Mykonos used to be THE Gay European resort on the 60's but nowadays
it's more mixed (especially since Easy Jet now fly there). It's still more low-key than other island resorts
such as Ibiza and Gran Canaria and therefore attracts a more mature
crowd - although not in the peak season in August. The paths through the streets are uneven and there are few taxis so those with mobility problems may find it difficult.
+30-289/23-071 Kastro Bar (beside the Paraportiani church)
Quiet venue filled with classical music, comfortable couches and chairs,
with a friendly staff and a 30-60 year-old clientele. If one is worrying
about eating dinner alone, the bar is an easy place to find dinner
companions. Perfect for watching sunset.

Very friendly bar that starts a little earlier than most in Mykonos (10pm). Dimitri and Gilles know their business. The interior is like the set of La Cage Au Folles and the music is superb without being too loud - a great mixture of classic pop, show tunes and interesting covers.

Montparnasse, located in the area of Mykonos known as Little Venice,
originally opened as an art gallery in the late 1960's. Later it became
a bar, attracting patrons with classical music and wonderful views
of the sunsets. In 1995, Montparnasse took on a new face -- that of
a Cabaret/Piano Bar. Merging with the already well-established Piano
Bar, Montparnasse still hosts a wonderful sunset cocktail hour and
houses the art work of local artists Luis Orozco and Dorlies Shapitz.
However, in the later evening, Montparnasse/The Piano Bar features
live cabaret-style music 7 nights a week during the summer season.
Vocal and musical talents from across Europe and the United States
are featured at various times throughout the summer.
Mixed ages but attracts some mature men.
The far right end (facing the sea) is a the gay section and but it also has the most uncomfortable beach chairs - better to walk over the path at the back. You can get to the beach by bus but a car or scooter is more convenient.
