Gay Map of Athens
Hotels in and around the central Monastraki and Psiri districts are well located for exploring the city and are within easy reach of the gay nightlife in the nearby Gazi district. Gazi (or Gkazi) has become very trendy lately and is home to the gay village. It’s a good place to start out, with gay-friendly cafes and restaurants along with bars and nightclubs all around, and all within walking distance of one another. Places open, close, or change names quite frequently in Athens -but in this neighborhood just follow your gaydar and check the local flyers, and one place will lead to the next.
