Rhodes has a pretty happening nightlife during the touristy season. Rhodes is an especially popular location for traveling swedes, so you may see that theme popping up quite a bit. Overall the atmosphere is great and the scene quite fun.
From over, on the terrace of the restaurants in the old city, you can have a sublime spectacle, when you admire the sunset, over the roofs of the town.
This is a unique presentation of the nature and a wonderful image.
For those seeking a different excitement, there is a Casino in Rhodes Town.

Rhodes has about everything on offer to you, during your stay. From romantic evening strolls along the beach to evenings in one of the many party bars and clubs. When you are in Rhodes you'll probably get the impression the city never sleeps, for when sunset gives way to evening, you'll discover that Rhodes begins to live by night. To a great extent this is true, as no other island nearby offers so many alternatives. Rhodes nightlife has a lot of excitement to offer and you'll soon notice that it's not only varied, but reasonable priced as well. Visitors of nearly every nationality, age and character dance their nights away, or enjoy refreshing drinks in one of the numerous bars (especially in Rhodes Town, Trianta and Faliraki). These bars and clubs play all kinds of music from "live" rock'n roll disco, to Greek and international pop. And don't worry about arriving too late, because these places don't get jumping until late at night. These and many more entertainment experiences should ensure that you'll enjoy the nights during your vacations.
We found this place by chance - we literally stumbled across it whilst lost in the backstreets of the old town (I'd recommend getting lost, by the way).
We stepped through a "hole in the wall" and found ourselves in this square - Dorieos Square - a place where the pace of life seems to be almost at a standstill.
Dogs and cats sleep in the square, people sit and sip drinks and read books, tourists hardly pass through - except those on a guided tour, maybe...
We came back often, to drink a bottle of Retsina (the cheapest place we found it, at 3.5 euro per bottle) or a beer, or to have a light lunch. We'd sit beneath a shady tree, read our guide books or write a postcard or two, or be entertained at times by the cats and dogs, if they woke up... It was heaven.

Sofokleous is a street in the old town. It's off the square called Platonos, where you'll find the Mosque Of Ibraim. This mosque has a very modern looking minarette, resembling a white space rocket!
Anyway, Sofokleous and the other streets in this area contain some VERY atmospheric bars and tavernas, many with beautiful bare stone interiors, or even mosaics. Their tables spill out onto the street, and some on Platonos Sq. have cushions thrown onto benches all around the square. Lovely. The street is also covered by a canopy of leaves, which is quite typical of this area.
It's a bit "off the beaten path" too - barely a minutes walk from Hippocrates Sq., the centre of the old town, but like a whole world away in terms of atmosphere.
Dress Code: Anything.
Set in a garden, through an archway off Socratous in the old town. Socratous is one of the old town's busiest streets, and the garden is like a haven, an oasis if you like, away from the hustle and bustle outside.
It's set in a courtyard and has fountains and waterfalls playing through the shrubs and flowers in the garden. We took a table beneath a tree, by a fountain, and enjoyed a lovely Bailey's Coffee.

We passed this place a few times on our walks into and back from the Old Town. It's near the corner of Alex Diakou and Sof Venizelou, that I already described in the restaurants section as being a busy part of town.
This "bar" was always jumping - packed to the rafters (and outside too) with young, stylish people, obviously having a good time. So we decided to drop in one night, and were quite surprised to find that it's a coffee bar, rather than your "normal" type of bar.
The frappes that we had here were outstanding, with a thick foam that had to be eaten with a spoon! Delicious.
