    Rum is the star at this trendy, popular bar in the heart of Monastiraki. All the liqueurs, syrups, and essences to flavor highly original and delicious cocktails are made in-house. The vibe is buzzy both indoors—where the decor has stylish yet quirky vintage touches like stained-glass lamps and antique drinking glasses—and out, where crowds gather especially on weekends. From tiki-inspired beverages to dark rum, chocolate, and lemon creations, you can spend hours experimenting here. Voted as one of the top 50 bars worldwide.

    Not a hotel as its name suggests but instead a bar where the crowds spill out colorfully onto the sidewalk tables every night of the week. Its main appeal comes from its come-as-you-are style, speedy service (considering the size of the crowd), and solid drinks.

    The ideal refreshing lunchtime spot in which to relax after shopping on busy Ermou Street, Kapnikarea is named after the sunken Byzantine church that's next to it. Take in live rembetika music as you sip ouzo and savor traditional specialties and ethnic dishes inspired by owner Dimitris's world travels. Music usually starts at 2:30 and continues until 11 pm.

    Just two minutes walk from Kolonaki Square, on the buzzy Tsakalof street packed with bars, this sleek, Prohibition-era-themed bar is always kicking with a mixed crowd sipping excellently mixed cocktails.

    Unlike Briki next door, where the younger generations go to flirt and down shots, O Kyrios caters to a more mature and glamorous crowd seeking sophisticated cocktails and finger foods to match. Dress up, perch yourself on a gold stool, and order a bottle of Prosecco or a potent martini in a tiny glass.

    If you'd like to learn about Greek wine using both your mind and your taste buds, this modern bar with bold yellow walls and high stools is the place for you. Serving some 50 Greek labels by the glass among a selection of 500, this wine cellar–turned–wine bar/restaurant is popular for its high-quality wines, educationally minded staff (it is run by a team of wine experts), and foods that pair well with what you choose to drink.

    Dark, moody, and very atmospheric, with a long bar lined with leather stools upon which the city's hip and glamorous people sip their cocktails, this newish spot can easily become a favorite hangout. Drinks are accompanied by small cold cut meze instead of the usual bowl of nuts, and cocktails are expertly crafted. Music is very important to both the owners and customers here, and every Wednesday and Sunday DJs play vinyl-record sessions, while on other nights you'll hear everything from German B-movie soundtracks to spiritual jazz. To experience the bar in its full stylish glory, head here between 6–8 pm and sprawl out. After that it gets extremely busy on most nights.

    Get here before 9 pm for a drink and a chat, but after that be prepared for a fun night of bopping along to live jazz, funk, or blues performances as you sip your drink and maybe even sing along. There's always a happy atmosphere here, plus fresh talent, good drinks, and friendly service.

    Beautiful people, breakneck music, and a slightly gaudy VIP vibe have made this club-restaurant a perennial city favorite all year-round. The food here is also top-line and there's a beautiful garden when you need a breather. Reservations are highly recommended for both the club and the restaurant.

    Over the last few years Greece has exploded with microbreweries, with even ordinary supermarkets now selling at least a handful of exceptionally fresh, sometimes unpasteurized and always interestingly flavored beers. The ideal place for choosing among hundreds of labels of Greek craft beers is this pub in Psirri, where you can relax for hours watching the world go by.

    Cool architects and graphic designers, arty students and hipster DJs, revolutionaries and experimental philosophers: they all hang out in the cavernous basement of this Bauhaus building in the Kerameikos neighborhood, part of the greater Gazi district. Expect to hear the best electronica music in town. In summer, relish the view of the Acropolis from the postmodern, neon-lighted roof terrace. A handful of "multispace" imitators have emerged, offering offbeat film/video and music events in painfully hip industrial spaces—but Bios remains the standard.

    Laptops, coffee mugs, and chess sets cover the long wooden tables in this Central Athens joint by day. By night, chatty partygoers squeeze—booze in hand—into any spot they can find at this bar, which remains as edgily cool as when it first opened in the 1990s. It often feels like a laid-back party, as DJs navigate through rock, pop, and dance tunes and the multitasking bar hosts art exhibits, dance performances, art films projected on a massive wall, and theater installations. Wood details, low-hanging sculpture-lamps, and wax artworks give a warm feel to the high-ceilinged space. The antiestablishmentary attitude of the cooperative means that smoking is permitted on the premesis

    With walls adorned with brightly lit bottles in all colors of the spectrum, Brettos is mainly popular among tourists who have seen photos of it over the years. Locals who still choose to come here do so to relish the memories of the oldest distillery in town (going strong since 1909) and the second-oldest bar in the whole of Europe. The huge barrels store head-spinning spirits produced on the premises even today—ouzo, cognac, liqueurs (like top picks cinnamon or mango), tsipouro, and more. Order a mezedes platter to accompany your beverage of choice.

    On hot summer nights the fountain in Mavili Square, spreads coolness over the tables of café-bars like this one, enjoyed by the most flirtatious of urban night owls until the morning's wee hours. Funk and jazz music is usually on the playlist. In the morning Briki—really anyplace in Mavili Square—is ideal for a coffee break.

    With wine-obsessed and highly knowledgeable owners, Cinque is a deli/wine bar where you can get to know some of the most unknown and fascinating Greek wines from around the country. The ambience is friendly, intimate, and warm and the staff is always happy to help you find the ideal label for your palate or to suggest pairings with the cheeses and cold cuts they serve. As this is a small place, book your table in advance.

    This youthful, scenic, and modish bar offers a different kind of local color than the usual walk-in or street-level place, as you'll have to enter an arcade selling antiques and take the elevator to the top floor of an old building to reach it. As you step out onto the roof, you'll come face to face with a stunning view of the Acropolis, the National Observatory, and the Anafiotika area—and after sunset all of them beautifully lit up. The cocktails are creative, the finger foods tasty, the music loud (there are regular DJ sets hosted), and the service friendly.
