I must say, as the title suggests, it's not normally my kind of thing to travel overseas and go to "English pubs" or "Irish bars" - I mean, what's the point? I was taken here, however, by Cypriot friends, and found it to be a great place. OK, it serves all the usual UK brews, Kilkenny, Guinness, John Smith's and even Blackthorn cider, has the obligatory large screen TV's showing English football, pool tables and so on, but it really is a bit of a fun place to hang out. It's also cheaper than a lot of places further into town. As the photo shows, it is open from 1030 until 0200 with food served, so you have no excuse for not having a good time!
The owners Angelos and Doxoulla are really friendly and the clientele seems to be a little less "boisterous" than the normal "English pub" crowd in Paphos. Worth a visit.
Dress Code: Whatever you like within reason although you are not allowed in the bar bare-chested.
The bar is like an addiction. Just one visit and you will return to it time and time again. A popular place downtown in Paphos Tomb of the Kings, the place provides an excellent atmosphere to enjoy your evening drink as you watch European football on large plasma screens, that too with English commentary.
Yeah...it's in the name...TC's Rock bar ROCKS!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at TC's and the party atmosphere is great!
The staff really know how to keep new guests and their regulars happy with great bar food, great drinks and best of all, can maintain at atmosphere that never lets you want to go home.
This place is addictive....some of the best holiday memories are at this bar...and I miss the friends I've made there already!
The music is fantastic too! You don't even have to be a fan of Rock Music to appreciate the ongoing party mood that continues from early evening right until the early hours.
Probably the oldest and one of the best clubs in Paphos ...but then again there isn't much in the way of competition!! If u go in any time before 1.30am u look a bit of a fool as things don't get going till at least 2am!! Girls usually get in for free, but if they can take money off you, they generally will. Drinks are expensive, very expensive and be prepared to nudge shoulders with old sleazy blokes over at the bar sipping whisky. Generally a good club especially if u like a bit of r'n'b, trance and garage!
Dress Code: pretty much anything and everything!!
This wild lively bar is just bursting with atmosphere and good spirit! Buzzing with the latest R'n'B this bar attracts both locals and tourists and is without a doubt one of the koolest bars in Paphos! It has a generously sized dance floor and a large bar serving every kind of delicious concoction thought about! Located in a perfect position in the centre of Bar Street, you can sit inside or outside. There's usually someone around offering a couple of free shots and if you come across naughty Nick I'm sure he'll sort you out with a free cocktail or two. You really cannot miss Woody'z, especially on the nights they inflate the massive Woody Woodpecker on the roof! We love it!
Dress Code: Anything...!!
This is a large Australian/Sports themed pub absolutely full of Aussie style and charactor. Situated on 'Tomb of the Kings' Road serving good quality food and drinks all day at very reasonable prices. The interior of this pub is just so unique and inspiring, decorated with everything from sports banners to real tropical birds! The Outback has a strong family atmosphere, especially in the evening when it comes alive with karaoke, shows and games. Very much recommended.
Dress Code: Anything...!!
Absolutely brilliant, yet totally cheesy 70's and 80's old fashioned disco. Dance the night away to those famous 'Wham', 'Abba' and 'Michael Jackson' tunes. You can even buy one of those hideous big coloured wigs or some other sparkling accessory to get you in the mood for dancing! Good selection of drinks, though quite expensive, largish dancefloor, gets busy after 1am.
Dress Code: Anything...!!
Do not be fooled by the inviting exterior or cheesy tunes coming from within. This is not a pub, it is an undercover brothel for the owner 'Evis'. Unfortunately, he has an uncontrollable obsession for hitting on and harrassing his female guests as they attempt to innocently take a trip to the downstairs loo! And believe us, age, race, religion, looks, marital status and all that means absolutely nothing to him! Go to this pub at your own risk. Girls... Stay in pairs where ever possible. Men... Don't let your teenage daughters, wifes and mother in-laws out of your site!
Dress Code: Anything...!!
On a recent trip to Paphos my husband and I spent most nights in Robin Hood Pub. There are genuinely nice English speaking staff, and plenty of free drinks to try on entry! With wide open 'window' areas to sit, and strong blowing fans to cool you off after a hot day, this is definitely the place to sit and watch the world go by! It had great music and very reasonably priced drinks.
Across the road from Robin Hood is Tropical nights, owned by the same people but is a karaoke bar instead. These two bars offer the best of both worlds for families and couples. I would definitely reccommend a trip to either!
Dress Code: No dress code, most men wore shorts and shirts, ladies dresses and skirts / shorts and tops.
There's some fantastic live music on Thu, Fri & Sat night at the Evis Pub. Danny (formally one half of the Blues Brothers) sings a wide variety of songs to suit all tastes on a Thu, real family entertainment. Sat night is great too with a talented guy singing the likes of Barry White and Tina Turner - and doing both very well.
There's a fab new roof top bar opened on the top floor (where else would you open a roof top bar!!) called Everest. It's all state of the art and very modern - you'll be surprised when you get up there. It's a great place to watch the sun set.
As for all these comments about Evis - there's no doubt he's a ladies man but who can blame him? He's a good-looking, single guy so why not. As for this so-called 14 year old - sounds more like an ex-girlfriend trying to get revenge to me. I doubt this incident ever happened. And if it did where the hell where her parents!!!?
Dress Code: Casual
We visited the Rose on a saturday night in October by chance and boy were we in for a surprise.
I'm not being rude to other performers but we truly never expected to see such a class act on vacation in Paphos. The band was AXIS and they really made our holiday. We subsequently discovered that it was Howard Moss on lead guitar but the band were an outstanding 3 piece.
Their performances of Cream, Floyd, Rory Gallagher covers were amazing as to were other songs which we assumed were originals as we'd never heard them before.
Having paid upwards of £50 to go to what turned out to be average gigs in UK , it was a welcome relief to see such talent for the price of a pint.
The beer at the Rose was good too. the draught keo was ok & the prices reasonable.
Any criticisms? Maybe the seating for a music venue left something to be desired as the view of the band was restricted. But the place was clean and the service good.
Rock on Rose and rock on Axis! thanks for making our holiday!
Dress Code: jeans, shorts seemed ok
Visited Evis on a Monday & saw the really excellent Irish guitarist Howard Moss. Some originals & some great classic standards. He has a good voice too. If you are in Paphos seek this guy out. I think he also plays in a rock band called Axis but sadly I didn't stay in Cyprus long enough to see them.
Other nights the entertainment was mediocre to say the least, An Elvis impersonator on the Tuesday, not bad but two a penny these days was probably the best of the rest.
Not sure about these wierd comments & postings about Evis himself- assume he's the owner. If he's upset some girls then thats a shame; girls on holiday need to be a little more aware & far more careful.
Anyway, music is the theme - go to the Evis Pub but only if Howard Moss is performing there.
Rainbow is probably one of the better places to go to for clubbing. Located on 'Bar Street' this place gets pretty lively after 2pm when other bars on the street have to turn their music off (Rainbow gets away with it as they are underground). Not really sure what the policy is on paying to get in, some paid some didn't... But as far as I heard if you are one of the unlucky ones who gets asked to pay it was around £5 each. It's not cheap in here but it's a good night out, as it get packed, there's generally a good vibe, the tunes are banging and there's a good mix of people in there from locals to tourists.
