Wine bars in Athens cover a variety of styles, mainly relaxed and casual, in some cases more elegant and high end. Serving mostly locally produced wines, which combine ideally with snacks or dishes prepared from traditional Greek cuisine, they offer a reasonably priced solution for lunch, aperitifs or evening entertainment. Some have existed for many years, before the concept became fashionable, and have been focal points for wine lovers, while others have followed the trend, or developed from wine cellars to bars. Some operate also as restaurants, with wine as the central idea, around which the menu is developed and are also venues for specific wine tasting evenings, organized by producers.
