Athenians already know the Tango’s unique style and precious ambiance. Santorini’s Tango does not miss the rule and is definitely one of the hot spots of Island’s nightlife. Mainstream and Latin music with a focus on the 80ies will rhythm your nights around the renovated bar. An exceptional place where you will simply dance over the Caldera
Tropical Bar, a small but classy club, is located in Fira, offering a fabulous view of the caldera. There is a spacious bar counter which can double as a dance floor. The bar has a lively Southern Californian bartender, who whips up one of the best margaritas, a cocktail made with tequila, an orange liqueur, and lemon, and serves it in its original form by encrusting salt on the glass rim. The bar has created an entire menu of frozen drinks and cocktails, such as the fiery tutti frutty and many more. The ambience is totally relaxing and rock and reggae music are on top of the chart. The bar opens at noon and starts with coffee.
- CASABLANCA SOUL
The Casablanca Soul Bar is located on the rim of the volcanic caldera of Fira, the hot spot for nightlife in Santorini. An evening in Fira starts with dinner at one of the numerous restaurants of Fira or Oia, after which people head to discos, dancing clubs or bars like the Casablanca Soul to while away the nights. Exotic cocktails stirred up by talented bartenders on Santorini. The daquiries, Mojito passion, tropicana and champagne cocktails served at the Casablaca Soul are quite a hit with locals and new comers. George K Tony is the music guru at Casablanca. An in-house DJ (actually, the only resident DJ in Fira), George has been playing since 1986 and he is probably the only DJ who plays real funk. Popular live bands from around the world are invited to perform at the Casablanca. The bar opens at 10 pm and closes after the last guest has departed, early in the morning.
This club is what is called in Greece “ellinadiko” (playing Greek music), but also with lively mainstream music. A very researched, always renovated, decoration with glass, bright colors, palm trees and plants popping out that create a unique atmosphere.
Koo Club is located on the north end of cliffside walkway in Fira. The club has a large outdoor patio in a tropical setting with palm trees and an indoor dance floor that is in total contrast with its sultry ambience and high energy action which reaches a crescendo when the dance floor becomes packed with gyrating bodies who let them be carried away by the pulsating rhythms of the music. The indoor floor is pretty large and has a luxurious decoration, looking pretty much like the interiors of a Greek palace, with its large cave-like alcoves, subdued lighting, an impressive chandelier and plush sofas with comfy cushions. The spacious patio outside has three bars and can be used as a getaway to lounge between songs or to enjoy a drink under the stars.
