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.

Even though the guy who brought us the drinks made a mistake, he was very kind and offered us a second round

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!

Full transparency, the drinks were amazing here, but shortly after arriving, I realized my phone was missing. I used my phone at the bar and even have a picture of me holding the phone at the bar. The bartender was very empathetic and helped us look around our table and even asked bystanders. Things started to seem off when the host came over and made racist accusations about someone off the street coming up to our table and stealing the phone, but we know this was absolute nonsense. The host stole my phone and deactivated it within minutes. My trip to Greece effectively went off to a terrible start because of this shady bar, and I was phoneless for the rest of my vacation. Do not go to this place unless you want your personal property stolen, and then be lied to by the staff.…

Response from theginjoint, Owner at The Gin Joint
Responded Jun 4, 2019
Hello dear Ellen. I’m really sorry for the bad experience you had to our bar during your stay in Athens . But let’s make some things clear . First of all no one from the team at The Gin Joint is a racist or a thief . All the staff working are true professionals and as they informed me the next day about the incident ,they made everything they could asking to try and find your phone . Your bartender (filipos ) when he came to your table YOU told him that some guy with a piece of paper came to your table asking for money . After that your phone went missing . I know is a bad experience loosing your phone to a foreign country and we feel sorry about that , But we are not responsible for every customer personal property . We always inform our customers ,especially the ones sitting at the outside area of the bar ,to pay attention to the phones and bags ,in order to protect them from incidents like yours . Please do not make accusations for hard working people. Kind regards ,Dimitris
