Poems & Crimes is a bookstore in the center of Athens and the residence of Gavriilidis editions. Here you will find books about arts, psychology, international poetry, Greek and foreign prose, philosophy and more. But you will also find a beautiful place to read your book. Operating on the ground floor is an all-day cafe/bar/restaurant with many options to eat or drink. The second floor hosts various events such as art exhibitions, poetry readings and music performances.
It is a cultural multiplex. But it offers a quiet corner to read. Many times when I want to take a break from the noisy center, Poems & Crimes is my first choice. Here you will meet a lot of artists, intellectuals and poets -many times from around the world- to discuss things with. Try some of the selected wines and order one of the Greek traditional plates cooked with a modern perspective.
Poems & Crimes also has outdoor seating in its backyard and many times a week you will hear music performances under the night sky of Athens. Don’t miss it!
