Travelling solo in Athens next week

Hi everyone,

I'm travelling alone to Athens and I'm staying in a hotel near Omonia Square. Please can you recommend any good restaurants and nightclubs where I can go on my own, keeping in mind that I'm in my early 40s. Thank you.

Good evening CAROLAS

Follow the link to Omonia Square and you will see it has some bad recent reviews. I would be inclined to walk over to Monastiraki and perhaps on to Plaka which are the tourist hot-spots. You will need a taxi back as public transport stops around midnight.

If possible change the area you are staying in,it is not really dangerous but it is seedy and rundown.Go to Plaka,Syntagma,Acropolis areas.

About your original question check out the answers to the top q's about Athens on the right of this page,the most "in" area for clubbing and bars these days is AGIAS IRINIS SQUARE

I recommend the Attalos Hotel on Athinas St. It's one of the best budget accommodation in Athens that is clean, safe and centrally located to everything one goes to Athens for. Psiri which is right behind Athinas St. is a fine place to eat, shop and wander. It's outside the main tourist zones and has more of an edge to it.
