Chania Nightlife – Clubs, Bars & Nightlife Tips

Chania Nightlife

Chania is the second largest city in Crete and sits comfortably in the Mediterranean Sea. As a popular tourist resort, it has a robust nightlife full of clubs and bars.

Eastern Chania

Eastern Chania is a popular place for nightlife lovers to visit. Most visitors start at the Old Venetian Harbor and follow the harbor boardwalk. Along that route, you will find thousands of people who are there for dining and drinks. There are also strips of hotels and a number of clubs in the area.

Drinks and Dining

There are multiple bars around Chania. The Scandenavian Bar is often packed and invites a casual crowd. The Ababa Café Bar is another mellow destination that is open until two in the morning. Visitors can buy affordably priced drinks for only a few euros. Food is also served to customers, and there’s live music throughout the night.

However, if it’s live music you’re looking for, another place to visit is Stathmos. This small club hosts live bands who play authentic Greek music. It’s also a good place to go when you’re looking for a drink while hoping to stay within your budget. If you’re hoping to get a good view of Chania, then head over to Koukouvagia. Located at the highest part of the city, the tables on the main veranda are a good place to sit and watch the surrounding ocean. It’s also a place to stop in if you’re hoping to grab some food before the end of the night.
