15. Volkan on the Rocks – Firostefani

Great brewpub with amazing views and an outdoor cinema after sunset.

16. White Door Theatro – Fira

Best show in Fira, Santorini.
Not a bar, but an incredibly fun evening show about a Greek family wedding. There’s singing, dancing, and a simple storyline. Guests are made to feel part of the wedding party. There are delicious snacks (I call it dinner but some might want a bit more afterward) and lots of wine. Incredibly fun. Finishes about 10:30pm so makes a perfect starter for a night out. Do reserve tickets in advance.
