NileGuide Expert tip:

Get there by 8pm if you expect to sit. By 11 the place is jumping with regulars.


In a narrow, gutter-width bar, just in the gateway of cultured Kolonaki, the atmosphere is as smokey-voiced and bedroom-eyed as Tallulah Bankhead in a prohibition era  speakeasy. Athens might be an unlikely place for such a hangout, but the whiskey bar, Low Profile, is where you go to find the same faces night after night drinking high grade scotch and malt whiskey to the accompanying tunes of US imports like Johnny Cash, J.J. Cale, Billie Holiday and a whole wide assortment of other lesser-known legends.

The prices reflect good taste and an unoccupied stool or chair is a rarity. It is one bar out of hundreds choosing to ignore the smoking ban made official in January 2010. We say this as a way to tell you it might not be for everyone, but it doesn't stop eclectic, intelligent crowds from amassing nightly in search of high grade alcohol and top rate music.
