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.

Pretty blossoms, presented to us this spring by our sole plum tree, are captured against a cloudy, Cretan sky, while, close by, the little chapel of St. Irene, remains a permanent, picturesque presence.
Freesia, my fabulous zygomorphic beauty, a single stem of your mini suns lights up the entire Cretan sky! Your sweet, citrus-y scent freshens the air, throughout the hilly countryside, making it a perfumed paradise!

I pass this vineyard every day, in the autumn, sometimes on a leisurely stroll, other times on a brisk walk. Regardless, its morphing colours and changing textures always make me pause, for grape leaves are to Crete, what maple leaves are to Canada, in the fall.
On a mid morning walk, powdery pink petals of the young almond tree in the foreground, lured us towards an unknown path.
