Velvet Room – DIY arts and music room

Velvet Room is a DIY space curated by The Callas  and the Velvet Squad, the people behind the Velvet  and Lust magazines as well as various arts exhibitions, artworks, films and events.

Velvet Room is an actual room, a very typical central Athens apartment which has been turned into a live music, performance, art, party and seminar venue. When there aren’t any events taking place, Velvet Room is the studio of the band, The Callas.

I mostly go there for the music. It hosts some of the best local gems as well as international artists. Some of my favorite acts like Chickn, Kid Flicks, Victory Collapse and Angelos Kyriou have played there.

The Velvet Room occasionally curates nights at the nearby Mpankeion (Pl. Omonias 18, Athina 105 52), an abandoned hotel built in 1894 which has been reactivated by the Athens Biennale.

Check their facebook page for events and if there is something going on while you’re in the city don’t miss the opportunity to get a glimpse of the Athens indie – underground scene.
