The Handlebar Athens

The Handlebar – The first cycle cafe of the city!

Under Athinas street, at the area of Psyrri you can find the very first “cycle cafe” of the city! At Melanthiou street you can enjoy your coffee or alcoholic drinks or even one of their handmade tasty soups that they serve until the evening.

A few years ago Gareth and his team, who are obsessed with their bikes, decided to open “Handlebar” next to the space they had to fix their bicycles. Since then Handlebar has been one of the coolest hang-out joints in Athens! 

The guys have DJ sets, gigs and organise art exhibitions. Besides the bar they are a platform for artists to show their work whether that be rock’n’roll or fine art!

And as is written on their website :

“Cycle cafe & bar, Open daily .
Breakfast & lunch, English twists, Vegan sorted.
British & local beers, Seasonal juices, House cocktails & mixers.”

A London-style cycle cafe with buckets of charm!
