Every evening, people from Palma get ready for tapas night. Take part of this local ritual with our tapas night tour in Palma de Mallorca. You will taste a delicious dinner of tapas and pinchos, jumping from one bar to another where you will meet new friends while you eat and drink like Mallorcans do. This is our local life, here!
The special tapas night is called, here in Palma, “Ruta Martiana”. Every Tuesday night, in the Palma city center, a lot of little bars offer “tapas” and “pinchos” (a slice of bread with vegetables, fish or meat on the top) accompanied with a glass of wine or with a cold beer for a really good price. So, Tuesday evenings are more crowded and lively than any other day of the week.
Tapas night started with the crisis, this was a time when a lot of people in Palma did not have money to spend in bars. During the week, bars were empty, because few people went. Here, in Spain, the bar is like an institution. So, the empty bar atmosphere was pretty sad. As a result, the bars of Palma met and they invented the “Ruta Martiana”. A lot of bars had the same idea, which was: affordable prices and one drink included with the tapa. The idea worked out very well and today it still exists each Tuesday night! It is a really interesting and fun event that you should experience in Palma!
We will enter many different bars, selected by us to let you try the most tasty tapas and to stay in the most artistic and lovely corners of the tapas night bars. You absolutely have to try them! Spanish ham, grilled lamb, tortilla with onions and potatoes, paté with garlic and marmalade, croquetas, fish pinchos and sausages. For each tapa you order, you can choose a glass of local wine, cold beer or soft drink.
It will be our pleasure to offer suggestions and to guide you in your choices.
