Kavos enjoys an infamous reputation as one of the liveliest party meccas in all of the Greek islands. The majority of the action is located along the town's main strip, making it easier than ever to crawl from one pub to the next. The tunes will begin blasting in the late afternoon to early evening, but things don't really hot up until after the clock has struck one. Clubs are open until the sun comes up, at which point many people simply spill onto the beach to continue the night's revelry and fight the onset of the inevitable hangover.
One of the major club venues in town, Future Club regularly hosts massive nights with world-famous DJs in attendance. Legends of the dance scene from Cream and The Ministry of Sound have commandeered the decks to put on epic shows that last well into the night. If you like your music loud and fast, this is the place to go on holidays to Kavos.
Playing a heady mix of R'n'B, dance and hip-hop, Snobs Bar is packed to the rafters pretty much every night of the week. If it's too busy for you inside, the infectiously upbeat atmosphere carries on outdoors to make for an epic street party.
A place which can't quite decide whether it's a bar or a club, Beetle Bar has cheap fishbowl cocktails designed to help you get the night off to a good start. The DJ is open to requests and the staff are super friendly, making it a good place to get into your stride.
JC's claim to fame is the notorious Haribo Headf!cker concoction that began life here. The clue is in the title with this one – needless to say, you'll only need a couple to really get in your groove. Indie tunes are the order of the day at this bar without pretensions at the start of the strip.
Owner Maria is a larger-than-life character who is certain to liven up your evening with a deliciously potent cocktail, or four, and a spot of karaoke singing. All ages and tastes are welcome and there's no pressure to croon if you don't want to – having fun is mandatory though.
With screens literally all over the pub – nearing 20 in total – you can be guaranteed to watch the match you want. Rugby, football, golf, cricket, tennis… even tiddlywinks! If it's on TV, you'll see it at the Wembley Bar.
Another sports bar on the strip, Scorer's prides itself on good pub grub, great music, sport on large screen TVs and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. They also have a resident DJ for when the game's over but the night has just begun. It's no-nonsense fun at a good price perfect for those on cheap Kavos holidays.
