The Greek bouzoukia are the most well known internationally and probably bring images of Zorba the Greek to our minds. These venues in Athens have their base in the areas of Bournazi and Peristeri.
There, you will find delightful natives dancing on top of tables and bars to popular Greek traditional and island songs.
Every corner of these suburbs have bouzoukia that provide live music, wine and spirits for visitors to enjoy and cry out, "Opa"!
