Pregame the Party
If you live and breathe for a good boys’ night out, you’ll know that pre-gaming is one of the most essential parts of a successful clubbing excursion. To prepare yourself for the highlight of the night, stop by Bliss Bar and take some selfies as you knock back a drink with your mates. At this family-owned venue, you can take your pick from the many delicious cocktail options, which you’ll enjoy while listening to the bar’s notoriously trendy music. If your experience at Bliss Bar doesn’t get you in the party mood, nothing will!
Chillin’ at the Clubs
Now that you and your mates are feeling the cocktail buzz, you’re ready to raise the roof at Kardamena’s coolest clubs. Get psyched, let your inhibitions go, and show off your sweet dance moves at these three clubs:
Status Club: If you’re down to raaaaage (!), be sure to check out Status, which is one of Kardamena’s biggest, best, and booziest clubs. The upbeat atmosphere of this party haven is simply contagious, and its top-notch DJs and infamous glow parties will really start your club crawl off on a crazy foot.
Starlight Club: This club is just about as hip as it gets. Famous for its crackin’ RnB and electro tunes (among many other genres), you’ll want to move and groove as if there’s no tomorrow. In summer, Starlight Club also hosts foam, paint, geek, water, and popcorn parties, which will make your clubbing experience trendier than you ever imagined.
The Club Zone: When you’re ready to finish off the night, The Club Zone is the best place to chill out, or – if you’re still in a party mood – to keep getting down to the music. Whether you want to watch sports on the nightclub’s large TVs, bawl a song on the karaoke machine, or sip some drinks in the cosy lounge, you’ll find exactly what you need to finish off an epic night.
Handling the Hangover
Let’s be honest: the morning after a night of clubbing shenanigans is always a bit rough. To cure your inevitable sleep deprivation and hangover, nourish yourself with a full English breakfast at the Banana Beach Bar, and you’ll be back up and running in no time. In addition to great food for a great price, this bar is situated right on the beach, so you’ll also have a stunning view to enjoy while savouring your meal.
How to Get to Kardamena
Getting to Kardamena is not only simple, but also pretty cheap. With airlines such as Ryanair, you’ll reach Kos Airport (KGS) in a little less than four hours, which leaves you just enough time to catch up with your mates, or binge watch your favourite soaps.
Since you’ll want to get in a party mood as quickly as possible, don’t waste time in airport queues or by waiting for unreliable public transportation to take you to your accommodation. Instead, make your life easier by booking a shared, direct, and inexpensive transfer with Shuttle Direct, which will send a reliable and friendly driver to meet you at the airport. By taking advantage of this option, you’ll ensure that your boys’ holiday in Kardamena starts off just right.

Andavis Hotel: This hotel is an all-time favourite among tourists who want to experience Kardamena’s bars and clubs while saving a buck or two. With its proximity to the town centre (which is a mere 450 yards away!) and its nightlife, it’ll take you no time at all to hit the clubs. All rooms include bathrooms, showers, and a balcony, and there’s even an outside pool across the street!
