The Balearic government has hit back. Just hours after reports that bars and restaurants would be allowed to open until 6p.m. the government has said it will be a 4p.m. close, terraces only and with reduced capacity and a maximum of four people per table.
Bars and restaurants will reopen next Tuesday with the Balearic government making an official announcement on Friday. But it will only be those businesses which have a terrace with a capacity of 50 percent.
Business leaders have stressed that they want longer opening hours and they will be locked in talks with the government over the coming days.

You mean 0400?
Do they mean 4am
Apart from the sour grapes here, the story remains the same..... Armengol and Co need to take note of what Boris and Co are achieving in the UK.... Sadly, Majorca no longer has the draw for the average ordinary tourist and it’s Euros. As instructed by a certain Mr. Badbore within a previous instruction of his, I have booked a month’s multicentre arrangement within Greece, so that’s circa E10k going elsewhere other than to his beloved Nirvana
'But it will only be those businesses which have a terrace with a capacity of 50 percent.' A capacity of 50%? Assuming we don't cut people into pieces then 50% requires a minimum of 2 people, doh.
Don't you think this is getting out of hand.come on boys! A little respect.
Aaah, its all good then Mr Badbore. Let me try to understand. When someone attacks you or says something you don't like, you think the MDB should react and censor the writer. But when you write abusive posts its all a bit of a laugh, just joking, wanted to see Dave's reaction. Honestly it's pathetic.
Haha, I only reacted as I knew our house white supremicist Dave would of course react to me. So predictable this sad old man. And he makes things up as he goes along. None of what he says about me is ever true at all. Maybe I should call you Dave Trump.
I find Mark Badbore to be a contradiction in terms. On the one hand he can't take abuse, but then says most Brits are legless fighting drunks. Has he been to the Jumeirah in Soller or La Residencia in Deia or the Mardavall or the Grand Son Net, 80% of the guests are pish well behaved Brits. In fact there are always more arrests per annum in Arenal with Germans than there are in Magaluf. He also vilifies countries like Turkey, and you have to wonder if its a religious bias 🤷♂️. So he gives it out but can't take it. Also he calls the paper he reads all day and probably comments tge most of anyone on the "Daily BS" I personally am very grateful to the MDB for keeping us informed of whats going on. I can't believe the staff get paid that much, so to take crap off the likes of Badbore is grossly unfair.
Alan, makes a nice change of the legless brits that normally roam the streets half naked, screaming and shouting and fighting. I cannot believe MDB keep allowing these personal attacks. I had to endure many here. But nothing is done. Yet say something that is not in the MDB political alley and they don´t publish it. No wonder it is generally referred to as the Daily BS.
I think you will find that the closure of bars/restaurants in Mallorca was driven by a reduction in the appropriate social distancing protocol following the excessive consumption of alcohol, be it in bars, restaurants or even illegal bottellon gatherings. To deny this seems rather ignorant.
