Known to many as the nightlife capital of the Greek Islands, Mykonos is the stomping ground for hedonists and party-goers looking for a great choice of live music and unique clubbing experiences. Check out these exciting venues and see how many you can visit on your next trip to Greece.

The island of Mykonos was made for carousers young – and older. There’s just something in the air, not to mention the cocktails. If Santorini is for honeymooners, this Greek party destination, in the same island cluster, is for party socialites lured by its major-league DJs and hulking superclubs pumping dance tracks until dawn. Pack your skimpiest gear – yes, bikinis count as suitable nocturnal attire – and get yourself down to some of the best nightclubs on Mykonos.

Thinking of a Greek getaway beyond Mykonos? Book our eight-day island-hopping trip from Athens to Santorini – highlights include a boat trip around Milos, a cooking class on Naxos, and catching that famous sunset over the caldera in Santorini.

Tropicana Club


Watching sightseers sip cappuccinos here by day, you’d swear this low-rise, whitewashed spot in Little Venice was a sleepy coffee shop. But once the sunset beats swell to after-dark house beats, the party here rocks on until 5.30am, with dancers on the waterfront terrace watching the moonlight bouncing on the water. Lots of revellers decamp here for a sunset drink, but if you go after 11pm, you’ll get the full hands-in-the-air experience.


Overlooking the port at Mykonos town, this cavernous, all-welcome gay bar starts early but cranks out the tunes until 4am. The inclusive vibe means you’ll find a mix of age groups and attitudes dancing under the cluster of dozens of suspended disco balls, as hits from pop divas Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears boom from the speakers. The friendly, let’s-dance spirit is contagious here – especially after a few of the house Appletinis.

Moni Mykonos

A boho-hipster crowd slinks into this intimate Mykonos town cave bar after dark to get down to its mix of trippy house and EDM tracks. Strobe lighting flickers across the dense crowd of dancers, all sipping Moscow mules and premium tequilas in crochet dresses, designer kaftans and shirts unbuttoned to the navel. Come here to rub shoulders with beautiful people, while tapping into the island’s stylish, upmarket scene right in the main port.


Up in the heights behind Mykonos’s main port, you’ll find this multi-level concrete behemoth – where a vast dancefloor spreads beneath a hypnotic light installation overhead. Rather than a bar that spins tunes, this is a late-night destination for hardcore clubbers, attracting DJ talents such as Guy Gerber, Black Coffee and Nic Fanciulli. There’s a lofty VIP section that requires a big spend but all the atmosphere is on the level-one dancefloor, where you’ll be showered with balloons and confetti at the end of each euphoric set.
