Chania has a buzzing nightlife scene, even though the seaside town is not famous for bars and clubbing. After dark, the beach clubs and portside taverns light up the night with traditional Cretan music, jazz, and modern pop or DJ tunes that echo in the night. While there are many great suggestions for spending your evenings in Old Chania, the following clubs are a good start for the first-time visitor.
