The capital of Greece has a lot of excitement to offer night-lovers and fun-seekers alike. Whatever you decide to do, you will soon discover that nightlife in Athens is not only varied and unique but it is also priced so reasonably that you can enjoy everything it has to offer. You can easily enjoy yourself right through the night. The only problem is that there are so many ancient wonders to see the next day. You can start your evening at one of the many excellent restaurants and typically Greek tavernas, which you can find throughout the city. The atmosphere in all Greek restaurants is unpretentious, informal and friendly and the food is exquisite. Before going to one of the Greek bouzouki taverns, you should try one of the hundreds of bars, which are full of young people and are located all over the city.
When you are in Athens you will have the impression that the city never sleeps. You will also hear many people say that Athens lives by night. To a great extent that statement is true. No other city in the world offers so many possibilities for evening entertainment as this so ancient and yet so modern city does.
The possibilities are indeed many: ancient Greek drama in a theatre dating from the time the play was written; a world-famous orchestra playing Beethoven or jazz in one of the best modern concert halls in Europe; also a club and music scene quite unique in the world for its diversity and resourcefulness.
Beautifully decorated bar-clubs, playing all kinds of music, from rock 'n' roll to jazz, to Greek and international pop, through the night, are found all over the city. Mainly in the Syntagma, Theseio and Kolonaki areas in central Athens and in all the suburbs of the city. Kifisia, Faliro, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Voula and Varkiza. You will also find many clubs, disco-bars and live music bars. And each one of them has something different to offer.
It is sail that a night sta bouzoukia (at the bouzoukia) is a night which one never forgets. At some point during your visit, you should really try to go to one of these places, listen to this authentic Greek music as well as sing and dance along with the other patrons.
