Again, an almost impossible task… to name the best places for a drink in Thessaloniki. Famed for it’s after dark cocktail lounges, bars and clubs, the nightlife in Thessaloniki don’t sleep. Here are a few must-visit places to get you started.
Located in Kalamaria, this bar/restaurant has all you’ll need for a great night out. Cosy yet elegant, Les Zazous has a wonderful view to boot, that looks out along the Thermaic Gulf and the city of Thessaloniki. A DJ is often playing in the evenings and the restaurant transforms into a club at the weekend where you can dance the night away, accompanied by a fantastic cocktail menu that samples inspiring and exciting new flavours.
Mistral is a famous seaside bar in Thessaloniki and lives up to its reputation. Beautiful in summer or winter, the bar has an exceptionally beautiful interior that is cosy in the cold, and a gorgeous seafront view from the balcony which is opened up to the restaurant in summer. A bustling yet subdued ambience is found here all year round. Enjoy the extensive wine lists, spirits and cocktails with delicious treats brought to the table as you drink.
Located a short way out of the city towards the airport in Thermi, Boheme is easily one of the best bars in the city. Located by the beach with a great view out to sea you can start as early as you like at Boheme. Elegant décor, great list of foods, wines and cocktails, you’ll be sure to have a great time here. Bear in mind it gets very busy – so if you’re wanting to eat make sure you book a table!
Μία μέρα πιο κοντά σε μια ακόμα υπέροχη Παρασκευή!! Με το Θοδωρή, την Ελισάβετ και το Θέμη… με την πιο όμορφη πάρεα ως…
Till the sun goes up’ or ‘the bar that never stops’ – this is the place to end your evening because Berlin doesn’t ever sleep. Even if you arrive at 03:00 am you’ll be sure to find the place full and music blaring. Rather innocuous from the outside, don’t let that fool you. The bar is the place to go for music and dancing till the wee hours.
A must for any visitor, the floating bars are popular in Thessaloniki for their unique approach to the bar atmosphere. Entry onto the boats are free and the boats will take you around the Thermaic Gulf for around 30 minutes. Bear in mind that although entry is free you are expected to purchase a drink, which can be a little pricy than normal bars, but a small price to pay for the experience of having a drink on a pirate ship! Especially lovely lit up at night.
Just outside the heart of the city, this classic building is located just up from the promenade and has a lovely atmosphere if you’re looking for a cosy place to grab a few drinks. Snacks a-plenty for those who are drinking from the great range of cocktails, spirits and wines. Go upstairs for a more open and light area or downstairs for the dusky feel of a speakeasy bar. The building also looks lovely at night!
