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.


Popular nightclub in Glyfada

Popular nightclub in Glyfada Editors' Note

Mikro is one of the busies clubs in Glyfada, attracting large crowds every weekend. The programme ranges from deep house to rock and funk. The club is known as a stage for renowned Greek and international DJs.

The decor is psychedelic, and futuristic, with hundreds of miniature bottles lining up the shelves of the bar, all lit by colorful LED lights. Excellent cocktails, decent prices.
