Far from clumsy, the concept of this warm and fun establishment is cleverly engineered to embrace a young crowd who like to dance, lounge at the long bar or chill out in one of the many rooms surrounding it. Added to the mix is the private ‘Room’, designed to look and feel like a living room where punters can play pool next to the library while being looked after by their own personal bartender for the night.
The cocktail list changes annually. Currently called Genesis, it is inspired by art and Greek words. The drinks range from syrups and cordials made from vegetable or fruit water, to seasonal cocktails and even fermented or preserved ingredients.
The Clumsies is more than a bar, it is also a brand: the team organises various international cocktail projects, including the American Dream Bar, the Asian and the Hotel pop-up where guests from some of the best bars in the world are invited to show their projects to the Athenian audience.
