Rethymno Nightlife: 11 reviews and 17 photos


We used to have a drink here on the way out of a night and on the way back, as it is situated on the promenade, close to Macdonalds of all places.
If I remember, they have 'live' music in the form of a DJ but he only seemed to be playing CDs. Anyway the music was good. The bar seems to have been recently refurbished, as it was decked out to the nines. Its a popular place and was always busy. There is seating inside and outside under cover next to the promenade walkway. The place is like a tardis and the interior is very spacious, which you wouldn't think from the outside. There is a selection of cocktails available, of which I advise to try the White Russian.
I nice touch was that with every drink served, the waiter provided a tray of nuts with celery, carrots and an accompanying dip to nibble on. This is just the ticket when you get the munchies long into the night after your meal.
Soft, comfy seating makes this venue a really relaxing affair and I really enjoyed coming here, kicking back, enjoying the cocktails and listening to the music. The owner or manager looks really smooth in a crisp white linen suit and, along with the rest of the staff, give you a really warm welcome when you arrive.
Met an old drunk Norwegian guy in here but the waiters chucked him out for apparently harrassing guests. I thought he was well funny though.

Dress Code: None that I could see. Everyone seems to dress up a bit though so probably best not to saunter in in your flip flops & bum bag.

Address: On the promenade
Directions: With the Rock Cafe to your left facing the lighthouse, walk right, along the promenade for a few minutes last the restaurants and it is on your right.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
