Nightlife In Athens: Party in Style!

Whenever we think about the nightlife of Greece, Athens is not as highly regarded as the party island Mykonos is. But in reality, the native people of Athens were always party lovers, and this clearly shows that partying is blended with their culture. Another proof of that is, even the Greek economic crisis couldn’t stop people from stepping out on the streets to party. The city always had an affinity for music and drinks. The widely spread bars and clubs around the mainland bear the testimony to the liveliness of the people of Athens at night. The options here are endless, one gets to experience everything starting from techno-blasting superclubs that are open ‘til sunrise till chilled-out live music venues serving up local beers. Here is a list of the top 3 entertainment hotspots in no specific order for you to get a clear picture of what to expect.

1. Clubbing and Dancing All Night

A large number of nightclubs will be open all night along the seaside, which of course is a great option for you to have a sneak peek of the Greek summer experience. Especially if you are travelling with your partner, cocktails under the stars, salty summer breeze of the sea, dancing to the melodies, all these will be enthralling experiences.

Gazi is another area which is famous for its night venues (Metro Station: Kerameikos). The square of Gazi consists of many clubs around it. Gazi is opted by people who want to stay downtown but still go clubbing. When it comes to music, mainstream music is the most common but there are a few options for the fans of rock and metal music, like Intrepid Fox, Rainbow Metal Club, and 45 Moires.

2. Live Music Venues

Technopolis is the old industrial gas museum in Athens. It is located in Gazi and now operates as one of the biggest cultural venues of the capital from hosting exhibitions, lives, events, till festivals all year long. If you are someone who likes to chill in the evening between old chimney and furnaces along with the elegant culture blended streets then, this is for you!

3. Drinks with a View

Imagine spending your evening somewhere high up with the beautiful view of the capital in the company of your loved ones. This is one romantic way to spend your summer nights in Athens.

Just the starry sky, the lights of the city, the ancient monuments, and the Aegean Sea in the distance, create a perfect atmosphere to have a drink or just enjoy the scenery. Our suggestions for rooftop bars with amazing Acropolis view can be found here, but there are many more open-air bars with a nice view all around the city. Apart from this, if you are looking for hotspots with stargazing that are not in the city center, then Laimos Vouliagmenis, Lagonisi, and Vrahakia Varkizas are a few options.
