Experience the buzzing atmosphere of a night out in Mykonos.
When the sun sets in Mykonos, the island transforms into a lively scene of music, dancing, and revelry that has made its nightlife famous across Europe and beyond. After lazy days spent beach-going and sightseeing, locals and visitors alike emerge to enjoy the energy and entertainment Mykonos offers after-dark.
Where do I go for a night out in Mykonos?
In the main town, wander the pretty whitewashed lanes now illuminated in a warm glow as music spills out of bars, tavernas, and cafes. Choose from cozy cocktail lounges, wine bars with extensive Greek vintages, and verandas perfect for a pre-party drink. As the night progresses, join in the pulsing rhythm at one of the town’s renowned LGBTQ-friendly clubs like Jackie O’ or Babylon, where flashing lights and thumping electronic beats will have you dancing all night.
For an elevated nightlife experience, head to the island’s luxurious beach clubs. Make a glittering entrance at Nammos famed for Champagne spray parties and celebrity sightings. Soak up the electric atmosphere at Cavo Paradiso, dramatically perched atop a cliff with panoramic sea views. World-class DJs fly in to spin as partygoers dance barefoot on the sand until sunrise. Or escape to the exotic Scorpos Beach Club, where fire dancers perform each evening.
Beyond the main town, discover Mykonos’ charming hidden tavernas. Share laughter and stories over ouzo and authentic Greek mezedes at Kiki’s set on the water’s edge. Toast to new friendships at galleries transformed into vibrant music venues after dark. Or dine under the stars at Fokos Tavern – only accessible by boat – for a taste of Greece’s classic island life.
What are the best LGBTQ+ friendly clubs in Mykonos?
JackieO’ Town Bar is located at the Paraportiani waterfront, and is a staple of Mykonos’ gay nightlife scene. JackieO’ Town Bar provides an intimate yet lively atmosphere for LGBTQ+ patrons. Tucked away on a lively street in Mykonos Town, its sleek interior with vivid blue lighting creates a distinctive vibe perfect for mingling and dancing. Friendly bartenders whip up creative cocktails while pop and dance remixes play into the night. For over 30 years, JackieO’ has been a welcoming LGBTQ+ institution in Mykonos, even hosting same-sex weddings. With its casual-chic energy and sense of community, it’s no wonder JackieO’ remains a beloved gay hotspot day and night.
Known as Mykonos’ premier gay dance club, Babylon draws lively crowds each night with its neon-lit atmosphere and thumping dance music. Tucked away in the center of Mykonos Town, the vibrant two-story venue features a bar downstairs and spacious dance floor upstairs where world-class DJs and dancers energise patrons into the early morning hours. Drawing an eclectic mix of visitors and locals, Babylon’s vibrant energy celebrates Mykonos’ welcoming spirit. For those seeking the ultimate gay-friendly Mykonos night out, Babylon offers an electric experience under the glow of its neon rainbow lighting.
Overlooking the tranquil harbour of Little Venice, Montparnasse café-bar is one of the oldest LGBTQ+ venues on the island and charms visitors with its seaside setting and relaxed ambience. Its outdoor patio offers prime sunset views as well as an ideal vantage point for people watching. This spot is a quaint cafe and restaurant during the day, but at night, the space transitions into a laid-back lounge with occasional live music and DJs overlooking the waterfront. With its prime location and effortless style, Montparnasse captures the essence of Mykonos’ understated elegance and beauty. It’s a perennial favorite spot to while away the hours in Little Venice’s vibrant culture by the sea.
Can I have a luxury night out in Mykonos?
Mykonos is known as one of the most glamorous destinations in the world, so it is the ideal spot for a luxurious night out. For a truly exclusive night out, charter a private yacht. Sip champagne alongside models and tycoons as you sail between mega-yachts under the moonlight. Dock at secluded coves inaccessible to most to keep the party going into the early morning hours. With your own DJ and bartender aboard, customize your VIP island celebration with the glittering Aegean as your backdrop.
What do you wear to a nightclub in Mykonos?
Mykonos nights call for flashy, fashionable outfits that sparkle as much as the island after dark. Pack shimmery fabrics, bold prints, and daring cuts – miniskirts, crop tops, and daring dresses are commonplace here. Metallic and all white looks add a chic Greek flair. Bring your most glamorous accessories to dress to impress at clubs, bars, beaches, and yacht parties where anything goes on this stylish island.
Do remember that the island is a maze of cobblestone streets, so we’d recommend flat shoes or stable platforms if you’re not well-versed in walking in heels on rough ground.
