What you can expect

One thing is sure: Athens knows how to party! If you're visiting the city, tasting the famous Athens nightlife is a must -and you should experience it not as a tourist, but as a true Athenian.

At night, Athens offers an amazing array of music styles and entertainment genres; there’s something for everyone here. But what sets Athens nightlife truly apart is the friendly and generous character of the Greeks, myou can bet your Athens nightlife tour will be really good-hearted, energetic and fun!

Your evening begins with a visit to a local neighborhood bar, to give you a feel of the everyday laid-back atmosphere that only the best bars in Athens can offer. Then, your Athens Nightlife tour is off to the hip downtown bars, where celebrated mixologists cater to a see-and-be-seen crowd in the most famous spots of Athens nightlife. Your guide, an open-hearted, outgoing Athenian who stays up longer at night than during the day, will help you find the perfect drinks at the coolest venues and give you any help you need in interpreting local customs. During your Athens by night tour, you’ll also do what every Athenian does when going out at night -grab a few snacks along the way, because food and drinks go together, and also because it’s a great opportunity to try some Greek meze (small dishes that go with drinks).

By the end of your Athens night tour, you’ll have seen a whole new side of the city and enjoyed the vibrant Athens nightlife like the locals do: with a bit of recklessness and a warm feeling towards these favorite spots where they can really express themselves.

"This tour was outstanding! Our guide, Andreas, showed us a variety of bars that we would never have found on our own. He was very open to any kinds of questions and made the tour interesting and informative at the same time. I would definitely recommend taking this tour and discovering the nightlife of Athens. The city and people have an incredible and positive energy that is very unique and worth seeing."

"We did the night tour with Antonis on our first day in Athens - what a fabulous way to start our trip! Antonis took us to five stellar bars that we would definitely not have found on our own - unique drinks, amazing food and lovely atmosphere at each of them. Antonis himself seems to know everybody at every bar - not surprising given what a fun and awesome guy he is! We cannot recommend the tour with Antonis enough - he is awesome and the tour is an absolute must do in Athens!!"

"Our guide made the night a special one. He took us to places that would be impossible to find yourself and covered everything from a trendy rooftop bar with views of the Acropolis to an out of the way non touristy Greek taverna with dancing and excellent food. If you want to check out authentic Athenian nightlife, do this trip!’’"

Amanda C

"Overall, the tour is a MUST if you enjoy seeing a city at night. The way the locals spend the nights in a city tells you a lot about the city's soul...and seeing it with Antonis is the best way to do it.’’"

"Can honestly say this tour made our Athens visit. A great mix of history and fantastic bars with our guide Andreas. Follow up tips were also really good, we then had a great plan for the next two days for sights, food and revisiting the cool bars from the tour. Highly recommended!"
