Skiathos nightlife is both vibrant and cosmopolitan, with its selection of bars, clubs and restaurants second to none. Enjoy a pint at a typical Brit pub, or go local at a traditional bouzouki bar. There are also classy jazz bars and blues joints to visit. On the waterfront of the old harbour try the Psaradika ouzeri, or head for the outdoor café on the Bourtzi peninsula. There are outdoor theatre performances of Greek tragedies, music and dance at Bourtzi, and the Paradiso outdoor cinema is another must. Just off Papadiamantis there are music bars and nightclubs. Borzoi, the oldest club on the island, features a old olive press in its garden. For those who like to immerse themselves in traditional forms of entertainment Greek music is best enjoyed at the Apothiki Music Hall or Stones. You can see traditional theatre, concerts and dance at the Bourtzi Cultural Centre, or enjoy open-air cinema at the Attikon. Skiathos is partly so popular because it caters to both tourists who like a peaceful holiday spent exploring natural beauties, and those who hunger for an exciting nightlife and fun party scene. As a result of this it is neither a party centre nor a quiet, relaxed resort, but it should manage to please everyone.
