Edward Gorey and Oscar Wilde could have had their tea with whiskey here.

NileGuide Expert tip:
If you're an early bird you're sure to snag a seat. In spite of opening at 8:30, the rest of the city doesn't usually creep out of their houses before 10am.
Walking into the 7 Jokers is like entering a Victorian circus tent. Striped wing-backed chairs, wooden pinocchio dolls standing guard over a dark wooden bar lit by candy-colored strings of lights, and a whole mess of people crowded around the bartender demanding their coffees, teas and other assorted beverages. This place appeals to the quirky bohemians and anyone who appreciates good music, which is played by DJs in the late evening hours.
Take the metro to Syntagma and down Ermou Street past the McDonalds. Take a right on the first street you come to (Voulis) and continue down. 7Jokers is on the right.
