ENOXES – Best bar/restaurant/café in Thessaloniki, Greece

The newest venue to be added to New Destinations Network.

The best bar/café/restaurant in the whole of Thessaloniki has to be ENOXES or its name in English which is ‘Guiltiness’. The owner Stefanos has made it his labour of love, by up-cycling all the furniture, fixtures and fittings and filling the place with work from local artists. Mismatched cutlery, cups, plates, with a similar theme for the tables, chairs and benches. The balcony’s look out on to a square, park, shops and an archeologic site, so even the views are mixed. The music is carefully selected to be different all the time and made-up of a cool laid back sounds, with the occasional rock selection to mix it up. The food is of a snack/tapas style so again, so nice and easy, plus all locally sourced and that includes the beer and wine.

If you are in Thessaloniki you have visit ENOXES – it is located in Navarinou Square – find it and feel guilty about passing away hours in there chilling and enjoying the atmosphere!
