Scorpio Bar
(Bars in Kalamaki)
10/10 Jo F

We've just arrived home from our holiday in Kalamaki and Yiannis, Dennis and Spiros at the Scorpio pool and bar made our holiday. We were staying at a hotel just up the road but preferred to have breakfast and swim in the pool here because of the welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The pool is also great for swimming (this may seem like a daft comment but many swimming pools on holiday are too shallow or cater more for children so are not "shaped" for swimming - if you like a proper swim and not just a dip, the Scorpio has a great pool). There were lots of return visitors but it wasn't at all "clicky" - it was our first time in Kalamaki but we felt like we'd known everyone for years. All three brothers work really hard - serving good quality breakfasts and bar food as well as soft drinks and alcohol. They also love to banter. We would love to go back to see Yiannis, Dennis and Spiros again and are missing them already. Thank you for your hospitality and humour (and the shots!) "Yamas" Jo & Stu

Hi Yiannis, Denny, Spiros and Papa!

 
The Scorpian is an excellent bar with all sport action, The bar men here are friendly and will help you out with anything! Every year we visit this bar, mainly due to the Ice Cold Mythos and the wonderful view of Mount scopos. Also the people make this bar excellent with their personality!
 
Well Done once again to the Scoripon, See you all next year for the newspapers  and "Avrio Sizmos!"

Hiya everyone
 
This is my first visit to this site, I have been going to Kalamaki for 7 years, just cant keep away.
 
I was first introduced the famous trio as the "Mitchell Brothers" by our holiday rep.  I love them all to bits, hate to have to go home after 2 weeks, they are so funny, tormentative and welcoming.
 
One year I remember, my daughter came down to the pool with the hangover from hell, she sat with me while I ate breakfast staring into space, of course Yiannis took this opportunity to torment, he fastened a long piece of string to an enormous black rubber spider and dangled it through the window in front of her face...... she screamed blue murder, Yiannis howled with laughter....she wasnt allowed to forget it, every day Yiannis got the spider out onto the bar and started to laugh all over again.
 
I am going again this year after a 3 year gap, hope they remember me, cant wait to see them again

YAMMAS!!!!!!! This bar is ace and is well worth a visit!!!!! Yiannis, Yanisi, Spiro, Papa you are all crazy. I love this bar as it is the best place to chill with an ice cool drink ans to watch the world go by. It is also a great place to learn so Greek here!!!   Yiannis and tolis love the Shots here followed by a nice kool class of Lowenbrau, and they allways leave here  as it is rude not to as the prices are very good. See you all next year and it is very hard to say goodbye to you all  but we will be there next year to learn more Greek!!!!

would just like to start with a big HELLO to , ian and caz, caz and ian, trudi and steve, me old girl and me pa, sister and her new husband, chloe, yannis, dennis, spiros and Pappy...

2nd time to Zante first time to Kalamaki, and let me tell you it was fab, think the alcahol is too cheap though as some of these negative comments below seem to be written by people who obviously had there eyes closed for a fortnight, for gods sake its greece,,,, its clean, laid back, chilled, the people are friendly will do anything for you, family orientated, there not forceful with money, dont know how many times i got told, ahh pay me later pay me later, which i did just to add, I stayed next door to the dionysys and used the scorpion bar facilitys everyday, you are and will be looked after believe you me, everything makes this the ideal place, the people who stay there (ie: the crew), the brothers, pappy, the domestic assistants, and even the reps for once, so I heard anyway, best vacation ever, chilled, layed back good laugh, no trouble no *ob heads, and for 7euros you can go into laganas for a lively  knees up rahhhhh, but be careful what you drink!!!!!

In the coming weeks/months I will have the Official Scorpion bar/dionsis/dennis 1-11 aparements and bar website up and running, any one bean who has any ideas please drop them to my email below, there will be a forum on there 2 so watch this space,

10/10 for first impressions, dionysis the scorpion bar and dennis 1 - 11  ,

hopefully see you there next  year,  x John & Claire    parry.johnparry@gmail.com

click to enlargeWell here we are back home after another brilliant holiday. A big thank you must go to Spiros, Dennis, Yiannis and Pappy who once again made the holiday. Do not listen to the stories about these guys, if you respect them and there property they will treat you like royalty even when they are havinging to deal with other typically yobbish Brits.
 Once again many of the crew were in attendance, Ronnie & Jill, Geof & Jackie, Steve & Jules, Chris & Paul, Steve and Trudie. We were all thinking about our freinds who could not make it this year, Esther & Ted, Jimbo, Anne Marie, Steve & Grace and Ian & Caz (Thinking about you at this time Ian). The crew was also once again extended this year and a big thanks go to (another) Ian & Caz and John & Claire, it was great meeting you and we hope to see you all in subsequent years.
Well we better go book for next year so we have something to look forward to something,
so YYAMMMMAASSSS & SSSSAAAAAAAMMBUUUCCCCAAA TIME to all

This is by far one of the best bars in kalamaki.  The prices are excellent and the service is great. Yiannis, Spiro, Yannisi and Papa are all great! The snack bar food is also excellent and the price is ace!  We have been comming to have a drink at this friendly bar for over nine years and it has allways been a great bar!  You can sit back and watch the world go by while enjoying a large cold glass of mythos (what Yiannis mac and Tolis do) If you late at the bar you can see the moon rise above Skopos, which is a very nice thing to see. But the Lowenbrou  is strong and you can end up or you can get jet laged as yiannis would say!)   if you get on realy well with the boys there they will teach you greek!  I wish that i was there now   

see you next year from kirsty (aged 14)
