“COME for a drink, stay for the food!” enthuses Deborah McKay.

Deborah is the part-owner at Palma’s latest sophisticated and stylish place to be seen, Cargo Bar.

When drinking and dining in Palma one can be rather spoilt for choice – from the hip hovels of Santa Catalina to more traditional eateries of its Old Town.

However, Cargo Bar yet again offers something new.

For Deborah, it is not just the fact that Cargo Bar is Mallorca’s first container bar which sets it aside from other spots as THE must visit destination this summer.

Its stunning views, exquisite Michelin star food – crafted by Greek/Italian chef Michail Tsigaris – and a highly skilled front of house and bar team promises an unrivalled experience on the island.

“The location is simply stunning being beside the water,” she explains.

“We are right by the boats and have a such a great view of the cathedral but we are also in the heart of the city.

“You would never feel that you are in the middle of a city though when you are sat there given its very relaxed and casual vibe.”

Cargo Bar has opened adjacent to sister restaurant The Boathouse, both run by the same experienced team headed by Deborah’s husband, Mark McKay.

While Cargo Bar has opened primarily as a place to grab a tipple, it also offers high-quality food throughout the day.

Breakfast is served from 9-12, followed by a wide variety lunch menu between 12-4pm with snacks and tapas available until 7pm to keep you going until dinner.

The dinner menu is then offered from 7-10.30pm, although this is likely to be extended during peak season.

“Everything is cooked from fresh and with the very finest ingredients,” Deborah assures me.

Given the fine selection on offer during Cargo Bar’s opening night – from melt in the mouth mini pulled pork burgers to exquisite camembert bites – there is enough to satisfy even the fussiest of diners.

Cargo Bar offers a winning formula; ensuring all tastes and cultures can be catered to and it is no surprise that McKay believes her bar will endear itself to everyone that drops anchor there this summer.
