Mykonos is a cosmopolitan island of the Aegean sea, one of the most famous European islands during the summer period. Known worldwide for its pelicans, wonderful beaches and crowded bars, it won’t let you down with its countless nightlife options. Here’s a list of some of the most dynamic bars in Mykonos.
Alley Bar is located in the heart of the island, in Chora Mykonos, just some meters away from Poseidon Hotel. This amazing cafe and cocktail bar is open all day long, offering relaxation and entertainment under the sounds of lounge music. Enjoy a coffee or a fresh juice accompanied with snacks, or top refreshing cocktails later on (you will love the ‘Mykonean Secret’).
Queen of Mykonos is a champagne and cocktail bar at the center of Chora. It’s a great a meeting point in the heart of the cosmopolitan island for those who want to relax and have fun, enjoying a coffee or a drink in an excellent atmosphere. Open from early in the morning, you can sit outside and enjoy your coffee, or later on have a cocktail at the bar, with endless fun guaranteed until the early morning hours.
Located in a great spot in the picturesque Little Venice, Kastro Bar offers an amazing view of the bay, especially at sunset, accompanied by the soothing sounds of classical music. The wine and cocktail list is great, including the highly recommended great Alpha Malagouzia wine and the Lemon Tart cocktail. Also serving dishes of high quality, this one isn’t to be missed.
Located on the crowded and trendy Paranga beach, Kalua is a favorite summer destination, open all day long to provide sun-worshipers with snacks, drinks and great live DJ sets. The motto of Kalua is ‘every day is a beach party’; visit it to find out you for yourself.

Galleraki cocktail bar is an alternative destination in Mykonos, quite different to the mainstream touristy bars of the island. It is housed at a typical white Aegean building dating back to the 19th century with a view of the windmills and Little Venice. Here you will enjoy fresh cocktails (try the Katerinaki Cocktail and you won’t regret it), interesting DJ sets and great events.
Semeli lies right by the sea in Little Venice and after its renovation, designed by the acclaimed Greek architect Pavlos Ninios, it maintains its dominant position in the island’s nightlife. Amazing cocktails (try the ‘surprise cocktail’, don’t ask what it is, just try it!) and large joyful crowds will ensure you will have loads of fun by the sea.
Located in Tria Pigadia, right in the island’s heart, Astra is the place for unforgettable parties with loud music, electric crowds and endless dance. Reference point of Mykonos over the last decades, loved by the international stars who visit it. Address: Astra, Tria Pigadia, Mykonos, Greece
