1. Cantina Social

What is better than a slice of pizza? Well, besides two slices of pizza that is…Pizza and dancing of course!

3. Six Dogs
A classic choice for clubbers and party-goers in Athens, Six Dogs is also one multi-level culture hub where you can chill out with a coffee at its beautiful garden, watch a concert in the gig space, or attend an exhibition by upcoming artists.

Located in Kolonaki, one of the Greek capital’s poshest areas, newly arrived Cinderella discotheque has emerged to fill a void to all people nostalgic of late 70’s – early 80’s. In this narrow club you can have your drink while grooving in one of the most instagram-friendly dancefloors you’ll ever see.
5. Ela Na Sou Po
The most underground choice of our list and one of the yet best-kept secrets of the Athenian nightlife. “Ela na sou po” is located in the up and coming area of Metaxourgio and in its premises you can find local artists drinking among taxi drivers or tourists that stay in the nearby “Stanley” hotel. Music here is one of the best you can hear around Athens, often selected by local band members and artists.
