A special place, all painted white, with a private lounge and a big garden. Its chill out music makes yoy relax, at the beggining, but the hits that follow lift your sences up and makes you up till late at night.
A place that you dance from the morning till the dawn. Latin, reggae and mainstream music helps you be prepaired for the night. Nice coctails, and light salads for the hungry ones, will make you dance all day long.
We called into the Two Brothers early on the Sunday evening for a drink before the VT dinner. It was quite quiet, being around 7 pm, and there were only two other people in there. Quite a pleasant bar, nothing particularly special about the place.
Little did the staff know that this was going to be a BUSY night. After the meal, the VT crowd descended on the bar, and there was dancing until the small hours. You will find plenty of pictures on other people’s pages, but I can offer a couple of collages of stills from the video I took on my phone. The main picture isn’t mine though, belsaita kindly sent me a copy. Have a look at Kaspian's travelogue for more on the party.
You can get really drunk and dance on the bar, change the sign and push up your ta-ta's. Oh this night was amazing. Claus and I had something sinful planned, but it didn't pan out. Probably for the better.
the two brothers bar is a small bar in the center of thira where we went one night and had a great time.
the place has DJ and a dance floor and provided us with just what we needed.
Dress Code: wear whatever you want to wear as this place is really just a regular bar that happens to have a DJ and a dance floor.
So there you are dancing the funky monkey or the headless chicken in a small warm bar full of drunks like you. You are sweating more than you did at the beach today! Take it outside! Good bars have LOUD music and you can dance just outside the door. Just look at Giampiero6 leading the way! Just as much fun and a lot cooler. Do not forget to take your beer with you!
There was no one in Enigma... heavy drinkers at Murphy's and lots of good music at the Koo Club. We asked and asked, the taxi driver, the concierge, the waiter, tour guide and they all said they would go to Koo Club. We went and it was the only one going on. The other places had people hanging at the front door, but once inside they were dead.
granted Santorini is a couples island... and there is not a great singles scene except for the drunk girls in the corner, but you can make your own fun at the Koo Club.
Koo Club, you can see if it is going on from the front door, nothing is hiding and there is no scam.
Dress Code: club attire
In the late evening, the bars are playing music and serving up drinks. Some are right next door to each other and some are hidden away in the maze like alleys in Fira. For the most part, the shops are closed and a few were still open. After an entire day of being on the go and having a late dinner (typical dinner time is 8pm - 1pm) we were pretty much too tired to do much else. The weather in the evening was very comfortable.
When coming to Santorini, spend a few extra dollars and get a view of the caldera. Its worth it. At night, grab a bottle of wine from the local market, go out onto your balcony, and watch the boats in the caldera. When the cruise lines come by at night you can hear the music booming all the way up in Oia. I like going to clubs and bars as much as the next guy, but Oia is more about enjoying the peaceful surroundings.
It's a great Bar!!
It is soooo refreshing to go to a pub/club that changes it's DJ's therefore changing it's music. It really is a hidden Gem and it took me ages to find it; it's a shame that we went to the other bar until we left. Perrissa is quite quiet but i really found that thyis place picks up at around half ten/11 which was handy as i picked up at one!! Santorini is an island full of romance and energy it was good to find a place to indulge both, with good music and fine appertifs! Great.
Dress Code: No jeans no shoes but no nakedness!!
Casablanca has been the top, most controversy and unique bar in Santorini. It reopened in July 2005 and within a few working days it has become the coolest place to be (again) in downtown Fira. This is because people got tired of having to deal with the everynight low quality consumption of altered booze in big clubs and music standards that have remained back in the eighties (meaning mainstream-pop-greek mix, with the same song lists everynight). The place within 200 working days has redetermined the nightlife of Santorini and this can be seen from the list of DJ's and live happenings that took place within those two summer periods. Plays soul, house, jazz and beat tunes for easy listeners and soulful audiences and goes louder while the night progresses . Is a great cocktail place, with nice, neat working youths. Prices from 5 euros for beers to 8 euros for cocktails. Entrance fee in summer time at 10 euros (includes a drink). I have spotted the best dj of France playing there last year without anybody notifying about it (these people do it for their friends or something....) and Osunlade for few nights. Is almost like a private kind of bar, with most people knowing exactly why they are heading there. (Good booze, good music)
Dress Code: No dress code but some attention is needed
As night falls the children, women and grandparents gather at the main church plaza in Oia centre, Here the kids play and run and the oler ones talk. I assume the men are at the ouzo watering hole???
Very pleasant atmosphere, a beautiful church and a good place to sit town after a busy and hot sightseeing day.
Whats billed as a great nightspot that occasionally attracts celebrities and all the "in" crowd of Greece, turned out to be a normal tourist club. Sure there were locals there, but they were just Greek men trying their luck at the foriegners. Overall, the music was at least better than average, but the atmosphere sucked. I would give it a pass, unless you are with a group of friends that will distract you from the suckiness.
Dress Code: Normal, nothing dressy.
This place was nothing special, but I mention it, because I had a beer and some chips in it, and the fact that it is right in the middle of Fira. It is located only a few feet from the Fira Hostel (though I don't recommend you stay there, check my accomodation page). The beer was normal and decently priced and the bar staff spoke English (I think they were from OZ or Britain). Overall, stop in if you need a drink.
Dress Code: Come as you are...
The bright summer sun sets brilliantly in the horizon, seemingly melting into the sea.
The scene is such that it is easy to understand why Santorini is arguably the most beautiful of the breathtaking Greek Islands.
No need to go clubbing... romance and beauty is everywhere!
Dress Code: Be unforgettable.
