Athenian beer bar among the best in the world

After extensive research, Zach Mach, a beer bar owner from East Village, NYC, listed the best beer bars in the world, including Athens' The Local Bar among them.


Zach Mack is the owner of Alphabet City Beer Co., a craft beer store and bar in New York's East Village. He scoured the globe to find the 21 best, most knowledgeable and unique places to enjoy a beer on almost every continent, for Thrillist, a site looking for obscure and not very publicized places concerning food, drink, and travel.

Among places in Europe, the US and Japan, Mr. Mack has included a beer bar located in Chalandri, a northern suburb of Athens, in the 21 best ones in the world. Here's what he wrote about it:

"Those Greeks are at it again! First they invent democracy, and then they open up a quaint, cozy pub with a world-class beer selection. Their 20 draft lines and 100 available bottles showcase the comfort classics like AleSmith IPA and Sierra Nevada Narwhal, while still showing love to domestic breweries like Septem. Cross your fingers and try to catch them on one of their famous BBQ nights: it’s a literal sausage fest."

The small beer pub has received excellent reviews in sites such as TripAdvisor and Pinterest, from customers describing it as a small pub with great beer. If you want to sample it for yourselves, the address is: 25 Chaimanta st., Chalandri, Attica.
