From the moment you step in through the entrance, you will be instantly welcomed into a world of imagination. Little Kook will give you a feeling of nostalgia, as their interior design constantly changes each season into something that is a reminder of our childhood. Their themes are carried out consistently, especially in their menus. All of their delightful and super sweet desserts are homemade and in big portions.

2. Noel

Think of a place that has been inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the spirit of Christmas all in one. Then imagine it actually existing in central Athens. Noel brings sophistication with a twist of quirkiness that leaves people intrigued to step in; and of course fully entertained when they do. The decor is covered in a variety of giant keys and clocks, as well as card symbols of the queen and the king, along with the colour theme of red, orange and green. So take a seat by the bar and enjoy one of their very many refreshing cocktails, cheers to that.

Address:  Karaiskaki 17, Athina 105 54

Opening times: Mon – Thurs: 10AM – 2AM   Fri and Sat: 10AM – 4AM  Sun: 10AM – 2AM

There’s a lot of traditions that is carried out in Greece still to this day. Whether that’s the drink Raki that is loved by locals and travellers, a giant gyros or even the addictive cold coffee beverage Frappe. Nancy’s Sweet Home is a place that locals go to religiously just so they can give into their cravings or sin on their diet for that heavenly sweet stuff. This dessert hot spot has been standing proudly for years and there is always a huge line of people coming back for more.

Start your day at Mostrou as you will truly fall in love with the city, by taking in the picturesque view that it offers at this rooftop bar. It is situated in plaka; which makes it also an ideal way to start your night with the open air night sky, some lively music and your favourite beverage. It is a truly relaxing place to be in, as the atmosphere is casual; whether that’s day or night.
