A night out in Kefalonia.
When you think of Kefalonia, there are three things that should come to mind: drink, dance and party. If that doesn't sound like a good time to you, then perhaps the Kefalonia nightlife will be a bit over your head.
However, if this sounds like it might lead to the best time of your life, then it would be a good idea to consider a . Let's take a look at the best bars, clubs and restaurants in Kefalonia.
We'll start with bars. Captain's Bar is one of the more popular establishments. This isn't an active or high-energy environment, but it is a great place to start out. It's a place that allows you to settle in and get a feel for the lay of the land.
Captain's Bar is located right on the Skala beachfront. Therefore, you're going to have great views and feel very at ease. The music is usually soothing and there are more than 40 different types of drinks available. If you want an actual beachfront bar, go to Stevento. They offer great service, drinks in iced glasses and the best sunsets in the Greek Islands. This is also a great place to go to meet locals.
For on-trend music, go to Zanza. They play a wide variety of tunes and often have experienced DJs spinning. It's also a café in the morning. For the most unique bar experience, go to Zebra. You can find live music upstairs and a crazy party with a dancing zebra downstairs. The zebra is someone in costume, of course.
As far as nightclubs go, there are a number of places where you can party the night away. Bass is the most popular club in Kefalonia — mainly because it's so close to Central Square. The party doesn't get going here until midnight so keep that in mind while on your Kefalonia holiday. Cinema is another popular option and is close to many shops on Lithostrob Street. This used to be an actual cinema and the antique projector and many seats remain. This makes for a historic environment, which makes Cinema unlike any other club in the islands. Cinema also opens earlier than most other nightclubs so it's a great place to start. Kastro has been around since 1995 and mixes an old mine with lush greenery. The pine trees and live bands make this a more laidback atmosphere.
As far as restaurants go, start with Ellis, which is on the Fiskardo seafront. They serve a range of different dishes, but seafood is their specialty. Regardless of what you order, you will be able to enjoy views of the Ionian Sea. Andromeda is a Greek restaurant that offers outdoor dining near Lourdas Bay. It's a beautiful atmosphere and everyone raves about the food. For peace and quiet, sea views, an extensive wine list and the best moussaka around, dine at .
With the information above, you should be able to enjoy the best Kefalonia nightlife on offer. Try to mix the bars, nightclubs and restaurants to get the full Kefalonia experience.
