At the up and coming neighborhood around Athinas Street, you can look for Formaika at Karori street. It is a co-operative “kafeneio” where you can enjoy your coffee early in the morning, your beer in the evening and a glass of raki late at night while you’re trying the really tasty food. You can choose among eggplant salad, small fish and other delicious salads!
But what it makes it special? First, it’s the aesthetics! A plastic globe above the bar, retro tables and chairs that makes you feel that you’ve visited a house from the ’60s. Second is the music! The music that the 4 owners choose for you is so special. From interwar jazz melodies to Tindersticks and Greek traditional melodies. Some nights if you are lucky you can listen to live rebetika that the friends of Formaika will play for you.
An easy going place for easy going days and nights.
