Ababa - where the story continues...
Oct 2020 • Couples
It is not the first time we have so such nice moments here. Whenever - daytime or nighttime - the feeling is same great. Maria is the good spirit of this place. Her friendly, open, talkative with big hart and even bigger smile charm will seduce everyone. Just come and check yourselves, you won’t regret it!

Unique little bar
Aug 2019
We enjoyed the shade in this friendly little bar with quirky decor. Situated in a pretty little side street it was a nice break in our morning.

Friendly bar

Very friendly bar. Maria one of the servers was made for that job. She was friendly, fast attentive with attention to detail. She served us once and remembered our order the second time. Great drinks, fun atmosphere, great mix of people. We were looking for a gay bar in Chania and this was the closest thing. Gay friendly environment, but not exclusive. Closes late, a lot of character in the decor. Would highly recommend!!!

Great little bar
Aug 2019
We were looking for something a little different from the standard tourist bars, for a nice coctail - Ababa Bar was perfect.

Cocktails were really nice and good value, had a cheeky couple before (or after dinner) twice in our 4 nights in Chania.

Perfectly charming
Sep 2019 • Couples
My husband and I came across this bar on the first afternoon we arrived in Chania. Only coffee and a soft drink ordered but the service from the hostess who served us was so polite we decided to go again today. Again, only tea and coffee ordered but we will definitely return for post dinner drinks at some point during our holiday. The bar inside is also an art studio. Beautifully bohemian and thoroughly charming. It was a sea of calm in what can sometimes feel a crazy, chaotic Chania. Please try this place, we believe you won't regret it!

A gem. Don't miss it whilst in Chania
Aug 2019 • Couples
The barman can't do enough for you. The Greek version of Tapas brought eregularly, as is Raki flavoured with lemon.

Great art inside too, all situated on a quiet lane leading up from the harbour with a cooling breeze.

Unique and quirky place with great cocktails!
May 2019 • Couples
We happened upon this place while looking for somewhere to have a late night drink. We could not have found a better place!
As soon as you walk in, you can tell that this bar is unique. The dark lighting sets the mood and there are lamps lit inside to give a soft pink glow. There are flowers all over and interesting artwork covering the walls. It wasn't too busy, but some locals walked in with a dog and he found a spot on the floor and made himself at home. It was so cute. The guy behind the bar knew the locals who walked in, but even though he was chatting with them in his downtime, he was still very attentive to us whenever he noticed our drinks were getting low. He brought over a little dish of veggies with an interesting vinegar dressing and little toothpicks to eat it with. It was really tasty and he kept it topped up throughout the night. He also made a REALLY great Mojito!!! I had about 3 they were so good!!
The music selection was really great too and we sat back and enjoyed ourselves for a good chunk of the evening here. So glad we stumbled upon this place!!
