Fodor's Expert Review Stoa Athanaton

Monastiraki Music Clubs

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

“Arcade of the Immortals" has been around since 1930, housed in a converted warehouse in the meat-market area. Not much has changed since then. The music is enhanced by an infectious, devil-may-care mood and the enthusiastic participation of the audience, especially during the best-of rembetika afternoons (3:30–7:30). The small dance floor is always jammed. Food here is delicious and very reasonably priced, but liquor is expensive (althought the affordable house wine is good and a bargain at €6 per kilo). Make reservations for the performances, when the orchestra is led by old-time rembetika greats. Open Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, this landmark is closed in the summer months, so always call before visiting.
