Nightlife in Ios: Discover where to go out for a drink, partying, or a tasty dinner!
Like Mykonos and Paros, Ios is an island revered for its entertainment scene. It has been famous for its wild and crazy nightlife since the 1980s when hippies from Crete first headed to the pristine beaches of Ios. Nowadays, visitors from all over the world head to Ios to have the fun of a lifetime.
A thing that witnesses the island's lively vibe is the fact that beach parties start early. Mylopotas, the busiest seaside tourist resort on the island, is home to some of the wildest party events in the Cyclades. There, music is on since the morning hours, accompanying those who want to dip in the sea or just enjoy a cocktail. Beach bars are crowded with party animals, most of which are young people who arrive around midday and leave late at night. Establishments like FarOut host world-renowned DJs, with huge names like Vini Vici, Acraze and Peggy Gou having entertained the crowd in the past.
When partygoers leave the beach bars, most have the island's nightclubs as their next destination. Those are located around the square and in the winding alleys of Chora. Apart from nightclubs, guests will find all kinds of bars in Chora (cocktail bars, all-day bars, social bars, etc.).
Regarding eating, Chora, Mylopotas and Koumbara have the most restaurants, mainly serving Greek cuisine; yet, some international dishes are available thanks to the thousands of tourists from abroad.
To sum up, Ios is always ready to welcome travelers who feel like living the utter entertainment experience in Greece!
