The Bar in Front of the Bar

Athens, Greece

Unconventional might be the best way to describe The Bar in Front of the Bar, a streetside cocktail bar launched on Petraki Street in the heart of Athens by friends and cocktail vets Alexandros Tselepis, Konstantinos Theodorakopoulos and Simeon Papanikolaou. With no indoor space, and only patio seating, the bold and quirky concept infuses humour into its attention-grabbing design, which is marked by large, sprawling sans-serif text messages that change frequently (e.g. "We Serve Humans Too," or "Something To Talk To Your Therapist About".) To keep the energy even more fresh, the bar offers just a small selection of cocktails that rotate every day, made with a zero-waste mentality. Pro-tip: the bar behind the bar is a speakeasy from the same crew, called Rumble in the Jungle.
