ios, greece | the night life

Yes, we all love soaking up the sun and splashing around in the water but there is something special about going out at night in Ios, Greece. The bars and clubs begin to get busy after midnight and make sure you pace yourself because locals and tourists will be out until after 4am. We wanted to get a good taste of the night life here so we would have one night out and one night with a late dinner and go to bed at a decent time.

We would begin our night at Blue Note which is in the upper main sqaure of the Chora. They have a special of 2 drinks for 5 euros (doesn't get much better than that!). This place is small and has a variety of top 40 mixed with party music. 

After a round or two at Blue Note, we would head to Slammer Bar. This place is a must! They have a drink called The Slammer where they put a helmet on your head, give you a tall concoction of tequila and some other mixes, then hit you over the head with a hammer. It sounds painful but dont worry it's not. Just remember, it's all about the experience! They have a great deal - for 21 euros you get 7 shots and a free Slammer Bar tank top. Great idea to share these drinks with your friends!

We all would end up at flames at the end of the night. This small bar was always packed with lots of dancing and great feel-good music which you would know every word to.

There are many late night places to snack after the bar. We found the Porky's was delicious and popular but right across the street was a to-die-for crepe place called Club Sandwich. We found that these places where the closest to the bars, cheapest and quickest to prepare.

If you have been to Ios, where was your favourite place to party at night?

  1. Mine was to lounge on the warm stone on the West side of the island equipped with my Pentax K100 and watching the sunset. Then it was off to a taverna for the fresh catch of the day and some retsina.


Thanks for stopping by + taking the time to comment!
