Snapshot: Athens, Greece

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Athens.

They don't even renovate their buildings... fuck sake.


What are one’s first impressions of Athens?

The first thing one notices about Athens is the women. They are drop dead gorgeous.  In this authors opinion, the Greek girls give other Mediterranean women a run for their money and have superior genes.  The second thing you notice is Athens – it’s fucking expensive. I’m talking in excess of €6 for a drink. WTF? Isn’t this country bankrupt? I’m supporting their economy by just showing up, the least they could do is pour me a fucking pint for under a fiver.

What are the women like?

Super sexy but slightly up their own ass, especially when you compare them to their counterparts in Thessaloniki up north.

Where should I go at night time?

We went to Gazi – a big square with tons of night spots. It’s about one hours drunken stumble from the main tourist area near the Acropolis. Lots of choice but a bit pretentious, if I was to return I would check out Psirri. In Gazi, the best strip is a street called Triptolemou. Avoid Tapas bar unless you like penis in your ass. There is a cool bar adjacent to Cabana 41 but I can’t remember the name… pity we got kicked out for climbing on the roof to perform the YMCA dressed as Mexican Pirates. Security didn’t seem to see the funny side of it…

Any other recommendations?

Screw pricey beers, just buy cans in the kiosks and drink on Triptolemou street, there are plenty of people and it’s great for approaching girls.

The Bottom Line

Fuck Athens. See the Acropolis and go to Thessonlinki, it’s a lot more fun in my opinion and a great place to get your Greek flag.

    I will only say one thing Greece is one of the only nation on this earth to make out wıth two girls at the same time and yes I agree that Athens is bit expensive and girls are spoiled but saloniki is heaven for horny idiots lol

      sorry dude but this is a nice fantasy of yours, greek women are only make out with greek men, of course if they were really ugly make yes,but anonymously writting this we all know that is your mastrubation fantasy, cheers.

    I keep telling other Europeans that Greece is about 40% more expensive than Germany and nobody believes me. This is ridiculous, it is actually cheaper to buy things from Germany and pay DHL to have them transported all the way down here, than buy anything at all from here. Taxis are expensive, shops are expensive, food is ridiculously expensive, drink is expensive, and clubbing is expensive. We are supposedly “bankrupt” yet money is flowing on the streets, man. Also, lol at “scrumptuous” I had to open the Oxford Learner’s dictionary to find that word.

    Also, in my opinion (I am a local) Turkish women are more beautiful than ours. They have more exotic genes and some have got Central Asian admixture which makes them hotter than our own boring typical Southern Euro whitey chicks.

    I dunno Leo… I’ve been to Turkey twice and the only time I ever saw a hot chick was in Taksim (Istanbul) and they were far and few between.
    I lived in Athens for one month and also lived in Istanbul for one month so I think I know what I’m talking about here 😉
    Turkish women are not exactly well known for their beauty.
    I have to agree with the author… Athens was a big surprise as far as hot girls go… on par with Barcelona etc.
    Not as off the hook as Serbia, Romania etc. but still held it’s own respectably!
    Gazi is a great place to drool over girls… and the prices seem to be coming down there… I found a few bars in Gazi with 3 Euro pints, which is cheap for Athens.

    Greece can be expensive going out. If you get to know a bar/barman and they like you then you will get a lot of free drinks. Thats how greece works. Eating out is srill real cheap tho. 15 euros with wine per head with mates. Note, Tax on bars here is huge so that’s why drinks are pricey. The city has some great bars though. BIOS, nixon,cabethon, tsin tsin, briki, 7 jokers. The last two go at 3am and its pick up central. Just say you you have moved to Athens. The quality can be shit though but I have picked up a 9 in there before.

    Greek girls…..ahhhh wow. Outside of summer on the islands it can be rough. Its just about knowing the way. I’ve cracked it and many times I’ve gone on Tinder’s or dates and nailed first or second night. Its not simple though. Lots of no replies to texts and dates cancelled. Just act like you dont give a fuck. It works. Trust me.

    For going out and getting a ONS…..its really hard work but possible.. Day game I haven’t tried here as do well anyway. It’s easy to get numbers in bars. There are millions of bars. Good ones too. Just expensive to get pissed. Stick to wine as its 4euros and big glasses.

    Its a great city just give it time. I love Athens. The women are smoking! Funny thing is I find Thessolaniki harder to pull haha. Although I’ve met thess girls here and nailed in one date.

    Enjoy the mezadaki guys

    Athens is so dull, only worth spending a day there.

    • Crocky October 15, 2016 at 11:41 pm #

      You are nuts. It’s got some of the coolest designed bars, weather Rocks, islands close at hand, two different ski resorts (small) with ten euro week tickets and just 2 hours away from athens, smoking hit chicks. Centre is gorgeous. Plaka, Thesio, agora and it has acropolis – best anceint city view in the world bar none!

      I live here and live it……lived in Australia, Italy, Cape town, Argentina, Spain and Israel too. Greek girls are hard work though. Enough tourists around when times are tough

    Remember my experience might be different than yours but this was my experience. Im here in athens its novaround 16 degrees. You can see all tourist stuff in a weekend im here for 6nights. Cant comment on nightgame but bars are in gazi. Daygame ive seen ocassional 8s nice peach bums but no 9s. Disapointed in the city. Id recomend stating in syntagma area as thats the main place for day and guttergame. Id come in sept. Heard august is 40degrees. If you want to get laid id recomend 2weeks here depnding on your skills but if you just wanna see athens id just do 2days. Riga and budapeat are 3-5 x better in my opinion i love curvy busty peach bumed girls. There are a few here but not 100s around they are the minority. Heard mykonos is more beautifu and thats from a local greek i went on a date with. Id download a fake gps and start pipeline girls 2weeks before you come here on tinder. Like a say maybe sept is better. Gotter more girls. I was told aug is when greek girls leave to go vacation. Hope this info helps. Fellow nomads
