Mykonos is mostly known to international tourists as the Greek island of parties and thousands of visitors arrive during summer months knowing that they are going to get little to no sleep. The island’s small town has grown over the years in order to accommodate the tourists that come every year to get a glimpse of the island where life is an ongoing party.
Around midnight, the bars and clubs located in the town of Mykonos or the seaside start playing music, inviting anyone and everyone to join. The party lasts all night and sometimes until the early hours, with clubs closing at around 7am, when the party moves to the beach.
Here are some of Mykonos’ most famous drinking spots:
Super Paradise Beach Club: Famous for its gay-friendly environment and spontaneous parties. All anyone needs to do is shout out the word and the magic begins. The beach instantly takes a club-like atmosphere, with people dancing and having fun, enjoying their drinks under the sun.
Cavo Paradiso Club: Opened in 1993 and known for organizing the most amazing house music events since. It is currently one of the island’s hottest nightlife destinations, with a huge dance floor, a swimming pool and a breathtaking view of the Aegean.
ASTRA Bar: Designed by world-renowned artist Minas, it is a place that incorporates retro decor and design under a dome that resembles an observatory. Rather than opting for a huge space, the owner decided on quality over quantity, so the bar can only accommodate a small but eclectic crowd.
Pierros Gay Bar: A legendary and world-famous gay bar, it is situated in the town of Mykonos and hosts amazing parties throughout the summer. It is an exclusive and classy club with a great reputation, organizing a variety of events ranging from wild parties to drag shows. It offers a wide selection of elegant cocktails and drinks, and keeps its guests dancing all night with great music.
Scandinavian Bar: Located in the heart of the town, it is one of Mykonos’ oldest and most famous meeting points. People are invited to dance until the morning and enjoy fancy cocktails and drinks. The open air disco dance floor is always full and attracts those who like high energy music, while a patio area exists for those who would rather relax and enjoy their drink.
