Heraklion Bars

Heraklion bars

Heraklion, the capital of Crete, offers an active and amazing nightlife all year round, even in winter. In the historical centre of Heraklion, at the narrow alleys and the lovely squares, many bars are gathered and feature a wide variety of musical styles, from popular contemporary Greek and foreign music to Oriental styles and older songs. Along Korai and Milatou Street, you will find modern Heraklion bars with popular music and tasty cocktails, which attract mostly young people, while at the old harbour there are more alternative, historical bars.

Lovely bars, either lounge or active, can also be found in coastal areas around town. In these tourist areas, you can enjoy a charming evening by the seaside with incredible sunset views and lower prices than the bars in Heraklion town centre. Some of the most popular Heraklion bars are 50-50, 258 lounge bar and friends, Tita Mpriki Bar, Dolphin Beach Bar, Ittar jazz bar and the swanky Veneto.

Here are some lovely bars in Heraklion. Each bar is presented with detailed text, photos and point on Google map. If you have visited any of these bars, feel free to write your review. All request forms go directly to the bar manager so that you can make a reservation in person or ask them any question.

Leaving Lentas, a tiny roadside chapel's white stucco facade and warm terracotta roof is a striking contrast to the monstrous, stony mountain behind it. The blue fluidity of the sea softens the rough and rocky landscape.
Under the canopy of a palm tree, creamy white umbrellas and sun beds are perched seaside, making these front row seats to the sea, undeniably dreamy.
Umbrellas in hues of azure blue and tangerine tones dot the sandy shores of Hersonnisos, Crete. The stone wall perfectly complements both the pretty parasols and the grainy earth.
While visiting the village of Fodele,( El Greco's birthplace), this striking contrast of colours caught my eye. So magically Mediterranean!
This 'window box' of gnarly, pink geraniums caught my eye while exploring the old houses built on a hill in the village of Fodele.
