Events added daily. Latest updates: August 13
As part of a new suite of measures aimed at containing the spread of a possible second wave of Covid-19, the Greek government on August 10 ordered that bars and restaurants in Mykonos, Santorini, and a number of other popular tourist destinations must close from midnight to 7 a.m. every day. The order takes effect starting on Tuesday August 11 and continues until Sunday August 23.
So far, two clubs — Sanctus and Toy Room — have announced they are closing for the season, while Negrita Bar has closed temporarily until August 27. Skandinavian Bar, JackieO’ Town Bar, Queen of Mykonos, Toro Loco, and Lola are among those that have changed their hours of operation to comply with the government-mandated curfew period. Cavo Paradiso has changed its DJ performance times and made some alterations to its DJ lineup, and will make announcements if further changes must be made. Other Mykonos bars and clubs have not yet announced how this regulation will impact their event schedules but it’s safe to assume all are complying with the midnight closure regulation to avoid steep fines and shutdown penalties for non-compliance.
This post will be updated with any changes that bars and clubs announce for their operations and event calendars.
