Kitron Cafe Naxos (Naxos Town)

The waterside establishment with a view specializes in "kitron" - a citrus-derived drink produced at a nearby distillery (Valindras in Halki). Guests are invited to sample multiple varieties of the island's signature drink and other citrus-based products crafted there, such as candy.

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.
