Loved how much love goes into making the cocktails. You get to see the process when you sit at the bar. I only had a gin&tonic but seeing how the more complex cocktails were made made me want to go again and try something fancy....More

Went on a Saturday night, place was crowded and nicely decorated. Unfortunately service was rather slow and the cocktails were not that nice as they were famed to be. Expected more, maybe I would give it a second chance.

Voted among world's top 50 bars in 2018 we just had to stop by for a couple of drinks during our weekend trip to Athens. Our favorite was the Spicy Baba #7. Can't wait to go back!

If you love Rum, if it's your favorite drink, don't miss it! But you will also love its cocktails. Stavros the bartender, makes me the best mixes!

Decent cocktails, very good quality and variety, very flexible and helpful service! Outside chairs and tables very small, uncomfortable and rather cheap (but rather common in Greece)

Righteously not only one of Greece’s best bars, but also one of the best worldwide. Numerous different rum bottles, exceptionally trained stuff that welcomes every customer with great warmth! Meticulously executed cocktails and great vibes from different dj sets every night.

Seriously amazing. We went there on back to back nights because the cocktails were so good. Not sure why people were complaining of the price? Most were extremely reasonable at 8-9 euro which is equal to or cheaper than a good cocktail in any city...More

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
