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.

Trendy spot with avant-garde beats Editors' Note

Bios is a cutting-edge bar in a modern art and events space, and it is frequented by the hippest crowd in Athens. There are regular exhibitions, and short films are projected on to the no-nonsense concrete walls.

You’ll hear anything from house, dance and electro to avant-garde noise and trippy chill-out tunes at varying sound levels, depending on the DJ’s mood.
