Three spirits – Three bars.
First Athens Rum Festival and Athens Bar Show
I am looking forward to return to Athens in a few days. This is at the moment my favourite bar city and the upcoming First Athens Rum Festival organised by my beloved Baba Au Rum guys is a Must. Afterwards the Athens Bar Show will take place. This year 58 companies in 60 different kiosk participate in Athens Bar Show. Among others you will find spirit importers and distributors, bar products and service providers, equipment and professional uniform designers. There will be also many presentations and seminars and you will find experts from all over the world.

Odori Vermuteria Di Atene
The line up in the bars and the concentration of great bartender like Simone Caporale, Gabriele Manfredi and more. Check out the schedule of Odori Vermuteria Di Atene.
Baba Au Rum, No. 40 of the World’s 50 Best Bars. No.1 of the Barstalkers List 😉
Last but not least the line up at my very favourite bar Baba au Rum is amazing. There will be Antonio Naranjo Nevares & Maros Dzurus from the HIMKOK BAR, OSLO behind the stick. And the best dressed bartender with the nicest smile Mr. Remy Savage, and of course with wonderful concoctions.
42 Bar – Hitch Hicker’s Guide to the Galaxy
This year there are two bars from Athens on the World’s 50 Best Bars, but there is also one bar from Cyprus Lost & Found Drinkery. The team can be found on November 7th in the 42 bar, when “The Lunatics have taken over the Asylum” . Unfortunately my articel about this bar is only available in German but I had a very good time there and still the nice menu at home (it was a present!).
This will be a busy week for me. Maybe this map will help a bit, or have a look at my past adventures in Athens . Oh, Espresso Tonic at The Underdog – delicious.
