The most popular choice on the Athens Riviera, Island has been designed to provide a relaxing environment by the sea. Popular among locals, visiting celebrities and jet-setters, it includes a restaurant serving international cuisine, while the bar serves excellent cocktails. With weekly parties and an extensive following, this is no doubt one of the top venues in Athens for a night of fun and entertainment.


Located in Kolonaki, Cinderella is a disco-club where anyone feeling nostalgic for the 1970s will find solace. With its psychedelic décor, relaxed vibe and 1970s- and 1980s-oriented playlist, Cinderella quickly became a nightlife hub in Greece’s capital. As the club attracts a lot of people, make sure to reserve a table or come ‘early’; then all you have to do is get ready to surrender to the fun vibe and dance the night away.


Dybbuk is a popular club that attracts big crowds with its vibrant atmosphere. Described as a dance theater, Dybbuk features internationally acclaimed DJs on their decks until the small hours, but closes during the summer months. The club is synonymous with unforgettable parties and nights of fun.

Bolivar Beach Club

When you combine sun, sand, music and fun, you get Bolivar Beach Club. Located on Posidonos Avenue along the coast, Bolivar Beach Club is a well-located bar where you can swim, sunbathe and enjoy drinks, then dance the night away, all in one place. With guest DJs and parties during the summer months, Bolivar becomes another summer hotspot in Athens.

Rock n Roll

Rock n Roll is a favorite among Athenians. Now relocated to Kolonaki square, it still offers the same relaxed yet polished vibe. Although it’s closed during the summer months, the club has gathered a large crowd of followers who are absolutely in love with the music, the décor and the juicy burgers served in the restaurant area.
