As cool as the reviews say. Go there if you can. The Plaka is a very big and a very busy place but after a few days it can become hum-drum. Brettos is unique and world renowned and worth the visit

The sampling of the various alcohols on offer was a very enjoyable and memorable experience. I was lucky to meet the owner Pavlos who is an amazing host. Visiting the Brettos Bar should be a must inclusion in your itenary when in Athens.

Great casual spot with excellent service. Decor is super cool and so is the fact it doesn't allow smoking!

Super cool retro ambience! Very nice bartenders who will explain the different items on their list, if you ask. Definitely recommended. Loved the colored bottles decorating the shelves.

Bar is a lot smaller than it appears in photos, but a great experience! Big drink selection, with many authentic Greek spirits. In the center of the tourist-y area, but don’t let that deter you!
