Corfu nightlife, restaurants and events.

Corfu is an extremely cosmopolitan island and one of the best features is its nightlife and entertainment. Corfu nightlife venues can be found all over the island, although most of them are concentrated in Corfu Town, Greece, so if you stay in hotels in Corfu Town you will be in the heart of the islands entertainment.

The most popular meeting place is the Spianada Square, which is next to Liston Promenade, the best place for a cup of coffee, light snacks or a glass of ouzo while "people-watching". Throughout Corfu Town there is an abundance of clubs and bars, particularly along the coastal road. There is a large number of live music halls, clubs and bars not only in Corfu Town, but also in the settlements of Paleokastritsa, Messonghi, Benitses, Sidari, Dassia, Gouvia, and Glyfada.

If you are looking for a place to eat, you will not be disappointed. Corfu restaurants and tavernas are practically on every street, in every town and village, while many Corfu hotels have restaurants that serve delicious local dishes, as well. Your best bet would be to check out where the locals are eating and find yourself a table.

We recommend trying the local dishes, including sofrito (beef strips with a white garlic and wine sauce), pastitsada (cock or beef in red sauce), bourdetto (fish in a red spicy sauce), savoro (fish in a white vinegar, garlic and spices sauce), country - made sausages and salami. For dessert you can have sweets, such as mandolato (sweet clusters made of sesame, almonds, honey, sugar and rosewater) and mandoles (roasted and caramelized almond clusters), and finish off the meal with a glass of liqueur made with the kumquat.

If you come to Corfu in Easter, you are in for a treat. It is not just a religious holiday, but a cultural event due to the simultaneous celebration of the believers of both Orthodox and Catholic faiths. On Good Friday, the reenactment of the burial of Christ (called Epitafios) takes place, with the faithful carrying candles and following the funeral bier in the streets of Corfu Town. The Corfu Philharmonic Orchestra and various choirs participate in this entourage. On the morning of Holy Saturday, people throw pots from their balconies and windows.

On the night of Holy Saturday the Catholic Church first holds service, which finishes before the Greek Orthodox service and the Resurrection of Christ, which takes place on Spianada Square, in the center of Corfu Town. At midnight, the bells chime and the celebration heats up, with orchestral music, singing and fireworks, as well as lots of eating and drinking! On Easter Sunday morning, the icon of the Resurrection is paraded through the town streets.

Corfu Greece is well-known for its litanies, which are held in honor of the patron saints of the Corfu churches. The most pre-eminent litany takes place on Holy Saturday, to honor Agios Spyridon, who is the patron saint of Corfu. Other Corfu litanies include Agios Spyridon's Litany on August 11th and the Litany of Agia Theodora on Orthodox Sunday the Litany on Vaion Sunday, and the Protokyriako Litany (held on the last Sunday of November).

Carnival is also an exciting time in Corfu due to the island's unique celebration of the event. The Corfu Carnival pays tribute to Ancient Greek paganistic worship of the Olympian god Dionysos, as well as the Venetian carnival spirit, which makes it one of the most special carnivals in Greece.

A great many fairs and festivals take place in the villages of Corfu Greece. Most Corfu festivals and events are lively celebrations with traditional music and dancing and delicious food and wine. Depending on when you come and where you stay, you should enquire about the Corfu festivals and attend at least one to get a "taste" of the traditional life of the Corfiots.
