This place is down to earth, small, cosy, friendly, it traditionally British and totally blue !
The setting is as good as on the beach, it's a traditional village house with alcoves and arches edging the shaded patio out front, overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean sea. The ambience is relaxed outside and continues inside, with comfy lounge style sofas and 4 huge TV screens to watch all the live sports, there's a pool room with plenty of seating and two lovely open fires to keep your toes warm in the winter.
I met Nick and Bill back in 1994 when they first opened down on Dhekelia Road near the bases .. Times were different then in Cyprus, the gay movement a little taboo ... Moving to the airport road in 2005, by now it was more of a Freedom Club than a Gay Club, which means anyone and everyone can go, as long as you're a little open minded, and they do, so much so this is one big anything goes party every weekend !
... from the intro to the end, the girls put on an funny and spectacularly electric show with such passion and sooo much energy !!!
Deceiving from outside, it's a 100 year old house converted into an amazing busy restaurant with ten rooms on three floors, of an awesome eating out experience ! I love the really cool covered garden area with a smaller uncovered area for smokers. Inside there are two more floors which separate off into bars, lounges and little cubby holes, each with at least one TV screen and there's even a separate Pool and Games Room.
Still one of the oldest, most classic and much loved pubs in Larnaca after over 25 years ... it's Cypriot Rock hospitality all the way. With music ranging from Classic Rock, and Jazz to Rhythm and Blues and even a little reggae ...
... some with a cultural twist, tbh these days, at Sirena Bay, you should expect the unexpected !
The result is a vintage cafe style wine bar, full of colour and design that suits the area of old town Larnaca, somewhere to chill by day and party by night, with tasty snacks and spontaneous gigs, live music, Resident DJ Yiannis and top name guests like DJ Nicos Vavaresos sharing the decks, Acoustic nights, oh and Cuban or Latin nights, that get a tad busy, hmm its been known for them to run out of Corona and like, 20 bottles of Rum in one night !!!
Absolutely everyone is welcome, and there's a cool mix of locals, ex pats and visitors from every thinkable country, something to do with the ambience, probably 😉 oh and of all ages coz they make awesome Smoothies here too! In fact, Andreas and the crew are impeccable hosts, always with a smile and on the menu 20 Hot Coffees by Hausbrandt of Italy, Cappuccino for me, perfect ... most of them can be served chilled too.
Its a real cocktail bar, with fully trained Bartenders, with exemplary mixology skills, then add an excellent music mix, influenced by Alex's eclectic taste for Funky Jazz and pure House beats, all in a delightful Mediterranean ambience, and highly recommended !
