Ηere it feels like home
Το δέντρο στο Bar (To thedro sto bar)
It is an old manor with a big staircase leading to the front entrance, high ceilings, old wooden casings, a big hall in the middle and rooms right and left. On the walls you can see old pictures of places, people and things, shelves with glasses and bottles, and more. Books and board games are available for the customers.
Small and lovely coffee shop
Piece of cake
2 girls decided to open a small coffee shop, decorate it with their taste and give their costumers the chance to enjoy their coffee along with a delicious cup cake!
Going back in time
Καφωδείο Ελληνικό (Kafodio Elliniko)
In a quiet little road with trees, there's a very authentica place. Its name could be translated "Greek Coffee-Conservatory": it serves coffee during the day, whereas you can enjoy your drink listening to music at night. Its variety of beers is quite big. It has a very unique environment and it is popular to people of all ages.
One is for sure, you won't find so easily an other bar in town with such range of beers! Black, red or blonde? From what country? It's not so easy to choose? Just say what you would like to try and they will recommend you some of their beers!
Beer, delicious food and nice people
Beerατής (beeratis – a word-play between beer and pirate) has a great selection of both draught and bottled beer and their prices are more than descent. Somewhat of an Irish pub in Thessaloniki. An alternative choice for anybody who likes beer, delicious food and great music – from blues and rock & roll to funk and classic rock.
Probably not a place for somebody on a tight budget, since the drinks are pricy (most of the cocktails cost about €7-10), but at the same time so tasty that you won't be able to stop ordering more. And that can easily take you overbudget in a place like this. The music is interesting and the crowd is very good-looking and quite fancy.
In one of the hippest neighborhoods of the city center, La Doze manages to combine two elements that are really hard to go together: the crowd is so diverse, that you end up wondering what is going on, and the venue itself is so out-of-this-place!
An old-school bar
Classic to alternative rock music, cold beers, nice drinks and darts. The regulars are friendly and they make you feel right at home. This is a great place to go for a relaxed beer and a game of darts. At random times, a group of crazy people will gather here and start partying like there's no tomorrow. Those nights tend to be hardcore - beware!
Πλατεία Αριστοτέλους (Aristotelous Square)
It’s one of the most beautiful corners of the city of Thessaloniki, a square you should take the time to visit, walk around and enjoy your coffee or ice-cream while there, with an incredible view of the sea and the nearby harbor, surrounded by the huge classic arches of gorgeous buildings that form this unique and famous square!
In a mood for art, games and colors?
RE take me there
It is a quite new place, but already loved by many. Situated in one of the quiet and beautiful pavements of the city center, it is so small on the front, that you could easily walk by without noticing it. What is in there, what makes it special? Keep reading!
Drinks on the roof
Fragile Bar (στην ταράτσα)
Bar on a rooftop with a view of the city centre, cool breeze on a summer night, small and big wooden boxes instead of chairs and tables, good music, a projector showing various scenes -e.g. from old tv series- on the wall... Isn't that enough to love it?
Restaurant and cocktail bar
Both the food and the wine menus are way more than just descent. You will for sure find something to satisfy your appetite, be it seafood or pasta dishes, delicious salads and desserts going all the way to stunning ribeye steaks and traditional greek dishes like mousaka. Their cocktail menu is amazing and delicious, too.
A well hidden secret
Many locals don't even know this place as it is well hidden in a small alley, though in the very centre of the city. However the ones that do know it, consider it a special place, where they can enjoy mostly greek drinks and food, in a unique, mystical environment with low lighting and brick walls filled with works of art.
Where music and art happen
This place is a concert venue and hosts Greek as well as international musicians and bands. Their people try to support new musicians and introduce them to the city's audience. But, apart from music, Block33 displays also other kinds of art, like experimental theatre shows and art exhibitions.
French style, greek hospitality
The place is small and charming, french bistro style, located at a quiet pedestrian streer in the city center. You can sit either ouside on the street or on the bar of the narrow hallway or at one of the tables after crossing the hallway.
Taxidi is the last place open every single day. It is known to be an after party spot. Every single day they'll stay open really late, almost going into the morning hours. Everybody has a tendency to get crazy and dance around with everybody else.
In the heart of the city, on Zefxidos pedestrian street, you can find a little piece of heaven. An amazing café that will travel you back in time from the moment you get in. Great coffee and tasty cocktails is what Pastaflora is famous for.
Δωμάτιο με Θέα (Domatio me thea)
The building, where this cafe-bar is located, is actually a movie theatre, which also hosts the famous film and documentary festivals of Thessaloniki. So many locals combine a movie with a drink at the bar afterwards. But many people also visit it in the mornings, to drink their coffees -which by the way are very good- and enjoy the view.
This coffee shop is located at a very central square in Thessaloniki, called Navarinou. This place looks like the old-fashioned -in a good way- coffe shops of Greece, called "kafeneio": you can tell from the old fashioned wooden chairs, the wooden tables with the marbled surfaces and the colorful motif of the floor tiles.
The sweetest white coffee shop
Almost everything in there is white: the chairs, the tables, the walls. The floor is like a chess board, with black and white tiles. The place has the style of a french bistro and it seems to have been missing from our town. The locals seem to love it, both for coffee during the day and drinks at night. Delicious pastry is also served!
Eat and drink at an old warehouse
This place used to be a warehouse, which makes its appearance unique. The kitchen is located at the center of the resaturant, so you can see all the cooking going on! Its view of the city is really worth it, since you can see the sea front of the city as well as the White Tower! The food -although a bit pricey- is delicious and of big portions.
