Spreading its stardust from daybreak till nightfall the island of Mykonos knows no interludes. It is the playground of pleasure seekers holding no boundaries, whatever the time, the day or season, age or preference may be. A playground whose vibrancy never ceases to enthuse even when you think that it is going quiet just a step ahead it becomes loud again. When the rest of the world falls asleep, Mykonos awakes!
As the sun sets over the shimmering Aegean, find a spot on little Venice to marvel its majesty, the hues of the crimson painted sky gleaming over the azure sea. An idyllic setting where you can enjoy a fruit-infused cocktail with your friends or significant other at Semeli the Bar or its prive Toy Room upstairs. Put your name on the guest list of the prive Club project, listen to alternative sounds at Galleraki or simply go for the all-time classics Argo or Caprice. For a different point of view head to Scarpa or even Veranda if you are a fun of rock and house music. If on the other hand you’d rather try out something new, Mykonos by night features two new entries, Breeze and Vicolo. To combine exceptional food with Greek music, then the Sea Satin Market is the place to be!
Mykonos nightlife extends to the neighborhood of Tria Pigadia. Passing the street of Mitropoleos you soon reach the balcony of Ode where you can enjoy a drink while watching hordes of people pass you by. On the other side, glamour meets prestige at Astra and just a bit further Queen is packed with jetsetters and celebrities cheering with a glass of champagne.
You may now think that Mykonos nightlife is about to come to an end. Well, think again as we haven’t even reached the heart of all the action, Matogiani street.
The legendary street of Matogiani features some of the best Mykonos nightclubs and bars dotted amidst the picturesque houses, the stairways and sidewalks. Follow the rock tunes to Passo Doble or the Greek music to Cosi or simply socialize at La Bikina. If you favor a more underground type of music, then unwind at the fragrant garden of Interni or enjoy some intriguing flavors and sounds at the Phos bar-restaurant. Other street bars worth your attention are the White Bar, the Alley and Café du Monde serving everything from ice-cold coffees to mouthwatering delights and exotic cocktails.
It may be hard to leave the neighborhood of Matogiani but if you make it a bit further you will reach the square of Agia Kyriaki, where the legendary gay club Pierro’s used to stand. Now, you can chill out at the bar restaurant Balthazar.
Of course if you are in a dance mood you can always visit the seafront setting of Gialos with Remezzo, Guzel, Cabaret and Thalami bar lifting live clubbing to new heights.
You may be wandering what happened to the crowds filling Pierro’s back in the day. They’ve simply migrated to Jackie O’ in the area of Kastro as well as to Porta bar a few streets further.
The bustling Chora of Mykonos keeps on going until the first hours of the morning and then you can either head back to your hotel to relax for a few hours or continue partying with some of the best DJs in the world at the incredible seaside setting of Cavo Paradiso.
Leading the way to the island’s effervescent nightlife scene, Mykonos beach clubs and bars hold a very special place in everyone’s hearts. Combining an amazing setting with gourmet delights, high-quality entertainment and elite guests, the beach clubs of Mykonos have made it to the top of the world.
From the ultra-chic Nammos beach bar on Psarou to the hip and trendy beach bar of Scorpios on Paraga beach along with the sophisticate bar of Kalua, the extreme Tropicana on Paradise beach and newly introduced Rakkan chosen by the younger crowds, there is a beach club in Mykonos for all tastes and preferences.
If again you seek a more discreet kind of entertainment, a dinner and a glass of bubbling wine at any of the Katikies hotels will work as magic. For more chic and trendy options of entertainment in Mykonos you may join the Klepsydra Club and let as match your desires.
