Greece has more than 6,000 islands and inlets across the Aegean and Ionian Sea, though only 227 are inhabitable. That still provides more than enough land for beach bars, clubs and local watering holes for you to enjoy.


Alemagou Beach Bar, Mykonos

Located on Ftelia Beach, Alemagou is a bar and restaurant with open stonewalls and thatched umbrellas, a great spot to have a lazy day on the beach.


Coo Bar, Ios

Conveniently located on Chora’s main square, Coo Bar is a minimally designed lounge with atmospheric lighting and modern décor, specializing in a soft R and B and hip-hop soundtrack.


Amalour, Hydra

Amalour is known for attracting a slightly older crowd in their 30s, as well as their eclectic soundtrack that goes from funk to heavy metal to hip hop to Latin.


Hamam, Kos

As its name implies, Hamam is a club housed in a former Turkish bath, providing stylish décor both indoors and outdoors on the beach.


Kira Thira, Santorini

This is one of the oldest bars in Fira, a jazz club that has been catering to locals for the past 30 years. This laid-back cave bar is decorated with instruments and vinyl records, and is a must see for jazz lovers.


Chaplin’s, Crete

Located in the town of Rethymnon, Chaplin’s is less known for silent-era film and more for its track selection focused on rock and indie music. A pleasant atmosphere and large selection of beer draw a variety of people.
