Tour description

Want to join the in-crowd and enjoy a night out in the most stylish district in Athens? Leave your flip-flops at home, dress smart-casual and get ready to wander with the beautiful people as we sample gourmet snacks and try special drinks and signature cocktails in some of the most sophisticated bars and restaurants in the city.

After meeting your friendly local guide, we will take a (slightly) uphill walk towards the neighbourhood of Kolonaki. Only a few blocks away from the main arteries of the city, Kolonaki is the city’s poshest district, offering expensive boutiques, luxury brands, high-end bars and fancy restaurants to anyone with the good sense to visit. This area has some seriously chic credentials too, attracting the likes of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Melina Merkouri

We will pass by some of the most buzzing streets in Athens before making our first stop at one of the most impressive buildings in the area, which is totally hidden in a narrow pedestrian street. The composer of the Greek National Anthem once lived in this neoclassical gem. In recent times it has been transformed into a retro-style bar beloved by the locals. We’ll take a seat on top of the roof garden and enjoy a signature cocktail as you admire those city views!

Athenians love pedestrian streets that feature cosy bars with terraces and so, we’ll head to one of our favourite examples of this and refresh your palate with an alcoholic beverage. As we sip our drinks we’ll chat to some of the ultra cool ‘regulars’ who always make a beeline for this place, one of the oldest and all-time classic bars in the city of Athens.

After our second drink, it’s time to wake up those taste buds with a gourmet sandwich made with all organic ingredients. The home of our snack has been a famous cheesemaker since the 1930s and is known for its collaboration with and support of local Greek farmers and small artisan producers.

Our fabulous evening tour continues with a stroll through Kolonaki Square and Tsakalof (another pedestrian street) where Greek celebrities can often be spotted dining at its café tables. A stop here for our last drink is an absolute must!

From our last stop, you'll have the option to head off on your own or (and we thoroughly recommend the second option!) you could keep your night going with your new Urban Adventures friends! Your guide will be more than happy to point you in the direction of another great bar — there are plenty to choose from!

Before we part ways, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the best out of your trip to amazing Athens.
