Entertainment & Nightlife
Chios is a destination that will satisfy all tastes, when it comes to entertainment choices. Cafes, small taverns, restaurants and bars offer a great range of entertainment, either for those seeking to relax or those who are determined to party.
Other nightlife hot spots are Karfas, Komi, Agia Fotia, Pyrgi, Volissos, Lagada, and Kardamyla, where you can enjoy the perfect combination of fun in a lovely environment.
For food lovers and especially those who would like to discover local cuisine, fish taverns offering high quality dishes are to be found all over Chios. At Lagada, Katarraktis, Lithia and Volissos, the visitor will literally taste the sea in the dishes.
For the all nighters, the town is recommended. There are bars at the port and in the narrow streets around Aplotaria street in Chios town. Djs, original cocktails and events add colour and vibes in Chios summer nights.
An important element of Chios nightlife, especially in the summer is the traditional panigiri, en event with traditional music and dancing that takes place in every village, usually on the day of its patron saint’s celebration. The panigiri is usually organised by the local cultural associacion, in an attempt to preserve the traditional customs of the island. These events are a meeting point of locals, Chios of the diaspora and visitors, who will have an amazing experience. Traditional music, local ouzo and souma and dancing until sunrise at medieval village squares, like Pyrgi or Volissos or at small ports by the sea, lika Agia Ermioni or Lagada, is a Chios experience not to be missed!
