… and this is Cavo Paradiso’s international DJ lineup for July and August. Curiously, the club did not release a full schedule of events for June.

What’s happening:  Now that it is spring, some Mykonos bars and clubs have opened for the 2016 tourist season, while others have begun announcing the dates they will re-open.

Ling Ling got things off to an early start on March 23 when it kicked off its second season on Mykonos. It was followed in early April by Passo Doble Cocktail Bar, the JackieO’ bar in Mykonos Town, and Room 101. Mid-April saw the opening of popular gay hangouts Lola and Porta Bar, along with Galleraki Bar and Vicolo Bar at Little Venice. Scarpa Bar and Semeli Bar in Little Venice will open in late April, as will Thalami Bar behind the Mykonos Town Hall, and Remezzo near the Old Port. Beach parties resumed in mid-April with Guapaloca Bar and Tropicana Club opening at Paradise Beach. They will be joined the last week of April by Nammos at Psarou beach and Kalua Bar at Paraga. And in May,  Scorpios will celebrate its grand re-opening at Paraga beach.



















Speaking of beach clubs, there will be at least two new spots to check out this summer. Rakkan Mykonos will be opening in late May at Kalo Livadi beach, while Monarch has moved to Platis Gialos beach. See my post New beach bar/restaurant venues coming to Mykonos for further details about those two places.

Party schedules will be posted here when available

Bookmark this page and keep checking back — I will be updating this post with information about bar & club openings, and DJ schedules, as soon as events are announced. Keep in mind that the island’s biggest party clubs generally don’t post detailed summer party lineups until late May to mid June, while many bars don’t publicize their season kick-off celebrations until shortly before they open their doors.

For information about ticket prices, advance booking, table reservations and VIP services, please contact the specific clubs you are interested in.

And if you want to get a general idea of what to expect around the time you’re planning to visit Mykonos this summer, scroll through my 2015 party post, which lists club openings and party events that took place each month between March and November last year.

Two great articles about Cavo Paradiso have been published this winter. Have a look at ClubWorld’s Mediterranean Clubbing Mecca, and Thump’s How clubbing has provided a refuge during Greece’s economic hardships.

      It’s not too late, but you’ll be there at the time the big clubs are winding down. If you want to experience the club scene at its best, try to push your holiday to August instead. But you’ll still have a great time if you can only travel Sept 6 to 14.

    • Hi Rebecca, i’m planning to go on 8 September and i think that everything will be open about clubs

  5. Hi
    We are traveling to Mykonos between April 16th till April the 19th 2016, is there any events on during this time? Or can you recommend any bars/clubs that may be open?

      No events have been announced for April yet. Any club openings or events that are announced will be shown in my blog post.

  6. Hi, I am looking to be in Mykanos in early April (4-7th). Would the night clubs/party scenes have started? These would be weekdays.


    • admin

      March 6, 2016 at 9:47 am

      Early April is too early for the club scene. None of the big clubs will be open. The only place that has announced it will be open by then is Ling Ling. Smaller bars will be open though.

  7. Hi .. I m planning to be in mykonos in april 6-7 .. Is there going to be any party scene at beach side . Which area should i stay in (town or beach).

    Thanks ..

  8. Hello!

    Visiting Mykonos in early May, will there be any decent nights out?

  9. Hey man what’s up? I’ll be in Mykonos during the first week of June and it seems that all the big events will be in July/August. Is the party scene going to be completely dead (excluding weekends)? And what are the best clubs/beaches that will be picking up the pace early on to visit during that time period? Also, any big events or DJs in early June to start prepring for or are they only in July/August? Thanks in advance 🙂

      Mykonos isn’t dead in early June. It’s low season and really just the beginning of the party season, but there will be events at the major clubs and you’ll find a good party scene in bars around the island. Check my post listing events in 2015 …. if you look at what was happening in early June last year, you’ll get an idea of what you can expect on your trip.

  10. Hi,

    I am coming on July 29- August 1 for a hen party. I was wondering which beach parties and night clubs/ bars you recommend. I was hoping to get tables at the beach parties for Friday & Saturday and then head to bars and then one table at a night club on the Sunday. Any recommendations? Also- can I book and pay for tables at clubs in advance?


  11. Hey! Traveling to Mykonos July 2-5. Also curious about booking tables/bottle service in advance? What are typical prices like at the big clubs? Thank you!!

      Mykonos will not be quiet that weekend. You are going to be there during Greek Orthodox Easter, which is HUGE — it’s as big an event on the Greek calendar as Christmas is in western countries. There are bound to be many bars opening up in time to celebrate that weekend.

  14. Hello planning to travel to Mykonos on the 26th – 30th May.
    What should we expect as a good night life in when there?

  15. hello ,

      Depends. Are you looking for the wild & crazy scenes you see on YouTube, where people are packed into all the bars and clubs like sardines? Too early for that. You have to go in July and August for the best, biggest and most crowded parties. At the time you’re planning to go it won’t be as crowded or crazy, but you’ll still have a good time.

  18. Hello,i am coming Mykono from 26-31 of July,can you help me with event please?

  19. Hi, I am visiting Mykonos from 21st May to 24th May and staying in Mykonos Town. What are the ‘must go’ bars/clubs. And would it be hot enough during that time?

      You can get to Paradise beach in daytime on shuttle boats from Elia beach. They stop running in late afternoon though. To get to Mykonos Town, you can use the limited bus servicein daytime but the buses don’t run at night. You would have to take taxis or rent a vehicle to drive to Town. Skandinavian Bar in Mykonos Town is always busy and Paradise is the busiest beach, but Super Paradise is worth checking out too. You can take a shuttle boat to Super Paradise.

      Besides Skandinavian Bar, Room 101 has been busy this month too.

  22. Great site and lots of useful information for new travelers so thank you for piling all this information for us!
    Five of us bachelors will be visiting Mykonos from 10 July to 19 July and wanted to get your opinion on where are the best nights to go out. Its a friends birthday so we are coming from many different countries to celebrate and plan to go all out. No budget. Looking to dine and party at the islands most exclusive spots. So far I cant find any line ups for July posted anywhere so was hoping you might know your way around.

      Had you read the introduction to my post listing Mykonos club openings and events, you would have seen the sentence in which I said I will post events for July, August, September and October when party lineups are announced. You can’t find events because they haven’t been announced and promoted yet, except for the party at Nammos and the one at Alemagou that are included in my post.

  23. Owaou . Nice info!!, I am waiting for the high season posts!

  28. Hi

    I am visiting Aug 30-Sep 1, Tue-Thu. I would like to hit all of this summer’s “it” spots both during the day and in the evening on those particular days. Can you recommend top choices for day beach clubs, sunsets, restaurants for dinner, and bars/clubs on a Tue, Wed, and Thur?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

  29. I am planning on being in Greece the first two weeks in September. When will they have the best parties in Mykonos. The weekends only or during the week also ?

    • admin

      July 27, 2016 at 8:29 am

      The biggest clubs usually close by the middle of September but there will be plenty of bars and smaller clubs staying open until the end of the month. Events for September have not been announced yet.

  31. Hi there , I am planing a trip to Mykonos 28 August – 5 September 2016

      August 2, 2016 at 7:24 pm

      Yes there will be parties, though none have been announced yet. Take a look at page 3 of my post Mykonos beach parties + bar & club special events in 2015 and you’ll see the sort of parties you can expect again this September.

  33. Hi there,
    Will there be any parties/nights posted for September / October soon? Any recomendations. I know the big clubs will be closed but a guide on the other bars/parties would be good. Will be there 24Sept – 3 Oct

    • admin

      August 7, 2016 at 9:19 am

      No events have been announced yet for either September or October, so I can’t make any party/event recommendations without knowing what’s happening myself.

  34. I’m looking to go away around the 19th September and thinking of Mykonos, could you tell me what the nightlife is like around this time of year, is it still quite busy or completely quiet? Also what is the best area to stay near bars?

  35. Hi, I am visiting Mykonos on Oct 24th (Sunday) – Oct 27th (Thursday). Will there still be good parties on these days or better to change to a weekend? Thank you.

    • admin

      September 17, 2016 at 2:47 pm

      The tourist season will for all intents and purposes be over by then, so parties will mainly be Greek music events in smaller bars and cafe-bars popular with locals. These events usually take place on weekends. None of the clubs and none of the island’s larger bars will be open at that time and there will be no parties featuring international DJs.

  36. Can you pls advice if any good parties happen during October or any good clubs to visit. We there from the 14-16 october. Thanks!

    • admin

      September 22, 2016 at 1:48 pm

      No parties have been announced for October yet. All the bigger clubs will be closed by the time you get to Mykonos, so you will have to party at the smaller bars that are still open in Mykonos Town. No word yet if the beach parties will still be happening at Paradise or Super Paradise.

      • Hi! Thanks a ton. Could you pls advice some of the best smaller bars in that case in mykonos town that we could visit as its my birthday on the 15th october. Also could u pls kindly advice as soon as you figure out of any beach parties happening at all. Thanks, much appriciate it. Cheers!
