Crete has the most lively nightlife of all the Greek islands. There is a wide variety of entertainment choices, for all tastes and all ages, from wild foam parties to traditional evenings with Cretan music and dances.
Summer in Crete and in Greece means “tables outside”: The guests meet the local people and everyone joins the party.
After the sunset, people start gathering in “ouzo shops” and “taverns” (which are usually next to the sea or have a view to the sea) to enjoy “tsikoudia” (traditional local drink) or ouzo and special snacks.
Whether you like atmospheric jazz bars, outdoor music lounges or dance clubs, Chania’s exciting nightlife always has something in store for you!
During weekends or before public holidays, and also on the days running up to Christmas, it is not unusual to see more people out and about at 5, 6 or 7am in the morning than in many other cities during the day!
Follow your insticts to help you get the party started!
