First night in Athens with friends. Located near the center of Athens - well at least near our hotel. Friendly staff and very casual and low key. Needless to say much cheaper than hotel prices. They do serve more than gin BTW!

For me the best cocktail bar in the center. Authentic environment, interesting, delicious cocktails, simple clean flavors. Such a nice surprise from the usual complicated, pretentious cocktails bars of late.

A very small and cosy bar in the city center. It’s a celebration of gin culture. And yes, both the drinks and the service are excellent and the people are very friendly.

Nothing but good things to say about this place. Their drink menu was inventive. The guys making the drinks are master's of their craft. They are as fun to watch as the drinks are enjoyable. If you enjoy gin, don't miss this spot!
