Sifnos Bars & Nightlife
Botzi is a lively, lovely spot to park yourself on hot afternoons, retreating to the bougainvillea-strewn terrace for a small glass of cold white wine. Or come for dinner, when Botzi becomes Sifnos’s center of gravity from midnight until the wee hours of the morning. Inside you’ll find a warren of rooms kept cool with stone floors and walls, illuminated with candles, and scattered with colored stools and benches, which are moved out of the way once the impromptu dance parties get going. The music skews toward funk and electric, and the drinks are expertly made and–don’t say we didn’t warn you—very strong.
A pair of emerald-green double doors is the second indication that you’ve arrived at Drakakis café. The first is the line snaking around outdoor tables heaving with locals and visitors alike on this narrow street. While waiting, you can’t help but read the menu scrawled on a chalkboard tacked to the wall outside. Traditional dishes, like honey chicken and chickpea stews, are on every table, but really there is nothing more satisfying than stopping in for a glass of tsipouro and a salad of thick-cut ruby-red island tomatoes with wedges of salty feta and a good glug of local olive oil.
