How do you pay the entrance fee in Cyprus,in a bouzoukia nightclub?I heard that in Greece you do it by buying an expensive wine bottle or paying cheaper ticket and stay on the cheaper bar side.Also,i think it's possible to take children to bouzoukia with you?I'm going Lemesos on next winter and i love greek and cypriot music. :)

It depends on the venue and if there is some guest singer or not. Many have free entrance and you pay for the drinks, while others have a ticket that might include some drinks in the price. You can usually take children with you and that shouldn't be a problem.

what a shite thing !!!

out of curiosity, I went out with a group of friends to one of them Greek clubs that have a singer and almost slut like singers (females) it was an utter waste of a weekend !! we paid 160 euros for each 2 persons ( one bottle of small size vodka) + the cheap shit they bring to the table mainly cheap cheese, cucumber and still bread and god knows how old them sliced apples were !


you know you only set on a table cant even talk cause the sounds too loud and bloody hell it is boring, the only action was a drunk 16 or may be 18 years old by making a fool out of him self touching girls asses !


i hope that would help but a word of wisdom go to any English clubs with 50 euros and you will get as much alcohol as you like, best attitude (not stuck up) and defo best laugh and freedom to dance on good tunes not ding ding ding dingaa ding music, gosh dont know how Cypriots manage to go to them places ..

P.s a man`s hell is another man`s heaven but i thought i will gve an honest review and god bless

Overpriced drinks. Hooker's with STDs. Stinky smoke-filled rooms. Russian mafia.

No thanks, I'll pass.

Only ever been to one of these bouzoukia places in CY. Some years ago in Larnaca, very, very near Agios Lazaros. Probably closed down now.

Food was pretty average but a great time was had by all with loadsa music and dancing and people throwing bundles of paper napkins all over the place.

Loads to drink as well... gosh! Went on in to the early hours.

Very enjoyable night.

Aint my thing baby.

A virtually deceased art form, non progressive piece of Greek culture that has never taken off beyond Hellenic shores... of which 'cultural' TV channels like EPT desperately try and promote through hours upon hours of boring, unstimulating rehashed hits from a bygone era.
I dunno what these 'culture' experts are trying to achieve by keeping Greek society in a state of limbo.

Playing bouzouki is like wearing a fustanella in public.
They both belong in a museum.

what are you talking about mate? with respect, none of that is really true if you are refering to people's tastes.

Where I live, 4 new bouzoukia just opened up. Kids aroudn the ages 18-25 pack these places out every weekend. I am in that age group and I live in Londonm, this culture is certainly not dead.

And why would you make fun of bouzouki? :shock:

This is our culture.....all modern Greek laika music has its basis in rembetika. This is music with DEEP MEANING, the themes are love, pain, rejection, joy, RAW emotions nothing else. A typical GREEK music.

That music is a hell of a lot better than the westernised American crap we hear all the time now. Songs about sex and money, what a load of crap. Greek and Cypriot society has lost its roots and been corrupted for years by that crap, I am sorry to say. Give me bouzouki and rembetika any day.
