Boheme Bourgeois: Wine and Gourmet Snacks

A wine bar with an exclusively Greek drinks list.


LOCATION

In up-and-coming Koukaki, two blocks from Syngrou Avenue and directly accessible from Fix metro station.

THE ATMOSPHERE

Decked with enormous glass windows, atmospheric Art Deco-themed design and unique, handmade ​​furniture, the new wine bar is the toast of the town among bohemians and the bourgeoisie.

THE FOOD

Wine is the central theme of BoBo (as this place is known), so simple bar food is the accompaniment. But their ingredients are of very high quality and sourced from the famed food market of Alexandris in Ilioupoli. We tried two nicely presented salads, small and large selections of Greek cheese and cold cuts with toasted bread.

Some of what we tried was only so-so, while other items were more interesting, such as the Verdikousa Nivato cream cheese with caramelized onions or the Cretan Apaki smoked ham with tomato sauce and yogurt.

The Kalamata Lalagia (fried pastry curls with olive oil) were a nice idea, served with Cretan Gruyere cheese, lemon and olives, and the tart of the day made with Zea flour dough was also very good.

THE CELLAR

Wine dominates the drinks list at BoBo, which is 100% Greek. Mainstream options and alternatives are evenly divided. It’s a true journey through Greek vineyards with several different wineries represented. More than 70 labels are showcased, out of which around 25 come served in glasses of 75 or 150 ml.

THE BILL

The prices of the wines are what should be expected of a wine bar ‒ bottles are around 20 to 30 €, and glasses start at 2.50 up to 7 €. Expect to pay  about 15-20 € per person for two glasses of wine and appetizers.
