Openly known as a gay-friendly island, Mykonos has a few hotspots where straight people and gay people alike can enjoy a wild night of clubbing. Babylon, located near the well-known Panagia Paraportiani church, is a predominantly gay club that hosts regular drag shows and theme parties, with a fun playlist of techno, mainstream music and even oldies until the wee hours of morning. Add to that a seaside location on the pier and cool decor, and you get the perfect hangout for nights with your crew.
A lounge bar and dance club that attracts a varied clientele, @54 is a recent addition to the Mykonos nightlife scene. With a sleek and chic interior and a terrace from which you can snap perfect sunset pics, @54 is a fun place to be. Mingle with the crowd while sipping champagne, or dance the night away with your BFFs.
A popular meeting point on the island, Skandinavian Bar and Club is located in the heart of the main town. Here, you can dance until the morning and drink tantalising cocktails. Whether you prefer to relax and chat in the patio area or show your best moves on the open-air dance floor, you are sure to have memorable nights here.
We know Paradise Beach is a popular beach on the island, and Tropicana Beach Bar & Restaurant may be one of the many reasons why. An all-day place where you start your day with breakfast and coffee, lunch on some tasty fare or enjoy a never-ending beach party with a carefully curated DJ set and refreshing cocktails, Tropicana may quickly become your new home away from home.
A beach popular with gay and straight partygoers and sun-worshippers, Super Paradise Beach is home to the Super Paradise Beach Club, where parties start in the afternoon and last until the early hours of the morning. An obligatory stop in Mykonos, Super Paradise Club is known for its spontaneous parties, so don’t be surprised if your sunshine-soaking session suddenly turns into a wild party on the beach.
Another party institution, Paradise Beach Club is set on the shore of the picturesque Paradise Beach. Attracting thousands of visitors every summer, the club is known for inviting many high-profile DJs onto its decks, including Afrojack, Dimitri from Paris, Avicii, TV Rock, Dirty South and Dash Berlin. If you are a serious EDM lover, you cannot miss this beach club.

Void is the new kid on the block. Premiering in July, the new club has already enticed many with its calendar filled with names such as Damian Lazarus, Black Coffee, Apollonia and Art Department. Set to open from midnight until 8am, we predict Void will quickly become a hotspot for partygoers.
Known for its eclectic crowd, unique atmosphere and character, Astra is somewhat of a hybrid between a nightclub and a lounge bar. While the vibe may be more casual in the early evenings, at dusk it turns into a hip joint where you can rub shoulders with people from all walks of life. While space may be limited, Astra compensates with its exclusive vibe. A place to be seen, Astra is definitely a club where you can truly experience the Mykonian way of life.
For those looking for an alternative to the maddening beach parties, Scorpios is the place to be. Set on Paraga Beach, this hedonistic beach club, which also works as a restaurant, offers laid-back beach fun, people-watching sessions and excellent cocktails, while at sundown, a curated line-up of local and international DJs offers memorable parties. Be warned: the nights at Scorpios are simply addictive.
