Cala en Porter, Spain
In the resort town of Cala en Porter on the island of Minorca, the cliffside seats of Cova d'en Xoroi offer some of the best views in the Mediterranean not to mention a tranquillity nearly impossible to find on the better-known Balearic islands of Majorca and Ibiza. Visitors of all stripes enjoy the bar's shady terraces by day; at sundown the space morphs into a jet-set bîte, where international island-hoppers sip la pomada, a local cocktail of gin and lemon juice. Come midnight, a varied soundscape from mellow to bass-heavy beats beckons revelers to the lower-level discothèque, where the party continues until early morning. Cave dwelling has never been so chic. Cova d'en Xoroi, 34/971-377-236; www.covadenxoroi.com; $6 cover (day), $24 (night); open May through October.
