If the island is splendid by day, it is even more so at night. From June to September the place ‘explodes’ with concerts, theatre and film festivals, folk festivals with music and the gastronomic delights of the island. The events and dates change annually. For more precise information regarding the events, which are often in the open air to exploit the fine weather to the full, contact the Servizio Turistico Regionale N° 11, via Vitt. Emanuele 202 ph. 0909880095.
The key meeting point is the lively and picturesque piazzetta of Marina Corta with its bars where people go to drink and chat until midnight. We recommend the bar-ice cream parlour Il Gabbiano with its constantly updated choice of ice creams.
The Chitarra Bar is now “legendary”. A bar facing the sea with an authentic Aeolian summer atmosphere. Enjoy “Nicola Merlo and friends”. Each night there's a fun coming-and-going of artists performing in a live show and cabaret; Lucio Dalla's a regular guest.
The Marina Pub Sammy, an intriguing fun club below Lipari Castle, is one of the island’s most lively venues. Split on two levels, there are warm exposed stone walls and low wooden beam roofs, a full-length high-class bar, an attractive open lounge. Frequented by various types, all looking to enjoy themselves, happily sip their amazing specially prepared drinks. If you have special needs, just ask the owner Frank, who’ll do everything he can to satisfy you and will advise you on how to continue the evening.
The Sealight dance-floor (Canneto) offers a fantastic setting: the staggering Bay of Unci. Newly opened, at the feet of Monte Rosa, it attracts a young public with booths and a small dance-floor with DJ turntable. The Canneto bay dominates the night. Info: 3335496017
The Turmalin disco sits under the walls of Lipari Castle, just a stone’s throw from Marina Corta. This is where the night owls hang and fun-seekers out. Each night there’s a new surprise: a series of different DJs take it in turn to create different atmospheres. Info: 393 6335849
