Heraklians tend to sit in a café and watch passers by, so if you want to get in to the local mood we recommend Plateia Eleftheria or Fountain square. If you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere you can go to the old harbor. There are countless Bars and Discos that play anything from international rock to Greek pop. Also most 4 star hotels host traditional nights with Greek dancers. Another center of nightlife is Hersonissos (26 km east) which has several clubs and attracts some big name DJs during high season. Malia also located 36 km east of Heraklio has countless Bars and Clubs and it mostly attracts the 18-30 age group which is always ready to party in Heraklio nightlife.
