It's only was the first of two rock bars in Thessaloniki I went to. It doesn't have any live music, but it plays fantastic music on their huge room filling sound system. The people are also really cool.
Dress Code: Casual. It's a rock bar, not a house club.
Ladhahdika is a quartier near the port area .It was an old market place than they decide to build an entertainment center.Now you can find many bars cafes live music shops etc etc
I suggest you to visit the area to feel the greek style nightlife
My Lonely Planet guide book for Greece said that Ladadika was the "in" place to go out at night in Thessaloniki. This is not true, or more rather, this is no longer true. Ladadika was the cool place to go out at night about 5 years ago according to my Greek girlfriend, but it has become less frequented by club-goers. I was told that since Ladadika is now frequented by many Albanians that many Greeks no longer go there.
The "cool" places are now in the city center east of Ladadika - from Aristotelus onward towards the White Tower. This is true especially during the winter and cooler weather months. The places to go out at night during the summer is Kalamaria near the water and also the large clubs that exist around the airport area, which just so happens to be the farthest section of the city away from where the Albanian majority live.
Nice place where some jazz acts come through along with other types of cover groups. Had a decent time. Cute servers. Good mix of older & younger crowd. No one seemed to be under 21 though. Drinks were expensive. I was drink Gin and Tonic. Only had 3 and I don't know what kind of Gin I was even getting, but it cost me 30 euros. I was told by my friend I was with that the prices increase according to who is playing.
Dress Code: Everyone in Greece dresses up even if they're going to McDonalds.
This is unbelievable how greeks like their familiar music. Usually if you go out during the weekend and arent really fond of listening to this kind of music it is quite hard to find place where would be played more international stuff. One of such places may be Casla, a quite cheap bar in Ladadika. It is a bit small place and during weekends quite full with people but you can try if listening to top-ten greek hits will be too tiring for you
For those who like dancing the best place to go is the area of Ladadika, it is a historical, renovated, very nice place where are held most of clubs. It is near the port area. There are plenty of different places you can choose among. My favourite was X-Club especially on wendesdays, when there was 80-music, and additionally the ladies' night. Usually the entrance to such places is between3-6 euro, and one drink is included.
The picture is from a great concert of U2 at the port of the city (26/9/1997). The nightlife there is so alive, there are numerous choices.
I'd suggest you to visit "Ladadika", a historical old neighbourhood, which was saved by the big fire in 1917. Many renovations have been taken place there, a lot of bars, restaurants, clubs are housed at this attractive place. If you prefer seafood, go to the tavernas in Aretsou, at the coast...
Ladadika used to be an old market place which was almost abandoned/forgotten and about 10 years ago was converted to an area full of bars and cafes. It's probably the most 'In' area in Thessaloniki, whatever 'In' means.
