A comfortable place, where the subtleties of craft brews are deeply appreciated by patrons and proprietor alike

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.

No nonsense Irish Pub with the deco to prove it. Very fitting music selection ranging from Celtic punk to soft jazz and soul depending on what time you walk in. But all that comes second since this pubís offering is its main weapon. 12 taps, with most of them showcasing the best the Greek Microbrewing scene has to offer while the rest are sporting some world class guest brews. Guest bottles from the best breweries come and go all the time as well making the selection even wider, but one needs to act fast to taste them. Two major pluses, the boss-man will suggest the perfect brew for you, no matter how vague the description of what you like is, and the fact that you walk in alone and before youíre done with the first pint a drinking pose has been formed and you find yourself discussing about all sorts of geo-socio-political topics (that somehow are all beer related). A definite must if you are either living or visiting Athens and love good beer.

HANDS DOWN! If youíre a beer enthusiast, this THE place you should visit! Cozy and full of ambience. Fotis and his crew are willing to help choose a fine ale of their exquisite collection. They know a great deal about beer. 12 taps, 3 out which are for guest ales, nice (allmost folkish, sometimes) music, crisp/clean atmoshere, since smoking is NOT allowed! Great variety of quality hand-crafted bottled-beers & the thing keeps getting better & better!!! If youíre into good beer, this a MUST palce for you!

The absolute best beer bar in Attica, if not Greece. Relaxed atmosphere, cool people, nice rock / punk music, great prices, 12 taps, 3 out of which are reserved for guest kegs.

The definitive, no-nonsense artisanal beer pub of Greece. The brews are more than rewarding, service that is both knowledgable beerwise and very attentive to even the slightest details that will increase a customerís enjoyment and of course a very joyful set of local characters that frequent the place. You can almost always spot the (D)odd Englishman sipping at a pint of ale away from olí Blighty! :) Very good atmosphere on big football nights too. Other sports typically displayed at the pubís tv include rugby and boxing. Sometimes local rubgy teams go to the pub to celebrate or to initiate new members and that is always fun to watch. Pleasant outdoor space for smokers and a highly unyielding policy against smoking indoors. Good thing that it serves no food, except for the odd pickled egg. It is a place to do some proper western drinking, not the typically eastern food and wine thing. You can go to the local chippy (there is a very good one) after your session in the pub. Certain new american style brews from greek artisanal microbrewries can only be found on tap at this place so it is strongly recommended for tourists who intend to steer clear of the touristy path of downtown Athens and wish to see how locals live, drink etc in the suburbs. Itís about 15min away from Ag. Paraskevi metro station on foot. Guest beer on tap for a limited number of days and the occasional unplugged gig should be expected too.

Re-reviewing after a decent time of visits!!!! Still the best place in Greece but grown even better with the addition of some excellent beers on tap (4-5 standard ones, most of which are Greek) or bottle, some bottles that come to Greece for the first (and probably the last) time. 1-2 always changing taps, hosting some EXCELLENT brews! The ambiance is great, the place is great, the music is great, the host (donít really like the word owner) is great, it has everything it needs!! Forgot: the customers are also great!!!
