BABA AU RUM ATHENS
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.
