Port Olympic

Port Olympic Nightlife Tips

This is a perfect part of town if you want to stay up late and have a lot of fun in this wonderful city. It is better to be here especially during the summer, as bars such as CDLC, Shoko and Bestial are crowded with people due to the beautiful beach terraces. People spend their time there before they decide to move into the actual club and enjoy the music up until 3 am.

If you want to wait for the morning in a club, then you should definitely visit Opium, Pacha or Catwalk as they are open until 6 am. If you want to experience something truly unique, head over to the Ice Bar, where even the glasses are made of ice.
