Turning Filellinon Street by the Russian church, in the impressive Ralli arcade, you will find By the glass. It is a one-of-a-kind wine bar-bistro, which is housed in a historic arcade downtown. In this small, “secret” urban arcade, the history of wine unfolds before your eyes with wine bottles, food, regulars, and music being the stars.
The cosy, warm and simple decor, attention to ingredients, style of the interior and music are just a few of the elements that characterise this treasure for wine enthusiasts and for those who love quality in all its glory.
Equipped with the unique open bottle dispensers, By the Glass ensures that you'll always enjoy your wine in the most ideal conditions. With this system, not only is the opened bottle maintained at the right temperature, it also has a continuous supply of nitrogen, which protects the wine from oxidation for a long time, assisting in the maintenance of freshness as if the bottle had just been opened.
It is also worth noting that the innovative Coravin device, which allows you to pour your favourite wine by the glass, without pulling the cork, gives you access to great wines and rare vintages.
The music moves to the sounds of lounge and jazz rhythms, without missing out on any fun. In the elegant dining room, you can enjoy your morning coffee, breakfast, the daily special or Mediterranean and Greek cuisine dishes in harmony with an excellent wine.
By the Glass is a landmark for the world of wine, as the cellar hosts about 300 bottles, which honour the Greek vineyards. Here, you can order the wine of your choice in various quantities (25 ml, taste-test, 75 ml and 150 ml) and if you're feeling peckish, accompany it with delicious bruschettas or any of the other cold and hot dishes on the menu that tickle your fancy.
Here, food and wine pairing is done with art and passion by the sommelier, who will help you choose and combine the perfect accompaniment of wine with your food.
