You'll come across By the Glass on Filellinon Street by the Russian church in the impressive Ralli arcade. This is a one of a kind wine bar in Greece, housed in a place that is a jewel due to its history. In the small, secret urban arcade, the history of wine unfolds before your eyes with wine bottles and regulars being the stars.
The cosy, warm and simple decor, attention to ingredients, style of the interior and the 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 dispenser 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 has just been opened.
This all day cafe-wine bar moves to the sounds of lounge and jazz music without missing out on any fun. In the elegant dining room, you can enjoy your morning coffee, breakfast, the daily special or Mediterranean cuisine dishes in harmony with a gorgeous wine.
By the Glass is a landmark for the world of wine, as the cellar hosts about 200 bottles, which honour Greek wineries. Here you can order the wine of you choice in varied quantities (25 ml, taste-test, 75 ml and 150 ml) and if you're feeling peckish, accompany it with By the Glass's delicious bruschetta, varieties of cheese and cold cuts, or any of the other dishes on the menu that tickle your fancy.
