One of the most intriguing secrets of Arachova, ready to charm whoever discovers it. Doctor John chill out bar is found a stone’s throw from Lakka Square, in a quaint alley right behind Cine Celena. It is an atmospheric bar, which offers its visitors a unique option for entertainment.
First of all, it is housed in a historic building, a beautiful stone mansion of the 19th century where Ioannis Mantas, the doctor of Arachova, lived and practiced his profession, after graduating from the Medical School of Athens in 1895. Hence the name "Doctor John".
What is special here is that the place has not lost in any way its homely atmosphere, quite the opposite. As soon as you enter, you will feel like you are a member of a family. The music here moves in the 60s, with the only Greek music being art songs. It is perhaps the only place in the village where you can drink warm wine, which is even served on a hot plate to preserve its ideal temperature. The same happens with rakomelo. Do not miss the amazing cheese or chocolate fondue. Apart from that, of course, you can enjoy special labels of spirits, cognac as well as cold dishes (platters) or soups. Recently cigars were added to its benefits, so that the fans have a double reason to visit it.
What you will love in Doctor John cannot be described with words. As the owner, Katerina Manta, typically says "the more friends, the merrier".
