Loukoumi = a family of confections based on a gel of starch and sugar. Premium varieties consist largely of chopped dates, pistachios and hazelnuts or walnuts bound by gel (wiki).
Loukoumi = A bar located at Avissinias Square. The new trend of Athens is bars and cafes located on a roof where the view is awesome. And Loukoumi is a part of this new trend! But you have to find the ladder that leads there and the astonishing view of Acropolis and the ancient agora await you.
Besides the view, Loukoumi has great interior decoration. Paintings from Greek artists are mixed up with a poster of Maria Callas, live concerts alternate with DJ sets, and if you love urban points of Athens just take a break on Loukoumi’s balcony and take a look at Avissinias Square with graffiti’s all around.
Loukoumi cafe is open from early in the morning, until late at night for tapas and cocktails.
