Ballshevik dance club grand opening
July 2 marks the big debut of Ballshevik, a new dance club venue located in the Klouvas area of Mykonos (roughly midway along the road between Mykonos Town and Ano Mera). With weekly “Mongays” and “Frigays” plus Thursday “Fruit Dance” events, the club clearly appears to be targeting the island’s sizable gay travel market, but hasn’t branded itself as an entertainment venue for any specific lifestyle and should have wide appeal.
Ballshevik’s opening night party is being presented by Red Bull Music Academy and will feature a special DJ set by legendary synth-disco artist and producer Giorgio Moroder (see this entry on the RBMA events page for further info about Moroder’s appearance).
Ballshevik has events scheduled for every night in July. Below are promotional flyers that were posted on the Ballshevik Facebook page for some of this week’s upcoming parties.

Nammos brings Angelique to Psarou beach
It’s one of the top beach restaurants and nightclubs on Mykonos, but on July 4 Nammos by the Sea will look and feel more like one of the hottest nightspots in Turkey instead.

The event starts at 22:30 (10:30 p.m.) on Friday, and tickets cost €80 per person. Check the Nammos by the Sea Facebook page for information about how to RSVP for the event.
