The owners are so welcoming and the music is great. It is small but perfectly formed. Be warned about the cocktails, which are lovely but lethal.

Great place, good service. Not to big, not to small. You should go there if you have the change. Close to the "barstreet"!

Visiting Crete every now and then, I find YOLO to be one of the most freshening and welcoming bars on the island. Prices are fair, and Astrid, the owner, makes everyone feel at home. If you're in town you should really give it a try.
