The Tsilivi nightlife scene is pretty relaxed, so it doesn't matter whether you're on a family holiday or a romantic getaway, there's something for everyone to enjoy after dark. From themed-nights sipping exotic cocktails to a quick karaoke session with happy-hour drinks deals, this town has everything you could need to enjoy a good night out. It's ideal for anyone who prefers a slightly quieter night on the town. The locals running these bars are famous for their warm hospitality and friendly welcome. Drinks are usually served until the small hours, so if you fancy a late one you won't be disappointed. Our top tip: pace yourself; evenings start later and carry on until the sun comes up, so don't get started too early. If you prefer a beach party, then you're in luck because there's one almost every day here. There's nothing better than gazing over the ocean as the sun begins to set over the turquoise sea, before hitting the town and discovering the best of Tsilivi nightlife. Laganas, the clubbing capital of Zante, is just a short 15-minute cab drive away. If you feel like dancing all night, in some of the best clubs on the island, this is the place to be. Here are some of our favourite nightlife hotspots:
Planet PubThis venue has so much on offer, and we're not just talking about their extensive cocktail menu (which has over 150 blends for you to sample). They have a pool, a delicious snack bar, and an air hockey table. The outdoor dance floor gets pretty full on the nights they have a DJ. Planet Pub is chilled out and relaxed, with a great atmosphere.
Kaliva PubIf you want to spend an evening with your kids then head to Kaliva. Here the little ones can enjoy themselves in the play area and sample some of the pub's famous mock-tails, while you and your partner sit in a beer garden and relax. It's the perfect place for trying a pint of locally brewed beer, or a cocktail or two of your own.
Ark BarThis is the bar for sports fans who don't want to miss a moment of the action. There are screens everywhere, and when the game is on the atmosphere is electric yet still welcoming (even if you're not a fan of the beautiful game). The beamed wooden interior gives the venue a bit of a nautical feel. It's perfect for enjoying reasonably priced drinks in a chilled-out atmosphere.
Paradise Cocktail BarThis lively bar is allegedly the best bar in Greece, and with over two decades of experience hosting top-notch parties, they know a thing or two about a good night out. The décor is fun and funky, and their colourful cocktails certainly add to the tropical vibe.
