Music Nights with Nabil Julian at Casa Linda

8pm – Tuesdays throughout September 2023

A pocket of tranquillity in the hills of San JoséCasa Linda is the latest project from highly respected restaurateur Tomás Abellán, the mastermind behind Barcelona hotspots Casa Luz and Bar Alegría. For his first Balearic outpost – set within the garden of boutique hotel Jardins de Palerm – Abellán has enlisted the talented hands of Mariano Segura (formerly of Tickets, Barcelona) as head chef, while his sister Júlia Navarro has taken on restaurant manager duties.

Tuesday evenings feature live acoustic music by Nabil Julian, who serenades diners among the trees and twinkling lights of the secret garden style restaurant.

International clubbers, island residents and purveyors of fine music can unite beneath the Balearic sky, with the superyachts bobbing in the harbour behind the stage while Solomun plays a free gig as a way to say thank you to the island for supporting him this summer.
