The peak of the night is definitely stopping by the always welcoming and ever so fun bar owned by our dear friends, Jani and Sinead. This is the place to be if you are looking for a great way to start the night by enjoying lovely cocktails and a great atmosphere. Or if you are simply looking for a spectacular... More

As far as I know Astra is latin for 'to the stars' you know your in heaven when you go to Astra...which should definitely be your first stop in Ios. The heady mix of fresh fruit cocktails always served with a smile is holiday in a glass. Friendly owners Sinead and Jani have put their own touch on this bar,... More

Really enjoyed this little bar, great music, really funky interesting decor all keeping with the theme of 'Astra'. Drinks were ok, but cheap so not complaining too much.

I remember the first time i visited Ios and wasnt sure what to expect as it just looked like a little hill with shops and little Greek houses. When the sun went down i realised very quickly what the remote Greek Island was all about. The hill came to life with restaurants, bars and clubs. One bar that stood out... More

Hi All, Way back in 2003 I lived in IOS for 3 months. Working, playing and enjoying the island for everything it had. I met the most amazing people, some for a day, some for a week, and some who I still know and love to this day. The one constant in those days was ASTRA... It was a meeting... More

This is a cosy bar in Ios town center. I discovered it by chance and after just one evening there, it became my favorite spot in Ios! When I saw the fresh sliced watermelon behind the bar, I knew they would do great cocktails - and they are epic, I had several! I got chatting to Sinead (the lovely lady... More

Me and my friends have been to Ios the last four years, and one of the main reasons to why we keep coming back is Astra Cocktail Bar. It is the first bar we visit every night, and we always feel welcome here. The drinks are probably the best in the world, and my favorite is the Green Destiny. The... More
