So, first of let’s start with drinks; In Magaluf it’s a little different to back home. If you’re a spirit and mixer drinker, most of the bars, nightclubs, and restaurants you find dotted around Magaluf serve what is known as Top Shelf of Bottom Shelf.

This is just a nice way of saying cheap or premium, being top shelf is the premium brands like Smirnoff, Grey Goose, Jack Daniels etc and the bottom shelf being the equivalent drinks but a more cheap, local brand.
