Sorry to ask again but any more news on La Roca that anyone has heard? It's strange as they are still posting on Facebook (although nothing about the bar) but when I sent them a message asking no one replies. We also can't get hold of Julio who used to run the bar. I am hoping it will be back but I think it all sounds like it might have closed?

There is no sign of it at the moment so it is not looking good for this year.
Embat is nearly ready to open.

I see from posts that Embat has reappeared. Good Luck to them.

Hoping La Roca will appear somewhere on the beach.

The Hustlers were a great band to listen to on a Sunday afternoon at La Roca.

However, last year, they were apparently fined heavily for both the music and chairs/tables spreading beyond their allotted area!!

Apparently there were complaints from a resident opposite every week, even when he was out of the country!! All hearsay of course as anonymity is part of the complaint process!!

Hi ,
every four years the bar needs to renew the permits from the town hall.
Once this process is over we hope to be together with all of you soon and with all our team.Julio it’s not here for the moment.
Thank you and see you soon

Thank you Sparky. My Dad actually spoke to Julio last week who said he was travelling over to Mallorca in the next couple of weeks and was hoping the bar would be back but didn't know for sure but would keep him posted. I didn't post as I didn't have anything concrete but I am keeping everything crossed it will be back by the summer. If I hear anything more I will post.

Default La roca

We were out in May and were disappointed that the ROCA was not open. In fact it had been obliterated. We think this is shortsighted as due to the excellent childrens play area it was used by more locals than visitors in the past.
Used to be good for a couple of drinks before going for a meal as not any other "pure" bars in the vicinity. A local restuaranteer, I will not name, was happy it was gone as it looked like public toilets and spoilt the view. I thought that it's presence would have attracted customers to the local restuarants.
Perhaps will be open this September for our next visit, wishfull thinking!!

Hi Miller, It did attract customers alright , but not to the local places, which I would suggest is the real reason the restaurant owner was glad it's gone and nothing to do with it's appearance.

I can recall several times in the past as I walked along there and it was packed.

If it's permanent then I think it's all the sadder for its passing.

I spoke to Miguel who owns La Roca on Sunday and once again it appears that slow moving local council bureaucracy is behind it's non appearance as they still await their licence renewal.

Miguel still hopes to open this year but obviously the longer the delay the less likely this is to happen

If any of your are missing the lovely Julio who used to run the bar at La Roca he is back but is working in the old town. If La Roca does reopen lets hope he returns too. If I can find out the exact restaurant/bar he is in I will post.

Thanks your responses, I agree regarding real reason for objections from other establishments. None offer a reasonable space for Al Fresco liquid refreshment as opposed to food. One should never eat on an empty stomach.
I have also noticed a very old property on the nearest corner heading towards the town which is being renovated using lovely stone rather than breezeblocks. This would be a great place to sit and soak in the view etc. Does anyone know what this building was and is now going to be? Thanks

If we're talking about the same place (big old style house) on the corner.

I always thought that was a private house.

They started renovating that the last time I was there with my late wife and that was 3 years ago.

Yes that is the one. Obviously very old judging by the erosion to the stonework. I would think that it is one of the oldest buildings in the town. Perhaps one of the local readers could throw some light on it. I assume that there are the equivalent of "listed building" laws in place.
Sparky, can you help?
