The Grand Slam is a family run British style boozer, it's even on the corner, on the sunny side of the road, and once known as The Corner Pin, inside it looks busy, with quirky little designs mostly mums doing, I just love the Table Tops they're well cool ... There's music memorabilia all over the place with a professional light and sound system, a well stocked bar, with a lovely front terrace onto Kapparis Avenue ... it's a great stop off for an afternoon drink, good pub grub, and there's something happening here almost every night!
... it's an absolutely wonderful find, just off Kapparis Avenue, just over 200 metres to the beach, in one of my favourite areas in Cyprus, with a massive veranda, so you can relax overlooking the sea that’s about 200 metres away ...
... But tbh, The Square Bar is probably better known for the entertainment and live music played here every night from 8.30 pm 'til late. That's mostly down to Peter and Rob, of the legendary 'Live Lounge' Cardiff fame, who partnered up with Panicos in 2014 to bring you the very best in live bands, duo's and solo artists ... Check out their Reviews, oh and, go early to avoid disappointment, coz following all health and safety protocols this place gets really busy!
I watched Lucas and Stavros build the bar, converting it into an open fronted beach hut on the shores of a Jungle, it's basic, wooden, natural, no frills and spills, I love the rope swings for seats, brilliant!, and more than a hint of their obvious love of animals. But it's not just a bar, it's a meeting place, somewhere to chat about whats on in Napa, somewhere to pick up tickets to the biggest clubs, events and pool parties and boat trips, some free and with their compliments oh, and of course enjoy a drink or two while you're there ...
... I love the tall beer barrel tables and stools, and inside, its all wood, a cozy atmosphere, it's intimate, cool chandeliers, music posters, comfy seating and rock stuff all over the place ... excellent service, oh and a really cool ambiance that's created by lots of like-minded, live music, rock, blues and occasionally jazz freaks, of all ages and nationalities ...
The bar is open from 9 am to 2 am, so you can pop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, gorgeous coffees in the afternoon with a naughty slice of cake, maybe a romantic dinner for two, or just evening drinks and a catch up with friends, whichever you choose, this is an awesome place to go. They provide a great menu from their hearty breakfasts to amazing platters or grilled main meals to amazing homemade desserts.
Every night it's like a new play ;) where Tatiana and the girls get up on the poles, on the bars, on the tables and their sole purpose in life is to make you happy! ... and on that note, if you play pool, Mixalis is starting a pool team to be ready for next season ... The practice could be fun, but don't play the girls at strip pool coz you'll probably lose ;)
It's a pub with British style pub, with an international clientele, an awesome crew, a relaxed ambience, and a great place to eat traditional pub grub with a twist oh, and an awesome place to watch all the live sports ... It's like home from home even if you're on your own! ... What else do you need from a pub? Your favourite tipple, they've probably got it!
I loved this place the moment I saw the name, ... It's a British Style pub, from the outside all white and doors, really cool signage and some comfy seating to enjoy a drink in the late sunny afternoons and watch the world go by, hanging baskets and signs, inside, pristine, all wood and red brick, spacious with comfy seating, over to the right a separate games area, with pool table, and regular Killer Pool and darts board and they are just about to start a team and a Bar Football table ... both Pool and Darts have winter leagues, so go ask if you can join the team or maybe add one?
It's on the entrance to Bar street, and it's one of the oldest bars in Napa. Andreas and Karina, who are completely 'down to earth' absolutely love their pub and have continued it's 30 year tradition by being one of the few bars that stay open all year and naturally it's a favourite with locals and long stay workers and of course they look after anyone that wants to join them , it's sort of one big happy family !
