ERALDIKON: Rock pub
We really liked this small café pub which is located in the Old Town. Agias Sofias street is a busy alley so no wonder why the café is full of people in the morning because it has tables outside (pic 2). The reason I put it under the Nightlife Tips is because we visited only in the evenings, when we stayed inside(pic 1) and listened to some great music, usually more into the gothic rock/post punk scene.
Aleka was always there to serve us, friendly and smiling, they have a good variety of beers but also wine and other drinks. I cant remember the prices but it was one of the cheapest pubs in town, about 2e for a glass of wine and 3,5e for a pint. We visited again some other evening (we couldn’t remember the name and we were asking for Aleka’s place!), the music was again good so we drunk many pints, some mavrodafni wine and we left happy and full the pub. If I was a local that would be my favorite place.
The word Eraldikon comes from the predicants that used to announce in public the medieval years and who during the horse races had to known the blazon ensigns of the racers. These ensigns decorate some of the stone walls of the pub. It is housed on a building that was built in 1853.
HOOK: trendy nightclub
This is one of the clubs that are located opposite the central/popular Spianada square in city center. We could be to any other club like this, there’s no much difference between, always packed with people, expensive drinks, good for a Saturday night though if you want to have fun and dance with some popular hits.
It is located inside one of these old mansions opposite Spianada square (pic 1), I cant say much about the interior as the light conditions were very poor (come on, how will we enjoy the nice dancers, eh?) but I noticed many items from boats (pic 2)
We drunk a wine, a beer and one ursus and paid 21 euros! (that hurts I know…). It is open 21.00-03.00(fri-sat till 5.00am)
SAVE: metal club
SAVE is a small tiny rock pub that plays good music if you are into hard rock/metal music. We loved the day that the dj was playing classic hits from the 80s but it was kind of boring (are we getting old?) the second night when it was more into modern metalcore (some young metalheads seemed to enjoyed it though). The walls are decorated with covers/paintings from some popular rock/metal albums.
We tried wine (3e) and beer of course (5e for a pint). The staff were very friendly as expected in a rock pub and the atmosphere was great, full of happy rockers (you know how it is, headbanging, dozen of beers, the metal community). There is a small problem with the smoke though but that’s a problem everywhere in Greece :(

All the clubs under the sun.: Frenetic nightspot, club/publand...
Simply head into Kavos centre and check out the vast ammount of bars, clubs and mash up venues. If you want to party then this place is the place to be. With so many clubs in a large area, literally all in two streets, you cannot imagine until you get there how many places there are to choose from. From kareoke bars to full on clubs with foam party's, open air clubs and outside dancefloors, to lively bars where the staff try to give you alcohol poisoning with the ammount of booze they poor down you necks. Plenty of saucy bar games played but also some bars where it's not quite as in yer face. Not really for anyone looking for upmarket venues or elders (unless well up for it). Typically for the young un's 18-30's. Music played from rave anthems, old skool, R n B, hip hop, drum n bass, house, dance and trance, indie, rock, garage and tons more.
Dress Code: No dress code anywhere, although if your street cred. wants to stay in tact then dress well.

GREEK NIGHT: TRADITIONAL DANCING
We went to a traditional Greek night at Glopus. The food was nice for starter we had a plate with cheese pie, chorizo sausage, feta cheese, meatballs and chicken with salad. For main course we had chicken with rice and chips, for dessert we had watermelon. With as much red or white wine as you wanted, the evening was a success. The entertainment was fantastic with singing and dancing, fire and the traditional smashing of plates. There was also a belly dancer.
Dress Code: The dress code was smart casual
Pub BARA: typical club
We went there because of a friend but it’s off the beaten path so no need to look for it (you wont find it easily), the big wooden front door(pic 1) wont even give you any hit that this is open.
The interior is dark(pic 2) but nicely litted with smooth red lights and candles. Of course, after some drinks we could hardly see what's left in our glasses :)
The dj was playing some pop and rock hits from the 80s-90s, we had good time for 2-3 hours there. We took beer (4e for bottle, no draft beer there, a big disappointment) and sangria wine (5e)

Fouxia Apartement.: Writing in the Diary of a Madman.
Whenever we undertake a journey to a particular country we always want to know all about the surroundings, it’s history, it’s culture, which cities to visit, which hikes to undertake, et cetera. In advance to the journey we browse over the internet to get certain information and read travel books just to make sure we won’t miss out on anything.
Once we’re travelling we like to talk to the local people about their own country, their own region and those conversations will retrieve lots of extra information about some beautiful spots to visit, the ultimate restaurant or sometimes a particular area to avoid.
Ever since we had our own personal travel site and this one at Virtual Tourist we like not only to undertake the journey, but also write about it for everyone to enjoy. Just to make sure we won’t forget the details of our journey we write is all down in a diary. We have given the dairy the name “Diary of a madman” and it contains all the information we have gathered. We like to make the diary more beautiful to glue in some pictures out of folders and also the entrance tickets to museums, National Parks, bus tickets, et cetera.
This way we’re able to tell all our friends about our travels. For Virtual Tourist we can reproduce all the information for (hopefully) solid tips with lots of good details that will help you in your travels. Besides that it’s always fun to read about a journey we took for example 7 or 8 years ago and read about what we exactly did and how we experienced it. We also have managed to keep in touch with the local people we talked to and do nourish these contacts. Especially at the travelogue section of each location you can see some pages out of the Diary of a madman. Yes, we know, it's written in Dutch, but you'll have an impression on how it looks. And maybe you can tell us how you remember all the information for your tips. Enjoy!
