I found this bar by accident after visiting Clumsies earlier in the evening. And what a great result! Excellent cocktails, friendly and attentive service, and a great ambience. This may be my favourite bar in Athens. Well worth a visit and especially so if gin is your thing.

Never met a hostess with more knowledge about gin and happily told you about the flavours and history of each gin we managed to try!

most importantly we were a 12 person company and asked to paid in parts. the ending was paying double many drinks and even we insested that there is definitely a mistake they insisted in a certain amount (not being paid yet) and we finally got stolen. not to mention that the same night no receipt was intially produced except for the first round of drinks (less than 1/3 of the total requested amount). Next day, after crosscheking this with friends who paid and left first, we contacted by phone the bar and spoke to the manager for the whole misunderstanding and double paying some drinks they told us they will call back-guess what nothing happend!!! so I insist terrible terrible choice if u are a self esteemed person...

The interior of the shop : nothing extraordinary in the decoration .
The staff was polite
We ordered 2 cocktails..it took 20 minutes to prepare the cocktails and it wasn't busy at all. The quality of the cocktails below average ,small glasses full of ice for 10 -11 euro each cocktail..
Not worth it

Went a couple of times, both times were amazed at how much fun you can have in a small gin joint! Staff were so knowledgable about gin and other drinks, it was a pleasure to stay and drink there. Even when my wife asked for a coffee, we were bamboozled by the coffee cocktail which appeared. There was a Bar 'event' in Athens and other barmen came to visit the Gin Joint to show their skills and added to the fun off the place. My only regret is that we only visited twice, but both times were brilliant.

We walked to The Gin Joint last night at around 7 and found the place fairly empty, luckily ((it's small). Initially staff seemed unfriendly but we figured out fairly quickly that since The Gin Joint is not in the heart of the tourist area the staff's English is limited. Most people in the bar were Greek, so you don't feel like you're in a tourist trap at all. They have an incredible selection of gin but also very nice whiskey choices. The bartender is a show unto himself, truly an artist and a chemist and a craftsman. I sat at the bar and watched him make many drinks, even though after a Negroni I just drank gin (Monkey 47, amazing) and tonic. It's one of those places that infuses its own gin and uses handmade tinctures, really worth a visit if you are a fan of the craft cocktail movement. They basically don't serve food but have a spicy hummus that is a great snack. Great place.

I think that it is the best bar in Athens. They serve nice and “clean” drinks, they make by far the best Tom Collins in town, the service is always polite and helpful and the atmosphere is cozy and friendly.

Awesome bar, has a great enclosed semi-outdoor area to vent cigarette smoke too. Our server Penny was phenomenal, I got the gemini cocktail which was garnished with a dried pepper and an explicit warning not to eat. Still ate, died, and enjoyed. Would definitely do again.
