Athens downtown is always an ideal choice to live a unique experience in your own city. You can either stroll around to guaint paving alleys of Plaka area which makes you feel like you are on an island while exploring Anafiotika or you may walk towards the Acropolis museum and head down to Thisio or even to reach Monastiraki and Gazi areas via Ermou street for endless window shopping covering the most demanding shoppers’ tastes.
In a small distance, the Royal Gardens, which lie around Vouli, always capture the eye. This remarkable oasis in the heart of the city offers the opportunity to enjoy nature, relax and wander within the rare kinds of trees and plants or you can just ponder to beautiful benches gazing at Zappion Megaron.
The picturesque arcade next to Syntagma Square on Othonos street, where “The Trap Athens” is located, always lure us. It is a point of reference for the passerby who wants to relax and enjoy delicious coffee or combinations of Greek appetizers accompanied by Greek destillations, as a result of the marvelous collaboration with the excellent and specialized in this type of kitchen "MeZen". For alcohol lovers there are also variety of choices in cocktails by the experienced bartenders. Sunday brunch is definitely a “must eat” experience. This time, after an enjoyable walk in the gardens of Zappeion, we continue with a delightful and classic Old Fashioned cocktail, based on our favorite aged rum "Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva”.
Planning our next excursion was already a thing;maps and discussions about which area we will be visiting next Saturday could not have had a better companion than a classic cocktail with a mix of flavors such as sweet, citrus notes, rum the Angostura bitter. “Trapped” to the coziest place, surrounded by our loved ones and with a glass of the finest drinks on our hands a marvellous day has reached to its end with the most glorious way.
