The first days of Gazi as a nightlife district were also the first days of Hoxton. Back then, the area was full of alternative, indie and sophisticated bars, cafes and clubs. Though the area has been constantly unfolding into a more mainstream and trashy direction, Hoxton is still there maintaining the feeling of the good old times.
It used to be one of the hotspots of the town. Now that Gazi has become very noisy on a Saturday and Sunday night, Hoxton feels like an oasis in the central square.
I enjoy going there on weekday evenings or in the afternoons for coffee and special cocktails.
The urban, industrial space with occasional art exhibitions and the great music choices from wide range such as alternative, oldies, pop even electronica make Hoxton the ideal place for any time of the day but also for glorious party nights.
The influences from London, as the name of the bar suggest, may be obvious but still there are the people of Athens which make it as local as it gets!
