If you fancy a night out under the stars Otto Dieci in Paphos is a good place to try out. Set down a small alley in the heart of the newly renovated Paphos old town, Otto Dieci has become a stalwart of the Paphos nightlife scene.
Opened in 2009, this unique venue combines a beautifully renovated traditional stone building with a modern, sleek interior and contemporary furniture. Coloured lighting adds to the mood and seating is available both inside and out.
Well trained bar staff prepare and operate at high speed, dispensing a substantial number of drinks and cocktails throughout the night, and although they are on the pricey side, they’re well worth it.
Premium cocktails are a hefty €10 and house cocktails are €8. Wine is sold by the glass but a bottle will set you back anything between €20 and €30.
Live DJs and other live music events are regular offerings as are special party nights – 80s and 90s retro nights are a favourite.
Dress tends to be smart casual, but whatever goes, and this is a hugely popular place to meet up with friends, especially during the summer months.
Be warned, it does get busy – so it’s advisable to book a spot – and the crowd tends to be mostly under 40s. However, all sorts of people do frequent here and staff are friendly and the atmosphere buzzing.
Currently open from 9.30pm until 2am on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights, Otto will be open extra evenings (yet to be decided), during the peak months of the summer.
Toilets are situated upstairs and are clean and there are a number of car parks found close by, so it’s not too far to walk in teetering heels.
Regular updates are posted on the bar’s Facebook page, as are photographs of recent events.
If you fancy dipping into the nightlife of Paphos, this venue is a good choice.
