Nightlife spots in Athens

1. The Psiri District
The local bars and cafes are the indisputable protagonists in the Psiri district. Labeled by many as the Soho of Greece, Psiri never rests. From the morning until late in the evening you can see young people passing by looking for either a coffee place to hang out or a taverna to enjoy a nice Greek meal. The peak time in this district occurs on Sunday afternoon when local taverns play traditional Greek music to accompany your meal. This festive atmosphere can last until late in the evening. Psiri is ideal for anyone who wants to experience a casual and traditional night out.

2. The Kolonaki District
Nightlife in Athens can be multi-dimensional. The options are limitless and you are bound to locate the optimal choice for you. If you happen to be a fan of a sophisticated and elegant nightlife, then Kolonaki is the most suitable choice for you. There is a wide variety of cafe bars where you can either enjoy a late afternoon coffee or an early/late evening drink. Meanwhile, Greek delicacies can parade through your table.

3. The Downtown Athens District
With the help of your local guide you can explore the nightlife in downtown Athens. The concept of traveler's advisor has no meaning in this case. Your local guide will show you the hidden nightlife gems through Athen's alleys. You can enjoy a refreshing cocktail with some background jazz tunes.

Phil Theodore

Vintage Fiat 500 Athens Tour

My wife and I only had a few days in Athens so we chose Theodore to show us around in his antique Fiat 500 car! He was kind enough to even drive to our hotel to pick us up as our hotel was in Pireaus, not Athens. We gladly paid a little extra for the pickup which is understandable as Pireaus is a bit of a drive from the Athens tour meet up point. Theodore has a super fun personality and was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Theodore took us to some amazing places thru the city and some that overlooked the Parthenon.. with great views of the city. And doing it all in his Fiat 500 made the tour even more enjoyable!! After viewing the various sights as the sun went down, we enjoyed some snacks and drinks at a quaint restaurant, then Theodore drive us all the way back to our hotel, showing us some more of the sights of Athens along the way! Needless to say, We had a great time, and learned a lot! Thank you to Theodore! Don't hesitate to book a tour with him! He is awesome!

A customized trip with Phevos

Great tour by Phevos. We truly enjoyed the city walk, Phevos did a great job keeping the group well informed and challenged with greek mythology fun facts. Great tips also about the city, Acropolis as we finished our tour at the Acropolis entrance. Recommend to anyone interested on a very good Athens city walk with a greek mythology spin!
