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.

Julia's Authentic Greek Lunch

We experienced a comfortable and delicious home-cooked meal at Julia's home. We ate on the patio, which was beautiful. She and her husband were very hospitable. The food and conversation were excellent.

Greek Cooking Class with Organic Products

Our cooking experience with Melina was one of the highlights of our trip to Athens.
Melina was very responsive and helpful with the lead up to our tour.
Her cooking/teaching facility was obviously well designed with culinary teaching in mind.
The best part was the wonderful experience of shopping at small local shops, prepping the ingredients, and cooking a complete authentic Greek meal.
Melina's vast experience and knowledge of nutrition and traditional Greek cooking made the experience extra special. She passed on to us the origin and history of all the ingredients we used to prepare the meal.
The extra bonus was being able to sit down and enjoy a wonderful Greek dinner with your wonderful teacher and host.

A customized trip with Marilena

Four of us had a chance to “be Greek” for the evening as Marilena whipped up copicious amounts of food that represented her family and culture. It was a lot of food and drink. Along with the meal we had an awesome time talking to her and her sous chef Dimitras. Those conversations really take the experience to a higher level. Well worth the cost, well worth the time.
