Night Life in Corfu Town

Corfu has 18 radio stations, 3 cable TV stations and 3 movie theaters in Corfu Town. The Meteikasma, Orpheus, and Pallas all show foreign language films in the original language.

The Famous Disco Strip is 2 km west of the new port on National Resistance Street or Ethniki Antistaseos St. at the exit to Kondokali on the coastal road.

There are many bars and Discos and such International favorites as the Hard Rock Cafe.

The Coco for techno music, Sax for techno-rave-trance, and the popular Ippodromo, Appocalypsi (Italain hang out), and Embargo Discos at the far end of the strip. In both directions, north and south of Corfu Town entertainment venues are to be found with both Greek and foreign music, some even have both. Noise yes, charm no!

Most charge a nominal admission fee, which also includes a drink.

For a more civilized experience wander the town or head to the Esplande and the Liston where a better heeled clientele does its thing untill very early in the morning. For less expensive venues visit the back streets off the Square. There are many charming out of the way places to rest. You will have no trouble finding action to suit your moods.
