Cinema

An excellent summer-evening experience is taking in one of Athens’ outdoor cinemas. Films are not dubbed and the Greek translation appears in subtitles. You can purchase your tickets 15-20 minutes ahead of the screening to avoid the long queues. Usually there are two programs, one at 9 p.m., the other at 11 p.m. Seats are not numbered. Many open-air cinemas also have a garden with tables where you can have a snack or a drink while enjoying the film.

Nightclubs

Athens nightlife is big: cafeterias and bars all over the city become music bars with professional DJ's at night and they are too numerous to list here. The neighbourhoods to head for are: Syntagma, Kolonaki and Glyfada. Winter is the best time to enjoy the full range of after-dark entertainment since many establishments move to the coast during the summer months.
