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

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!

Lars Eleni

Hidden Athens: The Past & Present

Dionysis, who stood in for Eleni, mixed a perfect afternoon with information, history, fun stories and everything we wanted to know about Athens. Time went by quickly, but we were able to see all the necessary places. This tour is a good start when you are in Athens for the first time and when you want to know where to go next. The visit in the neigbourhood bar was cool - nobody would expect a place like this behind the door we went thru. :-) Keep up the good work, Dionysis!

A customized trip with Irini

Nous avons passé 3 heures avec Irini. Elle a fait l'ensemble du séjours très plaisant. Mon fils de 4 ans a été très engagé avec les histoires racontés par Irini.
Je recommande vivement Irini pour découvrir Athènes.
