Batman Athens – Originally Greek

"Batman" (est. 1989) is a legend, a bar of great importance - you never know who you might run into, or how you'll end up! Important: it opens at 22:00...

This bar is a very exceptional case. First of all you have to wait until 22:00 when it opens and second you never know how your night will end. Batman started to operate in 1989 in Athens and it offers original Greek entertainment. At the bar you will meet the owner who is a barman and DJ and plays Greek music and rembetiko. Some days there are other DJs who also play the same repertoire.

Many customers are musicians, writers and bohemian faces all up for socializing. It is very normal to have a drink next to some famous Greek artist. There is no special drink to order apart from beer, wine and whiskey. But the thing that makes Batman so special is the unexpected things that occur. Over the years there have been historic live performances by great artists here.

Give it a try and visit this bar and maybe you will be lucky and live this experience. If that doesn't happen you can at least enjoy the atmosphere of authentic Greek fun.

Tip: Usually it is overcrowded, so prepare to get close with your company ;)
