BABA AU RUM ATHENS

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE - Rachel Howard

XIf I had to pick one joint that sums up the late-night so­cial scene, it’s this trop­i­cally tinged boozer. Louche smok­ers and dis­cern­ing drinkers spill out on to the pedes­trian al­ley. In­side, the dé­cor is a mash-up of mid-cen­tury modern with a tiki twist, and the sum­mery sound­track – from reg­gae to rumba – is just as eclec­tic. Nat­u­rally, rum’s the thing to or­der: go for any of the sig­na­ture daiquiris with house­blended botan­i­cals. Lively but laid-back, hip but un­pre­ten­tious, Baba au Rum is a pi­o­neer of the resur­gent spirit of Athens.
