience all encased within the walls of a 16th century traditional Spanish manor house. Decorated in the Baroque style, Abaco is a true taste of historic Palma. You should explore every room while there, and see every over the top flower display. And be sure to be there at 12:00 midnight on Friday night, as at midnight, every Friday night, to a loud crescendo of classical music, rose petals cascade down from the cavernous ceiling over the fireplace for a fresh rose petal carpet on the floor. And where else in the world can you see that?
Of course, entertainment of this sort does not come cheaply. Drinks start at around Euro 12.00, however they are true drinks. Order a vodka and orange juice and a crystal pitcher of fresh squeezed orange juice arrives with the vodka portion beside to self mix to your own potency choice. Wander out onto the terrace garden, filled with blooming plants with a water feature blending the sound of falling water into the classical music playing in the background. So stop by Abaco in the evening, only after 8:00pm, as the bar is not open during the day, knock on the door, and you will be greeted by a white gloved waiter and introduced to your Abaco experience.Contact Northrop and Johnson For More Information!
