You have not experienced a real Greek summer until you have stayed up all night to welcome the dawn. Life on many Greek islands begins after 7pm when the quiet towns and villages come alive with people, colors and sounds. Paros is notorious for its nightlife, the young trendy crowds, and the party life. Below we have chosen the best of Paros’s bars to start (or end) the night.
Sousouro is a cute little corner bar in Naoussa known for its artsy ambiance and imaginative drinks. An all-day bar, it specializes in delicious super fresh smoothies and healthy breakfasts in the mornings and creative cocktails at night. Tucked away in what, at a first glance, seems like a quiet cobblestone alley during the day, this tiny bar transforms into an absolute hot-spot for people-watching at night. If you are lucky enough to get a table during Paros’ nocturnal ‘rush-hour’ you are likely to experience the endless catwalk of the well-dressed, tanned and trendy crowds. All you need is a stylish jar of Moscow Mule. Cheers!
This stylish bar on the waterfront of the whitewashed port of Naoussa offers a location so picturesque it has to be seen to be believed. Fouska is a popular cocktail bar with a unique ambiance and design, as well as great music and the most trendy chilled-out island vibe one could hope for. The outside seating area is perfect for romantic tête-à-têtes by candlelight, while the inside cozy bar area is a hot-spot for young and fashionable crowds. A perfect spot to show off your island chic style and your sexy summer tan.
Kosmos Cocktail Bar
Branded by the locals as the king of cocktail bars in town, Kosmos definitely takes bar tending seriously. Kosmos focuses on quality drinks as well as maintaining a dynamic musical presence hosting a number of DJs and live music events. Following the Greek island style, in the summer the bar places its tables outside on the picturesque cobblestone alley, where its guests can enjoy a uniquely chilled ambiance in the candlelight. Still relatively undiscovered by foreign visitors, this hidden gem is a charming spot to enjoy the island vibe together with quality music and unbeatable drinks.
Pirate Bar is located in the port town of Parikia, among an elaborate maze of cobblestone alleys. Being one of the oldest buildings around, it has the quaint decoration of an old island house. It is a unique spot in Paros to enjoy not only excellent drinks but the most cozy and snug candlelight feel. The building itself is a piece of history with marble columns and whitewashed arched walls. Bohemian crowds love it for its ambiance, delicious strong cocktails and friendly atmosphere. It is a great spot in winter too.

Sativa Music Bar
With warm yellow walls and a subtle new age vibe, Sativa Music Bar is a popular spot for live music and music events. Located in a two-storey house, it offers ample internal and external space and a very relaxing chilled out environment. The Moroccan inspired decor is warm and inviting. Sativa opens in the morning as an all-day restaurant, and it is ideal for breakfasts, brunches and light snacks made from fresh ingredients and products carefully chosen from local producers. At night it transforms to a lively music venue with excellent cocktails.

If you are looking for something less mainstream, then Resalto is the place to go. Located right on the beach of Dryos, it has fantastic sea views to accompany the classic rock, jazz and blues music. This bar definitely does not lack character, and it attracts a more sophisticated and alternative crowd. Outdoor seating is available on the laid back patio for super romantic nights. A unique experience for those looking for something more original and intimate. They don’t have a dress code, so just bring yourself!

Entropy is the epitome of a fun night out in Paros.
