In the evening, Sifnos "is on its best togs” and “gets ready” to cover all tastes. Taverns with special local dishes, fish taverns with fresh fish and seafood, restaurants, taverns specialized in varieties of small dishes, cafeterias and traditional cafes, patisseries and sweetshops stay open until late at night to serve all visitors. And for the night owls, there are bars, night clubs with Greek and foreign music in almost all the villages of Sifnos.

The protagonist of the island’s nightlife is the famous “Steno” (=alley) of Apollonia, which “guarantees” your entertainment until the small hours of the morning!
