AUTHENTIC SPOT: VINTAGE BAR IN ATHENS

The unsuspected visitor of the historic center of Athens cannot miss the hundreds of colourful vintage bottles and lights that decorate the walls of “Brettos”.

Brettos is the oldest distillery in Athens and it started operating for the first time back in 1909. Since then, although it is now almost a century old, little has changed at Mr Brettos old-fashioned distillery. It still operates as a bar at this small, incredibly beautiful, charming and out of the time spot.

The first thing you notice is the beautiful décor of a wall full of colored bottles lit from behind in contrast with the old barrels full of spirits – that are still used.
