At Psyri you will find some of Athens' hottest clubs and bars. Large and small, they play all types of music from Greek, rock and ethnic to Latin, pop and jazz. Psyri has become an Athenian favorite. A tour to Athens nightlife would not be complete without a visit to the industrial district of Gazi. Many art galleries, mainstream bars, restaurants, clubs and Greek nightclubs here (featuring live Greek pop singers), are trademarked by their industrial design as many of them are housed in remodeled -- and once abandoned -- factories. Gazi is one of the trendiest neighborhoods of Athens nightlife.
To truly experience modern Athens nightlife, we recommend spending a few hours at a Greek nightclub with live Greek music. You will find plenty of nightclubs with live Greek music along Syngrou Avenue and at the industrial strips of Iera Odos and Pireos Street in Gazi. In the summer months, the action moves to Poseidonos Avenue and the coastal towns of Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni.
