Cavo Paradiso launches its 25th season on Saturday May 12 with DJs Argie, AnXid & Heavy G
~ Updated on Saturday March 17 ~
Summer kickoff: Winter cabin fever must be setting in — I have begun receiving inquiries from people wondering when bars and clubs will be opening on Mykonos for the 2018 travel season.
I couldn’t give any precise dates for specific venues until January 10, when 180º Sunset Bar announced that it will launch its season on Sunday, April 1. It’s the first Mykonos venue to announce its plans so far, but more of the island’s popular drinking and partying places should be releasing their summer opening dates in the next few weeks. Last year, most venues opened their doors in either late April or early May, and this year shouldn’t be any different, though some spots might open in time to celebrate Greek Easter weekend (April 6 to 9).
Guapaloca Bar and Paradise Beach Resort are also opening in April, which means that partying resumes at Paradise Beach in less than three months.
