The Team and How It Came To Be
Moni was founded by a diverse group of people who are at the forefront of their respective fields in the entertainment and nightclub industry. Many of the team members behind Moni have been visiting the island for over 25 years and have spent decades immersing themselves in the Mykonos lifestyle so that one day they could build their own hub that encapsulates the Mykonos culture. These fashion industry, music, and entertainment experts have grouped together to create a nightclub where seasoned regulars and first-time visitors can feel safe and at home amidst the white-stone walls of Moni.
As for the nightclubs name, ‘Moni’ is Greek for ‘alone’ and the name was inspired by the neighbouring church ‘Agia Moni’ which is the only stand alone church on the island of Mykonos, the other 800+ were built in pairs which makes Agia Moni more than unique.
The club also has a catchy and meaningful slogan, “More Than Family” which is a nod to the churches history. The story goes that back in the day, both father and son would set off on an intrepid adventure out at sea. Back home, their loved ones would build a pair of churches in their name to protect their honour. This notion of family being integral to life is threaded through the club’s identity and offers a sweet nod to Mykonos’ rich history and cultural values.
Step inside, and you’re instantly transported to an underground world of lavish luxury as you’re met with minimalistic chill out areas and spacious white bars serving a wide array of alcoholic concoctions from classy cocktails to the finest champagne. The vibe here is more like a family gathering, and the sense of homeliness is rife and in keeping with Moni’s motto and family values. International artists travel far and wide to grace the Moni stage and present the best experiences for all the guests. As for the music, expect to be listening to an eclectic mix of international house tracks and new remixes – it’s these modern beats that draw the beautiful 20-somethings into Moni and keeps them dancing all night long. Whether you’re fancying a quiet nightcap, a social drink before heading home, or you’d like to party late into the night under the stars, Moni welcomes all.
