The Top Bars In Paros, Greece
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!

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.
