Athens: Nightlife Tour in Koukaki Neighborhood
Are you visiting Athens and looking to explore the nightlife while you’re there? Maybe you’re an avid night owl and want to find the best late-night spots, or a traveler just getting the lay of the city after dark? Either way, you can’t miss the Koukaki neighborhood – it’s a lively hotspot for visitors and locals alike and there’s no better way to take it all in than on a nightlife tour.
Koukaki is located in Southeast Athens, near two of the city’s most iconic landmarks: the Acropolis and the Parthenon. On this guided tour, you’ll step into the heart of a bustling neighborhood and discover some of Athens’ best bars, pubs, restaurants, and galleries.
After dark, the streets of Koukaki come alive with an electric energy. You can find people of all backgrounds enjoying the nightlife, from local university students having a brew to visitors getting to know their way around. After the sun sets, you can find yourself exploring an entirely different side of the city – like an entirely different experience – while hopping from bar to bar.
Your nightlife tour will begin at Zeus Bar & Grill, an Athens hot spot known for its Mediterranean menu and excellent selection of wines, beers, and cocktails. After that, you’ll visit another popular spot for live music – Helikon Bar – before making your way to the Edwardian-style Orient Express Cafe for some drinks and dancing.
Finally, you’ll end your evening at The Loft in Psirri District, an underground bar offering some of the best cocktails in town. And if you still have energy afterwards, you can take in some contemporary music and art at one of Koukaki’s many galleries.
The evening serves as a great introduction to any visit to Athens. You’ll get a sense of the city’s past, present, and future – which makes for a comprehensive experience. Plus, it’s a great way to meet fellow travelers or locals living in Koukaki.
The cost of the nightlife tour varies depending on the size of your group, but usually prices start from about €20 per person. The tour usually lasts around 3 hours, giving you plenty of time to explore the neighborhood and to chat with your guide about the city’s culture and history.
Most tours are bilingual in English and Greek (although other languages may be available on request) so one of your guides will be able to provide information about local customs and culture. Your guide will also know the best places to find food during your tour so you won’t have to worry about finding something to eat in between bar stops.
