Corfu Nightlife

Known for its wild nightlife and its reputation as a bit of a party island, Corfu has enough late night entertainment to keep anyone going from dusk until dawn. From pumping clubs to laid back bars and lounges, Corfu is one destination where the nightlife cannot be avoided.

Corfu Town offers wonderful tavernas and restaurants along the waterfront, a great start to a big night out. Popular clubs include Apokalypsis, DNA and the Hippodrome, the only nightclub with a swimming pool. Most of the popular clubs worth visiting are located on Ethnikis Antistasseos, the main road heading north from the town, and party people should be willing to drop a bit of cash at these places.

Those more into music bars will find there are more than enough options to keep themselves busy, with everything from rock, soul, trance, ethnic, underground and even traditional Greek music bars, the choice is endless. Holiday resorts such as Kavos and Sidari are synonymous with nightlife and are particularly popular with British tourists.

There are, of course, other more chilled out options for those not interested in trying to have a conversation over a thumping bass line and blaring house music. Head to Kalami where laid-back bars abound, or for a tavern; Glyfada is a fabulous area to enjoy a sundowner, looking out over the sparkling Ionion Sea. There are orchestra and band concerts in the Old Fort in the summertime, and September brings the Corfu Festival and a number of ballet, opera, theatre and musical performances.
