Best Athens by Night Tips

Athens is a global destination regarding nightlife, not today, for decades. Its parts include:

Mpouzoukia area, at south Athens. There are some Greek nights with mpouzoukia, OPA and plates breaking in Plaka as well! amazing Rigas Greek dances show…. 

Nightclubs at south Athens again. Glyfada is the main suburb- destination for nightlife, but if you follow the coastline, there are beach bars everywhere.

Many bars are located at city centre, but to areas like Halandri, Cholargos and Kifisia at the north.

Alternative bars are located in areas like Gazi, Keramikos, Metaxourgeio and Pagrati. You can combine also dinner plus drink out all around Athens, since they serve food at many bars.
