A bacchanal atmosphere rules the island, drawing a diverse crowd of Euro-trash, millionaires, celebrities, gays, backpackers, and fashionistas. The anything-goes, hedonistic-bash continues night and day.

Cavo Paradiso

Clinging to a rocky, seaside cliff, this dance club, with its pool and multiple bars, is famous for moonlight raves and sunrise parties—things heat up around 2am; the debauchery continues until close to 10am.

El Pecado

Snag a table outside to chill or a table inside to party to samba rhythms. At the far end of the old harbor overlooking Chora and the marina, this is one of the island’s premier after-dark asylums.

Paradise Club

Even before the sun sets, beachgoers start jamming to escalating tunes emanating from Paradise Club’s speakers. Dance the night (or day) away to the latest house music while downing fruity cocktails or Ouzo.

Practically an institution on Mykonos, this renowned gay bar is the place for dancing, drinking, and drag. Founded in 1974 (before Mykonos was the hot spot it is today) by Italian-American painter Pierro Aversa and Mykonian local Andreas Koutsoukos, Pierro's radiates flare. Artists, actors, models, and, of course, drag queens have been flocking to this DJ-driven bar where there's always a surplus of fashionable patrons and views of Mykonos bay.
