Peristeri: 8 reasons to make it your go to place

Mind The Cup

BAR

During the day this is a favourite hangout of specialty coffee fans, since the menu is often renewed with new blends and single-origin coffees - in our last visit we tried a smooth coffee from the Colombian farm Finca Tamana. In the evening, young people gather at the tables under the plane tree and enjoy cocktails and uptempo music played by DJs.

Godmama's Yard

BAR

The godmother in this all-day bar's name is Mrs. Popi, who bequeathed the building to her godchildren. The building was transformed into a casual venue with a combination of industrial and vintage elements. In the large courtyard with the olive trees and the wicker chairs, young patrons drink specialty coffee and eat pizza, burgers and pancakes. The cocktails are named after flowers and were created by the team of the popular downtown bar The Bank Job, who is involved in this project.

Kika

BAR

Inspired by Almodovars film "Kika", this bar stands out for its character and music choices. Here you get to hear anything from jazz, swing, baggie and Latin sounds and when the weather is good make the most of its well kept garden.

Base Grill

RESTAURANTS

The process of meat preparation is considered a work of art here. Carefully selected, expertly cut and perfectly grilled, "Base Grill's" juicy steaks, beef patties, pork tenderloins and lamb ribs will persuade every meat lover to include this modern tavern in their favorite list.

Manor House

BAR

A spacious manor house, built in 1929, with a charming rooftop bar. Enjoy your favorite drink or otherwise get tempted by the bartenders creativity. You can also watch old movies screened on the wall of the neighboring block of flats.

Protoraki / Giagia Koukou

RESTAURANTS

On the one side "Protaraki", with the industrial style space, takes you back to an old Athenian coffee shop, while on the other side "Giagia Koukou" with libraries full of books and the rustic wallpaper makes you feel at home. Despite their differences, these two restaurants share the same kitchen and the same love for traditional Greek mezze and plenty of raki (anise-flavored, alcoholic drink). In the summer, catch a table οn its small veranda.

Kottavos

RESTAURANTS

A neat-looking Greek cuisine restaurant on two levels that will excite the fans of the retro atmosphere as it borrows elements from the old cafes and the city lounges. The name, in fact, comes from the skill game played by ancient Greeks in the night-time banquets. The cuisine, with dishes such as the Ioannina chicken with rose petals of Heraklion and tomato sauce or Arahova noodles with a variety of mushrooms and smoked cheese, show a preference for the products of small producers from all over Greece.

Arch Beer House

RESTAURANTS

The center-European facade of this beer hall draws the attention of passers-by, while the portraits of John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix in the rustic chalet interior attracts fans of rock music. Choose a table according to the artist or band that you love (the names are engraved on the tables so our favourite is the one with the Prince symbol!) and explore the extensive beer list, which includes some options from Greek microbreweries.
