Skiathos town has a lively nightlife scene, more concentrated on each end of the port, but many prefer to pass the evening with a walk along the harbor or around and above the Plateia Trion Ierarchon.
The main concentration of nightclubs is in the warren of streets west of Papadiamandis. On the street opposite the post office is the Blue Chips Club. Farther along Papadiamandis, another turn to the left leads to Borzoi, which you may want to check out several times during the evening, as it generally gets livelier toward midnight. Continue past it to find the Admiral Benbow Club, which offers something a bit quieter. Across from Admiral Benbow Club is flashy Spartacus. At the next intersection south you'll find Kirki.
Wander back down the main street to find Kentavros Bar, on the left beyond the Papadiamandis House, which plays classic rock and jazz.
On the far west end of the harbor, if you want sports with your drinks, try Oasis Cafe; if there's a game of any sort going on, it'll be on the tube. Meanwhile, at the far eastern end of the harbor are a few clubs popular with the younger set -- among them, Remezzo and Rock 'n' Roll Bar.
Club Strip along the harbour: Up until early in the morning in Skiathos Town
A bit hard to find, but look out for the club strip close to Skiathos town bus station by the harbour. There you can find one club after the other with lots of different music.
Sit outside on comfortable seats, have a drink and enjoy until early in the morning.
If loud music is not for you, there are a lot of bars at the harbour (close to where the ferrys leave) where you can sit outside.
They also have music, but not quite as loud.
Skiathos Town will keep old and young people happy!
Dress Code: Wear what you like, what you would wear to your Club at home.

Alcoholic Beverages - Greek Recommendations
Beer - There's plenty of British men in Skiathos, so demand for beer is high. No pints here though - all beer comes in 500ml glasses as standard, or 250ml on request. 500ml is larger than a pint, and at 3.50 Euros, it's cheaper (about £2.15). Try the local stuff, Mythos, or opt for Amstel - gorgeous.
Ouzo - the rather herbal traditional Greek alcoholic drink, it's a bit of an acquired taste. If you're lucky, you'll get some free after your meal in the more traditional Greek tavernas.
Other spirits - expensive. Not sure why. About 5.50 Euros for rum and coke, ouch.
Wine - very cheap and very nice. Can usually get a small glass for 1.60 Euros.

Skiathos town has a couple of clubs, but we couldn't find them. To be honest, I haven't heard great reviews, and most people prefer to be outside.
My tip - if you're in Skiathos town, find a taverna of restaurant, have a nice meal, a few drinks... then head to the pool-side bar where you're staying for an ouzo nightcap. Bars outside the town tend to be fairly relaxed about when they stop serving drinks.
Surely it's nicer being outside listening to Bob Marley, sipping ouzo, than being cooped up in a sweaty club with overweight middle-aged tourists, listening to Usher?
Pool table = added bonus!
Dress Code: Very casual everywhere. A couple of Daffyd (only gay in the village) type dressers heading to the clubs in Skiathos town... crikey.
