Juan Rodriguez Bar: From Panama with love!

Juan Rodriguez Bar: From Panama with love!

Katerina Rigkou

In a place, in the narrow Pallados street in Psyrri.. . colonial style, wooden painted walls, retro lamps were all handmade from scratch and narrate, created by Alex Petraki and Vivian Dimitrakopoulou (Belle Amie, Monsieur Cannibale, Noel, Upupa Epops), Juan Rodriguez was a slave who managed to shake off his shackles and arrive in Athens making his dream come true that is a bar reminding him of his home country but far away from it and he tells , in the best way, his story...

Obviously, it's not a real person but a figment of the imagination of Armanlina Antonopoulou (The 7 Jokers) and Kostas Lucas (Paliatsos) who joined forces and realized their idea for a new all-day destination.

This all-day place welcomes us in the morning with authentic Thracian coffee prepared slowly in the embers, while we are greatly impressed by the list of cocktails (prices from 7 to 9 €!) which is divided into three categories.

Spyros Anagnostou's card of punches, the pre - bottled cocktails category offers pre - bottled cocktails containing two to three spirits and are aged in oak barrels while most of the options are in the category of twisted classics, "experimenting" with recipes...

Great emphasis has also been given on the dining which really makes a difference as it is one of the few, if not the only, bar that serves food until 02:30! The dishes created by Dionysis Papanikolaou are ideal for serving at the bar!

The value for money menu is based on Mediterranean and Greek cuisine with emphasis on quality ingredients and the taste.

Exquisite are also the suggestions for breakfast! In any case, leave some rooms at the end of your meal to try out some of the great desserts such as the… twisted millefeuille and the homemade ice cream with organic milk amongst others! Daily from 09:00.

Highlights: Juan Rodriguez is characterized by African American music choices, every night there is a different DJ while every Wednesday a surprise awaits us!
Every weekend the party starts at noon!

Must taste: The breakfast with savory and sweet options such as organic jams, cold cuts and cheese platters, honeycomb, dried fruit and rice pudding!
