Successful brand Boutique Uptown has moved to the seaside in Paphos for the summer. Further down the road from last year’s summer venture, this year two separate venues are fulfilling customers’ needs. Both are well placed for beach lovers and for those who want to enjoy a lounge bar and club night open air experience.
Open in the evenings from 10pm, Boutique Seaside Lounge Bar is attracting the well heeled 20-30 somethings who want to make the most of an outdoor nightlife experience. Stylish and well thought out, this is what customers have come to expect from the Boutique brand.
“We have changed everything at this venue and refurbished it to our own style, this was important to us,” one of the owners, Nicolas Liasides says.
The lounge bar is decked out in white and shades of green to highlight the feeling of summer and a well-placed bar, tables and chairs, as well as sofas are packed out night after night with crowds out for an evening of fun.
Prices are reasonable and cocktails are a specialty.
“Our cocktails are delicious and made with fresh fruits, the best sellers so far this summer are mojitos and strawberry margaritas,” says Liasides.
Open six nights a week from 10pm-3am (Tuesday to Sunday) music is mainstream Greek and international hits. Popular with locals is Boutique Greek night, on other nights different local DJs take to the decks to spin their own blend of music genres.
“We have all styles of music and we have many different events coming for the rest of the summer.”
The venue is fashionable yet comfortable and the staff is friendly and fast to serve. Situated opposite Yeroskipou beach in Paphos, there is plenty of parking available close by.
You can start your day at Boutique by the beach as the entrepreneurs have use of the beach opposite the night time venue, which opens at 10am and closes at 7pm. The stretch of sandy beach has been cleaned and is well maintained by Boutique and sun beds and umbrellas are free to customers. The beach bar serves all kinds of drinks, including a selection coffees, as well as tasty snacks – a club sandwich will set you back €6.
The two venues will be operational until September when Boutique Uptown will reopen.
