“Your bar, our people” is the motto of this all-day hangout on the main pedestrian street of Acharnes, which was set up in such a way that it can rise to the occasion of even at the most bustling squares in the city centre. Bartist adopts the philosophy of famous hangouts in major European metropolises and has been created with a philosophy revolving on specialization on two core areas: coffee and cocktails.
Undisputedly, Bartist stands out for its fully updated and quite enviable bar, which consists of more than 240 labels from every spirit category. Indeed, its list is divided according to spirits, with each of these including rare and specialized options that will impress you.
Its cocktail list includes signature suggestions, created by the experienced Bartist bartenders’ team. Two of them stand out and became instantly the patrons’ favourites; the Royal Basil (a cocktail that combines perfectly the Japanese tradition with the Mediterranean temperament and the British arrogance) and the Red Square (the Tea Road meets the London gin’s heritage, as the glass overflows with a taste of mature red fruits).
Bartist never stops specializing on coffee as it is one of its basic functions. Its barristas are highly specialized and trained by SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe), while the cooperation with Taresso Artisan Coffee Roasters gives them the opportunity to create a speciality blend (from a coffee blend from Brazil, Colombia and El Salvador), which is found exclusively at Bartist. Aromas of nuts, chocolate and toffee and a subtle acidity are some of its basic flavour characteristics. This particular coffee blend can also be bought for home use.
Finally, approximately every two weeks you can also order a different single-variety coffee, which will “travel” you to different parts of the world with its aromas and give you the chance to taste coffee blend varieties that otherwise you would never have tasted.
New entries on the menu in 2017 are the pizza (two different options), the muffins and the sweet tarts.
Designed by the successful team of 9 Nine Design, Bartist’s space is moving in simple, industrial lines with wood and warm colours as its key features that comply perfectly with the overall concept. Opt for the tables on the first floor for more private, quiet and relaxing moments. Here, you will also find board games to pleasantly spend your time with your friends.
