Nightlife in Athens
Athens is virtually a paradise for night owls. Whether you start with dinner and then hit the clubs or begin with a couple of drinks before making your way to one of the many live music establishments, the city is sure to keep you entertained until the early hours. The atmosphere in some of the bars and dance clubs has to be seen to be believed, while a visit to a bouzouki club is an experience not to be missed. In summer, in particular, it appears that everyone is out on the town. The seaside resorts of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza and the northern suburb of Kifissia are especially popular and provide a cool respite from the city. But the choice is not limited to bars and club. There are countless coffee shops that stay open until late at night, taverns, restaurants, theaters and cinemas (both indoor and outdoor).
