Manolis bar

Hi there,

I used to live in Lindos in 1991 and worked in Manolis Bar. I was just wondering if anybody Knows if it is still there and if not what happened to Manolis and his family, I remember his nephew also Manolis his son Stephanis and his other nephew Vasilis.

I am returning this year after 20 years and would love to see them all

first went to lindos in 1991 with 5 mates and have been back either on my own or with mates about 10 times now. allways having a wonderful time.

That first time at manolis bar dancing to "losing my religion" on the high bar stools a memory, it was my birthday and it has stuck in my mind , as well as sleeping on a car bonnet coming back from the disco at bottom of the hill!

Always great people , great dj's , great weather , great food.

Billy from billys bar never seems to age or his wife , although a few things have been lost, THE TREE BAR , Piles of Drachma on the bar for the next Beer , Jody's Flat etc , cant wait to visit again happy Hols !

Definiely visit Manolis/Zouk bar. Returned to Lindos in September.

Got "told off" for walking past the bar and not visiting it in June year so in order to teach them a lesson, I visited every night, when I was there, in September. That taught them - LOL.

Still a great bar, excellent music, danced till my knees ached, brilliant host.

2012 here I come.

For any newbies ... remember if someone says meet you in Manolis' ,,, ask which one.

Although it's called the Kolossos Bar, most people also call that bar Manolis' for short ... after the owner.

Some old timers also still call Zouk Bar ... Manolis'

Confused? You soon will be ... cue Billy Crystal and Soap.

I got into trouble one year as I forgot this and told my better half to get me in Manolis' ... we both thought we'd been stood up lol

She wasn't happy as I had the keys, but luckily enough she remembered my other haunts lol

We are thinking of returning to Lindos in 2013, just doing a bit of research at mo & Manolis bar was where we spent every evening of our honeymoon in May 1991. Remember dancing to I've been thinking about you ( London Beat) & also singing at the top of our voices to Deliah (Tom Jones). Glad to hear that Manolis is still part of the furniture in Lindos. Looking forward to maybe making more memories.

Manollis bar closed many years ago . It is now a restaurant. But he moved further down about 80 yards or so. It is down a little alleyway opposite the red rose bar. It is now called zeok dancing bar. Manollis still does sunbeds on main beach and also you find him in a shop by the old pallis travel shop. Which is now a gift shop.
