The Clumsies - A Bar Hidden Away
The Clumsies is a newly opened, prestigious bar housed in an old 1919 neoclassical mansion, located in central Athens near Monastiraki and Panepistimio Metro stations.  It’s actually hidden off a small square on Praxitelous street, at number 30.

"[A] bartender is not only judged by the impeccable execution of a recipe, but also by the way he connects with customers." Nikos Bakoulis, the co-owner of The Clumsies, used to bartend in 2012 with fellow co-owner Vassilis Kyritsis. This was their philosophy – and the Clumsies was born as follows:

" …bring them [Vassilis and Nikos] into contact with three industrious businessmen in the hospitality sector: Lefteris Georgopoulos, Thanos Tsounakas, and Giorgos Kaissaris. Stir gently, then serve."

The Room
The two roomed private area is like stepping into a ‘Gentleman’s Club’ and can host up to ten people for an evening.  Decked out with feature fireplace, bookcase,  billiard table and vinyl LPs, the mood here is somewhat more formal. With your own private bar tender, Nikos can create a concoction of cocktails, tailor made to suit the individual: rum, vodka or gin based with a variety of ingredients.
