Lindos has as varied a nightlife as it does dining scene. You can chill out in a traditional courtyard, watch big screen sports or party away till the early hours!

BARS TO RELAX/CHILL OUT

Even many of the livelier music bars have quieter outside terraces but some of the nicer bars to just relax and take in the views are

APOLLO BAR (next to the main church of Lindos on the steps to Acropolis). A family ran bar with a great character and full of love. George, Betty, Panos, Marianthi, Fedra and Apostolis make everyone welcome with their big heart and smile.

CAPTAINS HOUSE (walk past Museum Bar and follow signs for the Acropolis). This is a traditional Lindian Captains House with the main bar situated in the front courtyard. Very atmospheric and a good place for pre dinner drinks.

RAINBIRD BAR (off to the left on the road to the small/pallas beach). Boasts the best views in Lindos and a nice place to rest for a beer after your walk up from the beach.

LINDOS BY NIGHT (down the road from Courtyard Bar). The inside bar of Lindos By Night can get quite lively but for a relaxing night with views over the village towards the Acropolis take a seat in one of the pretty garden terraces.

YANNIS BAR (on a corner as you turn from the main street towards Lindos Reception). Situated on a very busy corner and one of the best places in Lindos if you enjoy a bit of people watching.

THE SUNBURNT ARMS  (a few yards down from the donkey station by Hermes restaurant). A tiny, friendly bar run by a British couple who have been in Lindos for over 20 years. Popular with ex pats.

MUSIC BARS

Many bars worth visting but this list covers a few as you walk down from Lindos Reception/Top Car Park.

DREAMS BAR.  A 3 level Bar with 360 degree views from the roof terrace.  Meanwhile downstairs is a full-on party with a fancy dress box and the crazy owner Lambis.

COLOSSUS BAR. Small but popular bar, especially since the change of DJ.

60S BAR. Moved from it's original home to the old Luna Bar but currently closed - watch this space!

SOCRATES. The owner Socrates is well known in Lindos and you'll often see him at the small beach during the day. The music here isn't the chart stuff you'll here in most of the bars and tends to be more rock - in fact Socrates is one of the people behind the 'Rhodes Rock' festival.

Turn left at Yannis and you'll come to the next few bars -

ANTIKA. Currently undergoing a refurb and due to re-open soon a restaurant and bar - watch this space!

MANOLIS - ZOUK BAR. Manolis has been in Lindos for many years though they moved to this spot a few years back. The bar still has an old olive press in the centre that often gets used for a bit of impromptu podium dancing! 

PAL'S. One of the tiniest bars in Lindos but always busy so you'll often find customers spilling out onto the street.

COURTYARD (past Kalypso). Great Lindian decor with a dancefloor and DJ. As well as the inside main bar there's a courtyard and bar/roof terrace upstairs. Greek Night with live Bouzouki greek music and dancing every Sunday.

Other bars you'll come across in the village are ATMOSPHERE, LINDIAN HOUSE, 404, MUSEUM BAR and IKON.

SPORTS BARS

Many bars now seem to offer big screen football and major sporting events but there are two main sports bars in Lindos.

GIORGOS (opposite Ambrosia restaurant). This is the first major sports bar in Lindos, they have a big screen and TVs allover, there's even one in the floor! Giorgos (and Giorgos 2 on the smal beach) offers a vast choice of beers very much catering to the british market.

RED ROSE (across from Manolis Bar). This bar has a alot of outside seating on the front terrace with big screen.

 

NIGHTCLUBS

There are 3 nightclubs in Lindos though the ones in the centre are soundproofed and are unobtrusive if that's not your thing.

GLOW CLUB (opposite Courtyard Bar). Newly refurbished for 2010 season. Lively club with special guest dj's and drink promotions for early arrivals. Open from Greek Easter through til the end of season.

ARCHES (small road opposite Yannis Bar). One of the most popular clubs in Lindos, you'll find Arches busy even in low season as it's popular with locals.

AMPHITHEATRE (free taxis from the main square, it's up on a hill above the village). Smart open air club with great views as it's on what many call 'ooh aah corner'. A huge space, it takes some filling but has a great atmosphere peak season.
