This is Barrett.

A cafe, bar and exhibition space in the centre of Athens.


Barrett operates since July 2015 on a renovated two-storey building that dates back to 1900. It opens at 11am every day and closes at around 4am every night morning. During those hours it serves coffee, tea, homemade lemonades, draft beers, cocktails and straight liquor.

On its walls local artists showcase their latest projects, whether these are paintings, photographs or collages. And on its decks resident DJs select alt.rock, rock 'n' roll, soul, jazz and bluesy tunes every day from 8:30PM
