I was in Chania at the end of May last year & it was pretty dead except for one or two bars, and those crowds were managable.

chania nightlife

by angelundercover

i used to live in Chania.There are plenty of bars and nightclubs around the old venetian harbour.it becomes more lively between the months of May- September with the busiest being june-August.
I visited in 2004 during the Olympics...an area called Platanias (on the beach) which is approximatelly 8km from the town centre has become fairly lively with clubs/pubs abd nightclubs.During hours buses go there or alternatively you can et a Taxi. However the area around the Venetian harbour is in the city and you can walk around and chose what you like.
In summer time a lot of the nightclubs open after midnight and usually things start happening well after midnight. Greeks usually have a late dinner around 9pm and then go to a bar or a club.
Even if you happen to be there when is not very touristy the area is lovely ...you can seat by the water and have a drink or a meal.
Have a great holiday.

If you are looking for a nightlife in Chania all year round DO NOT go to the Old Venetian Harbor. Fallow the sea going East. Past the Turkish part of town (the one you know) and right after that you will see THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of young greeks enjoying their life. THere is restaurant next to the restaurant, all brand new. Names like SOHO or Manhattan, etc. The son of the owner of the hotel Anemones we stayed in told us Old Town is for tourists, the new Harbour east od the old one is for greeks and young hip Europeans.
Well, we were walking through that part at night and boy was it a party!!!!

Me again,
It is on the AktiMiaouli str and it is about one mile long, really!!!!
Old Town is dead during the winter, however hotels and few restaurants are open. Anyway just ask local young people where their favorite place is. Greeks like to go out wearing their fancy designer clothes. ;-)

Travel Tips for Chania

A picturesque harbor

by jenn_d

Spend at least one day relaxing on the beach of Nea Hora and take a 30 minute after dinner stroll out to the lighthouse.
Chania was heavily bombed during WWII, but has survived enough to be regarded as Crete's most beautiful city.
The harbor is an interesting place to eat a meal. Be prepared to be bombarded by every maitre de along the waterfront seeking your business.
