Brettos Bar in Plaka – BRETTOS is the oldest distillery in Athens. It started operating for the first time back in 1909. Characteristic is the beautiful décor of a wall full of coloured bottles lit from behind that fill the entire back wall floor to ceiling, providing a colour spectrum in contrast to the 200 year old building.
