New Visit 20140828:
Since the "old Ipanema" moved to the center of the city at Hoppy Pub, Ipanema now is more a coffee bar. There are 2 taps and about 30-40 bottles with some Greek micros and some Belgian beers among them.
The owner loves beer and makes his own beer. Very good selection of beers. Apart from Greek micros, German and Belgian beers which is now something common in many Greek bars, you can find US, Dutch and Danish beers.
Nice ambiance, great music, friendly staff and great prices.

Many things have changed since the last visit of Fugitive to Ipanema beer-bar of Thessaloniki! A lot of new bottles of beers from Belgium, USA, German, Nederlands, Denmark, Norway, UK and so on ... make the final amount of beers to be very special Plus xtra special drafts, too and almost all the beers of Greek Microbreweries! Great place for drniking beer and relax with excellent music !! Service is perfect! You could also find some food there in a very good price !!!
After the opening of the Hoppy Pub, in the center of Thessaloniki, by the same owners, Ipanema turned into an all day coffee bar. Still there are a lot of beers to enjoy but not as before. There is a good selection of Greek micros, Belgian & German beers and always you can find some special craft beers as Brewdog, De Molen & Mikkeller. The ambiance is really nice and now everyone can enjoy the breathtaking view of this bar during the daytime. Good prices and really helpfulll stuff. Now the "brother" of Ipanema . the Hoppy Pub , is the craft beer place for beer lovers, that Ipanema used to be. Still it worth a visit for a beer if you íre around the area. You íll enjoy a beer and take a break in a really cozy place in the nature, with a view over the sea and city of Thessaloniki...

Its still a worth visiting place for the great view and the atmosphere.Its new brother the hoppy pub will take care of the beer business now,so do check this place in the center of the city.I would recommend this place for travelers that want to relax before their flight,its really close to the airport.

Visited twice in August. Nice garden for the greek hot summer nights. A lot of craft beers, not only from Europe but also from the States. Greek micros and Czech labels on tap. Very good prices (there is a take-away option with even lower price! I left the place with 15 bottles with me!). The cool beer geek behind the bar...is the owner!
Definitely the best beer bar in Greece. Iím from Athens and i really must say that thers no a same bar in capital. Ipanema have a plenty of beer/taps & bottle like mikkeller,de molen,flying dod and many many others some of them are really rare.Iím so happy living in tHessaloniki and have a good contact with the owner George Alexakis (a really beermaster) which can help you find the perfect beer for your tastes ;) Cheers guys
P.S.: new beer bar upcoming at the center of Thessaloniki. Do not miss it !!!!

Still a great bar though not the same as before in terms of beer choices...You can still find some nice beers from Belgium, Germany, Greece etc to enjoy but the selection is not as special as it used to be. It is definitely worth a visit while in the area, though.
Great ambience with rock music and wooden decoration. Great selection of craft beers as Mikkeller, De Molen, Port Brewing etc. And always some perfect craft beer on their taps. George the owner, is always there to help you with your choice. Definetely the paradise for the Greek beer geeks...
