About
Swing Thing Cocktail Espresso Bar since 2014 insists on operating as an authentic bar for bar patrons, but also as an ideal all-day place for the strollers of the city center. At Arcolontos 13th Street, next to Theotokopoulos Park & ​​vertically at August 25th Street, on one of the most famous pedestrians in Heraklion, we serve you daily delicious coffee, snacks & beverages. Swing Thing’s nights shine at exquisite musical choices, theme guest & parties, but also for the best classical and signature cocktails in the city. After all, it don’t mean a thing, if you ain’t visit Swing!

Fabulous cocktails. We had pre dinner drinks and they were perfect. The little bar has a great atmosphere and very knowledgeable staff, had a great conversation about gin, definitely worth trying the Greek gin on offer. The cocktails ranged from classics like a Nagroni, to new creations, such as the Greek Rose. Have a couple to get a flavour of the Mediterranean.

Hailing from the Caribbean and living in London, we both know a thing or two about good cocktails. We stumbled upon this cozy spot in a lively area in the center of Heraklion. It didn't disappoint. I had the best version of a whisky sour in my entire life (the ginger lemon mix was magical). The pina coladas had a local touch with Greek yogurt infused in the recipe. Delicious drinks, great spot to people watch and right opposite a popular dessert place. We even returned on Sunday night but sadly they were closed. Highly recommended.

Stopped by here after an evening meal. The bar is lovely and the staff really friendly. Deffo worth a visit and they can make pretty much any drink you like.

Only stopped for a drink as it was late but having gone past it during the day is was very popular then too

Very friendly and helpful. Although it was quiet while we were there, probably the only two there, the mixologist was very helpful especially since neither of us were big cocktail drinkers.

Thank you very much for your review! Our bartender is one of the experts in the island of Crete, in the art of cocktails and mixtures. It is always our pleasure to convince even the non cocktail drinkers to have a great signature cocktail, or even two!
