It's a lively place for Bouzuki style Greek music. Shows start late (as usual in Greece). Atmosphere is friendly and noicy, lot of music and singing, and locals are the majority of the crowed.

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
