Night life in Athens city


In Athens and other cities of Greece, there are a lot of places of entertainment with live music events. We call these places “bouzoukia” or Music Halls or Concert Halls. Bouzouki in Greek means the stringed musical instrument similar to a long mandolin. At “bouzoukia” you can watch one or more popular Greek singers and pop stars, who are presenting their songs and in some cases there are theatrical performances and dance shows, coming along with the artists. These places usually offer drinks and it is necessary to make a reservation in advance, in order to book a table (especially for reservations of Friday/Saturday night).

In this article, there will be a detailed presentation of Athenian “Bouzoukia” & Music Halls. A reference with a youtube video of a famous record of the artists will be presented in combination with each place or Music Hall or Concert Hall. Unfortunately most of these spaces do not provide information in English and they are being introduced through facebook. In this case you can use google translator to understand specific info, concerning live events and performances. Let’s start our tour!
