Nightlife in Corfu - Salco Holidays - Low Cost Holidays to Corfu

Nightlife in Corfu

With a large student population, Corfu Town and environs stay lively all year round. A handful of dance clubs lie west past the New Port, while more sedentary bars appear in the centre, especially around Platía Vrahlióti in Corfu's old town.

Lucciola Garden

Although known primarily as an excellent,creative, vegetarian-friendly Med-fusion-cuisine restaurant, and wedding venue (call ahead to make sure such an event is not scheduled for your intended visit), Lucciola Garden is also notable for two or three monthly live music sessions out in the tiered garden (typically Fri eve and Sat afternoon), probably acoustic guitar and song on Friday, piano-backed singer the next day. Consult their Facebook page for upcoming events. In case you were wondering, the name means ‘firefly’ in Italian – along with the northern mainland opposite and neighbouring Paxí islet, Corfu is the only place in Greece home to the creatures.

Address: Sgómbou hamlet, 2km past Tzávros junction, about 12km in total out of Corfu Town on the Paleokastrítsa road, southwest side layby
Contact: 00 30 26610 91804 or 6934 387701;
Opening times: daily, 1.30pm to midnight in season, winter Fri/Sat dinner, Sun lunch

DiZi Bar

Doesn’t look like much with its relatively narrow shop-front, but a firm favourite among both locals and visitors thanks to Thursday-to-Saturday-night theme parties (a mix of Greek, trance and reggae; look for posters locally on utility poles, or check their facebook page). Affordable drink (the priciest cocktail is just €8), a large terrace space and an affable owner make DiZi likely to survive in a climate that has lately claimed the scalps of many other Corfu resort clubs.

Address: Érmones approach road, 200m before beach
Contact: 00 30 26610 95080 or 6981 314069;
Opening times: daily from 8am in summer, weekends only out of season

54 Dreamy Nights

House, hip hop, mainstream Greek sounds at this vast dance club with hi-tech light shows; Fri and Sat are the most likely nights for DJd events.

Address: Alley behind Ethnikís Andístasis 54, inland from new port

Contact: 00 30  6940 645436
Opening times: nightly in peak season, otherwise Fri/Sat only

Polyhoros Polytechno 

In Greek, a polýhoros is a multipurpose, multifunctional venue. Accordingly, this cool bar with recorded sounds and a DJ console, also hosts live events (often of an 'experimental' nature) 2 to 3 times weekly, most reliably Thursday and Friday, from 9.30–10pm onwards.

Address: Top of Solomoú, on left, corner Sholemvoúrgou, just before Néo Froúrio gate
, Ténedos district, Old Town
Contact: 00 30 26610 27794;
Opening times: daily, 8.30pm until late

Café Bristol

An old-town evergreen, with superb Art Nouveau tiles underfoot, quirky cluster-bulb lighting, good jazz, funk or Greek recorded sounds and fair prices for hot or alcoholic beverages. Standing room only after 7pm, when some overspill heads for adjacent, much noisier Boite facing the square.

Address: Evgeníou Voulgáreos, corner Platía Vrahlióti
Contact: 00 30 6936 660101
Open: daily from about 9am until small hours

Edem Beach Club

The recession has cut a swathe through clubs closer to town on the traditional “strip”, but this remoter one – with guest foreign DJs and themed parties a few nights weekly – looks set to ride things out, especially as it also functions as a 'day' club.

Address: off main highway, Dassiá
Contact: 00 30 26610 93013;
Open: daily from 11am in summer until dawn, drops to weekends only before June or after mid-Sept
