Athens and the Great Night Life
Once you have signed in then its time to check out the Greek nightlife. Bars and night life abound in Athens and there are new places to visit every week.

You will want to check with your concierge to be sure the venue is still in the same spot.
Most of the clubs are frequented by crowds under the age of 30 and these run lively music and entertainment throughout the night until about 3 am. Drinks run about 6 EUR but are very generous, and on weekends some clubs charge a cover. Most foreign tourists get in easily enough, although large groups of men may have a few problems when things are hopping.
