Its a very hip and trendy bar. All the locals are there. We had an amazing desert there but I dont believe they have food. The shop is full of local designers and its a 10 minute walk from Plaka are.

Went here yesterday as I wanted to go to a good bar in the Monastiraki area and came across here. Had a Maitai as well as a Greek Island Martino both of which were excellent!
