Snug bar with a dance floor at the rear. Ruut is an amiable and professional barkeeper. Enjoy reasonably priced beer, or better taste his lekker cocktails. International LGB-crowd of any age, yet straightfriendly I guess.

Magnificent place, cool bartender and very good drinks. Absolutely the first place at the town of Hersonissos. There are not very crowded hours before midnight when you can seat at the bar with good music and nice conversations, and after midnight more dense action comes.

Thanks don't know what to say, was a great evening.

The owners are so welcoming and the music is great. It is small but perfectly formed. Be warned about the cocktails, which are lovely but lethal.

Hoi Stefano, yolo blijft in iedergeval open tot 21 oktober, daarna is onzeker omdat het aantal toeristen snel afneemt. Na 27 oktober is yolo zeker gesloten tot april volgend jaar.
