Taverna Tzamaika is a little farther away from the main town. However, the food served there is very appetizing and it is a place that should be visited for dinner.
Palladium is a chic, upscale discotheque that attracts the well-heeled locals as well as tourists. The DJs play hot techno-sounds for patrons to dance away their blues. The dance floor is surprisingly spacious and the snacks served here along with the drinks are scrumptious.
San Nikolas Pista-Go Cart is on the western beach of Kalamata. This go-cart racing track is easy to spot and is a great place to spend your evenings. Next to the track is an unnamed bar in a converted massive ship. This, too, is a fantastic place to visit.
Elite Hotel has a beach front bar that you can sit at and watch the sunset. Sunsets in Kalamata are truly magnificent sights and should not be missed.
