A cozy cafe in the waterfront of Thessaloniki. You can enjoy good coffee during the day and a selection of drinks and cocktails later in the evening. The atmosphere is good and you can also dance there.

One of my favourite cafe, with great atmosphere and good music. The only negative thing is the prices. Expensive place

The MOST inappropriate, unprofessional and rude service I've ever come across in any country in my life (and as a (nearly) 39-year-old traveller I've had a few interesting experiences)!

My boyfriend and I went into Thermaikos this New Year's Eve at about 10.30pm. It was freezing outside (into minus temperatures) and we were attracted to this bar as there was a nice atmosphere with people dancing (which we like). BUT, the staff ruined it...

The first thing that grated on me was when the waitress came to take our drinks order and on hearing that my boyfriend wanted a non-alcoholic drink, made a big fuss about not drinking tonight! He seemed uncomfortable and explained he was taking antibiotics (which he shouldn't have had to do. What if he'd had a drinking problem, or something similarly uncomfortable like this?!..Staff serving alcohol should never behave like this!

Anyway, they finally brought our drinks but within a few sips the music stopped and people were putting coats on...it was closing time! No one had mentioned anything, there were no signs, and when we complained they offered us take-away cups for our drinks! I said I wasn't happy with this; they should've told us they were closing soon and I asked for our money back. We'd spent nearly 8 euros on drinks to be somewhere with music and out of the cold (we could've had a beer from a kiosk for 1 euro if we'd wanted to be outside!). The waitress wasn't happy with this and said she couldn't be telling everyone they were closing soon!!..hahaha, how ridiculous, part of her job, no?! She couldn't say, “Just to let you know, we're closing in about 10 minutes.” but she could mock someone for their choice of drink!!

THEN...the barman randomly joined in and said I was being a 'bad-word' (TripAdvisor won't let me write it)!!! He kept saying it like some nasty school bully, also adding that I should've known (my Greek boyfriend didn't, why should I?!)...with the grand finale, "You should know, you're a 'bad-word'!"!!...and even said it again in front of his boss when I demanded to talk to her!!!...She wasn't happy and said something for him to stop but it didn't seem to be taken seriously; no-one apologised and we were just asked to leave like we'd done something wrong!! ..I was really angry by this time so was raising my voice, telling him he didn't deserve such a nice job dealing with people and there were many more people in this economic crisis who did, and that he should do something like cleaning toilets where he doesn't deal with people (haha, I actually think I was quite gentle on him), so I don't think they knew what to say or do really!

People who know me well, know I'm quite sensitive and would be upset by something like this at any time. However, he chose a particularly unfortunate time to pick on me as my dad has been in a hospice for a month now (so not the best Christmas.. a good night out for New Year's was very much needed), so I'm especially delicate and it upset me even more..actually it popped my bubble of briefly forgetting my problems and really ruined my New Year! I also (perhaps foolishly) feel a little ashamed that I didn't deal with it as coolly as I may've under better circumstances...I enjoyed a bit of shouting back at Mr School-Yard Bully! But then I don't know...I've never been called this in my life, really!

I'm considering taking this issue more seriously as I feel strongly that people shouldn't get away with such behaviour. However, I have a lot to deal with at the moment so maybe they will be lucky and just get away with a few bad reviews on the internet.

I was pretty tired after the long crowded bus number 78 from the airport and my friend had received me to show me around the city.The sun was really strong and the orange juice at this place saved me :P pretty nicely decorated ,good ambience only the waitress could have smiled a little more ;)

Among all the other bars next to the sea, this is my favourite. Although its usually crowded, the service is excellent and I always enjoy the coffee and complimentary cookies. Either with a friend or even alone, one is never bored since there are always free local magazines about whats going on in the city (cinema, shows, music etc) so its not just a place for cafeine refuel but also cultural.

Nice cozy place. Great music. Nice collections of cocktails and teas. View of the sea. The only problem that u can't avoid is the traffic.

not a chic place, but really cozy, can remind you of old times, a bit of vintage, reddish, good prices, friendly stuff and central.
