With everyone looking for great outdoor spots to enjoy a drink this summer, heading to a beachside restaurant or bar is the obvious choice. But it’s not the only place where you can indulge in fine al fresco evenings under the stars with a cocktail in hand. And if you love spending time out in the rugged and beautiful Troodos mountains, a countryside newbie – the Corner Mill Cafe and Bar – gives you good reason to clink those glasses and say cheers while you delight in the splendours of nature.

 

 

Located right beside the well-known Mylos restaurant in the popular mountain village of Kakopetria, this new establishment invites customers to relax under the shade of leafy trees by the twinkle of outdoor string lights, right beside the gurgling Klarios river. Open on Friday evenings and all-day Saturday and Sunday, take a seat and dig into tasty street food (the burgers are a huge hit) while professional bartenders get creative with a variety of refreshing concoctions. DJ music adds to the magical feel amid the greenery. Want to stay the night in the area to avoid the drive back home? The adjacent Mill Hotel is a great place to unwind; the epitome of rustic charm overlooking the beautiful old centre of the village.
