Jazz & Blues (Naxos Town)

Jazz & Blues caters to a mature audience, putting on regular live music performances in the evenings. Offers seating in an intimate, dimly-lit outdoor area. A selection of drinks is served (wines, beers, cocktails and spirits). Prices tend to be lower than in most waterfront bars.

Bars & Nightlife

Nightlife in Naxos is relatively low-key, with only a handful of dance venues in operation. Most establishments are concentrated in and around the island's Hora and along the "Paralia" (waterfront), with a couple bars present in the majority of larger Naxian coastal settlements. The most popular format for whiling away an evening is savouring a drink at one of the many bars with a view — whether up on the Kastro or down by the water. The island also hosts two cultural festivals: the Naxos Festival (runs from the middle of July till September) and Domus Cultural Festival (from June to October), both featuring concerts, film screenings, and various art projects.
