One of the busiest and liveliest resorts on the idyllic Greek island of Corfu, young holidaymakers often descend on Kavos for its seaside location and hedonistic vibe. It truly is a destination that comes alive at night. Gather with like-minded people and soak up the feel-good atmosphere on the neon-lit strip, where pumping music streams from every bar and club. From foam parties to the infamous fishbowl, it’s no surprise Kavos is known as the party capital of Corfu. Here’s everything you need to know about Kavos nightlife.
For a first-timer, there’s no better place to bar hop than on Kavos’ famous strip. Bouncing from one club to another all night long is a Kavos nightlife tradition, and this buzzing strip is packed with most of the resort’s best bars and clubs. Watch your favourite team play at a sports bar before moving onto a traditional English or Irish pub, or head straight to the cocktail bars before moving on for a spot of karaoke.
Expect to be lured in with promises of free shots, two-for-one offers and cheap club entry. With its central location, non-stop party tunes and unusual cocktails, Buzz Bar is one of the best bars to visit in Kavos. You can also head to JC’s to dance to Indie music as you share the bar’s iconic fishbowl with friends.
As the night stretches on into the small hours, there’s only one choice left and that’s to hit the city’s clubs. When it comes to clubbing, Kavos is one of the best. A little like Ibiza but without the bank-balance-breaking club entry fees, clubs here are open every night with lasers, beats and dancing until dawn. Expect top DJs from around the world gracing the decks on a regular basis. Top spots include the Future Club, where the likes of Judge Jules, Tim Westwood and Ratpac have played to huge crowds, while Limelights is best for cheesy floorfillers.
Looking to swap the predictable in favour of something a little more unexpected? Then make sure you get tickets to one of the resorts’ foam or paint parties. Join the vibrant crowd at one of these wet and colourful events and dance in an electrifying atmosphere. One of Kavos’ nightlife’s most-attended events, the paint party combines hundreds of revellers, cans of paint, DJs and drink deals. A foam party will bring something different to your Kavos holiday too, with its giant foam cannons, resident DJs, and dance music. Just don’t forget your towel and flip-flops!
Before you hit the bars and clubs and really dive headfirst into the Kavos nightlife scene, you’ll want to make sure you’ve had a big meal first. Forget about saving your euros for your night out and cooking in your apartment, make sure you eat out at one of Kavos’ restaurants instead. Whether you want to try some traditional Greek food, English pub grub, a good curry or Tex Mex, you’ll find tasty and reasonably priced food nearby. There’s plenty of options for a quick snack or fast food to eat on your way back to your hotel too.
