Νea Smyrni: the new hot spot in town for all ages!
Around its lively square a number of Cafeterias, Restaurants and Night Bars give a unique color and vibe to this neighborhood. Kids playing and biking while parents enjoy their coffee, younger people walking around older ones meet up to remember stories. Let’s not forget that those were the ones that gave life to this place around 1920-1930.
The square was revamped in 1970 from the Architects Leonardos & Kalivitis, but the final touches were given a couple of years ago!
Nea Smyrni Square is one of the biggest, if not the biggest one, squares in Greece. Founded by refugees from Asia Minor, the square is the result of an urban development plan that began over 80 years ago. Nowadays it is a center of gastronomy, entertainment and night-life…and if you are wondering if there is a room for more, the answer is yes.
We had the chance to visit this historical place and work closely with “Spitiko..Apla”, a local restaurant at Nea Smyrni Square. The responsible architect for “Spitiko..Apla” is George Fotiadis.
“Spitiko…Apla” chose Oikos, with a history in retailing and wholesaling furniture and design items, for the minimal, black and comfortable chairs that host its customers every day and night!
Here are some photos from our walk at Nea Smyrni Square! Enjoy and do not miss a Saturday-Sunday walk there!
