Mousiko Kafeneio (roughly music café) is more than just my neighbourhood café-bar; it’s a genuinely awesome spot, somewhere you can expect the cool people to hang out at. Always packed, it has the perfect atmosphere (deciding whether to upload a photograph of the interior or the exterior and the time of day was tougher than I thought). It’s at the perfect location, on a pedestrian zone close to the neighbourhood central square, playing music right up my alley, throwing parties and featuring live bands every so often… I’d say it has just about everything going for it, really.
The only problem is that it’s so close to where I live I can literally sit in my balcony and count the people sitting at Mousiko Kafeneio at any one time. That’s the only reason I don’t go there as often as I would otherwise; it almost doesn’t count as going out!
That said, I would come here much more often if I didn’t live in Nea Smyrni. I’d suggest you do the same, preferably closer to the evening when the square is livelier and the colour of the light is prettier. Also keep in mind that their coffees all go for €2.5 and we have ourselves a winner. Gimme a shout if you’re in the neighbourhood and I just might drop by; at the end of the day, all I’m looking for is an excuse!
Tram stop Agias Foteinis will get you far. Goes well with a walk in the Alsos.
