The opening of the new Lío Mallorca Cabaret Show and Club on the site of the former Tito’s discotheque in Palma is set to revive the Paseo Maritimo area bringing the glamourous atmosphere of its former heyday years of the 60’s and 70’s when the club hosted international celebrities of the day including Charlie Chaplin, Grace Kelly, and Sean Connery.
The Pacha Group has opened its famous cabaret show in Mallorca after its successful launch in Ibiza some 12 years ago. Local architects, Gras Reynès, has headed up the refurbishment of the building with interiors by the Lázaro Rosa-Violán who is renowned for his work in nightclubs throughout the world. The winds of the island’s Sierra Tramuntana are the inspiration of the design concept with elevated semicircular platforms that rise from the main stage to spotlight performers. The club has retained its distinctive multi-level glass façade offering panoramic views across the Bay of Palma and the city.
During the show guests can enjoy the cuisine of local chef, Andreu Genestra, who has earned a Michelin star and a Green Michelin star for his Mallorcan restaurant. Genestra has created a menu to complement the show full of Mediterranean flavours and colour that will surprise clients who can choose from 33 different dishes on the special Lío dining menu.
The opening show entitled “Simply the Best”, is a homage to the late Tina Turner and over 20 artists perform in this sassy, sexy modern cabaret with singers, dancers, and acrobats. After the show, the Lío Club opens at midnight with a seamless transition as stages becomes dancefloors and bars for guests to enjoy until the early hours with top DJs and international performers. Entrance tickets, to include the dinner and the Lío cabaret, start at 200 euros per person: https://mallorca.liopacha.com/
