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.

    Wonderful cocktails and excellent service
    I popped into the Tiki bar on a hot September lunch time to have a break from the heat and I’m so glad I did! They have a huge cocktail list and the service is quick and friendly. The cocktails are really good quality, reasonably priced and beautifully presented. The complimentary popcorn is a lovely touch. Highly recommend!

    Love from the UK!
    This is an absolute gem of a bar! It was right next to our hotel and we came here everyday because of the hospitality, the food, the drinks and the overall atmosphere. The food is amazing! The pizzas are the best we’ve had in Athens. At night, the place is packed out and we can understand why. I would highly recommend if you are in Athens.

    Sweet Cocktails, sweet staff.
    The Kindest Staff. I lost my hair tie the night I visited the Tiki Bar. Upon returning 2 days later, they didn’t have it, but 3 people very kindle searched for it & were very sweet about it. Great service, very nice staff and good drinks in a fun vibe.

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.

We discovered this place after walking from Monastiraki. The décor of this place is excellent and could have a real vibe being so close to the Acropolis but the staff didn't seem to want us there. We ordered 2 rum and cokes, taking a break from the cocktails but it came to 36 euros.

I did request Appleton rum and they used rum that was in a Signature bottle but I am not convinced it was Appleton either. I know it's in a tourist spot but that sort of price is ridiculous. Athens was an amazing experience but this was one of the unfriendlier places we visited.

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

The bar has nice drinks and I love the fact that they offer classic tiki cocktails as well as modern interpretations and their own cocktails as well. Great bar that is nicly decorated. I would highly recommend this place if you want the summer feeling and like tiki drinks. We thought that the music was too loud to have a comfortable conversation.

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

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 !

It is a really friendly bar in an area of Athens that didn't seem to have many bars. The servers were lovely and isntantly ome over with glasses of water and mensu when you sit down. Your bill always came with a bag of popcorn as well.
The cocktails were very good and reasonably priced.

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)

Great atmosphere- nice music and good selection of drinks. No matter that there was rather many people the service was very quick and friendly - can only recommend to drop by for a drink or two
