As can be expected for an island which has such a booming tourist trade, the nightlife is energetic and lucrative and should have something to please everybody. Samos has a number of nightlife options ranging from restaurants, taverns and cafés to bars, bouzoukia (clubs with live Greek music) and nightclubs. Most people spend their evenings in Pythagorio, Vathi and Karlovassi, which offer the best night spots. The Pythagorio Harbour has a couple of good café bars, and the discos in town open late at night. Cinema fans will have to travel to Mytilini, a small village between Pythagorio and Vathy, to catch a movie. There is a good variety of restaurants ranging from those offering bland tourist food to wonderful local cuisine, fast-food, and resort staples like Chinese, Mexican and Indian. Those visiting off-season may find that the nightlife has become subdued and that some of the restaurants are closed or have reduced hours; if you are interested in the booming nightlife then summer is the best time to visit Samos.
