The Island of the Winds: Much like the dry Meltemi winds that blast the island every summer, the winds of change blow strongly on Mykonos, bringing a flurry of brand-new hotels, restaurants, bars and shops for each fresh travel season.

This cycle of constant change and renewal is an integral part of what makes Mykonos so vibrant, exciting and enthralling — it ensures there are always plenty of new places popping up where visitors can explore and enjoy the latest Greek and international trends in design, decor, fashion, food, drink and entertainment.

Here are snapshots of some of the notable changes and newcomers that Mykonos visitors will discover during the 2022 travel season.

 

 

Social media post announcing the summer 2022 opening of La Cantine du Faubourg

Coming to Ornos beach this summer, the seaview restaurant and bar La Cantine du Faubourg bills itself as “Mykonos’s new luxury playground.”  An outdoor restaurant featuring Parisian cuisine and French social flair, it’s designed to be a must-visit lifestyle destination, built on four guiding principles: “sound, music, image, and food. Cultural venue meets dining destination, meeting spot or late-night hideout, La Cantine du Faubourg is whatever its guests want it to be, and more,” says an introduction on the venue’s website. Opening date has not yet been announced, but the restaurant’s website booking portal is accepting reservations from July 1 to September 30.

— Updated on May 26 —

 

The beaches beckon: Judging by the messages we’ve been receiving, and the posts we’ve been seeing on social media, substantially more people are heading to Mykonos for holidays a lot earlier this year than in the travel boom years preceding the pandemic — most likely to make up for vacation opportunities lost during Covid lockdowns and restrictions.

The island welcomed a trickle of tourists in February, and the flow of visitors rose steadily during March.  Advance bookings indicate that April arrivals could set a record. It’s a sharp contrast to pre-Covid times, when May 1 was traditionally considered the beginning of the travel season and few people considered going to Mykonos before then.

 

 

While most of the off-season and early spring travellers realize Mykonos is primarily a summer destination, and expect things to be fairly quiet during their visits, many have still been asking: Which beach clubs will be open?

It’s a question we find surprising, since it suggests many people just aren’t aware that Mykonos and the rest of Greece get blustery weather and cold temperatures in winter — and sometimes even snow (see our posts The powdery white Mykonos  beaches few tourists ever see and After the Elpis snowstorm if you don’t believe us). And though the temperature tends to warm up during April, early spring isn’t the best time to visit if beach activities like sunbathing and swimming are priorities. (August and September are the best months for that.)

For anyone going to Mykonos after mid-April, though, the good news is they might get to spend some time at a beach club or bar, if the weather is decent. Paradise beach club opens on April 12, Principote on April 20, Alemagou on the 21st, Nammos on the 29th, and Tropicana — also at Paradise beach — is starting its season on April 30. At Super Paradise beach, a brand-new spot, Paraj, is aiming to open by the end of April, too. Four other venues — JackieO’ Beach, Pinky Beach, Scorpios and SantAnna — have announced opening dates ranging from May 6 to 16. We expect more will be opening by mid-May, if not sooner, especially if tourist traffic continues to increase significantly.

To see which beach clubs and bars are opening and when, keep scrolling through this post. We have compiled this list of opening dates,  and will be adding venues as soon as they reveal when they plan to start their seasons. So check back for updates. We also have highlighted some new beach clubs that are expected to open this summer. Once they announce their official openings, we’ll update this post with that information.

What’s open:  After two years of Covid lockdowns and restrictions, fun seekers from around the world will be flocking to Mykonos in 2022 to chill, dance and party — and put the pandemic behind them.

Although summer is still months away, the infamous Mykonos party scene is already warming up.

Island residents have been getting into the party mood all this month (March), starting with DJ and live music events during the Carnival weekend of March 4 to 6, and really revving up during the March 24 to 27 holiday weekend celebrating Greece’s Independence Day.

Promenade, Paloma, Mosaic, Velanos, El Burro, Wild Cafe-Bar and Vegera have been among the party hotspots during winter and early spring, hosting weekend bashes with DJs and live music entertainment. Cosi Bar and La Barran followed suit the last weekend in March.

 

 

With tourists arriving on the island much earlier than in pre-pandemic travel years, other Mykonos bars, lounges and nightclubs have begun announcing their opening dates,  also much sooner than usual. 180 Sunset Bar,  JackieO’ Town Bar, Semeli, Bao’s, Rhapsody, Lola, Galleraki, 54, Chill Out Lounge and Astra nightclub all will be opening in April, followed in May by JackieO’ Yacht Club, Lio and Cavo Paradiso (which has already revealed the DJ lineups for its three opening week parties in May, as well as the dates for international DJ appearances in July and August — as you’ll see by scrolling through this post). Sanctus club will open June 1. 

In this post, we’ll spotlight the cocktail and nightlife spots that have already opened, along with places that have indicated when they will be launching their seasons.

We’re expecting more opening day announcements to come soon, so check back for updates — we will add other bars and clubs once they reveal their plans.

For opening date information for bars and clubs located at beaches, see our separate blog post Mykonos beach club openings in 2022.

Mykonos events from August to December 2021

Share

 

Final update on Wednesday December 29

 

What was on: The 2021 tourist season ended in October for most hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants and shops on Mykonos, but that didn’t mean the island shut down completely for the winter.

More than two dozen restaurants and bars that serve local residents year-round kept their doors open, as usual, while numerous places that normally close by mid-October extended their seasons into November as business from late-season island visitors remained steady.  A few brand-new hangouts even opened up in the post-season to offer fresh options for drinking and dining after the tourist-oriented venues shuttered for the winter. Newcomers Elaion, La Barran, Mosaic, Paloma, Promenade and Velanos were among the bars and restaurants that stayed open into December.

Gala New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations had been scheduled for several bars and restaurants, but those events were cancelled when the Greek government imposed operating hour restrictions and banned the playing of music — a year-end attempt to control the skyrocketing number of Covid cases caused by the Omicron variant.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, 2021 turned out to be a surprisingly good year for Mykonos tourism, producing a huge bump in visitor traffic compared to 2020.  Traffic jams, sold-out hotels, and crowded bars and restaurants during August and September, in particular, gave the impression things were almost back to normal, while October and November saw more tourist arrivals than usual for those months.

Although Omicron put a damper on year-end festivities, tourist-related businesses on Mykonos are optimistic about 2022, since advance bookings for hotels have been strong, as has interest in the island on social media.

What will happen tourism-wise  in 2022 is anybody’s guess, but if infections caused by Omicron peak in winter, and the pandemic begins to burn out by spring, you can expect a robust travel season on Mykonos. The island will be ready for it. Dozens of exciting new hotels, restaurants and bars opened  in 2021 (see our post Mykonos restaurants, bars, clubs & more: What’s new for 2021  for details), while more are in the works for 2022.

Unfortunately for many repeat visitors, however, several popular restaurants and bars won’t be returning in 2022, including Avra, Babylon, Central and Joanna’s Nikos Place (see more on that below).

If you have never been to Mykonos before, but think you might finally make it there in 2022, this post will show you the types of events that take place on the island each summer. Our listing of parties, DJ appearances and cultural events held  from August to December 2021 will give you an idea of what you can expect if you visit during any of those same months in 2022.

 

Major autumn closing and opening announcements

 

Closing announcement for Joanna's Niko's Place on Mykonos

Joanna’s Nikos Place, the much-beloved beach taverna at Megali Ammos, is closing its doors permanently. In an announcement shared on social media December 9, owner Joanna Daktilidi broke the news that she is ceasing operations of the taverna after a 30-year run.

 

Madoupas Meats in Argyraina area of Mykonos

On Saturday December 4, Madoupas Meats opened a new shop in Argyraina — their third outlet on Mykonos — giving visitors another place to stock up on food for their villas, Airbnbs orself-catering holiday accommodation rentals

 

Babylon Bar on Mykonos

2021 has been the final season of operations for Babylon Bar. In a social media post on November 29, club owners Jose & Stratos announced that, “after 13 years full of happiness, pride, and entertainment, the time has come for Babylon Mykonos to put an end to a ride that will always be in our hearts for years to come.”

 

Avara Restaurant on Mykonos

It’s the end of an era: The elegant fine dining Avra Restaurant is closing permanently after 22 years of operations. Owners Nikos Iliopoulos and Sarah Pearson announced the news in a November 23 post on Facebook, stating: “we have felt blessed to be part of an incredible magical Mykonos era that many of us feel is unfortunately now fading fast. We hope we have made everlasting memories for your times in Mykonos and… well… perhaps … we may be back to make more.”

 

5x5 Multiplex restaurant at Ornos Mykonos

5×5 Multiplex is a new restaurant that opened in Ornos in mid-November. Open every day except Monday from 7 a.m. until midnight, it’s a casual go-to spot for coffee, breakfast, brunch, lunch, crepes, waffles, burgers, souvlaki and more. You’ll find it across from the athletic stadium along the road from Korfos to Agios Ioannis

 

The interior of Elaion Mykonos restaurant on Mykonos

Mykonos residents and visitors have a new place to dine out during the winter — the Italian restaurant, pizzeria and bar Elaion Mykonos has just opened in the Vougli district of the island (in the premises formerly occupied by Taverna Kandavlos).  If the name Elaion sounds familiar, that’s because the restaurant is owned by the same people who operate the Elaion restaurant on nearby Syros island. According to the Elaion Mykonos page on Facebook, the restaurant is open daily from 2 p.m. until midnight.

 

La Taverna Greka seen in an image shared on social media by Maria Kavalari

You’ll find the taverna tucked into a lane beside the ALIS fashion boutique on Mitropoleos street.

Autumn Cultural Events

 

Robert McCabe photo exhibition on Mykonos autumn 2021

Exhibition of Mykonos photos from the 1950s by Robert McCabe

“The Island that seduced the world — Mykonos in the 50s” is an exhibition of images by noted American photographer Robert McCabe, who first visited Greece in the 1950s and captured portraits of local residents and scenery on subsequent multiple trips to the island and elsewhere in the Aegean.  Exhibits of McCabe’s fascinating photos are on display in two places: from August 1 to October 31 at the archaeological site in the Mykonos Kastro (next to the iconic Paraportiani Church), and from August 4 to December 31 at the Mykonos Archaeological Museum above the Old Port.

 Going to Mykonos after the middle of September? Some Covid-related restrictions that could impact your vacation are still in effect on the island.

From September 15 until further notice from the government, bars and restaurants must continue to close at midnight every day, and cannot reopen before 7 a.m. However, businesses can offer food and beverage takeaway and delivery service beyond the midnight closing time.

In addition, there is a limit on the number of people allowed to participate in any public or social event. No more than 50 people can attend public or social gatherings, regardless of whether they take place in a public or private location. These include ceremonies such as weddings, baptisms and funerals, banquet-type receptions and festivities, and other events geared to large groups.

The special measures are part of the Greek government’s efforts to control and limit the spread of coronavirus, as new cases of Covid-19 continue to rise in many parts of the country.

Stringent restrictions were implemented on Mykonos on August 19 after the island experienced an increase in the number of people testing positive for the coronavirus around the middle of that month.

The rules took effect on Friday August 21, and stipulated that:

♦ Masks had to be worn indoors AND outdoors;

♦ Live parties, trade fairs, public markets, parades and processions could not take place;

♦ There was a ban on any kind of gathering of more than 9 people, for any reason, whether in public or in private

♦ in restaurant dining areas, a maximum of 4 people would be allowed to sit at the same table (a maximum of 6 in the case of immediate members of families)

In addition, the existing requirement that bars and restaurants close from midnight to 7 a.m. every day was extended until August 31. (The midnight shutdown originally was supposed to end on August 23.)

The government has since extended all of the above restrictions to September 15 as it strives to fend off an expected second wave of the coronavirus after cases spiked in a number of destinations in Greece.

Police on Mykonos had been enforcing the mask rule by issuing €150 tickets to some  people who didn’t comply; however, mask wearing was not required for people sunbathing or swimming at beaches and pools. Government officials also inspected businesses on the island to ensure they were complying with the coronavirus safety measures.

The government’s strict enforcement of some measures made international headlines on Tuesday September 1, when officials with the General Secretariat of Civil Protection conducted surprise inspections on two of the island’s best-known beach clubs, Nammos and Scorpios, and tested their employees for coronavirus. Following the inspection, the government ordered the two clubs to cease operations until September 4.  According to media reports, the Scorpios staff all tested negative for the virus, so the club was allowed to re-open on September 4. At Nammos, on the other hand, two employees tested positive, and authorities ordered the club to stay closed for an additional 10 days. The club hired lawyers to appeal that decision, but ultimately decided to close early for the season and shuttered the premises on September 7, saying the club will reopen at the end of April in 2021.

Since then, at least three other beach clubs — Lohan Beach House, Solymar and Pinky Beach — have closed for the season, and a number of restaurants and bars have also shut for the winter, including Adelon Sunset Bar, Busulas, Bakalo, Catari and Fokos Taverna. More restaurants as well as hotels are expected to close unusually early this year because tourist traffic is down tremendously this September — normally a busy month.

If you do travel to the island toward the end of this month, expect a quiet low-season atmosphere without the typical September buzz.

New & noteworthy: Besides the iconic white Cycladic architecture, sparkling Aegean Sea and brilliant sunshine, there’s much to bedazzle first-time visitors to Mykonos — a dizzying array of glitzy shops, glam restaurants, bustling bars and chic accommodations among them. With dozens of new establishments opening on the island each year, Mykonos maintains its famously vibrant and exciting atmosphere for returning visitors and local residents alike.

This summer has been no exception, as I have discovered: More than thirty new enterprises that have set up shop in and around Mykonos Town, at some of the famous beaches and elsewhere on the island. The newcomers include places to eat, drink, party, shop and sleep, plus some enlightening and fascinating attractions and activities.

Among the noteworthy highlights of this year’s arrivals:

♦ A new beach club at Kalo Livadi, sunset boat party cruises to Rhenia island, and a really, really, really cool place to get an ice cold drink. And, for night owls, three new spots to party into the wee hours of the morning;

♦ Fun olive oil tasting workshops where participants can sample some of the best Greek extra virgin olive oils and learn how to pair oils with food to elevate flavours and make their home cooking shine;

♦ Four art new galleries and exhibition spaces — including one outdoors — showcasing contemporary Greek art and sculpture; 

♦ Over half a dozen boutiques and summer pop-ups offering fashionistas even more places to shop and browse exclusive designer clothing and accessories in Mykonos Town and at Psarou beach;

♦ A meticulously recreated Mykonian farmstead where tourists can experience what life was like on the island in the days before electricity and Internet, view folk art exhibitions, take cooking and bread baking classes, and dine on breakfasts and traditionally-prepared meals in the farm restaurant;

♦ A wide range of accommodations with lodging options ranging from rental studios and apartments to luxury hotels and beach resorts boasting suites and villas with private pools;

♦ A vast array of appetite-whetting places to enjoy food and beverages, including new coffee and dessert shops; street food cafes; vegan and healthy food eateries; and restaurants specializing in fish, seafood or sushi; meat dishes; pizza; crepes; breakfast & brunch; comfort food; and Greek, Italian, Mediterranean and international cuisine. 

 

Starting on page 2, I have compiled profiles of the new businesses, complete with photos, videos and links to their websites and social media pages (where available) so you can learn more and follow them if interested. I have deliberately packed this blog post with images so that readers who haven’t been to Mykonos before can get a good grasp of what Greece’s most sophisticated, cosmopolitan and international island is all about.

And just in case you think Mykonos is only a place where people go to party, bear in mind that the island also happens to be a major dining destination. With more than 400 places to eat, it’s a foodie delight, offering not just traditional and gourmet Greek food, fish and seafood, but also contemporary, internationally-inspired cuisines from around the globe.

Since many of the newcomers to Mykonos this season are restaurants and cafes, I have included plenty of pictures to show some of the food they serve — appetizers, main courses, breakfasts and desserts. But here’s an important warning: Don’t continue reading if you’re the least bit hungry; otherwise, you could feel absolutely ravenous by the time you finish scrolling through all the food photos!
