Strolling & strolling around Athens; this is what we do. This week has been pretty busy for M.E. in the City girls.

E.leni has been talking about a hot fashion spot near her haunts. The “Dressing Bar” is hidden in the southern suburb of Ilioupoli and combines fashion with fun in a whole new way. It’s the only place in Athens where you can indulge into shopping and drink your cocktail as well (perfect combination, don’t you think?). Vasiliki Palioura and Popi Ioannatou opened “Dressing Bar” in 2008. «Our concept was to present Greek, talented designers with drink brands in a very special way”.
So, we visited this beautiful fashion concept store and, of course, we didn’t manage to resist neither to the refreshing “cointreaupolitan”-their very own cocktail suggestion – neither to the beautiful clothes. Not to mention that we found some great pieces to wear on our Saturday date…

We loved the performance with the great music and lighting. There we also saw our common friend Ioanna with her brother and boyfriend, so we decided to continue our night in one of the most popular bars in Athens.
“Briki” is situated in Mavili Square, in the centre of Athens. Very small, but quite special regarding its interior (and exterior) design, “Briki” has managed to gather people from all over the city. The funky jazz alternated the rock music, and the waiters were coming and going with heady cocktails and spirits. Somewhere between the second and the fourth shot (I woke up the next day with a painful head ache), we actually discovered the meaning of life (at least for us)…
Reveling in with good friends and lots of drinks, always in the City!
