When it comes to nightlife, Thassos holidays successfully retain a lively atmosphere with a laid-back feel. There are lots of great tavernas and restaurants across the island, many of which offer live music. Elsewhere, a cluster of lounge bars, pubs and cocktail places keep the tunes pumping and the alcohol flowing until 1am or 2am. With that in mind, read on for a suggestion of five different locales across the island, ranging from nightclubs to lounge bars to beach hang-outs. You're sure to find something that suits your tastes.
As the principal nightclub in Thassos Town, Just in Time receives most of the drinking traffic once all of the other bars and venues have closed. Patrons can expect a young crowd, scantily clad waitresses dancing on the bar and alcohol flowing freely until the sun comes up. At the weekend, there are regular DJ nights featuring both resident DJs and visiting guests from across Europe.
Ideally situated slap bang in the middle of town, Bar Brazil is the perfect place to stop off on your way home for one final cocktail and watch people go by. The ambient music and candlelit tables combine to produce an atmosphere that is welcoming and chilled out. What's more, the staff are a friendly bunch, always keen to help make your night as pleasant as possible.
Perched at the end of the harbour atop an elevated cliff face, Karnagio is an atmospheric place to visit both during the day and at night time. The sight of the sun slipping beneath the waves while you calmly sip on your mojito can hardly be bettered. The quality drinks and impeccable service are soundtracked by great music, ensuring your visit is one to remember.
Owned by an Australian-Greek couple, the Boomerang Bar has an extensive food menu, but the fun to be had once the sun goes down is its real selling point. The owner Abe is a characterful man who will welcome you on your entrance and quite possibly invite you to drink a shot with him. The multitude of large TV screens around the pub make it a great place to watch any live sporting events that your holiday to Thassos coincidences with, too.
Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the shoreline, Taverna Orizontes is tucked 10 kilometres inland at the village of Theologos. Its remote location means that the clientele is far less populated with tourists than at other places. The bar often hosts live music at the weekend, like traditional bouzouki guitar tunes and rembetika music – basically a Greek version of American blues. For a more authentically Greek night out, this little gem could interest the curious holidaymaker.
