Santorini nightlife tends to centre on Fira, but those in the know head to Hassapiko bar in Oia for after-hours drinking. Also called Marikey (after the owner), it’s a favourite haunt of local shop and restaurant staff, who gather here around midnight to unwind after their evening shifts. Occupying a former butcher’s shop
(hassapi means butcher in Greek), it has a traditional white interior, with a marble-top bar and the meat hooks still visible. Expect subtle lighting, lively music from DJs, excellent mojitos and an everything-goes crowd. It stays open late – don’t be surprised if the sun is rising as you leave.
