Taverna Plaka, Neighborhood of the Gods

“Taverna” is the Greek word for tavern…. not just a restaurant or a bar, but BOTH – with entertainment, dancing and music! How should you act at a Taverna? Well, generally you gather with friends and family at Taverna Plaka to eat, drink, converse, laugh, dance and party! So, have fun, enjoy and share your plate with a friend.

What is Plaka? It is Athens’ oldest and most colorful neighborhood. It is at the heart of the city and as you walk down its stone-paved, narrow streets, you feel as if you’ve traveled back in time – experiencing first-hand the history of Athens and its people.

The Taverna in the front room accommodates larger parties and is available for private dining events. The Taverna also features a full bar and room for dancing.
