Mykonos by night Clubs and Bars


Mykonos nightlife lives up to its reputation, with clubbers partying into the early hours to the world’s biggest DJs and alongside the biggest international celebrities.
For those looking for a more relaxed atmosphere, fear not. From the charming bars of Little Venice to the quaint cocktail bars of Chora, Mykonos has you covered.

When all the other alleys of Chora are deserted, in these lively squares the music continues to be heard loudly, the fans enjoying cool cocktails and socialising becomes the key to the most exciting night out!

If there is a Greek island where the night seems like day and the nightlife is the wildest and most fun of all the Cyclades Islands, that is Mykonos.

So if you are looking for a destination for young people, one of the most popular islands for tourists from all over the world, where you never get bored and dance from 5 in the afternoon until the early hours of the morning, you have chosen the island that is for you.

Those who, after a relaxing afternoon on the most beautiful beaches of Mykonos, want to take a walk can reach the agglomeration with the white, blue and colored houses of the Chora of Mykonos Town and venture into the streets of the Little Venice district, in search of taverns, small colorful bars and clubs, which have a spectacular view of the sea, and are literally besieged by tourists just before sunset.

The discos in the center of Mykonos

The evenings on the island are famous in all the seaside resorts of Greece and the night is young, so let’s go in search of the best clubs in Mykonos. One of the most beautiful and largest is the Cavo Paradiso Club, with a track so large that exceeds three thousand square meters, where you can dance to the rhythm of international DJ sets with incredible views of the sea and the cliff (but pay attention to the entrance ticket which can be expensive).

At the top of the list there is also the beach and the famous Paradise Beach Club, the most famous and popular, by the sea, voted by international DJs as the 14th Best Club in the world ranking, which in 2019 celebrates its 50th anniversary and is preparing a program of parties and events not to be missed!

At Paradise the dance music is always at full volume starting at 5 pm, with dancers and entertainers who warm up the atmosphere in the three rooms and by the pool: do not miss its moon party, where glasses of sangria are poured non-stop and dance under the stars on the two slopes, Paradise Beach and Super Paradise. On the site you can buy the entrance ticket to spend less or book a VIP table to ensure an unforgettable evening.

One of the largest nightclubs on the island is in the center, indoors and is called Spacedance, with a dance floor that can hold more than a thousand people for unbridled fun: here dancers on the cube and strobe lights are the masters and there is no shortage of warm gay-friendly nights.

Calling it just a disco or disco-bar would be an understatement, because the Skandinavian Bar is a must for nightlife in the center of Mykonos and since 1978 in its small square (from 20 to 6 in the morning), there are dance floors with different musical selections, corners with counter for the open bar to recharge with shots, cocktails or beer, and then there are rooms (outdoors or indoors), where you dance above and below the tables, with public areas and VIP areas where you toast regardless of expenses.

Does anyone ask for the closing time of the discos in Mykonos? Don’t be afraid to go wild until the morning and remember that on the most festive island in all of Greece there are whole groups of kids who wait for the dawn dancing non-stop, stopping only as soon as the sun rises, when they finally decide to go to sleep, when the rest of the tourists get ready to go to the beach.

Then there are also gay friendly clubs, such as the white bar Jackie O’Beach, on the famous Super Paradise beach, which offers transgressive evenings often animated by hilarious drag queens, as also happens at the Pierros bar.

Always open from late afternoon to early morning is the Babylon, with its relaxed atmosphere and dance evenings with commercial music. It doesn’t matter who you are, not even who you love, not even at the @ 54 Club, a disco with a house or pop sound, where the night is filled with uninhibited souls. Enjoy a beautiful sunset and gay friends are also welcome at Montparnasse, which offers excellent cocktails and nights with live music.

The atmosphere of the Toy Room is not bad either: the name already helps, if you then add soft lighting, cheap cocktails, girls and entertainers who involve the most timid and the “game” is done.

Is your goal to go wild in a beach bar and throw yourself into wild beach parties? The most loved is the Tropicana Beach Bar, one of the most coveted places on the island, on Paradise Beach, open every day from 9 to 1 am, where you can dance in costume and non-stop until you drop in a fun atmosphere and animated. And it’s not bad even for the low cost of admission: renting an umbrella and two sun loungers on the beach can cost starting from 20 euros.

Soft atmosphere, lounge music, gourmet dishes and elegant clientele can always be found at the Kastro Bar, one of the most coveted in Little Venice: this is the right place for the sunset, which can be enjoyed sipping a few good cocktails in good company.

Renowned on the harbor is the Remezzo lounge bar, which has an elegant restaurant on the terrace and is ideal for those who want to have a romantic dinner at sunset and then stop for a few cocktails just a few steps from the water.

Another address for an intimate and passionate evening is the Belvedere, with the pool that creates an atmosphere and the cocktail bar that offers exotic drinks and revisited classics.

In the daytime Mykonos Town is busy with many kinds of holidaymakers: Families, couples and groups from all over the world, of all ages, shapes and sizes cluster here to shop, eat and enjoy the many sights the town has to offer.

In the evening, it becomes populated with ‘the beautiful people’; mostly young males and females, gay and straight, parading their young slender bodies, toned and tanned in elegant high fashion. If you want to be seen, this is the place to be seen!

mykonos-nightlifeAs the night advances, the middle-aged slip away to their beds and the town belongs to the young. Here you won’t find the raucus revelling that is carried out by European teenagers who visit some of the other Greek islands, Mykonos is far to ‘cool’ for such displays – but it has displays of its own. Mykonos Town at night is a place which never sleeps.

Many of the fashion shops, jewellers, small supermarkets etc. remain open until well after 1a.m. It is a place when even if you are dead tired, you don’t want to go back to your hotel to sleep because there is so much energy in the centre of the town and you want it to rub off on you. Nightlife in Mykonos town stimulates all your senses with its lively variety of clubs, dancing, live music, restaurants and cafes, bars and seaside taverns.

You can be a chameleon during your holiday, spoiling yourself by splurging out in one of  Mykonos exclusive garden restaurants, adorned in all your finery, hoping to spot one of the countless Greek or internationally famous people who frequent the island in the summer months, or, dressing down in your best ‘grunge’ or ‘hippy gear’ to sit in one of the atmospheric bars or restaurants that line the seafront of Little Venice.

little-venice-bars Alternatively, you can dress ‘incognito’, hiding behind large sunglasses, and watch the parade of people taking their evening stroll along the seafront . Finally, if you are feeling extremely daring, you can don your most outrageous attire and visit the famous gay bar in the town, the Pierro’s bar, with its twice nightly drag show entertainment.

From noon starts the party mainly from the area of Little Venice. As you coming down from the wind mills through Alefkandra gate, walk through the bars of Little Venice and squeeze through the crowds along the narrow pavement between the sea and the bars.

The Caprice bar seems to be partying all day and night and, with its bohemian decor and lively music it creates a different atmosphere and attracts many Greek and foreigner young people. Adjacent to the nightlife bar Caprice are the Semeli, Galleraki, Scarpa and Veranda bars. All have an atmosphere as lively as the Caprice bar but slightly more terraced seating space.

In order to enjoy the nightlife of Mykonos in high season or during periods of Greek national holidays, you need to get here quite early in the evening in order to find a place to sit where you can avoid being trampled on by the passing crowds of people cutting through the narrow space between the table and the walking path.

Right on the corner of Little Venice you will see the Veranda bar. It is located in one of the charmingly quaint buildings that gives the area its unique character. If you are lucky you can get a seat on its old wooden first floor veranda and avoid the constant crush of passers-by that the other bars suffer from.

The whole area around Little Venice is a perfect place to sit and and watch the sky changing as the sun sets. Whilst enjoying a refreshing drink or delicious meal you can enjoy the wonders of nature’s paint box as she turns day into night with colours that alter from ultramarine to turquoise to pink and gold and then to the deep navy blue of the night sky, twinkling with silver stars and the golden lights of the cruise ships out at sea. Once the sun sets the crowds begin to disperse slightly as the ‘young and the restless’ leave to embellish themselves for the night ahead.

mykonos-by-nightWithin the town of Mykonos there are numerous of trendy music bars or just cafe bars for every taste. Near to the place where there used to be the old sophisticated, Vengera bar, is the Aroma Bar which mostly has a Greek clientele. It is located right at the most busiest junction of Mykonos Town centre, namely, between Matogianni and Enoplon Dynameon Streets. Here is one of the best places to enjoy a drink and watch the colourful crowds passing by, increasing in density and ‘peacockery’ as the night goes on.

In the early evening, at Aroma Bar, the music is light and easy Jazz. A few steps further takes you to another popular bar, The Cosi, where you can sit on the raised walled seating that line the sides of the street, The jolly mile extends further to Aegli and Astra at the 3 wells. Stay for some time and watch the transformation.

mykonos-sunset-barIn the early evening (around 8p.m.) young people flock here from the nearby beaches, still drenched in sun and sand, their glossy hair pulled back in a casual way that only the young can make beautiful. However, as the evening draws on they disappear and re-emerge as super-butterflies in flimsy flowing dresses.

Interestingly, at this time of night it is the middle-aged visitor who by 8p.m. is coiffured and spruced up for their evening dinner before quietly withdrawing and giving the town up to the young for the night. Later on, the night outing will continue in Cavo Paradiso, Ode, Remezzo, Kastro, Ramroo, on the stairs in Manto square, in Mykonos bar, Thalami, Scandinavian and many other clubs and bars who are making the nightlife of Mykonos one of the most wild and beautiful in Europe.
