“If you want to get to know a city, look at its walls. Athens might be a mess but there is creativity.” So says one of the best-known Athenian street artists, the elusive INO.

Diving into Psirri -
Not to be unduly nautical about it, but plunging into Psirri is like a deep dive into a different kind of Athens than you probably new existed. Sure, you knew about the ancient ruins and maybe trendy Kolonaki, but Psirri is home to scruffy cultural verve all its own—and you’re a part of it for as long as you’re here. This is a compact and largely self-contained, thoroughly urban universe where hipster cafés and bars collide with antique shops full to bursting with quirky merchandise, vintage record stores and busy craftsmens’ shops than you could ever take in on a single walk.

A warm welcome to 18 Micon Street !!!

We are excited to have opened our doors and look forward to meeting you. Our concept was conceived by a group of young professionals who couldn’t help but notice that their city’s identity had shifted in recent years and that this evolution had been largely ignored by the hospitality industry. We decided to reclaim the life of an historic storehouse by creating a unique destination. With great respect for our buildings past we look towards the future. Our desire to open a dialogue with those planning a stay in Athens led to the creation of our blog where we will share all our insider tips for an incredible experience in Athens. Sit down with a cup of coffee and stay a while, won’t you?
