A Guide to the Bars and Nightlife in Cyprus
The nightlife in Cyprus comes in many different forms. It can be as energetic and passionate as you've ever seen, yet if you're looking for a softer subtle nightlife scene, Cyprus has that too. It all depends on which part of Cyprus you are at. From world class nightclubs to themed bars, candlelit restaurants and relaxing lounges, Cyprus is all about variety.

If you're a clubber at heart, then Ayia Napa on the east coast of Cyprus is just for you. Known as a clubbers paradise, at least two dozen nightclubs are found along this beautiful town, along with some good bars, pubs and cafes. Take your picks from clubs like Club Ice, a club famous for its R&B and garage music, Castle, a huge club with three indoor rooms and even one outside or head for Insomnia, a bar that rings true to its name, as when clubs are winding down at 4am, Insomnia is just opening, playing music till the sun rises. For a funkier bar-type, try out The Bedrock Inn, with a theme of... you guessed it, the Flintstones with a colossal type Fred Flintstone effigy towering over the entrance of this bar which hosts karaoke ever summer evening.

If you're looking for a more toned down and less crowded version of Aiya Napa, Limassol is just for you. Before Aiya Napa took the party capital crown, Limassol was it with its exciting nightlife scene, but don't get me wrong though, Limassol can offer you just a good as a time as Ayia Napa. Check out The Basement, Limassol's prime party hangout, with dozens of clubs, pubs and cabarets dishing out mainstream pop and rock. If you are up for it, head for Privilege, this huge venue is out of the main tourist area but is worth the cost to get there, dishing up European and Greek chart hits with a number of dancing spaces.

For the more friendly and relaxed atmosphere, head to Paphos, a town which is considered to be more family-oriented then the rest with a less rowdy feel. Many fine restaurants and tavernas can be found here, with a selection of live bands to suit your taste. If you are in the mood for a beer, head to The Robin Hood, a cheerful kitsch pub with a medieval castle-style theme which has a range of choices of cold beers on tap. Other clubs include The Gallery, offering R&B and garage music, Red Cube Club ( Good for anyone who's a night owl as their doors don't even open till midnight), S-Cape and Rainbow, a club with a musical menu which might actually be able to rival that of Ayia Napa or even Ibiza.
