“Perfect Bar, Perfect Venue, Perfect People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

From the moment your feet step on the bright yellow stairs of Astra Bar you are greeted with the bright and bubbly door staff. There infectious personalities instantly triggers off the light globe above your head saying "its gonna be a great night"
On the party island of Ios you expect that its just gonna be another messy bar, but you are wrong. Take it as you will, you can start your night inside at a table with the cosy and fun cushions and listen to the fresh & funky house beats, or if your the social butterfly sit out on the stairs and meet and greet the new people as they enter the venue.
With each and every perfect & ORIGINAL cocktail that the AMAZING bar staff create for you your night takes off as does the music by DJ Branca.
Every night i was in Ios, i would start my night at Astra and there is no doubt about it that Astra bar, is by far the BEST bar in Ios!
Get there and become party of the family that is Astra.

“The best place on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Astra Cocktail Bar has been almost like a home for me when I have visited Ios for the last seven summers. The staff is wonderful and the music is great :) Everyone loves Astra! If you´re ever visiting Ios i would highly recommend everyone to pay astra a visit. The cocktails are just amazing, and the green destiny is the best one. Jani and Sinead are the owners of this cocktail bar, and it is thanks to them that this bar is the most popular one on the island. Ios is a fantastic island that I really love, but it´s a lot thanks to Astra. We all love it. You only need two seconds at the bar before you´ll understand exactly what I´m talking about.

Thanks!

“Perfect Bar, great music and amazing owners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

I worked at this bar for a few weeks and would recommend it to anyone! It's has an awesome vibe, tasty cocktails and top music. The owners have gone to (and still do) a lot of effort to make this little bar as swanky and nice as possible. If your on Ios island, you have to go here!

“Friendliest bunch on the island”

Nothing but fun and friendly faces here. Sinead and the gang make fresh cocktails while Jani mans the decks. Ingredients for a great way to start any night.

“incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I absolutely love astra bar! Literally one of my favorite bars on the island :) the best place to start (and end) your night on the island. Some may find the walk way up the stairs intimidating, HOWEVER do not be fooled as you will be greeted by the warmest welcome you have ever experienced!
There are no words to describe the cocktails they have available. All are made with fresh fruit, right before your eyes and all taste beautiful. The music played is also amazing, creating a fun and eventful atmosphere (the staff too play a huge role in this!)
To sum it up, your night is not fulfilled untill you have visited this bar <3
