The Zante Strip is where you’ll be spending your nights on holiday until the sunrise. It’ll be like your second home and before you know it you’ll know exactly where the shops are, where your favourite pre-drinks bar is and which club you plan to end up in.
Although the whole road is 3KM long, the Zante nightlife is within a 1KM strip towards the bottom of the road that leads up from the beach. This means it only takes about 10 minutes to walk from one end of the Zante Strip to the other. This is the main strip in Laganas but the mini-strip road that connects and leads off to the right shown in the map below, Kalamaki Road, is a great place to start a bar crawl or pre-drinks.
Where Is The Zante Strip?
The Zante strip is located in the resort of Laganas which is in the South of the Greek island and where you’ll be wanting to stay. It’s just a 15 minute taxi drive away from the airport which only costs approximately €20.
If you arrive late at night, you’ll see the lights from the strip as your plane comes in to land…you can’t miss it! Not to be confused with the airport strip, you’ll still be wanting to take a taxi or transfer bus from the airport to the Zante nightlife. The walk just from the the very top of the road to the beach is 30 minutes and much longer during the day as the heat will wear you down!

The Zante Strip By Day
The Zante Strip by day is a very different scene to when it comes alive at night. Providing you’re not recovering from last night’s antics, go-karting, mini-golf and escape rooms are just some daytime activities you can take advantage of with our Zante Mega Discount Wristband.
If you are still hanging, then chilled days never go amiss in Zante. With the best rated beaches in the world, you’re not going to be stuck in your hotel room waiting for the night’s event. Laganas beach is literally at the bottom of the strip, about a 10 minute walk from Kalamaki Road. If you don’t fancy spending money on a sunbed down the beach, you can always head to Pure Beach Club or Mansion Pool which are free entry providing there isn’t an event running.
If you really are that hungover and feel you can’t leave the hotel, perhaps chilling by the hotel pool will be the best option. Top up your tan and soak up that Greek sun! On the flip-side, you could carry on the party and head to daytime drinking venue like Malibooz or Life’s A Beach!
Restaurants On The Zante Strip
Restaurants on the Zante Strip are vast and vary in cuisine. Whether you want a full mixed-grill or just the standard €1 pizza slices from BJs, Laganas has something for everyone. Craving a kebab after a night out? Don’t worry, The Zante strip has you covered! Ask for gyros (pronounced “gih-ross”) and you’re sorted! Fancy something a little less guilty?

The Zante Strip By Night
The Laganas Strip by night is what you came to Zante for. Expect incredibly lively nightlife, drinks deals throughout the evening and an all-round lit atmosphere. You’re best off starting on Kalamaki Road (the mini-strip in Laganas) and making your way down to the beach. Kalamaki Road is mostly bars and restaurants with main strip leading towards the clubs.
If you want to impress your mates with that champagne lifestyle or Instagram pic whilst you’re on holiday, you don’t have to look far.

The Zante Strip is littered with bars from the beach up. With everything from Karaoke at Lush Bar, to the dentist chair at Indie Bar, there’s no chance you’re going to get bored! More of a competitive drinker than a singer? Get the beer pong started at Cheeky Tikis…just don’t lose because it’s 11 spirit headfucker that’s used not beer!
If you’re looking for a more premium vibe, then Barcode and G-Spot are not to go amiss. Get yourself a premium cocktail like the Barcode Special and worry about the hangover in the morning.
With the Party Hard Travel Discount Wristband working in almost every bar on the main strip, be sure to limit the pre-drinks in the hotel room. You might end up spending more had you’ve just got your Fishbowls on the strip!

Clubs On The Zante Strip
Clubs in Zante are not hard to miss. They are mostly all grouped together towards the middle and bottom of the strip with huge LED lights, smoke machines, CO2 cannons and even a bubble machine at Cherry Bay – not to be confused with the two foam cannons at Zeros Club!
Rumours say you can actually see the Laganas strip from space because of the vast amount of bars and clubs that the Zante nightlife has to offer! You’ll be able to see the smoke and lights from Cocktails and Dreams club from the very top of the strip just under 3KM away…easily!
There’s a quite a mix of clubs in Zante, so if one music genre isn’t for you, you don’t have to go far! Expect R&B at Waikiki, old school bangers and cheese at Cocktails & Dreams and Cherry Bay, summer anthems and chart at Rescue and Zeros, and a mix at Sizzle and Plus Club. However, if there’s a live act playing then do expect a different atmosphere from when you were covered in paint or foam from the night before!
Zante Events Packages through Party Hard Travel make sure you’re not stuck in the same club for the entirety of your holiday. Only the biggest and best acts and parties are booked and included in the Ultimate Events Package. With this in mind, our favourite three clubs in Zante are:

Zante is packed full of hotels near the strip. Although there aren’t any party hotels as such, there are hotels catered towards a lively atmosphere. These hotels are something to look for to ensure you’re not drinking at the poolside bar with people three times your age!
You’ll be charged a Tourist Tax when checking in. This amount is dependent on the star rating of the hotel, the number of nights you are staying and the number of rooms booked. The amount is not typically more than 5 euros per night. It’s also very normal in party resorts for hotels to charge a returnable room deposit. These room deposits are typically €50 euros per person and returned to you after your stay (providing you haven’t had the paint party in your room!). You’ll get these deposits back after the hotel staff give your room a check over when you check-out so don’t go too hard the night before – give yourself plenty of time to check-out and get to the airport.
More than likely, there will be a damages list in your room. You don’t want to blow your spending money on any new furniture so treat the place with respect. After all, this is going to be your home for the week.
