“ "Hasapiko" aka "Marykay's" An iconic and beauitful bar, the one and only bar in Oia! Located right by the archway as you enter into the village. There is always a good blend of locals and tourists, and some nights it can get very busy! Great tunes, good vibes, the perfect place to have a drink, meet people and dance!”
