Footloose Karaoke and Sports Bar, Ayia Napa

Footloose Karaoke & Sports Bar, Ayia Napa, Established 1993

Bar Street Starts Here!
It’s on the corner of the entrance to Bar street, and btw, it’s one of the oldest bars in Napa!  Hosts Andreas and Karina, are completely ‘down to earth’ and absolutely love their pub and have continued it’s 30 year tradition by being one of the only bars that stay open all year.  Joining the crew recently Kevin of Three Lions Pub fame is bringing the pub grub menu to another level.  Naturally it’s a favourite with locals and long stay workers and of course they look after everyone that wants to join them, tbh, it’s one big happy family here, and quite unique!

Family atmosphere
Outside it looks really cool, signs, posters, photos, blackboards and big feet everywhere!  A little terrace to the side, where you can sit and watch the world go by.  Whilst inside, it’s deceivingly bigger than it looks, with DJ box, and a dance floor, for when we can dance.  The decor, traditionally British pub style, with dark wood, comfy chairs and benches.  I just love the crazy table tops, lots of things on the pillars, walls and ceilings, it always a family atmosphere oh, and with the occasional bigfoot here and there …

Loads Happening
There’s always something happening here with karaoke pretty much every night, live bands, resident DJ’s and an MC’s hosting the night.  There’s a summer pool league, played on two brand new Supreme Pool Tables, delicious food with big portions oh and free WiFi and for all you Hubba Bubba lovers, something to share with your friends with an ice cool choice of flavours.

Winter Season
To keep you entertained during those minimal 😉 winter months, they have Darts League, Pool League and the brilliant Salsa Dance lessons and competitions, hosted by Constantinos, the truly talented Choreographer from the awesome Step Up Dance School.  They also host regular Charity Events for all those in need!  And just to make this place even more welcoming, a fireplace to keep you all warm and cosy on those chilly winter nights.

Bar Menu
Andreas and Karina share the bar, serving from a really huge bar menu, so they’ve probably got your favourite drink … 15 different Whiskies, Vodkas, and Gins, including Pink Gin and new, the Lambrini, a delicious fruity Wine.  Naturally, there’s all your favourite cocktails everything from Sex on the Beach to a Long Island Tea to Napa’s fav the Headfucker … trust me it does … hic!

You gotta try their speciality, Footloose Shots, and you really must try the Footloose Cocktail, it’s Vodka, Kiwi, Lime, 7 up and fresh Cream, everything’s green and beware they’re absolutely moreish!  There’s lots of bottled beers, and Ciders, oh and they serve Magners on Draught, and Koppenberg, and delicious Guinness Surger, Draught in a Can, opened, poured and placed on a ‘Surger’ which is a special machine makes it taste just like draught, ha!, even the Irish say; “its feckin’ close”!

Another level
Since my old mate Kevin from Three Lions fame joined the crew the food menu has jumped up another level.  16 years in Cyprus and a butcher by trade Kevin is a natural in the kitchen and boy does he know how to cook a good steak, perfectly grilled to your preference or with one of his speciality home made sauces, my favs the pepper sauce or the Jack Daniels sauce.  On that note all the sauces are now home made by Kev and even the fish is dipped in a gorgeous secret recipe Beer Batter and deep fried ’til golden crisp and served with hand cut chips! … Perfect!

Huge menu
The menu is extensive and so varied, so there’s something to suit everyone’s taste, starting with a full British breakfasts, which you can ‘Jumbo Up’ with a Burger, Chips, Sausage and Bacon.  They also do tasty lunches and pub grub dinners ’til 10 pm, lovely fresh Pasta, delicious Homemade Pizzas, Crispy Salads, Burgers, Wraps, Chilli con carne, fluffy Omelettes, delicious Toasties, and my fav, the BBQ Spare Ribs or the Chicken Fajitas with Salad and a choice of home made sauces! oh and of course this year Kevin added a selection of steaks grilled to your liking and served with your fav home made sauce.

The Meat platter fast becoming a favourite, a skewer of Pork Souvlaki, Chicken Souvlaki Belly pork and a Shish Kebab with Tzatziki and Pitta mmm! They also serve a delicious Chicken and Cheese Platter which includes 8 strips of Chicken and Mozzarella Sticks, 4 Chicken and 4 Cheese Pops all made using Yiayia’s secret recipe! Another of my faves is the Beef Shish Kebab, 3 skewers of succulent beef served with chips, salad, pitta and Tzatziki, mmm absolutely delish!

Daily Specials
You’ll always find daily specials up on the blackboards … and every day you’ll find a good roast, beef, pork or chicken or a mix of the three, served with all the trimmings.  The Steak & Ale Pie is to die for and even the Bangers & Mash are a must every now and then 😉
