Casino Rodos: Good luck!
This seems to be the only casino in the whole island - but I might be wrong. Anyway, the building is large and surrounded with a very nice garden, full of tempting green shade on sunny days.
I'm not really into gambling, although I can understand those who like that sort of entertainment.
The casino contains a hotel and at least two elegant restaurants. Seems like a good money- and time-spender.
Dress Code: Casual casino stuff: I'm sure that you wouldn't feel good without a tie and jacket in a casino, would you.

The Neon Bar: The best bar in Afandou!
The Neon Bar is possibly the best bar/cafe in Afandou. Now situated just off the main square, having moved about 70 feet within the last 12 months from the square itself, the service here from the staff is fantastic, you really will not find a more friendly place in Afandou.
This bar has been a favourite of my family since they first visited rhodes in 1983. Its recent move is largely due to the unscrupulous characters running the bar next door, who got very jealous of the amount of business the Neon bar was getting and began to make life very difficult for them.
I have eaten here a couple of times and can tell you that the food is of a very high standard. If we do go out into the village and do not eat here, you can't beat calling in after for post-dinner drinks and one of their amazing crepe suzzettes!
This bar is definately worth a visit if you pass through Afandou, you will not regret it!
Note: The picture is of the Neon bar at its former location, the current bar is located 70 yards to the left

various: Nightlife in Lindos
Its been a while since my holiday to Lindos but I thought I would write one tip about 3 nightlife spots I remember.
Manoli's - they will get you dancing on the bar here! Fairly small but very friendly bar.
Lindos by night - cocktails! They gave us what looked like matchbooks with their logo on which actually turned out to be condoms! Random!
Medusa - a nightclub with sand on the floor. Fairly small but some good RnB tunes.
All in all the nightlife in Lindos is alot classier than the nightlife in Faliraki.
"CENTRAL" LAUNDRY-LAUNDROMAT, RHODES-GREECE: Have to do your LAUNDRY too!
"CENTRAL"LAUNDRY-LAUNDROMAT, RHODES GREECE,
I loved the excellent super fast (my laundry ready in 2 hours) service, good prices, and friendly staff there. Convenient location in the heart of town next to the beach and bar street.

Karma Reggae Bar: No Ordinary Bar!
What a blessing that we would happen upon this haven amid the hussle and bussle that the little maze that is Lindos can be! Karma Bar is more than just a “bar”, its is an experience not to be missed. I would urge every free thinking peaceful minded person, whether you like reggae or not, to immerse themselves in the great atmosphere that David and Nicky have created. This is a place for great music, even better conversation and well selected high quality drinks (no rubbish imitations that will leave you not only with a bad taste in your mouth, but an awful hangover). David’s dazzling personality and welcoming vibe is just so infectious and Nicky’s thoughtfulness is a delightfully refreshing change to the conveyer belt style hospitality to may experience in some other places in Lindos.
What really took my breath away is the way that in the Karma Reggae Bar you are treated as a friend and not just another customer…… I think every city that the sun graces needs a Karma Bar!
Dress Code: Anything you fancy.......laid back!
Municipal Park: Light & Sound Show
In holiday season tourists are attracted by a 'Light & Sound' Show featured in the Municipal Park. I wasn't lucky enough to be able to see it but from what I heard from people who enojyed the show it seems to be a real attraction both for adults and for children.
Well, as I said above, I never experienced the show myself so the only pics I can share are those of the Municipal Park in daylight.

Rock Box used to be one my favorite rock clubs in Rodos. It doesn't exist anymore.There was a band from Sweden playing every night.
The time was divided in two parts.
Music by the band and music by the dj.

Dress Code: Everybody welcome!!

the places to visit at night (r'n'r 4eva): Night life - live music, crazy fun
The night life on the whole Aegean Sea shore (I belive on the whole island) is alike. Its activity depends on the size of the place you are stying at and the place's infrastructure of course. These are just bars and pubs which are alike all over the island, at any place you can find some live music bars as well as karaoke and stuff like that. The only thing that changes from one place to the other is the number of bars and people in the street. No point to discuss.
If you are young and wild :) I'd recommend you Faliraki place. The great idea for students and youths to have some totally crazy fun, get drunk, have fight and whatever you like :) Riding through Faliraki drivers usually slow down - the reason is pretty drunk english lads and lasses crossing the highway wherever they feel like and beaten glass (probably ex-beer bottles) on the road. Locals are kinda afraid of the place and call it "Brittish colony" as mostly brittish youths come there to feel "freedom" (c) Sounds scarry? :) In fact it's not. Just a place with lots of youths having fun, lots of bars and pubs, dancing places...and yeah..a little bit in english manner :)
If you are up to having more cultural fun at night I'd recommend Rhodes city. The city itself is worth to start a new topic as it's a pretty huge and interesting place with lots of things to explore. You can find lots of different bars inside the Old Town Walls as well as outside. The Old Town is actually a quiet place, which looks especially cozy at night. There're mostly pretty expensive restaurants there and "calm" bars sometimes with live acoustic music.
There's one good club with live music I was brought to by locals in Rhodes. But unfortunately I forgot its name and address. I bet it was something about "Eggs"....seems to be "Mechanical eggs" or something like that. It's the only true rock'n'roll place in whole Rhodes as I was told. They play songs of "Red Hot Chilli Peppers" there and stuff like that. Do recommend! :)
I hope the info will be usefull! Have a good time!

Elamesa - Pefkos: Carlos
This is Carl doing his Freddie Mercury impression.
If you every meet Carl he likes the girls and has his own collection of knickers hanging from his appartment. But hes a great guy, he made us smile.
Elamesa - Pefkos: The Fish Bowl
This is the fish bowl, we drank this on our last night ill never know why we waited till the last night, with everything else we drank including gorilla snot (this was awfull, a mixture of green liquire and something like baileys which curdles) i had the worst hangover the next day, the day we had to fly home.
Ill never drink that much on my last night again, although we had a excellent night.
Dress Code: Anything goes,
Elamesa - Pefkos: A Great Place
We spent most evenings here, Mike who owns the bar is from Skipton, North Yorkshire not so far away from where we live and all the other staff where great all up for a good laugh.
This picture was taken on our last night at about 3am i dont even remember this being taken. They have a dressing up box behind the bar which they alowed us all to use.
The true is that Rhodes is very touristic.So, there are many pubs and clubs for foreigners,like at Orfanidou street and Faliraki.To tell you the truth:Don't go at these places if you want to see Greece.Don't go to Faliraki if you don't want to see drunk English and German people out of any control.At Orfanidou only Boulevard is a cool place and Colorado has live rock, which is nice, but it is far better at winter.Old town is very crowded at nights, but it deserve to find traditional places with greek music.Ask for taverns,tsipouradika and mezedopoleia.Go at Koukos to try retsina, go at old city but not at the known little street were you can't breeth.Ask for rogmi tou xronou for relaxing drinks...And of course no karaoke and greek nights of hotels...We see these things and we laugh!!Ask greek people where they go,no touristic spots.You will like the real face of Greek nightlife,not the bad imitations of Western Europe.
Depends on your hotel ;-): Hotel Balcony
Having Rhodes bars as an option, we figured out we would come better off having our own party on the hotel balcony.
So, the option was walking down the bar street (in Rhodes City or Faliraki), being bugged by teenagers trying to make us enter one of the bars, in the worst case - entering one, drinking beer or some cocktail - 5 Eur each and watching the teenagers getting dead drunk. Plus, I had the worst Strawberry Margharita in my life in Rhodes City.
If you decide to stay in your hotel balcony, you can make your own cocktails, play stupid games, dance, put your feet on the table and just enjoy the relaxed party.
Dress Code: No dress code but mosquito repellent might be usefull!
Greek Night: Greek Night
Most tour operators will offer you an excursion called "Greek Night", you will be transported from your resort by coach, and taken to a village in the mountains.
At ours we enjoyed various courses of Greek food, dancers in traditional dress, free flowing very strong wine and ouzo!
If you have not been on a Greek Night before I would certainly recommend it!
