A very small and cosy bar in the city center. It’s a celebration of gin culture. And yes, both the drinks and the service are excellent and the people are very friendly.

Loved this little gin joint. Staff extremely helpful and friendly, and with so many gins to choose from it was just heaven. If you love G&T go there. Great music too

Nothing but good things to say about this place. Their drink menu was inventive. The guys making the drinks are master's of their craft. They are as fun to watch as the drinks are enjoyable. If you enjoy gin, don't miss this spot!

Definitely worth a visit if you are partial to G&T. Large selection of gins and tonics but more importantly Alex, the barman, took time to talk us through the gin menu, philosophy, politics and local restaurants worth a visit. A very enjoyable aperitif! Thank you...More

We walked to The Gin Joint last night at around 7 and found the place fairly empty, luckily ((it's small). Initially staff seemed unfriendly but we figured out fairly quickly that since The Gin Joint is not in the heart of the tourist area the...More

off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
