A unique mix of historic Athens and modern day Mediterranean culture

Athens, which sprawls well beyond its official limits, is unlike any other European capital. Home to roughly one-third of the Greek population, its fabric has been woven by successive waves of migrants – initially from the Greek provinces, today from abroad – since it was established in the 11th century B.C. The Greek capital may exhibit all the characteristics of a big city but at heart it remains a small town.

For a traditional dish or perhaps a drink. A place to be no matter the mood, for drinks or food, day or night, the guys do it all and do it well.

Popular bar with beautiful courtyard Editors' Note

Cabezon is a bar with a beautiful courtyard, very popular among the locals in the warm seasons. The bar has limited seating inside, and, if you come late, you are very likely not to find a table in the yard either.

Cabezon serves drinks and food, in a relaxed, typically Greek, nonchalant atmosphere. They also play music, in a variety of genres, aiming to satisfy all patrons.
