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.

4. The Gazi District
If you are set on experiencing an intense nightlife in Athens, look no more. Gazi is the choice for you. This district is filled with night clubs and music stages. There is a wide selection of entertainment to choose from. You want to listen to modern Greek music or the latest club hits? The Gazi district has it all.

5. The Zografou District
A night out in the Zografou district is rather alternative. The options include a wide array of cafes and bars. You local host can tailor the evening to your needs. Based on your preferences and liking, the host is capable of picking out the ideal place for a fun evening. But, the night is always young! And Athens nightlife never ask your local guide for the best things to do in Athens at night!

Gagan Chris

Full-Day Athens: Private Driver & Guide

Had an awesome experience with Chris! We are frequent travelers and we’re intri by having a long private tour, off the beaten path. Chris was the perfect choice!! He speaks perfect English which made it easier to communicate, ask questions and actually have some discussions about what we were seeing, doing etc. ended with an excellent meal at a local restaurant which was just fabulous. Large restaurant, packed with locals, with great food (lamb, goat!!).
Would look for him again next time we are in Greece!

Emily Vicky

Athens Democracy & Ancient Politician Tour

Really great introduction to democracy in Athens. Vicky was super responsive to my messages and worked to fit around our schedule. It was a really information tour, adapted to what we wanted to hear about (benefits of being a personalised tour) and we got to see a number of sights not in the usual tours.
She also gave us a number of recommendations for good restaurants which were much appreciated. Would highly recommend.

Natascha Irini

A customized trip with Irini

Irini is a lovely host! She really cheered us up after the bag from one of us got stolen. Irini really knows a lot about the city and told us very enthusiastically about the myths/legends and facts about buildings/statues. The tour lasted precisely 3 hours and in those hours we walked the whole time. We even got a bonus, because we chose to have no breaks and thus learned more. Recommended!
