Just back from a week in Malia, Crete and a bunch of us were blown away by a tiny little rock-bar called The Cavern which we frequented most nights from 11pm onwards. It’s the only bar in the area that plays rock music, delivered by a cute Romanian girl named Gabriella (Gabby) on her twin CD decks while she dispenses drinks to customers and speaks to you in an accent which is perfect for the ‘Bar of Dracula’. The room is no bigger than a bat-cave and resembles one too. Very dimly lit, with any kind of drink you want on offer, including Black Sambuka which Greek owner George introduced to us while setting a gob-full of it alight. Gabby plays by request as well as having an excellent taste in music herself so we got plenty of rock, punk, goth, Doors, Bowie, 70’s etc. Me and my mate Brian overdid it one night with Brian falling off his barstool at 3am and George lending us 10 euros to get the taxi home at 4am. Class place. It’s just far enough away from all the scooter/quad-bike madness near the beach so check it out if you find yourself in this neck of the woods of Kreta! … Lenny
