On the western part of the island, Galleraki is easily accessible from Mykonos Town and is just a 5-minute stroll through the city’s distinctive white and blue, winding alleys from the Mykonos harbor and the old port.
It is also right in the middle of Little Venice, a dream-like romantic neighborhood in Mykonos, with white houses that stand out from their little colorful details in the windows and doors, which open up just to reveal the houses’ proximity to the waters of the Aegean sea and the sound of the waves hitting their foundations. It is a place that provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience of architecture that combines the simplicity of the Myconian features with the romantic vibe of Italian Venice.

More specifically, the menu features a selection of juices and drinks that are prepared with attention to every detail by professional and highly skilled mixologists-bartenders using fresh and locally sourced fruits. Every visitor can choose a blend of rum, vodka, gin, or tequila that will appease and mesmerize its taste buds among the many juices and cocktail possibilities. In addition to the standard drinks served in every bar, Galleraki offers guests the chance to try the inventive and well-known signature cocktail “katerinaki” or to push their own creative boundaries by asking the bartenders to create some custom special drinks based on their preferences.
