    Firi Firi – The Beer House

    Sample local and imported beers, either inside the custard-coloured villa at the foot of the steps leading up to the Neo Frourio or at the terraced tables beside the neighbouring church; if you find it hard to leave, it grills up some decent dishes, too.

    Antonis Toursas Juice Bar

    Brilliant little juice bar that has boxes of fruit piled up outside like a fruit shop (which it also is). Pick your five a day and get them blended straight up into a juice to enjoy at the small bar.

    NAOK Azur

    Chic, split-level venue across from the Spianada, with an all-day bar on its own little gravel beach, and several higher tiers incorporating a restaurant, a cafe and, after sundown, a fully fledged nightclub.

    Cavalieri Hotel Rooftop Bar

    Rather wonderful rooftop bar that makes an ideal venue for mellow predinner drinks, with stunning views across the Spianada to the Palaio Frourio. There's the hope that you’ll stay for an Italian-flavoured meal, but you don’t have to.

    Mikro Café

    You can smell the coffee beans roasting from 25m down the street, and whether your favoured beverage comes from these beans or is something a little more alcoholic, the Old Town holds no finer spot for drinking and people-watching than the delightful, multilevel, vine-shaded terrace of the convivial 'little cafe'.

    Gabao

    This newly opened cafe stands out from the crowd thanks to the modern art on the walls and the lime-green tables and chairs laid out along the narrow alleyway. It serves light meals and snacks, but for locals it's a place to have a late-afternoon glass of wine.

    Café Bristol

    With its ochre facade, jungle wallpaper, Hieronymus Bosch prints, faintly decrepit benches and countless light bulbs, this century-old hang-out has the laid-back feel of a bohemian Paris cafe. Oh – be careful of the tiger hanging out in the corner!

    Polytechno

    Bar and venue for performance art and experimental music. In-the-know patrons reach it by turning left along the hillside footpath at the top of the steps up from Solomou, below the Neo Frourio.

    54 Dreamy Nights

    Gleaming, bright-white nightspot, west along the New Port, with a minimalist aesthetic, spectacular night shows and a retractable roof. Open-air DJ parties and live gigs by big-name Greek music stars attract up to 3000 clubbers.

    Piccolo Espresso Bar

    Stylish little Piccolo on the attractive town-hall square attracts an arty crowd. Faded hippy cushions are set up as chairs on the wall outside. The soothing, dazzling-white courtyard is also ideal for a late-night drink.

    Kourdisto Portokali

    A cool haven for the Old Town’s retro rockers, on a hilly alleyway just south of the cathedral; the name means 'Clockwork Orange', hence the splendid hanging sign. There’s always a rocking vinyl soundtrack.

    Cult

    Classic metal’n’motorbikes bar, near the New Port, with a hard-rock ambience and booze to match – and, a little incongruously, quieter sea-view tables outside. Also has a good stock of craft ales.

    Conserva

    Very much the social hub of the New Town, this all-day indoor-outdoor cafe, on the corner facing Plateia G Theotoki, serves everything from coffee and milkshakes to beers and nameless Greek spirits.

    Tsipouradiko

    Local students congregate en masse in this simple taverna most evenings, setting the world to rights in its lively courtyard over copious, well-priced drinks; it also sells standard Greek meals.

    Palaio Frourio Café

    Make the most of your paid admission to the Palaio Frourio by lingering over a sunset beer (or winter-morning hot chocolate) in this huge terrace cafe, enjoying sweeping sea views beside the temple-like church. It also serves snacks and salads.

    Imabari Seaside Lounge

    Alle KouKou

    Small, relaxing but pricey bar, in the square just below the cathedral. As well as local beer, wine and spirits it also serves Corfu’s distinctive (and nonalcoholic) version of ginger beer. The bar itself is set up outside, which gives the place a novel feel.

    Aktaion

    All-day, kiosk-style park cafe with a large open-air terrace, on the seaward side of the Spianada, where locals gather for coffee, ice cream or cocktails and gaze up at the fort or down at the bay.
