We bumped into this bar after having a few drinks in another bar. We were looking for some shots and we randomly spotted on it. A few people left at 03:30 but great rock atmosphere. I believe you can either start your hangout from there...More

It's alright. It's a rocky bar. A tad cheesy around the edges but loads better than anything else down there on the waterfront.

A small but perfect waterhole with great rock music in all genres! The drink list is quite good! Works with kids as well.

A nice place to sit and cool down with a really nice mojito and listen to great classic rock music. They didn't want to play Roky Erickson though. But it's still the best place to hang out in. Cheers!

Title says it all really, great selection of beers and spirits, brilliant music and friendly staff. Its not for everyone but then not everyone is into rock music and good beers. Second visit in 2 days, well worth it.

dear alcoholic customer next time you want to get wasted 10 o'clock in the morning in Crete try a kiosk or a super market because bars are not open.
