Let’s be honest: Symi is not a holiday destination that you would pick if you want to go clubbing every night, but there are still plenty of options to eat and drink at late into the evening. Bars and restaurants have licenses that allow them to stay open late, so there is no rush from any local business to close its doors.
The many restaurants on Symi are all happy to serve drinks at the end of a meal as long as diners want to sit and enjoy the lovely evening weather.
