Partying in Ios: The drinking “custom” with shots, slaps and fire extinguishers

Ios slap

Ios has acquired the reputation of the “student” island in recent years. Most groups turn to either Ios or Paros for their holidays.

Although the second island has retained its partly cosmopolitan character, Ios has turned into a highly student-oriented destination .

It may not have the reputation of Laganas, Malia and similar Greek regions, but it also has plenty of foreign tourists who indulge in extreme alcohol consumption.

In recent days, a video from a bar in Ios has gone viral on TikTok where a tourist drinks a shot and then the bar employee – after putting paint on her hands – slaps him.

@mickeyanne13 No it didn’t hurt… as you can see on my face 😆 #slapshot #greece #slap #shot #money #santorini #ithink? ♬ Shots – LMFAO

This is one of the “customs” of Ios with many shops now having a clear direction towards it. That is, it is their “attraction” and they advertise “packages” with which someone can drink a shot and then get hit.

Of course, it’s not just the slaps. There are bars in Ios where you can choose what you want to be hit with after consuming alcohol. Hammers, signs, boards, cages, even… fire extinguishers are enlisted by the shops. Of course, customers wear a helmet before being hit.

Things are often not that simple. There are also various “challenges”.

Either the customer takes the ‘7 shots challenge’ and drinks seven shots directly, winning a shirt, or buys the ‘slap shot challenge’, in which after drinking a shot, they are then slapped pretty hard by the barmaid, who is behind a so-called “slap window”.

It is worth noting that most tourists, foreign or not, present this specific activity as something of a “must do” if someone travels to Ios, while there are many videos circulating on social media of travelers enjoying the wood after shots.
