As one of the most cosmopolitan of all of the Greek Islands, you can expect Corfu nightlife to be vibrant, raucous and lively. With many popular resorts all around the island, there are a plenitude of bars and clubs to enjoy. However, if you’re after something a little different, look no further. We’ve tried and tested many of the establishments, and put together a list of our favourite trendy bars Corfu.
We’ve been to Why bar and We love it
Why Bar is situated in Corfu town itself and makes for a great place to visit after checking out one of the many restaurants in the city. When it comes to Why Cocktail Industry, it really does tick every box. As the name suggests, their specialities are their amazing selection of cocktails that they have on offer. The attention to detail and knowledge of the staff make for a truly memorable experience. Paired with the quirky décor and great music, you’re guaranteed to enjoy your visit here.
SWAY Bar + Kitchen : Coup de coeur for the decoration
Located in the heart of Corfu Town, Sway Bar & Kitchen Corfu should really be top of your list for places not to be missed. With floor to ceiling industrial style shelfing, displaying every alcohol imaginable, the décor is both modern and tasteful. The additional outdoor seating makes it a great place to sit back and watch the hustle and bustle of the city. The bartenders are very knowledgeable mixologists, and the cocktail selection is wonderful. We recommend that you don’t stop with just drinks, and also check out the food menu. This establishment is popular on the vegan food app Happy Cow, yet caters for diets across the board. We suggest you try the classic cheese burger, as it really is exceptional.

Piedra Del Mar : As fancy as the name sounds
Piedra Del Mar is located in Barbati, a beautiful village of the east coast of Corfu. The area boasts stunning views, across the Ionian sea, of the Albanian coastline. This establishment operates according to their philosophy: “It takes three”. This beach bar is developed on three levels. Firstly there are the sun loungers on the beach, where you can sit back and sip a cocktail, just a stone’s throw away from the shore. The second level is the lounger bar, boasting comfortable yet stylish seating areas, the perfect place for you and some friends to enjoy some drinks. Finally, the third level is the Piedra Del Mar Restaurant, serving delicious food with a fine dining approach. The business has been running for more the 15 years, which is testament to its continued popularity. You’d be foolish not to check it out.

Imabari Corfu : Beach please
Of all of our recommendations, it has to be said that Imbari Corfu is the most picturesque. Located on Faliraki Beach, this bar looks out over the Ionian Sea. This is the only spot in the Corfu Town that has access to the beach, making it a great place to enjoy the mixture between the cosmopolitan feel of the city and a tropical atmosphere. Due to the bar’s procimity to the sea, while away the day swimming in the crystal clear waters and sipping on one of the delicious cocktails they have on offer. We recommend the Summer Chica, for a little kick thanks to the chilli syrup. Stay long after sunset, as Imabari doesn’t close its doors until 2am.
