Nestled through an arched doorway that leads to an all-white courtyard, Enigma has made its home in Santorini's Fira since 1979. From June through August visitors arrive to the super-stylish nightspot for DJ dance parties that start around midnight and boom their way through dawn. The dance club is divided between three separate rooms including a super-cozy main bar under a tight barrel-roof ceiling with freestanding bar and flirty scene of under-40 singles. The centerpiece of the interior space is the DJ podium surrounded by an all-white Cycladic decor of VIP banquettes, stone-encrusted walls and tile floors.
Through a more intimate seating area for privy to two-handed cocktails and conversation that doesn't require yelling, an outdoor courtyard features an additional tiki-style bar with illuminated palm trees surrounded in low-lying bamboo chairs and banquettes reserved for bigger spenders and celebrities during August high-season. The entire club is infused with a mix of electronic dance beats and occasional remixed hip-hop track that keeps the dance mood flowing as well as the bottles of Rose and occasional Ouzo shot.
Keep in mind that most Santorini dance clubs are only open on weekends from June through July before opening nightly for all of August.
Santorini's top nightspot lures an upscale crowd of island singles and runaway wedding guests to dance away their summer nights from June through August.
