  • 1. The Pirate Bar


    Ahoy mateys! Café-bar Pirate has been a fixture of the island's nightlife since the mid-1970s. Over the years, it's gotten face-lifts, added some mainstream dance hits to its onetime rock music–only playlist, and remains popular and raucous. The spot is actually open all day with delicious home-cooked dishes (burgers, salads, and lemon pies) but it is at night that the fun really takes off, often with the help of one of the popular rum-based house drinks, such as the fruity Tropical Sun.

    Hydra Town, Hydra, 18040, Greece
  • 2. Votsalo


    Tiny, cozy, and cute, Votsalo is a great meeting point for breakfast (it serves excellent espresso), but is equally popular after sunset, when you can order dreamy cocktails and listen to cool acid jazz tunes.

    Stavrou Niarchou 79, Spetses Town, Spetses, 18050, Greece
  • 3. Amalour


    On the ground floor of an early 19th-century whitewashed mansion and spilling out onto the cobble Tombazi street, Amalour attracts youthful crowds who sip expertly made and reasonably priced cocktails (especially the exquisite daiquiris), socializing and dancing to ethnic, jazz, soul, and funk music.

    Tombazi, Hydra Town, Hydra, 18040, Greece
  • 4. Avli


    The ever-popular Avli, which goes from café-bistro by day to bar (playing Latin rhythms) by night, serves delicious appetizers in a small courtyard, crowned by an impressively tall palm tree. Free Wi-Fi is available.

    Panayi Irioti 17, Aegina Town, Aegina, 18010, Greece
  • 5. Beach Club Spilia

    Tucked into the coastal rocks just below the Hydroneta bar, Spilia provides a nice escape from the midday sun and is a popular nocturnal haunt, too. The view toward the port is impressive and the deck chairs are comfortable. The steps down to the refreshing sea are especially inviting on hot summer days, which means you can end up spending a whole day here without realizing it, enjoying coffee, nibbles, and then drinks.

  • 6. Bikini Cocktails & Snacks

    This bar in a redesigned neoclassical building stands out for its romantic surroundings. Sip one of the imaginative cocktails, with names like Oki Monkey and Inferno, while sitting at a candlelit table right by the water. Things get more lively later in the evening, as this is one of the happening places on the island.

  • 7. Caps Love


    This is probably the coolest bar on Aegina, on the southern edge of the main town. Enjoy the lounge vibe with a gourmet pizza or burger downstairs in this creatively restored old town house with exposed stonework, and then head upstairs where most of the action is after dark.

    Achilleas 4, Aegina Town, Aegina, Greece
  • 8. Hydronetta

    The minuscule Hydroneta bar-restaurant has an enchanting view from its perch above the harbor. Embraced by rocks and surrounded by water, it is jam-packed during the day, and it is the place to enjoy a glass of chilled beer or fruity long drink at sunset. Hydroneta's trademark events are its "Full Moon" parties, fun-filled affairs under Hydra's starlit skies.

  • 9. Inn on the Beach

    On the outskirts of Aegina Town, this multilevel venue draws an early crowd with its sunset seafront cocktails and chill-out music, before notching up the music to a beach-party tempo.

    Aegina Town, Aegina, 18010, Greece
  • 10. Mosquito Bar

    Spetses's take on the gastro pub serves tasty grub that can be washed down by one (or more) of the many cool craft beers sourced from microbreweries throughout Greece. The sunset views from the roof garden, overlooking the sea, are magical.

    Anargirou, Spetses Town, Spetses, Greece
  • 11. Muzik Café Bar

    In Perdika, Muzik Café Bar is popular with the yachting crowd, who appreciate the food and relaxed atmosphere, as well as the great music and cocktails (try the lemon mojito) served until late at night.

    Perdika, Attica, 18010, Greece
  • 12. Papagalos

    On the western tip of the harbor toward Mandraki, where the first disco club of the island used to be, Papagalos is a cocktail and tapas bar doubling up as a daytime port-side coffee spot, with a panoramic view of the harbor action. Rock and ethnic music are the staples on the decks, while live events are held here on a regular basis. Free Wi-Fi is available.

    Hydra Town, Hydra, 18040, Greece
  • 13. Spetsa Bar

    The island's all-time-classic hangout, where Kostas likes to play music from the 1960s and '70s. It's a perfect choice for a pre-dinner drink (bar opens at 8 pm).

    Platia Ag. Mamas, Spetses Town, Spetses, 18050, Greece

  • 14. Stavento Club

    Dance Club

    This club is a latey (opens 11 pm), where you can savor a cool cocktail on the breezey veranda overlooking the old harbor, which many patrons take advantage of to take a break from the steamy dance floor indoors.

  • 15. Throubi

    Nightlife Overview

    DJ sets from little-known, creative young Athenian talent set this little bar on the seafront promenade abuzz. The down-to-earth prices attract a less flashy crowd of nighttime fun seekers.
