A clubber's guide to the Zante strip

The small island of Zante has a big reputation for clubbing in places like the Zante strip in the eastern resort of Laganas. With over 40 bars and clubs lining the strip there are places to go for all kinds of music, from dance to pop, hip-hop to indie and tunes from the decades.

Things generally get going around 10pm and don’t wind down until 6am, so make sure you’re in for the long haul. You won’t have to pay an entry fee unless you want to go to one of the big organised nights listed below, or unless there are special guest DJs on. Otherwise, you’re free to walk along the strip and see what takes your fancy.

Take a look at our guide to Zante Strip, also known as Dimokratias St or just Beach Road, to find out where to go and when.

Smaller venues and bars

To warm up for your big Zante night out, start out at one of these fun bars and smaller clubs.

Cocktail bars

Head upstairs to Cocktails and Dreams, which is styled after the Tom Cruise film Cocktail, to have your pick of over 40 cocktails. Or you could try British-owned Hawaiian themed cocktail bar Cheeky Tikis, which serves its drinks in anything from fireman’s hats to watering cans and holds karaoke out the back.

Small but interesting clubs

With an open-air bar at the front and a club pulling in big names at the back, Plus Club is a real head-turner. DJs that’ve played here have included Tim Westwood and Hed Kandi DJs, plus they hold regular UV paint parties.

Big party nights

Events organisers lay-on wild, themed party nights on the weekends at some of The Strip’s biggest and boldest clubs. So if you want paint, foam and fire breathers along with your dancing and drinking, check out these ticketed options.

Zeros

This huge club’s big night is The Ball, held every Saturday from June to mid-August, midnight to 5am. It’s a Carnival inspired night of circus acts, Live Rio performers and dancers with a resident DJ and MC in the main arena, plus a quieter terrace with fire breathers.

Costing £30 to get in, you get a free Rio Carnival bucket for a drink.

Sizzle

The world’s biggest colour party, Dancing in Colours, comes to 1000-capacity Sizzle every Saturday through summer. Party-goers dance to EDM while launching powder paints into the air.

Included in the £20 entrance fee is a free T Shirt – ready to get colourful – and face painting, three bags of colour powder and the opportunity to dance to guest DJs like Mark Knight and N-Trance. Or ‘The Ultimate Party’ is every Thursday from 1st May at Sizzle, with party games and fun from resident DJ Smokey and MC Jamie

Total Karnage

For a whirlwind tour of all the bars on the strip Total Karnage is Europe’s biggest bar crawl race on every Sunday evening from June to mid-September. Starting at Zeros Club, everyone sets out in their free orange T-shirts to race for the top 50 spots for the chance of winning a discounted bar for two hours. Free club entry and an after party are included in the £20 fee.
