Dancing the Night Away at Amica LoungeLocated in Messenia's village of Gialova, Amica Lounge is where you should go for a fun night out—the venue stays open until 5 a.m. each day. The focus is on craft cocktails, providing thoughtful mixology over quick bartending. Opt for one of their premium malt whiskeys or rare vodkas to enhance your drink experience.
Regular and guest DJs spin a mix of energetic tunes, from electronic to Latin to hip hop and beyond. Each week Amica Lounge hosts themed parties, for example, "House Your Soul Mondays" focusing on heart-pumping house beats, or "Kitsch Night" where you can hear the "best bad music" around.
Despite being a trendy nightclub, the atmosphere is surprisingly unpretentious, with locals just out to have a good time and staff working to create an upbeat atmosphere. The space—created by Greek interior designer Lampros Zervakos—is minimalist yet sophisticated with bare walls, simple vintage chandeliers, and flatscreen televisions. In terms of the exterior, cobblestone columns, terracotta roofing, and billowing palms set the scene. Outdoor seating is available for those who want to drink under the stars and hear the waves from Navarino Bay.
