Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a

It was a liquor store not a bar. Selling OUZO and liquers. The new owner made it into a bar keeping the original decor. Nothing is made there. Just a bar with the old decor.
