Baba au Rum

The father of the modern Athens cocktail scene, Baba Au Rum is also the most cherished. That’s because owner Thanos Prunarus - a worldly Athenian bon vivant – is a trailblazer, creating this modern rum sanctuary 11 years ago when the cocktail scene was in its adolescence. Sparks flew, awards followed, and not a lot has changed since, and that’s a good thing. Indeed, you’ll still find the infectious Prunarus holding court, orchestrating sophisticated revelry amid this artistic setting. As the name suggests, rum takes centre stage here, but the cocktail menu happily makes diversions into other world spirits.
