Greece Trip Itineraries

Top 10 Nightlife in Greece

Destination(s): Athens

The best deals for nightlife in Greece are totally different options that can either take you back in the Ancient times with a live performance in one of the ancient theatre ruins, or have you sipping some special cocktails in the company of a hip, international crowd in an industrial location. Greek people like to party and are really good at it, so make sure you hang around the locals for some authentic Greek fun. There are places for jazz and rock lovers like the famous Half Note Jazz Club and the infamous Low Profile, as well as more hip venues like Villa Mercedes, which is usually packed with young and fashionable crowds who came to get sociable in the right place. Final important notice to all visitors: do not leave Greece before you've had some traditional ouzo, and go to Brettos for the best selection of this magical, traditional liquor. read more about Top 10 Nightlife in Greece

Rock'N'Roll has been the place to be seen after hours for the last two decades. The same company owning the popular Balthazar has made it what it is by offering friendly service, good burgers, and better cocktails, but all of that is only to be had if you look good enough to get past the front door. Dressing smartly, if not consulting a stylist, is recommended. read more about Rock'N'Roll

Low Profile

Low Profile

  • Lykavitou 6
  • tel:(210) - 362-0200
  • Athens Ece

In a narrow, gutter-width bar, just in the gateway of cultured Kolonaki, the atmosphere is as smokey-voiced and bedroom-eyed as Tallulah Bankhead in a prohibition era  speakeasy. Athens might be an unlikely place for such a hangout, but the whiskey bar, Low Profile, is where you go to find the same faces night after night drinking high grade scotch and malt whiskey to the accompanying tunes of US imports like Johnny Cash, J.J. Cale, Billie Holiday and a whole wide assortment of other lesser-known legends.

The prices reflect good taste and an unoccupied stool or chair is a rarity. It is one bar out of hundreds choosing to ignore the smoking ban made official in January 2010. We say this as a way to tell you it might not be for everyone, but it doesn't stop eclectic, intelligent crowds from amassing nightly in search of high grade alcohol and top rate music.

  • Athens Ece, 10437

The most beautiful thing near Omonia Square is this stately nineteenth century building (1890-1901)  by the architect Ernst Ziller. It is the home to the National Theatre of Greece, reopened in 1994 after several decades of being deserted and with a total restoration completed 2009. Opera buffs should note that it is the site of Maria Callas's first professional appearance in a 1942 performance of Puccini's "Tosca."
