Nightlife in Athens: A Lively and Cosmopolitan Scene

From the celebrated, glamorous  Island,  to the high class favorite dining and dancing  Akrotiri DC on the coast,  or the popular underground  techno Six Dogs in downtown Monastiraki,  Athens offers a wide selection of  nightlife, satisfying all preferences and tastes.  Jazz by well known international musicians at all time classic Half Note in the neighborhood of Mets, gigs and karaoke at Kitty Cat,    imaginative cocktails and a fantastic view at central Three Sixty, an amazing terrace at Bios, live events at Rock n Roll in Kolonaki, Nu disco and Electric House at Pixi, with impressive audiovisual effects, art and entertainment at urban style Fouar,  it’s hard to choose. Most clubs have their own faithful clientele, which depends on age, musical preferences and an exclusive fashion trend code which attracts certain social styles. Dress code can be important at the more posh places, whilst others are more casual. Drinks are an important feature of all clubs and some include a restaurant. In summer nights are even longer and the clubs on the beach become even more attractive  places to cool off. The lively atmosphere and the musical selections create the ideal atmosphere for great entertainment.
