Return – Street cocktails

I often take walks to the very famous and bustling Monastiraki, either to go to a local bar or buy CDs. Thinking that nothing would have changed recently in Ifaistou and surrounding streets, there it was, among the CD shops of the arcade: Return.

Return is a street cocktail bar, where everything is served in a plastic cup. On one hand, this contributes to keeping the prices low and on the other hand allows you to take your drink and stroll the magnificent narrow streets of Monastiraki and Plaka. Or (my personal favourite) you can sit on the pillows located at the exit of the arcade and enjoy the variety of the passers’-by catwalk, like one would do vacationing on an island. Tourists, locals, music lovers looking for the next hidden treasure in the CD shops, street artists, everyone can pass by. According to Return’s moto “Great cocktails, great music, great people”.

Return is open from morning to serve coffee and freshly squeezed juices with a twist, such as “apple, cucumber, lemon and ginger” or “beetroot, orange, pear and carrot”.

P. S. In its immediate plans is selecting a new type of certified plastic cups, which can be returned for a total discount of one euro.
