Thessaloniki may be the co-capital of Greece but it is the capital of entertainment and nightlife. In Thessaloniki, nightlife gets a new meaning and nights remain unforgettable. Just like all big cities, Thessaloniki offers many different possibilities for evening entertainment for even the most demanding travellers; from traditional to modern Greek music, and from jazz to rock and soul and any other kind of music. Thessaloniki's people, even more than Athenians, are night-loving people; even dinner seldom begins before nine or ten at night and most restaurants and taverns are open at least until 1am. Night life, meaning clubs and “bouzoukia” (clubs with live music where famous Greek artists sing), starts usually at 11:30pm and it lasts until the small hours of the next day.

In Ladadika, Aretsou, Nea Krini and Mylos areas you can find, apart from ouzeri, restaurants and taverns, bars and night clubs. Near the Airport, nightlife takes a more traditional and Greek character with clubs with live Greek music and bouzoukis. In the city centre there are many cafes and bars as well as nightclub piano bars. Drinks cost from 7 to 10€ while a bottle of whiskey or vodka (spirits in general) from 100 to 190€. Wine is cheaper as it costs from 80 to 100€ per bottle per 2 persons. Many clubs and bars usually have an entrance fee of about 15€ in which the first drink is included.

For the gambling lovers, the Regency Thessaloniki Casino is situated at 12th km Thessaloniki International Airport, about an hour by car away. Apart from the casino itself, it has a terrace with a breath-taking view, full cafeteria, bar and restaurant.

In the summer time, in fact all Thessaloniki's best bars and clubs shut down. However many of them reopen “summer” branches along the road leading east along the coast, about 1,5km before the airport.
