Many find it superb, while others think it is a bit overrated. Either way, it is an alternative to spend your afternoons. It is nothing less than the James Joyce Irish Pub. Situated in the heart of Athens, offers a beautiful perception of the Irish culture.
As you enter the pub, you immediately get a glimpse of the moody and dark ambiance but at the same time the warmness of the place becomes noticeable. The cozy sofas and the native speaking staff make you feel comfortable and like you are at home.
The pictures around the walls transfer you to the great old Irish pubs as well the music, food and drinks reveal the contemporary side of Ireland. The menu is a combination of the Greek cuisine and some of the traditional Irish favorites such as the Irish Breakfast and Fish & Chips, in affordable prices.
The wooden long bar that is extended at the right side of the pub gives you the chance to discover a wide selection of Irish and world whiskies and beers. And if you ask me a traditional Guinness beer and the Classic Nachos are a great combination for an evening visit to the pub with your friends or even colleagues. If you’re lucky, you might come across a football match and taste the way Irish and Greeks create an atmosphere similar to that in Britain.
So, if you’d like to find out more on your own there is nothing else you can do but just visit the James Joyce Irish Pub in Astiggos 12, Thiseio. And always bare in mind their motto “At the James Joyce, it’s a place where there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met”.
