Situated on the picturesque Bay of Palma, El Terreno enjoys a privileged location between the picturesque Paseo Maritimo and the historic Bellver Castle Park.

The legendary Tito’s nightclub, now renamed Lío Mallorca, has undergone a remarkable transformation under the skilled hands of GRAS Reynés Arquitectos and Lázaro Rosa-Violáns. The project pays homage to the iconic dinner-show legacy of the 1950s. The circular layout includes decks surrounding a central stage, anchored by a striking circular staircase. The intimate and enigmatic interiors, with mirrored walls and natural stone, provide an ideal backdrop for performances. This transformation breathes new life into the historic architectural icon of nightlife.
Tito’s has a unique place in Palma’s history as one of the oldest clubs in Europe. Originally established in the 1930s as an open-air dinner concert hall, it later became a renowned destination on the island during the tourism boom of the 1950s and 1960s. The design for Lío Mallorca recreates the spirit of this golden era, reintroducing a cabaret dinner show reminiscent of the 1950s.
The renovation also respects the original structure, focusing on preserving its architectural essence. The exterior has been carefully restored, removing recent additions and restoring iconic features such as lifts, the roof totem and the curved roof with a curtain wall offering breathtaking views. The panoramic glass lifts have been replaced with replicas of the originals, paying tribute to the club’s exclusive past.
Lío Mallorca represents a renaissance for this historic nightlife architectural icon, preserving its heritage while infusing it with a fresh, avant-garde approach. Inside, the club’s layout has been reconfigured into a series of decks surrounding the main stage, providing an optimal viewing experience for both dining and entertainment. The central circular staircase, decorated with mirrors and plants, leads guests to their tables, adding a touch of drama to the entrance.
The interiors exude a mysterious, late-night ambiance with dark ochre hues, mirrored walls, wallpapers, plants, and natural stones. Acoustic comfort has been meticulously addressed both inside and outside. Lío Mallorca breathes new life into an historic architectural icon, preserving its legacy while redefining the nightlife experience.
