Syntrimmi – Hands down my favourite spot!

I first visited what is now Syntrimmi around 2006-2007. Back then it was known as ‘the place without a name’. At some point it closed, and for many years, whenever I was in the area, I would tell people about ‘the amazing anonymous spot that used to be here but sadly is no more’.

Time-skip to November 2017. The November Athens Spotters meeting was convened at Syntrimmi, which Sanne had been praising for months, but which ‘I had never heard of’. I found myself, jaw to the floor, in that old favourite I thought time itself had forgotten.

This century-old one-storey house-turned-bar reopened in April 2017 under new management, namely a co-op comprising a team of 5 vibrant people always beaming with contagiously positive energy. The building itself used to house 6 families in its two spaces separated by what will draw your attention as soon as you cross the front door: the mini-atrium that could very well be the foyer to my personal heaven.

I returned to Syntrimmi for their literally unbeatable wine & coffee prices. Then I went back for their super-welcoming environment for quiet work in the afternoons. Then I went back for their music choices which fit my taste like a glove (Ibrahim Maalouf, Yes, Django Rheinhardt…). Then I went back with friends to celebrate my best friend’s nameday with some traditional snacks & oinomelo (hot wine with honey) and was surprised by how full it was!

In short, Syntrimmi has become my favourite spot in the city!

Live music on Thursday evenings.
