Paphos Bar Street

paphos bar street

While Paphos Bar Street may not have the same bustling nightlife as Ayia Napa or other European cities, it’s still a good option for those seeking a night out.

This quaint strip was the place to be back in the 80s and 90s. However, things have changed a lot since then.

Here’s what you need to know.

What Is the Main Bar Street in Paphos?

The main Bar Street in Paphos (officially known as Ayiou Antoniouoften Street), is located in Kato Paphos, right near the harbour.

Often referred to simply as “Bar Street,” this area features a mix of bars, clubs, and restaurants, attracting both tourists and locals.

Keep in mind that many businesses on Bar St. only operate during the summer season, and that some bars and clubs don’t open until quite late.

But, again, don’t set your expectations too high.

What Happened To Paphos Bar Street?

The truth is, Paphos Bar Street has seen better days.

The decrease in tourist numbers and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have caused several popular bars and clubs to close, leaving the street deserted.

That being said, with things looking up in the city and tourism on the rise, hopefully, Paphos Bar Street will soon be back to its lively self.

If you’re seeking an alternative, consider checking out Kennedy Square in the Old Town.

This recently renovated area offers plenty of dining and drinking options, as well as a winter nightclub.
