If you’re looking for a party, it’s likely you’ll want to stick to the livelier party resorts of Zante, Crete and Corfu for your fix of nightlife and entertainment in Greece.
Towns here tend to be packed with bars and clubs that crank up the sound system until the early hours. Edem Beach Club (Dassia, Corfu) stays open all day, transforming from a mellow beach club serving coffee and snacks during the day to a busy nightclub with a line-up of top-name DJs as the sun goes down.
And that’s far from the only venue in Greece to benefit from a beachside location and laidback attitude to opening hours. Kahlua Bar (Akti Zouroudi), in the picturesque port town of Kos, is one of a handful of clubs in this region where the party never stops. Expect fire-dancers, drinks offers and a deep bass soundtrack from morning until night.
Faliraki, once considered one of the best options for crazy nights out in Greece, has quietened down somewhat in recent years. But never fear: its sister town of Lindos has stepped up to replace the resort as Rhodes’s party central.
While there’s no denying the fun to be had in the many party resorts in Greece, entertainment is also in plentiful supply on the quieter islands. Take sleepy Kefalonia, for example. Famous for its sparkling waters, golden beaches and lush wildlife, it’s not the first place that springs to mind when you think of Greece nightlife. But chic hangouts such as Captain’s Bar (Skala) serve up luscious cocktails with a side of sea views – and maybe even a celebrity or two.
If you’re in the market for more traditional nights out in Greece, the many ‘ouzeries’ and tavernas of Thessaloniki tend to provide traditional live Greek music as a backdrop to your dining experience. Palati (3 Ladadika Platia Morihovou) is one such restaurant and wine bar.
Housed within an old Egyptian market, the venue regularly hosts a five-piece live band that plays traditional Greek folklore music. For a proper Greek experience, meanwhile, head to Dimitris (Kamari, Santorini) for a fun-filled evening of plate smashing and Zorba dancing.
