Cocktails, dancing and clubbing all night: welcome to the nation that defined the meaning of a good time
Greece has fun everywhere: Athens, Thessaloniki, the Cyclades, Crete, Rhodes, Corfu, Santorini. And naturally at the world-renowned international hangouts: cosmopolitan Mykonos, Ios, Greece’s party island that attracts fans from all over the world, just like Hersonissos and Malia in Crete, Lagana in Zante and Kavos in Corfu.
Get to know the many faces of Greek nightlife: chill out at luxury hotels’ bars and the retro bars on the islands, where the moonlight shines brightly on the boats and sea. Dance at bars on organised beaches; enjoy shots on the house and cocktails being poured from dusk till dawn.
Ethnic, rock, Latin and Greek music playing at the stylish bars that decorate the islands’ alleyways, the streets of the alpine villages and cities throughout Greece, as speakers pump the latest House and Top 40 music at clubs, from guest DJs from all over the world. Parties and special events that keep the night alive until the first light. Fairs and festivals at village squares, where you’ll find yourself in the middle of a huge dance circle, hand in hand with the locals, taking part in their traditional folk dances.
When you leave Greece, the word ‘fun’ will have an entirely different meaning!
Nightlife in Athens
The night in Athens has just begun. From your hotel’s pool bar, you’ll see the Acropolis lit up, sending the signal: it’s time to have fun! You sip your cocktail slowly, while the music gets you into the groove, the city spread out in front of you, inviting you to join in its vibrant nightlife. Time to paint the town red.
You’ll discover thousands of ways to spend the evening: hip bars, open-air clubs and dancing on tables at bouzoukia, with live Greek music interspersed with DJ sets. No matter where you end up, you’re bound to have an unforgettable time.
Nightlife in Mykonos
In the Hora of cosmopolitan Mykonos, you’ll stroll along the whitewashed cobblestones, and come across countless famous bars and clubs frequented by well-heeled Athenians, stylish Europeans and celebrities. Design details with an elegant Cycladic aesthetic and smiling faces make for enchanting evenings filled with glamour and glitz.
The night rolls on, and you’ll head to a seaside club, overlooking the Aegean while you boogie till dawn. The next day, the party begins early. At the beach bars the DJ segues from chill to dance, the beat pulsates under the heat of the sun, while you dance with your feet in the sand, a glass of champagne in hand.
Nightlife in Thessaloniki
In the centre of Thessaloniki, the atmosphere is filled with a youthful energy, all day and all night. With every step you’ll discover hidden treasures: historic cafes, cosy bars as well as clubs with impressive designs in renovated industrial spaces and music venues in old warehouses, hosting live rock concerts.
Follow the locals to their favourite haunts, and let them guide you through the city’s secrets, sure to satisfy all styles and tastes. In ‘the bride of the north’ fun is a local tradition; just like the warm soup you’ll be served when the sun comes up.
