THE NIGHT OWLS

Never, ever say “I won’t go out tonight!”

09:00 – 18:00: 58 emails, 12 calls, 3 coffee shots, a feta cheese & olive sandwich, a ½ empty glass

18:00 – 21:00: 1 shower, 2 calls, a little more texting, meeting two friends downtown, 2 pints of Greek beer, a ½ full glass

21:00 – 23:00: As time flows ethereally in the breezy Athenian evening, you stop counting minutes and responsibilities. Friends laugh and friends mingle, new friends join in, the next round of cocktails is on. As the night takes over, it seems like a new beginning, right at the point where schedules cease to exist. Rip up your daylight agenda and start all over again!

The night is young and the city lights promising. In the neighborhood around Syntagma Square, you drop by a secret garden bar for an unplugged gig; the folk guitar notes fly up, getting tangled around the balcony railings. 

Next up, someone tells you about the rock & roll party at Gazi, where punters in teddy boy and girl attire are rocking round the clock like it’s 1959! You may end up in the street-cafes of Psirri, drinking warm, spiced, honeyed raki until dawn; or in a night club, your heart beating along with the bass-line; or you might find yourself at the bouzoukia, the Greek live music clubs, where singers, dancers, flowers, and passion meet on the same stage.

The night is an arena of possibilities; you’ll dance, you’ll laugh, you’ll enjoy. You’ll head back home, look up at the sky’s electric blue as light ushers in a new day and you will feel grateful…
Because you know, that this ancient city on this very day, will bring some fresh surprises your way.  Are you ready?
