Mykonos Nightlife

Known as the party playground of Europe and famed for its nightlife, Mykonos has some of the most exciting clubs and bars in the Mediterranean, providing a fantastic night out for the more sophisticated traveller.

Often compared to the Balearic island of Ibiza, Mykonos has a pumping party scene. Head to Caprice and sip on a cocktail while the sun sets before heading out for a night on the town. The island is known as one of the world's most popular gay hangouts; it's not surprising that a hedonistic party scene exists here with gay clubs like Pierro's, Ramrod and Porta all located prominently in central Taxi Square, and almost always packed to the ceilings in the summer months. Bars with live jazz bands, rock, house and blues line the streets, guaranteeing a good night out for all. Those keen for a spot of traditional Greek music and dancing best head to Thalami.

Although there are many more bars than clubs, after hours spots abound here too, and Paradise Beach is the place to go with popular haunts like Cavo Paradiso or the Paradise Club being the places of choice with large pools, DJs, theme nights and fantastic views - a great way to watch the sun rise.
