Sun, sea, sand and vibrant nightlife in Kos: this island has it all. Friends and couples looking for a good time will find the drinks flowing and music blaring all night in the superstar clubs in the party areas of Kos Town and Kardamena. There are also lots of family-friendly and more refined entertainment options every night that cater to anyone who wants to head out after dark for some fun.
Clubs in Kos
If it’s all-night partying that you’re after, Kardamena, on the southern coast of the island, is the place to head. This lively resort is home to a selection of clubs and bars catering to the party crowd. The fittingly named Bar Street is the main area for late-night partying, with a wide choice of places to eat as well as drink and dance.
If you’re on holiday in Kos with a group of friends or a loved one, you can boogie the night away at clubs like Starlight, which is open into the small hours. This popular nightclub welcomes around 1,000 clubbers each night who come to enjoy the beats from a host of top international DJs.
Kos Town nightlife
As the capital of Kos, Greece, nightlife in Kos Town is plentiful. Like Kardemena, the main action takes place in the Bar Street area and the harbour and you’ll find the streets here are still bustling with party-goers at 3am. Grab a glow stick and rave the night away at one of the all-night clubs. Enjoy a cocktail as the sun goes down at one of the many beach bars. For a different sort of night out, make the most of the balmy weather and sit back to enjoy a film at the Orfeas Open Air Cinema down by the water.
Family-friendly nightlife in Kos
If you’re on holiday in Kos with children you can still make the most of the warm evenings. If you’re staying in an All-Inclusive resort, you’ll find entertainment programmes on site running into the evening to keep the whole family happy.
If you want to head out to explore, you’ll also find lots to keep all ages happy. Sports fans are well catered for too. If you and the family don’t want to miss the match, just head to one of the many sports bars in the main resorts.
Cultural evenings out in Kos
For a more relaxed and authentic evening out, take a trip to some of the island’s smaller and more traditional villages. In Zia, you can sit back with your drink to enjoy the sunset views. Visit Pyli during the Fanos (bonfire) festival to watch locals celebrating their traditional customs. Another festival to look out for is the Hippocratia Festival. From traditional dances and theatrical performances to a range of activities for the kids, this cultural event is held every summer season on Kos.
