This is the live gig venue of Savino Rock Bar, one of the oldest and most famous bars in Cyprus … btw, they’re just as famous for their hospitality as they are their live rock gigs, so this place gets rammed for every event! … boasting an awesome tribute for just about the biggest band in rock these days when the brilliant Guns & Roses Experience are back to play live next July 2022 … OMG !!!!
I’ve known owners Mariann and Christos and Events Manager Yiannis and of course the gorgeous Drew for years, making an awesome team, running the place impeccably. Most people go to the pub for a drink first. The décor is loads of wood, shelves, bottles, posters, nick-knacks, artefacts, photos and rock memorabilia everywhere. It’s cosy and buzzy, with a family atmosphere, like-minded people of all ages and there’s a really cool, spacious, partly covered, traditional beer garden out back.
Pretty much every Friday and definitely every Saturday, and the day before a bank holiday they host live Rock gigs with big-name international bands, boasting the very best local Greek and English Rock Bands. They even squeeze in a little Rhythm and Blues, Indie, Folk, and the occasional Reggae and Disco night too, I’ve even caught them doing The Candy up on stage … and these days they’ve added Stand Up Comedy aimed at the local market.
Situated on Finikoudes, aka the promenade, in the hub of Cyprus, you can take a walk along the sand before you slip up the alley and stop for an afternoon coffee or a few drinks, in their Savino Rock Bar across the ally and maybe grab something to eat before you catch a live band … here’s a quick link to their Videos on Facebook
With Classic Rock at heart, this places oozes originality, friendly atmosphere, a very, very well-stocked bar that’s bound to have your favourite drink and it’s all authentic spirits, imported beers and ciders and there’s a banging sound and light system, an awesome crew with a passion for hospitality, an on-site photographer that’ll put you on Facebook, and the list just goes on.
Over the Carnival, Easter, Christmas and various other seasonal holidays there’s an even bigger line-up of live bands and top DJ’s, as if we need an excuse to party at Savino!
check out their Youtube Channel for loads of vids from their events over the years …
Even if you’re only a little bit into Rock, this is a must visit!
