The Athens Concert Hall is very lovely and being an architect, I love the marble walls. Marble flooring all over. Their architect or designer wasn’t cheap. Very classy look, very elegant. My dad loved the place and the ballet performance. This one is a nice visit especially during the cold season. Just outside the venue is the metro station so... More

Kevin Spacey performed here last year and was blown away with the acoustics. This year I took in a play with much delight. The children could not believe it was a open theater

Beautiful acoustics inside, but nothing special or worth seeing. In line with every 60s concert hall in US cities. Modern, out of scale and place, clashes with the wonderful building that is the US embassy next to it. Too bad the Greeks missed the opportunity to create a modern era monument, one wonders how they feel if they look at... More

Well equipped, dull, double concert - opera auditorium next to the American Embassy. A most expensive and time consuming operation, that was the making of it, with the deepest underground 'well' for the garage. The controversial 'visionary' Lambrakis completed it and possibly misspent the funds in order to create a Bayreuth of sorts. Fine ensembles (symphonic) were traditionally invited. The... More

It's a place where many great artists have performance: Mariinsky Theatre, Jiri Kylian, etc. I have listened to the operetta (a local theatre) and got a great pleasure!
