Fodor's Expert Review Brettos

Plaka Bars/Pubs

With walls adorned with brightly lighted bottles in all colors of the spectrum, Brettos is a dated choice for most locals and is mainly popular among tourists who have seen photos of it over the years. Locals who still choose to come here do so to relish the memories of the oldest distillery in town (going strong since 1909) and the second-oldest bar in the whole of Europe. The huge barrels store head-spinning spirits produced on the premises even today—ouzo, cognac, liqueurs (like top picks cinnamon or mango), tsipouro, and more. Order a mezedes platter to accompany your beverage of choice.
