What’s happening: Summer is still several months off, but readers already have started asking me for information about Mykonos bar and club opening dates, party and DJ schedules, and other events.

The island’s 2019  party season will unfold in much the same way as previous years: bars and clubs in Mykonos Town, and at some beaches, will gradually begin to open towards the end of April.  Greek Easter is Sunday April 28 this year, so the period from April 26 to 29 will be the busiest time on Mykonos for that particular month. Many places will aim to open in time for the long holiday weekend, so the bars will buzzing with a lively Easter party vibe.

Most town bars and beach clubs will open during May, and almost everything will be up and running by early June (though each year there are a few new clubs that get a late start and don’t open until early to mid-July). 

May and June are low season, so the party scene then is fairly low-key — especially in May. The partying revs up each week as more and more tourists arrive on the island, however, and by late June the crowds will be bigger and the bars and clubs will be absolutely bustling.

 

Peak party season is July and August, with August being the wildest and busiest time by far. If you’re looking for frenzied, wall-to-wall crowds, appearances by the world’s top DJs, and non-stop partying from afternoon until dawn the next day, be sure to book your Mykonos holiday for either of those two months. 

Partying continues through September, but the pace of activity slows each week as the summer crowds gradually dissipate and the island’s bigger clubs start winding down and shutting their doors. September is nonetheless  a great time to visit Mykonos for a more relaxed, chill atmosphere, fewer crowds and congestion, and some sizzling season closing parties. Last year, Void held its closing bash on September 7,  with Guzel and Toy Room Club following suit on September 8. Club 4711, Sueno Pool Bar and The Garden Seaview Lounge all held their closing parties on September 15, while Cavo Paradiso threw its final event on September 25. Babylon, @54, Queen of Mykonos,and Astra celebrated the end of their season on September 29, while JackieO’ Beach, Scorpios and Moni clubs closed their doors on September 30.

 

 

A good variety of smaller bars and clubs will remain open into October,  but most beach clubs and town bars will be shuttered by the middle of the month.  During the first 10 days of October last year, closing parties took place at Nammos, Semeli Bar, JackieO’ Town Bar, Alemagou, Kaula, Scarpa, Skandinavian Bar, Lohan Beach House and Bao’s Cocktail Bar. Super Paradise beach club and 180° Sunset Bar closed on October 20, while the final parties at Paradise beach took place on October 21. Partying after October was limited to a handful of small bars that stay open year-round for the local residents.

If you’re travelling to Mykonos on a budget this year, plan to make your hotel or room reservations very soon — Mykonos is one of the most expensive places to visit in Greece, and the majority of cheap and mid-priced accommodations will be fully booked by spring. The only hostel in Mykonos Town, MyCocoon, is already accepting reservations for May 1 and onwards, while one of the top beach accommodations for budget travellers, Paraga Beach Hostel & Camping, will begin taking bookings through its website on January 15. 

I will be updating this post whenever bars and clubs have announced their opening dates and events, so check back from time to time during the winter to see what’s new.

In the meantime, if you want to get an idea of what the party scene was like during specific months last year, have a look at my Mykonos party posts for 2018:

      There isn’t such a thing as a full calendar of events for Mykonos. Most bars and clubs haven’t even announced their opening dates yet, and are nowhere near ready to release special event schedules.

  2. Hi! Will there be any beach clubs left by 20th September? Thanks for the post!

      Try checking his page on Facebook to see if he announces any appearances in Mykonos this year. There is no information yet on whether he will be touring to Mykonos.

      If you’re going during July or August, there’s tons of partying every day of the week.

      • Thanks, how about end of may?

          End of May is still early season so places are still opening up and getting going before the summer crowds arrive. There will be afternoon & evening beach parties at Super Paradise and Paradise, and numerous bars and clubs will be open. You’ll have to keep checking back to this post for updates because very few places have announced their opening dates yet, and even fewer specific party events have been scheduled.

  5. Hi, thanks for the amazing post. Me and my husband are planning to travel to Mykonos after 15th September. We will be travelling from India. Need your suggestion on the beach parties post 15th September.

      It is way, way, way too early to tell you what will even be open after September 15. Only a few clubs have announced their spring openings …. none will have decided yet when their closing dates will be. You’ll have to check back in September because after the middle of that month is when the party scene quickly winds down and bars & clubs start closing.

  6. Be there 4/18 till 4/20. Will there b epartying happening

    • admin

      March 22, 2019 at 9:44 am

      Yes, there will …. but it won’t be wild & crazy like summer since bars and clubs are just starting to open and there won’t be a lot of tourists on the island yet.

  7. Hi. We are travelling for 2 days from 23rd- 24th March. Any recommendations for clubs that may be open or any nightlife suggestions? Thank you.

      No clubs will be open yet, just the small bars that are indicated in this post. And Vegera restaurant, which the post notes is having parties with a DJ each night this weekend.
