White Monkey, at Halandri, is not an ordinary cafe-bar. It is a hangout inside a house, and at the same time a house inside a hangout. Confused?
This extraordinary haunt is located in a renovated house, which was restored in such a way by the "westerners" (owner Alexandros Kyriakopoulos in cooperation with the mind_the_Ark girls), so as to a bar of the Pacific in the 1950s, to be created in the interior. How was this possible? Birds of paradise on the walls and greenery make you believe you are in exotic places, while in fact you are in the heart of Halandri.
There are three levels: pedestrian street, balcony and bar. Go early for a mummy's breakfast and the freshly roasted specialty coffee Kudu. After dusk it is an ideal choice for super exotic cocktails, made by Aggelos Triantafyllopoulos and Spyros Tsopelakos. The Zombie, Rum Krousta and Cox, stand out.
The music is mostly rock'n'roll, swing, black and Jamaican. Friday nights are rock'n'roll nights, while Sundays are devoted to Jamaican tunes.
