The Best Nightlife Spots In Malia
Malia is all about nightlife. Your days will be filled with glorious sunshine, but where should you spend your evenings? Here are some of the best venues in the resort for clubbing fans to explore.
Forget about the cheesy name; Corkers is Malia's number one nightspot. Located in the heart of the resort's clubbing strip, it's hard to miss with its neon-fringed signage. It's hard to resist as well, with old school R&B and 90s club favourites, as well as contemporary chart bangers. It's the kind of venue that has something for everyone, and seems to bring all clubbers out of their shell.
Expect a heavenly experience at Apollo - a venue that promises club-goers an experience they will "never forget". For once, the hype is justified. Apollo is a smart venue with an urban theme, which makes it unique among Malia's dance floors. Expect playlists packed with grime and hip hop, and old-school versus new-school dance battles. Additionally, the club offers free entry for everyone, making it one of the best value nights out imaginable.
3. Zig Zags
A favourite venue for decades, Zig Zags offers a reliable diet of addictive house beats and classic R&B, which almost always results in a busy dance floor and hundreds of happy patrons. Look for the Friday takeovers, when leading DJs show off their own unique styles (and be sure to book tickets in advance for weekend events during peak season).
If you want to kick off a night in Malia with some expertly mixed cocktails, Babylon is definitely the place to be. Set around a swimming pool and dance floor, this lively bar-club hybrid is tucked away near the beach, but always delivers. The DJs are innovative and slick, mixing up EDM with house, grime, and all kinds of mixes, and the lighting is a real highlight, adding atmosphere to every event. Definitely worth a visit.
5. Cloud 9
One of the best places to chill in between sessions on the resort's most buzzing dance floors, Cloud 9 has a brilliant central location, making it a great hub for nights out on the town. There's an extensive menu of world-famous cocktails, friendly staff to help you choose, comfortable seating, and tunes that should set the tone for unforgettable nights. It is somewhere that every visitor gravitates to at some point, and many visitors find that it's the only Malia venue they need.
