This little oasis off the busy centre of Syntagma is home to a few great bars, including Kiki de Grece and Blue Bird, but Ipitou the Bar is a stand out as this quaint bistro and bar is open all day, where you can enjoy a great coffee or delicious drinks after sunset.

Only locals and regular visitors to Athens know about this wonderful pedestrian street in the city centre that offers exotic cocktails and funky music until all hours of the morning. The tunes and crowd have an uplifting vibe, but be sure to go early to secure a seat, as it is a tiny spot.

This quiet alley turns into a busy night spot by day, but it maintains a cool and elegant vibe. Buzzing on summer nights, it's one of the cosiest and trendiest bars in Athens.

A definite favourite with locals, it echoes the cobbled streets of an Aegean island, giving it a warm, welcoming feel. The cocktail menu is delightful, and their most popular beverage is the Cumulus Nimbus, with the fruit's flavour base changing depending on the time of year. Also, make a point of trying the Bandidos de Maracujas while listening to soul, jazz, and funky DJ sets.

What's amazing is seeing the large crowds spill onto the street, taking in the atmosphere and some of the 24 signature cocktails on the menu. You can also bite on some bar food that complements the beverages with great varieties of cheese, sausages, and marmalades.
