    • Ouzo Melathron

      For lovers of lamb
      Although the narrow side alley by the market next to Aristotelous Square has a somewhat touristy feel, it's mainly young locals who frequent this establishment. That's because besides the usual mezedes, the lamb served here is superb – grilled or in a sweet wine sauce. Guests are served quickly by friendly staff.

    • Ergon

      Greek delicacies as a mission
      A few friends once followed their calling: They wanted to collect the best Greek recipes and ingredients from all over the country and bring the resulting delicacies to the wider world. «Ergon Greek Deli and Cuisine» was the result, a business that today has branches throughout Europe. You can see this concept for yourself in the restaurant and shop of the same name right in the middle of Thessaloniki.

    • Hamodrakas

      Treasures of the sea
      In 1926, Leonidas Hamodrakas opened the city's first fish tavern. And lovers of fish still return to the same place. While they're enjoying their grilled octopus, brill stuffed with spinach or mussels in a garlic and white wine sauce, they can gaze across the sea and towards the «Kara-Bournou» lighthouse.

    • I Giannoula

      At grandmother's table
      If you take a look through the window into this little tavern during the morning, you'll see Jjaja preparing vegetables at one of the tables. Since 1974, this Greek woman who is now in her 80s has been busy conjuring up only the best for her guests' tables. She most likes to explain personally what specialities she's prepared. Those who enjoy the right music to go with their traditional home-style cooking can feed a few coins into the jukebox.

    • Kitchen Bar

      Chilling by the port
      Pier Number One always attracts the locals. That's because it's the site of one of their favourite haunts. From early till late, the Kitchen Bar serves salads, grilled fish and meat dishes and desserts. You can sit either in the exciting old warehouse around the open kitchen, or outside by the water with a view of the skyline.

    • Mon Frere

      All in white
      On a quiet corner right in the middle of the city, you're sitting in an oasis in white: White chairs and white tables, white walls and white crockery are arranged almost geometrically. The café is a little bit similar to a French bistro and is very populular with young locals. You can order various types of speciality coffee, a drink or sweets.

    • Kafodio Elliniko

      Old Greek coffee culture
      This café on a quiet street lined with many trees looks like a «kafeneio». That's an old Greek coffee house from days gone by. Regulars of all ages enjoy drinking the black pick-me-up here during the morning, or meet in the evening when Greek musicians perform. Those wanting to retreat to a quiet corner to read will find a large library upstairs.

    • Lotos Music

      Merry, cheerful, loud
      Old and young alike meet here for a beer. From time to time there'll be a game of darts going on, and a few legs will be moving to classic or alternative rock music. And it's been like that for over 30 years. Locals feel at home in the Lotos. Things can get rather lively here late at night.

But you'll also find international bands here. From time to time, visitors can enjoy experimental theatre or art exhibitions.

      Social animals with staying power
      If you want to have fun all night, you'll find others doing the same at this club. With cocktail in hand, start off by taking in the special interior decoration: The plush red fabrics, the opulent chandeliers, the many mysterious staircases and corners, and countless photos and posters of film stars on the wall. Different DJs get people up on their feet dancing.
