    From sunset on many cafès and reataurant have "happy hour":everything costs the half and you can rest from a "heavy" day spent on the beach sipping a tasty cocktail looking at the sunset... then you can start walking up and down the seaside and do a lot of things: sit down to eat from pyttagiro to grilled fish, look at the boats, talk with some captains to buy a boat trip around the island (especially south), or just talking and looking at all the people from the world enjoying wonderful nights in Naxos!

Just walk, walk, walk and look at the shop-windows: you will certain find domething that suit you for a good price!

    Dress Code: none.

    Naxos Festival: Un unforgettable night

    View on Paros from the concert

    Since 1998 in Naxos Town in june there is a festival of local musica and dancers. Every night there's something different to see or listen to, the price is very good (about 10-12 €), you sit outside the Rocca Barozzi museum (where you also buy tickets), seeing the breathtaking panorama on Paros by night, they offer you different kind of wines and kytron. The night we decided to go a wonderful show of Bouzouki (the typical greek instrument created in the 20's) with a 10-year-old girl who played it with 2 adults and 2 young men who danced syrtaki all the time.... The most wonderful night in Cyclades!!!

    Dress Code: Everything is very informal starting from the manager!

    Clubs: Sleepless nights in Naxos (Part 2)

    by ngrivas Written Oct 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Naxos Ocean Club

    Naxos is not famous for its nightclubs, of course this doesn't mean that they don't exist, on the contrary the two big nightclubs of Naxos are getting packed during July and August. The first is "Ocean" club, just at the start of the port road, the club manager owns the cafe-bar just outside the club which is called "Mojo". What most people do is have a relaxing drink at "Mojo" and then just after midnight they get in the club for dancing.
    The second club is called "Abyss" and under new ownership it was recently renovated. It is the biggest club in Naxos, right next to the seawater of Grotta beach but sadly it is not open-air. The good thing about this club is that it never gets full, there is always space for some more ready-to-dance people.
    You should probably try them both and make your own decision about which is the best.

    Bars: Sleepless nights in Naxos (Part 1)

    by ngrivas Written Oct 8, 2007

    On The Rocks Bar

    Naxos is not the place where you can go and party like an animal but there are still places where you can have your drink with the loud sound of your favourite music. There are plenty bars along the port road (paralia). The first you will find is the "Escoba", kind of mexican, with latin music which makes people dance late at night. After this and almost at the middle of paralia there is the "Prime" bar, very famous between the Scandinavian tourists, it looks more like another cafe from outside, but later in the night and after a few shots the music is getting louder and people gather inside the bar where they dance at the sounds of the very latest pop hits. Two other, quite similar bars, opposite to each other are the "Jam" and the "On the Rocks", both with quite old rock music and cheap drinks.

    Naxos by night!

    There aren’t big nightclubs in the island or maybe I dont know them or maybe noone cares about them here! :)

    Go to a small pub at seafront for a drink, in some of them you can have a seat outside at the balcony and admire the view. Relax in a cafe, eat an ice cream or have a great dinner in a tavern. If you are a party animal keep your energy for islands like Paros, Mykonos or Santorini, they are near so you can visit them after some days. I also liked sitting at the beach with my girlfriend the after hours with a bottle of wine…

    Advertising poster

    While we were in Naxos, the island municipality organised a lot of concerts and traditional dancing in the Chora castle which is the ideal location for those events.
    Entrance is free, but you have to be there very early to get a seat.

    Seafront pubs and bars: Pre and After dinner drinks

    Aperitif at sunset

    The Chora seafront is lined with nice pubs (in between restaurants).
    Most of them are furnished in a trendy way, and serve nice cocktails.
    Those we liked the most are at the end of the promenade (not on the port side). They are very close one to the other, the only difference is the in furniture colour.

    Walking in the old town jumping from pub to pub!: Nightlife in Naxos

    Naxos by night

    Naxos is very lively in the night even if not wild as Paros or Mykonos, however there is a good choice of pubs, clubs etc...
    I suggest you Jam and On the Rock for whom like rock and punk music.
    Jam was established in 1975 and there is both the inside and outside bar. You can choose between 40.000 different songs (they plays also Clash and Ramones!!!!!!!!) and guitars for jammings are also available.
    For the lovers of '70 and '80 revival there is Veggera Club, where there is also a nice garden.
    Other most common dancing clubs are Ocean Dance and the Super Island on the Grotta Beach .
    Babylonia and Lakrinti (in the old town) are the right place for jazz and blues lovers.

    Dress Code: No special special requirements for dressing (but I have not tried Ocean Dance and Super Island)

    On the Rocks

    A good place where you can drink something after dinner listening to a good rock music and if you want you can also choose between a wide selection of Cuban Cigar.

    I suggest you the absinth!

    Some nights there is karaoke and live music!

    Dress Code: A particular Dress Code is not requested, just relax and be yourself!

    This taverna is right in the centre of Naxos town, just off the promenade. It is actually a restaurant or you can go for drinks. We crowded in there with a little group of us especially to be entertained with "Live Music" as advertised. We were not dissapointed and the muscians were great, the music (Greek of course) was just lovely and we had a lively night. Other people joined, this was a large group from S.America and among them were great dancers. One of the Greek customers got up and led all the others in some traditional dance, you can see from the photos! Very enjoyable. Plenty of snacks with the drinks!

    Dress Code: No special dress requirements observed.

    Jam is a lively little spot that has a DJ that plays great dance songs. It's set in a courtyard with other cafes and other bars. It's a great place to hang out and have a few drinks, and watch people.

    trata on the beach

    Imagine sitting right on the beach watching the sunset, while drinking a beerr. At Trata, you can do just that. This place is on the sand, with tourches lit, and a view that can't be beat. It's easy to find, just follow the main street ,and the sea out of town, and you'll run right into it.
