Best places in Rhodes
Bar street, aperitifs on the beach, clubs and places
Want to drink or eat? Happy hour or dinner? Rhodes, with its Old Town, the new area, the alleys and beaches, certainly does not lack a lot of offers as regards places. Right, but which one to choose? In the capital of the island, Rhodes Town the offer is definitely more varied and suitable for all tastes.
The port area, for example, is full of bars and traditional taverns, where you will find the charm of the traditional Greece, while in the new part of the city there is a wide choice of clubs and discos.
Let’s start with the one that many know as the bar street of Rhodes: it is located on the seafront, a few steps from the center of the new city. There you can find all the types of places and disco bars offering music and entertainment for all tastes. Like the Colorado, a huge disco bar divided into two floors: at first you can have a drink listening to live music, while on the second floor you can unleash on the notes of the most famous DJs of the island.
In the old town of Rhodes there are numerous cafes, fast food restaurants, souvlaki and Gyros shops, Greek taverns and restaurants. In Ipokratous (Hippocrates) square the Plaka Taverna offers live Greek music while in the Panorama bar you can enjoy cocktails and music in the bar on the second floor.
If what you are looking for is a quieter and more refined place, then you can take a stroll towards Kyprou square, where you will find some lounge-bars offering excellent cocktails in an environment frequented mostly by locals. Svedco, for example, is a quiet café during the day and a wild club with music at night. Also the places of the Old City are many and often very different. Among the most popular is the Todo bien (very popular with Italian tourists), where every night you can dance to the sounds of Latin music.
If instead you want to have a happy hour always in Rhodes city, but by the sea, there is a perfect place for you at the Eli beach, and it is the bar on the sea that bears the name of the beach and offers excellent aperitifs looking at the sunset.
But of course, in the evening there is not only Rhodes town, if you are hunting for the right place. Even the bays and beaches are full of chances and opportunities, from the quietest to the wildest. The Lindos City, for example, can really be very lively and fascinating during the summer and in the high season. With its numerous bars, restaurants and typical taverns, some of which directly perched on the rooftops, to admire beautiful views at sunset. And with its most chic and exclusive bars and clubs, definitely worth visiting, and worth spending even more than just one evening.
