A guide to nightlife in Samos

Samos isn’t known for being a party island, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find plenty of great bars to suit your needs for an evening. The relaxed, laid-back atmosphere that most restaurant turned bars have means they’re great for families, couples or groups. Unwind with a cocktail – or two – from a beach bar while admiring the view out to sea, or settle in to a local taverna with a glass of ouzo. Whatever you choose, you’ll find somewhere friendly and welcoming to spend the evening.

Cocktails to delight at Tempo Cafe Club, Pythagorion

Located in the centre of town, Tempo Cafe Club is an all-day venue, serving coffee in the morning before turning into a bar and nightclub in the evening. With DJs playing mainstream Greek and international music – and a full bar and cocktail menu – Tempo Cafe Club could be your perfect place for a fun night out.

With its cool vibe, its selection of music and it’s easy to find as its right on the harbour and next door to a pancake shop.

Always a great night at Escape Music club, Samos Town

Overlooking the sea, this popular club has been wowing the crowds for decades. It’s open from 10pm until 4am and popular for the quality of its cocktails and fantastic playlist. You can either party inside the club, or outside on its veranda.

Expect to hear a diverse range of music. Some nights you’ll be able to chill out to a funky 80s menu, on other nights expect to listen to the very best house and techno sounds on Samos. Every week there’s a different guest DJ at Escape Music club, so, variety’s the name of the game.

Cocktail delights at Cafe de la Mar, Kokkari

Located on Tsamadou Beach in Kokkari – one of Samos’ most beautiful stretches of coastline – Cafe de la Mar is a laid-back cocktail bar popular with locals and tourists alike. Whether you choose to chill out on the beach or take your drinks inside the club, you’ll have a wonderful evening here. Food is also on offer and the music is always excellent.

Simply sip your Mojito, take in the glorious views over the sea and take in the magic of Cafe de la Mar.

Sea views to impress at Corner Bar, Pythagorion

This is one of the oldest bars in Samos – it has a contemporary vibe, despite the fact that it has been running for over 70 years. With a sea view and vibrant atmosphere, Corner Bar is great for families in the daytime – it even serves breakfast, and colourful alcohol-free cocktails for kids. The cocktails for adults are pretty amazing too.

By night the tempo changes and this is the place for all ages to congregate for a post dinner drink. You’ll find a friendly crowd here enjoying the music and absorbing the beauty of Pythagorion as you look out to sea.

Plenty of choice at Flavour, Samos Town

This wooden bar is right on the beach, accessorised with trees, tropical-style umbrellas, and sunbeds for customers. Flavour is a family-friendly cafe-bar with a relaxed atmosphere and a chilled vibe. They often have DJs playing music in the evenings, and offer milkshakes and ice-creams as well as alcoholic drinks.

If you’re looking for something a little different, then Flavour Bar is for you.
