Music & curfew news
Music returned to Tropicana — and other beach clubs, bars and restaurants on Mykonos — on Saturday June 12. On that day, the Greek government partially relaxed some Covid restrictions that had been in place since the country officially opened for tourism in May. Under those regulations, music could not be played, and there was a curfew requiring restaurants and bars to close by 00:30. Now, music is allowed in areas with customer seating, while the curfew has been extended to 01:30. Starting July 1, the curfew will be lifted and nightclubs will be allowed to open.
