The impression one gets when in Athens is that the city never sleeps.Many people say that Athens lives by night.No matter what the time, you can always find something exciting to do. Athenians are night-loving people.They enjoy the night and go to bed only when the sun goes up.
The visitors will surely enjoy exciting nights, full of fun and music as the city is full of bars, clubs, cafes, restaurants and taverns for every mood, every style and every circumstance.
The Greek way to go out would begin with a coffee in one of the many cafes around Athens.
The night would go on in the downtown areas of Plaka, Thisseion and Psiri or the seaside suburbs of Glyfada and Vouliagmeni. There one can find an endless array of restaurants and tavernas serving from Greek traditional to international food, where live bouzouki usually accompanies the meal.
Therefore the night would close in one of the many nightclubs and bars of the town, where you can choose among all kinds of music, like live music, disco, jazz, pop, heavy metal and hip hop. But if you prefer the absolutely greek way you will make your way to one of the many "bouzouksidika"(clubs offering live music based on the bouzouki instrument), where flower throwing is the method of expressing delight and appeciation of entertainment.
Finally, if you are the kind of person that after a night full of fun, entertainment and dancing want to catch a quick bite, you will not be disappointed, as Athens is full of grill houses or creperies that stay open all night long.
