Real Mallorca Vs Real Madrid

4 of us have tickets for this match - first week in May - but they can't confirm the date yet.

We're staying at the Catalonia Majoricar which seems a bit out of the City but does anyone know of some decent bars that 4 over 50 blokes can have fun in?

We're businessmen on a 3 day "let your hair down convention" and always take in a football match, but none of us have stayed in Palma before. So any suggestions of decent beer at a decent price would help. Can't some how see us in the Abaco!!!

The date won't be known until about a week to ten days before the game.

Thanks - I think I'd seen oneof your posts earlier about it.

We're in Palma from Tuersday to Friday morning so whenver the match is we should be OK - its scheduled for the Wednesday.

More interested though in someone marking our card for places to drink so we don't stumble round the streets hoping to drop on somewhere. Ecelectic tastes but all like a decent pint, bit of life, and a decent place without paying 15 Euros for a cocktail if you get my drift? Any suggestions?

I don't know the area you are staying, but "Abaco" prices are not normal. You can normally tell from the outside the prices they are likely to charge. Also a price list should be dsplayed

I've looked where your hotel is and there are plenty of "ordinary" priced bars around. On the Paseo Maritimo (seafront road) there are a few more sophisticated places and therefore a bit dearer, although not exhorbitant. Pay as you go, that way at least you won't get caught twice.

Thanks for your help.

I was a bit worried that although the hotel says its within walking distance of the City that it may not be in reality.

And then we'd end up taxi riding everywhere and miss out.

So if there's things near by we can discover those and enjoy the City as well.

Its not that we are tight or anything, just wanted a bit of a steer if anyone knew of something they can recommend.,

Cheers to you both..Obviously Moocher has sampled Ponte Labour Club's delights..

So stick along the front it is and go traditional..

What's the Carrer Del Apuntadores like? Is it Tourist aimed?

Mallorca play this Sunday at 9pm, so the Madrid game won't be Tuesday. Wednesday or Thursday at 8 or 10pm are the four alternatives. I'll let you know.
