Step behind the bar at Meerkat Cocktail Safari

Take a trip down to South Africa at the Meerkat Cocktail Safari bar, Athens' new hotspot, and concoct your own recipes.

A meerkat overlooks this renovated old colonial-style garage in the trendy Koukaki neighbourhood, the emblem of the Meerkat Cocktail Safari. The capital's youth gather in this bar to enjoy a very creative cocktail menu that changes regularly. From tapas to various drinks, everything is homemade, down to the fruit syrups used in the recipes. The pace of the tribal electronic music interspersed with animal sounds will encourage you to order (in moderation) highly unusual drinks, such as the Wedraogo – made with Leblon Cachaça from Brazil, Tia Maria coffee liqueur, coconut milk and Taf Pianeta Espresso - or Popobawa The Evil – made with Finlandia vodka, aged rum, apricot jam, cardamom, fresh lemon juice and Greek honey. Dare ask to stand behind the bar and prepare your own cocktail: tell the bartender about your taste and mood, and he will pick the ingredients to make something up. It will then be up to you to customise your drink!
