ASTRA Bar Mykonos ASTRA Bar Mykonos ASTRA Bar Mykonos
On the highly pedestrian Matoyianni street , ASTRA is the place to visit if you want to taste how the nightlife felt when Mykonos was favorite meeting point of the world΄s rich and famous . Indeed , ASTRA is perhaps the only party institution in modern Mykonos that retains the feeling and the atmosphere of the romantic 60΄s and the glittering 70΄s . Designed and build by Minas , a world renowned artist who himself adores the bright light and simple lines of the Cyclades islands , ASTRA strikes you with its red bougainvilleas growing against white than whiter walls , the Aegean -blue painted shutters , the simple yet elegant interior and the ceiling resembles which resembles the celestial dome of an Observatory .
Every night , Babis , the proprietor and the man behind all this , stands on the entrance balcony , warmly welcoming a variety of guests , ranging from the international jet-set to dance-loving teenagers .
Babis burst on to the island΄s lively night scene when he decided to open his own bar Vengera in 1975, followed by the legendary Ibiza bar in 1978. These were soon adopted by the island΄s international party crowd and became -must go- hangouts .
In the mid 80΄s , Babis decided that was time for something new . With the help of his friend Minas , he started working on the ASTRA project , opting , despite the prevailing trend towards mega discos and the quantity over quality , for a smaller centrally located building, where he could offer quality entertainment in a more intimate environment .
ASTRA BAR opened in July 1987 and soon proved him right .
Even if you are disenchanted by the nightclubbing scene , you can not help be impressed by the beautiful building standing in symmetry with the neighboring Church and the small square in front of it . Old fashioned as it may sound for a modern club , the buildings walls as well as the square΄s pavement are whitewashed every Monday and Friday afternoon in the traditional manner .
Since the summer of 2003 , Babis has teamed up with Omiros , a very familiar face to the Mykonos regulars . Omiros was himself the resident DJ of the ASTRA club from 1995 to 2001 . He made an impact on the Athens night scene with -FREEYOUBASE- down town club and in Mykonos with - SEABASE- club , where he organized live concerts and special events featuring some of the worlds leading DJs.
A must in the Mykonos nightlife, Astra bar still attracts those people who like to party into the hours , as well as those who simply wants to see and to be seen.
