America’s mean girls star and hollywood actress lindsay lohan (lilo) announced via her instagram page yesterday that she will be opening a new nightclub in athens. It is the center of nightlife in athens that is always filled with hipsters and social butterflies. Nightlife in athens is not all about sophisticated wine bars and cutting edge cocktails the city’s underground clubs draw their own crowd, who find their happy place among sticker-covered walls, hypnotic lights, loud music and low ceilings. At all bouzoukia nightclubs there is a photographer, who will, for sure, take your picture, either you want so or not.
Athens nightlife consists of tavernas with live music, bars, box athens and greek nightclubs. The greek capital’s after-hours bars are not meant as places for winding down the evening’s proceedings but, on the contrary, to spur further partying. Yiannis kotsiras, mihalis hatzigiannis, alkistis protopsalti and dimitris mitropanos are some of the famous greek singers that offer quality shows and music.
Popular venues with greek popular singers are kentro athinon (peiraios 142), enastron (peiraios 188), club 22 (leoforos vouliagmenis 22), posidonio (leoforos posidonos 18), fotaerio (peiraios 102) and hotel ermou (ermou 152). Resident dj giannis oikonomou and dj junior rush (resident dj at astra” club, mykonos) are the main acts of saturdays at lohan, echoing house vibes that have the crowd dancing all night long.
Antonis remos has a long and extremely successful career in the music scene of greece with the unique metal of his voice, being one of his basic and characteristic elements of every live performance. The more famous a singer the more offers he will receive from various bouzoukia owners, who would like him or her to lead the show at their club.
It is a fact that around 50% of the greeks are smokers and bouzoukia-nightclubs must be the smokiest place you could go to. Some of the guests who’d like to show off may even light a cigar at bouzoukia. When the rest of the city sleeps, a few after-hour haunts allow those who can put up with the smoke party the night away. Island is the club for which the international press has repeatedly referred to on the stories about greece, and famous international visitors walk through its paths every summer.
