Skala bar | The place to be for your ouzo milkshake

Many years ago, a special building in the village of Ammoopi stood empty. Several people have fantasized about doing something with the building, but no one took up the adventure. Dutchman Tom dared to do so and opened the Skala bar in 2007. It was the first bar in Amoopi. Now exactly 10 years further, Tom still has his own bar and so it is high time to tell you more about this place!

A beautiful view at Skala bar

Skala bar really does have a beautiful view! The bar is located on the top floor of a beautiful building right between Amoopi and Lakki beach. Especially in the hottest months of July and August, you can cool down here between sunbathing. But also when it is a bit colder, like in May, you can sit here. Amoopi is out of the wind and the part in the wind is shielded.

A really nice detail about the bar is the accessories Tom uses, such as glasses, wine coolers or a holder for skewers. I think it’s a really Dutch thing, those crazy accessories 😉 Don’t forget to check out the painted stones and the paintings made by visitors! So check it out when you’re at his place!

What on the menu of Skala?

At Skala bar, you can enjoy delicious drinks in particular. Besides the regular drinks menu, they also serve milkshakes and cocktails. You can also go there for a snack. Whenever we go, I always order the Ouzo milkshake, haha. It is so good, I can’t get it to taste so good at home. It’s really a popular drink with the visitors. So if you are visiting, you should definitely try this milkshake! By the way, don’t forget to go to Skala at full moon! You will have a great experience and a nice evening 🙂
