I have been to this Bar for the last 14 days. I have made many friends. This bar is always there with something good when you enter. Lots of happy people. Liz and Andy is helpful and always there with a big smile on their faces. Its easy to make friends. The music suites almost everyone. To be honest. I cant find anything that drags this place down. If you don`t enjoy this bar, then you don`t enjoy life

This place is rubbish. We expected to find a lively place full of tourists of all ages and nationalties but nearly every time we went past it was empty. The layout of the place doesn't invite mingling, quiet couples sit down alongside the wall staring into space. The music is only to the owners' liking and they don't show any interest in new customers, prices are just as high as the more quality fun bars on the promenade..such as Oxygen or Ethnic bar. Perhaps they could change it into one of those cream tea places because it's wasted as a bar.

I'd heard about Groove Bar on here before I went so I'd written it down on my list to find and wasn't disappointed. It's as far away from a Greek bar you can get but the Scouse couple that run it make you feel so welcome and it becomes so familiar that even though you're in Greece, you feel at home in this bar! (in a good way!). It turend out to be just along the road from our apartments - it's on a road going up from the beachfront, from Internet Corner. The drinks selection is good - real brands - and you get raost spuds at half time when a football match on (!!) but the main thing is just the atmosphere - even when it's quiet it's not. The decor is fantastic - really unique and quirky and the main reason why after a traditional Greek meal and some drinks in the Greek bars etc it is great to finish the night in Groove and listen to some top tunes!
The couple who run it are also really helpful if you need to know anything else about the island - from bus times to wedding planning! We were very sad to leave Kamari, Santorini and not go back in here until next year...

What can I say...... there are a lot of bars to choose from in Kamari but the Groove Bar was my absolute favourite. The scouse owners 'Andy & Liz' were fantastic, genuine nice people, nice bar with pool table, live english football, live music, Kareoke and you can buy a very large beer for 3 Euros' .

There was 33 of us on holiday for my wedding and we went there most nights. Andy had us all wearing wigs the night before my weddng and we ended up staying there til 3am, (it was supposed to be a quiet night) we were on the dancefloor doing 'oops up side your head'.

We liked Andy that much that my family booked him to be our DJ at our wedding reception in Pyrgos. What a night I will never forget he was brilliant, he felt like he was a part of the family.

A lot of great memories we will never forget from the Groove Bar.
