One of the best places to enjoy good food in the city is Agioli Restaruant at Nikis avenue.
Very close to Aristotelous square, this restaurant is known for good quality food, reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere and amazing city view !
There are actually 3 different food menu options to choose from. On the ground floor you can find the beer house with a big selection of Greek breweries and mostly meet food choices to accompany them. On the other side of the ground floor you will find the “ouzeri” with seafood options.
Top floor is my personal favourite though, because nothing beats the balcony sea view from white tower to the port. The food choices here have big variety. You can choose excellent set menus or order a la carte. There are also many healthy food options, vegetarian dishes as well as organic !
After a healthy meal you can give an excuse to yourself to enjoy the delicious desserts !
Bon Apetit !
FEAST is the new fund raising concept in town that intents to support local creativity.
It is not just support actually ! The concept is Eat, Drink and Vote !
If you are living abroad you might have heard of the concept already, but for us locals of Thessaloniki it is totally new, so let me explain.
What is FEAST?
… a live crowdfunding event
… a guerilla dinner in unexpected places
… an opportunity to support the creative class of Thessaloniki
… a solidarity act. After all you can’t make it all on your own!
… a place to bring together the creative community
In other words, people meet for a casual dinner, where they attend presentations of new business concepts for a small fee. At the end of the night the best concept, as voted by all participants, wins the amount of money collected.
The first Thessaloniki FEAST will take place at ApoDec
Thursday 10th of April 2014 at 20.00
Check out the Facebook event page
10 euros including dinner and drinks !
The people managing this new concept are Argiro Barata and Niki Vouimta two very friendly and energetic girls I had the pleasure to meet to help them choose the appropriate natural tableware for the event.
If you are in town don’t miss your chance to mingle, network and have fun!
Our city needs events that support local creativity and since we are also well known for partying and having fun, I surely hope to see you all there !
The International Marthon Run “Alexander the Great” will be held for the 9th year in Thessaloniki. Every year more and more people join this event, and looks like this year they are breaking all records ! The city celebrates one more time and everybody, young or older, of any fitness level will join for the good cause.
The International Marathon “ALEXANDER THE GREAT”, refers to the route Pella-Thessaloniki. Pella is the ancient capital of Macedonia and the birthplace of the great Commander, whereas Thessaloniki is the modern Hellenic metropolis of Macedonia. This International Marathon which symbolises one of the most recognizable personalities of humanity, Alexander the Great, is not just a major and International sporting event. It is a path in history, a path in ancient Greek culture, a Path full of Greece.
Besides the 43 km marathon which is for athletes and people who actually have a good fitness level, most people join the 5km and 10km which are very easy to follow at any pace. Join the event this Sunday 6th of April !
