Poll 2024: Cavo Paradiso
Cavo Paradiso

Location: Mykonos Island, Greece  

Capacity: 3,000  

Mykonos is known for many things, from its paradisal beaches to its luxury hotels, but one of the most unique enclaves on the island is Cavo Paradiso. The club blends the beauty of Mykonos’ landscape with electronic sounds, hosting the finest names in dance music since 1993. Peggy Gou, David Morales, Steve Aoki, and many more have graced the near-mystical space in the last 12 months alone. Nestled in a 100-foot cliff overlooking the crystalline waters of the Aegean, Cavo Paradiso lives up to its name. With an open-air dancefloor and Funktion-One sound system, everything about it feels pristine. Headed up by Stathis Lazarides, Coolis Kalopetris and Lorenzo Papachrisanthou, Cavo Paradiso is in capable and considerate hands. “The scene would not survive if it was just festivals,” Lazarides told DJ Mag in an interview this year. “Clubs are incredibly important, everything started from the clubs. So places like Cavo remaining healthy is really important, for the scene as a whole.”
