This is one of the best-developed islands in Greece and receives a huge number of tourists every year. Often compared to Ibiza, Mykonos has the best party scene in the Greek islands with countless bars and clubs, known for their trendy decoration and the great music. Most night bars and clubs are concentrated in Chora and stay open till early in the morning. As Mykonos is a popular gay destination, many bars are only gay venues and organize drag queen parties.
The cosmopolitan and party atmosphere of Mykonos began in the 1960s, when the island flourished greatly with the arrival of many famous Athenians and world artists. Due to the world-class facilities, the island still receives many people from the upper class, such as artists and political personalities from all continents. However, it is also a place that attracts many younger generations and wild parties. From chic and expensive bars offering excellent drinks and food to modern clubs and cafeterias, Mykonos has it all. For those who prefer a more romantic night style, there is the famous neighborhood of Little Venice in Mykonos Town, with a great variety of bars at the beach front.
Whatever your preferences in music, you won’t be disappointed in Mykonos. One of our newest suggestions in Chora, right next to the renowned Pierro’s, is the new and refreshed Rock n’ Roll bar, which was soon established as a hot meeting point of the young Athenians from 20 to 40, who are fans of the original Athens downtown Rock n’ Roll with its 20 year history at the posh area of Kolonaki. At the Rock n’ Roll bar you will swing to all time classic rock hits, as well as beloved oldies but goodies of the 70’s and 80’s.
The smell of grilled fresh fish will drag you to traditional fish-taverns. You will sit back in the yard with the pergolas covered by grapevines, among the rest of the dedicated fans of this island-style tavernas. And be patient because during summer months fans are too many to be seated and served at once in the beautiful yards.
