The Wee Dram is most definitely the Scottish pub of Athens, a little island of Highland pride, hospitality and warmth far into Europe’s South. Where should I begin? Happy Hour on Tuesdays & Wednesdays (a pint for just € 2.50!), pub trivia every Thursday, live music on weekends, football nights, exclusive Scottish beers and whiskey… There’s not nearly enough space to mention everything going on and rest assured: no other pub in Athens even comes close to the variety, quality, prices and environment offered here.
I’ve visited The Wee Dram several times but probably the best was on my nameday. I had a fantastic Innis & Gunn (apparently they don’t carry this one anymore but they have similar quality brews) and my friends had something to eat. We could’ve had it much cheaper but it was well worth it. Quite possibly the best beer I’ve ever had.
Another thing I like about this place is the guy who runs it. Ross is very friendly and laid back and he’ll make sure you feel at home and want to visit again.
The Wee Dram is located in Panormou close to several other highlights of mine, including Danaos, Yellow and Playce (check out the articles). You should definitely try going to the movies on a Wednesday at Danaos and then hang around for a beer right here. Film + pint of beer for less than 8€; this has got to be one of the best deals and evenings one can get in Athens.
