Dress Code: Neat Casual... but its mykonos.. so anything goes.. haha
It is situated in the most atmosperic location of the island. Has a swimming pool at the shape of Mykonos. It is the meeting point of the clubbers from all over the world. Nice music, cool faces and unbeatable drinks. Almost every day guest Djs from all over the world guarantee your entertainment.
Along with Space, Cavo Paradiso makes up one half of the Mykonos superclub scene. I actually suspect its more 95%, as this place is one of the best nightclubs I have ever visited.
Located above Paradise beach (ie a 10min taxi ride from Mykonos town), the frontage is a fairly unassuming dry stone building (a la Pacha). Following this round brings you out onto the main dancefloor, and it just keeps getting better from here. Multi-levelled outdoor dance floors, podiums and seating areas, a full sized swimming pool and lastly, an unobstructed view out over the cliffs of Paradise beach and the ocean beyond.
You won't have trouble finding out who’s on as posters are taped to just about every lamp post in Mykonos town. They also operate a SMS guestlist for free entry & drink – just text the number on the posters before 8pm. (Although obviously this is just a ploy to get you into the club as early as possible, and really just saved us 5 euros each). Like most European clubs, this place doesn't get going until well after midnight - you need to be here for the sunrise anyway...
We were there for the closing party with 3 DJ’s I’ve never heard of.
Music started off promisingly, but soon deteriorated into a random mish mash of garage, deep house & techno. This is never a problem for a posing European crowd and everyone else (except us and some Australians) seemed to enjoy it.
If you know anything about good house music, then only come here for the “named” international DJ’s.
Unsurprisngly for the coolest club in Mykonos, drinks are unfeasibly expensive – bottles of barcadi breezers 10 euros each and manky Mythos beer 8.
Taxis back to town shouldn’t be too much of a problem as you just jump into one dropping off the next punters.
Dress Code: Exclusive european house club = the usual = none strangely
Located left on the hill at Paradise beach, looks like a castle with a pool in shape of Mykonos and bars in different levels. There is a big parking space and a canteen outside the club where you can have some snacks before entering or after clubbing. The dancefloor is big and right in front of the decks unfortunately we went on a Sunday night and it was pretty empty ...
This club is more than just a club, its really an awesome experience. We looked forward to checking out Cavo Paradiso all week and the time we had really lived up to it. The surroundings are amazing, its on a cliff overlooking the beautiful Aegean sea, it is outdoor but most parts are covered, the music is great and so are the drinks. Even though they are quite expensive, none cheaper than 12 euro or so, but every euro you will spend is well worth it!
Dress Code: Casual, I wore flip flops I think.., I just wouldn't wear a bathing suit
Absolutely outstanding club! By far the best in Mykonos. You must see this place, built on a cliff, partially outside, is know as "the" after hours club.. I left at 7am and there was a line up of 30+ people waiting in line to get in! 25 euro cover charge, worth every cent..
The DJ was world class, it was impossible not to dance all night long..
the crowd was 26-40 years of age.
Dress Code: Dress to impress.
