“The most chilled bar from coast to coast”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

When travelling solo on business it can be hard to find a place welcoming individuals (especially in tourist areas), but on a recent trip to Chania I was lucky enough to find the Avalon right in the heart of the Venetian Harbour. Excellent music (so long as you like rock), and a very relaxed atmosphere to unwind, enjoy an unhurried drink (huge selection of beers if you're a connoiseur or just want to try something new), and meet both locals and other travellers. What really makes this place is the friendly welcome and efficient service of owner Lefteris' great staff; a big thank you to Apostolis, Mila and Tea for the pleasure of your company last week.

Having previously lived in Greece, and having returned on business and leisure over many years since, I would highly recommend that you try out Avalon for a taste of unpretentious and genuine Greek hospitality.

Avalon, is the last and also the best rock and metal bar in Crete. If you like rock and metal music, you have just go to chania. Inside you will find 32 beers, 1 litre beer, and also in good prices. Avalon doesn't close!! It is open 7 days per week and always awesome!

“Best place for a cold beer”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

In the beautiful old harbor of Chania there is a nice place called Avalon.You can enjoy an excellent view of the harbor both during the day and night!Furthermore there is a wide variety of cold beers and drinks for you to choose from and quite good prices as well!There is also a very nice decoration and plenty of chairs and room for anyone to enjoy a drink both outdoors and indoors.
Most importantly this place is for lovers of metal and rock music.The owner always plays the best of rock and metal and of course all different types of this music so that everybody enjoys his time there.Surely there is no better place for you to visit if you like rock or metal music
P.S Everybody is willing to serve you and everyone working there is very polite.Support the last metal bar in Crete

“A must-visit place”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Avalon has all the ingredients you need to have a great time.Cold beer and drinks, amazing people, and only the best rock and metal music on the land. It is the last metal bar in Crete and Lefteris, the fellow who runs it and plays music, keeps the metal banners as high as they get. If you ever go for a walk at the old harbor in Chania, I urge you to visit this amazing bar.
