One of the best beer bars in Athens. Huge selection of beers, the place is smoking free and the prices are really good.

This exquisite little beer bar is cosy, meticulously decorated and completely smoke-free. The music is pleasant and in no way distracting. The owner, Fotis, is consistently pleasant and admirably knowledgeable. I have no qualms whatsoever about letting him suggest which beer I should have, especially since he seems to have the ability to create a mental beer profile for each regular customer and commit it to his memory. Yeah, heís a freak. The range of beers available is truly something to behold, especially in a city like Athens, where beer bars favouring craft beer can be counted on one hand. The guest beers on tap (seemingly changing every weekend) have thus far been nothing less than exceptional. Very reasonably priced too. I almost hate giving a perfect score, but I do so unreservedly; especially in the hope that this little place will serve as an inspiration as well as the standard for comparison for all Athens beer bars - hopefully - to come.

Local is no doubt the best beer bar in the northern suburbs of Athens.The owner (Fotis) leaves nothing to chance (even now that the pub has its fanatic clientele) - from beer selection and service to music and hygiene. A cozy place overall - reminds me of English pubs - no smoking inside (thanks to the greek weather, you can smoke in the alley without freezing even in winter) is educating a new generation of beer lovers. Just respect - keep up the good work (98/100 just to motivate you to get even better) !

An excellent pub - and this is the Londoner in me doing the talking. Proper selection of craft beers with evident respect for microbreweries. Members of staff are great fun and very willing to share their knowledge. The location cannot be faulted, the little courtyard is great for warm nights. Inside itís one of the few places in Athens where the anti-smoking rule stands and you can actually smell the hops rather than the smoke. Casks keep rolling so youíll find yourself going back again and again.

This place turned me into a beer lover. For those who know me, that just about says it all. For those who donít, it should suffice to say that whenever I long for that "cheers" ambiance (yeah, Iím that old) this is the place to go. And lately itís happening quite often. Give it a shot. Find out for yourself!

All good things come to those who wait, they say. And waiting for Fotis, The Local Pub landlord, to announce the coupling of the next batch of imported craft beers on the three guest taps does certainly confirm the phrase.

 A small and cosy place, located just off the trendy bar expanse of Chalandri (a smart Athens suburb) that oozes character and sports a most welcoming atmosphere. Decorated to a British/Irish standard with nice, ear-friendly music, it is the "local" that attracts punters from every corner of Athens thanks to its meticulously curated selection of craft beers from all over the world. There are 3 guest taps that rotate fortnightly (or even weekly at times), another 10 with resident Greek microbrewery creations, as well as some universal standards, and a vast selection of bottles. When the conversation inevitably comes to beer, Fotis is strongly opinionated: "We want to give our customers the opportunity to taste good beer, thatís all. And good beer doesnít come from the big commercial breweries, Iím afraid.", he says as he sips on a pint of Septemís excellent A.C.E. With its friendly (smoke-free) atmosphere, the great variety on offer and the surprisingly reasonable prices, The Local Pub is every beer enthusiastís haven. This is indeed the best beer spot in Greece, bar none.
