The area
Neighborhood: Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.

Such a fun place. Pays homage to Polynesian pop and tiki bars in its own Athenian way. Drinks were solid, and super well priced for Athens. Service was good and the seating indoors was super cool. Def recommend the Bitter Fresh its a tiki take on an Aperol spritz without the bubbles. Prior reviews talking about time limits or getting kicked out for reservations just don’t understand how bars in Athens and other busy cities work. If you want more time make a reservation and keep drinking :)

Found this gem as it was a short walk away from our hotel during our stay in Athens. Great music, fun decor and really lovely vibe. Cocktails were really tasty and reasonably priced. Was really nice sitting outside and people watching in the evening. Was a really lovely find

On quite a busy road but the plants and bamboo fencing mask that. We went quite early so only a few people there but nice service. Mojito for me and a couple of bottled beers for hubby. Served with some fresh popcorn. Imagine it gets busy later in evening and weekends

Avoid at all costs this nicely decorated but incredibly rude and desperate for extra cash bar. I arrived at 7.20 pm to have a drink with a friend (this place used to be a spot for us). At 9 pm and AFTER I ordered my second drink, we were informed that we have to leave at 10pm because our table was reserved. Of course no one told us that before we ordered our second round - that we have less than an hour to enjoy our drinks. After 10pm we were literally kicked out (as warned) and when I confronted the waitress she rudely replayed: "You are here from 18.00 (!) already, the tables have to be recycled". Really?? Not only they were not sorry, they also insulted us - with false data no less. Greece at its worse. People at their worse. They destroyed our memories from the bar and our evening. Of course we will never step foot again. And we'll also spread our experience to all of our friends. As for the waitress (Konstantina), I feel sorry for her, not only she is an unsensitive pawn, she also thinks she achieves something by being this way.

P.S. Just noticed they are other critics (on Google) saying the EXACT same thing. Thank you for making people feeling awful on their day off!
P.S.2 Don't give your money to this kind of people! There are tons of bars in Athens that are nice and also serve kindness and won't ruin your day.

Mrs Stratico thank you for using this platform as well to share your experience. As our team already replied in your google review, I would like to write here again that we hope you can accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Our staff should always inform the customers if there is a reservation later on the same table. In fact this is a very strict rule that we have since the first day we opened in 2007! Please be sure that we are already looking into the incident in detail as it is an extremely rare one. All these years we have been around we have encouraged our customers to never hesitate to talk to us right then and there or contact us however they wanted for whatever reason, cause what matters to us the most, is that you can enjoy the tiki experience to the fullest! This is why we have such a strong Tiki crowd and this is why we now have countless friendships with people from all over the world that we met as customers. So in case you would like to discuss the matter further you can do so through our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TikiBarAthens/, or over the phone. Let us know and we hope to see you again in spite of this rare incident.

Felt like they send foreigners upstairs where there is no view or ambience straight away and could not care less about your custom.I now see we are not the first to say this. Horrible experience. Walked out and ended up in the Regal Bar Athens and had a fabulous experience - friendly and welcoming and even made us Espresso Martinis that we’re not on the menu! The Regal Bar was brilliant to us. FORGET THE TIKI BAR !

We stopped by for drinks before dinner but will be back if we get a chance! We didn’t try the food but the drinks were good and the popcorn is a nice touch. We especially liked the music (60’s, 70’s soul and rock)

I cannot agree at all with the previous reviewer's criticism. The Tiki Bar is ideally located: very quiet, but close to the Acropolis Museum. The cocktails are delicious, and so are the tacos. The staff is very nice. Altogether, this is an ideal place to have a drink or two before or after dinner.
