    Great cocktails!
    I called in for one cocktail on a quiet Sunday afternoon. I had heard about this place on a tv programme a few years ago and didn’t realise how close by I was until the tour guide from my walking tour mentioned it. I didn’t realise it was in the top 20 bars in the world. The cocktails were fantastic and not too extortionate given the bar’s reputation. Staff were friendly and there was decent music.
    Dear Belfasttravelguy, Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're thrilled that you enjoyed our cocktails and ambience. We're glad you found our cocktails fantastic and rest assured that we relayed your kind words to The Clumsies team. Looking forward to your next visit! Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

    Great cocktails, little 'off the beaten path'
    We had several cocktails, served by friendly staff. Understandably one of the world's best cocktail bars, but I've had more...cozy experiences elsewhere (in Athens too). Would still recommend if you're into good spirits.
    Dear CarolusvL, Thank you for your kind comments regarding our cocktails and friendly team. While we're honored to be recognized among the best, we'll take your feedback to heart regarding the cozy ambience. Your input is valuable, and we hope to welcome you again soon. Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

    A must visit
    A wonderfully thought out and interesting cocktail menu is a simple but fun space. Genuinely wish I had more time to work through the options! This is incredibly unpretentious for such a good cocktail bar and it's easy to see why people flock here.
    Dear jimbocollett, We are glad you chose The Clumsies and thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review. We are delighted that you had a good experience and we will be glad to welcome you back soon for more tasty cocktails! Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

    Nice bar…may be over rated
    Nice bar in the center of Athens. Creative drinks at reasonable prices. I had a calvados drink (all signature drinks have creative names). Bartenders were not that attentive and appeared to be going through the motions. Nothing really special here other than it made the 2022 top 50 worldwide cocktail bar list.
    Dear william S, Thank you for visiting The Clumsies, and for your warm review. Our mixologists create a really unique experience for guests through the use of flavors and aromas and every cocktail is designed to please. We regret to read that our service didn't meet your expectations, and we will be taking your points into consideration going forward as we strive to constantly evolve and improve. Looking forward to your next visit. Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

    Great atmosphere
    Fantastic atmosphere and lovely cocktails! I got the cocktail sampler and my husband got the fermented americano, the dragon ball, and the sunscreen cocktail (we can’t remember the name). There is a reason this place is one of the top 50 bars in the world!
    Dear Stephenie Hawkins, It is a pleasure for us to read your kind comments regarding your visit to The Clumsies.

    Must visit bar in Athens
    The clumsies is voted for one of the best bars in the world by TimeOut. The atmosphere, the coctail menu, the decoration are all good. If you like different good quality cocktails, I highly recommend you to visit The Clumsies. My recommendation is Aegean Negroni tastes like Aegean Breeze :))

We appreciate your endorsement and look forward to welcoming more cocktail enthusiasts to experience our menu and atmosphere. Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

    Mixologists at work
    After a week in Greece, The Clumsies was the perfect way to end this trip. You must sit at the at and be mesmerized by the artistry of the mixologist. They are amazing and great to watch them work their craft. We only ordered off of their creative menu and each drink was a burst of flavors!

    Enjoy some food with your drinks!
    We came to The Clumsies because its rated as 19th best bar in the world. But what we did not expect was to also really enjoy their bar bites! We got the corn fritters and beet carpaccio, and these were both so good; honestly some of my favourite food of our entire Greece trip and we had a lot of great food. In addition, the drinks were tasty. I got their Negroni, which was tagged as the top cocktail in the world from 2019. Was it the best? I'm not sure I'd call it the best, but it was definitely delicious.
    Dear StacyMacDonald, Thank you for visiting The Clumsies and for your amazing review. We are happy to read that you had a good time and enjoyed our cocktails and especially our snacks and bites. The unique suggestions of our menu are what distinguishes our philosophy and why we have the honour of being the 47th among the World's 50 Best Bars 2023. We can't wait to welcome you back, to try more of our menu. Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

    Fun and Delicious Stop
    We wandered into The Clumsies just after lunch and enjoyed some really interesting, clever and delicious drinks off of the "Happy Accidents" menu. We enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the talented staff in action. It's obvious why this place is included in the list of Top 50 Bars in the World. Worth a visit for sure.
    Dear alandmichelle, We were so pleased to read your kind review as it is our aim to give every guest a special experience which will stay with them after they leave. We have a great team, who go above and beyond to ensure great service, an element that is very important to us, and we will make sure to pass them your kind comments. Being ranked 47 in the World's 50 Best Bars 2023 is a recognition of our success in offering guests something really unique. Hope to see you back again soon. Warm regards, The Clumsies Team

We visited Clumsies on a Friday night, it had been recommended to us multiple times. The mistake we made was not reserving a table, so we were shown to a busy packed bar. Luckily we managed to grab a small table for 2 but we were right under the speakers with the music full blast in our ears. There was a staff member walking around providing table service which meant we didn’t have to work our way through the crowds to order at the bar. The cocktails were unique, both of mine were quite sour so I had to ask her to make them sweeter. It depends on what vibe and atmosphere you are hoping for if you will enjoy Clumsies, but I would say most definitely reserve a table!!

Recently we visit Greece for few days. We was lucky to find a place at the bar as it was very busy day. The best cocktail bar in Greece. The bartenders was amazing, they took care of us and we enjoyed every single cocktail. If you are in Greece you should definitely visit this place.

This is supposedly one of the top bars in the world and has been ranked in the Top 50 - no mean feat surely?

We didn't even get to have a drink, we asked the waitress if we could have a table for 2 and were told "NO - we are full" There was no offer for us to wait, we were simply told no and she walked off.

Despite what looked like a half decent building, I am glad we didn't spend our money here. Clearly the criteria for best bars in the world doesn't include customer service!
