A guide to nightlife in Argostoli
Argostoli is the hub of nightlife on holidays to Kefalonia, so there’s plenty of choice to keep you busy and having lots of fun on your nights out. Take a look below as some of the best venues in town, many of which are located around the lively Plateia Valianou square. On a Greek island holiday in Argostoli, you can have quiet drinks or enjoy live music at a bar, then move on to DJs and dancing at one of its busy clubs.
All night dancing at Bass Club
This is a big, cool venue near the town centre. Bass Club is a luxurious club dedicated to dance music and making sure you have all-night party fun. It features a mix of Greek and international tunes, with special guests, DJs and live music.
Pre-party drinks at Bass Cafe
The Bass Cafe is a separate venue from the Bass Club, but carries on the cool vibe. Its a warm-up venue to the clubs where you can enjoy a few early drinks and maybe a snack, or meet your mates before your big night out.
Movies and music at Cinema Music Club
This is a funky renovated old cinema where they’ve kept the seats and the antique film projector, creating an interesting and unusual space. Its large dancefloor has tiers so you can watch the action and the long bar even has palm trees on it. They play club and chart music and videos with a dramatic light show backdrop.
Daytime lounging and night-time partying at Stavento Club
This is the place to go for wild, loud fun and crazy party all-nighters. Located right on the beachfront, Stavento is a great place to relax during the day and turns into one of the hottest venues in the area for a great night out. Special events add to the fun and dancing all night.
