Roots Rakomelo Pop Up Bar

Taking place for 2 months only, from the 23d of November to the 23d of January 2019, Wednesday to Saturday from 5pm until late, and Sunday brunch.
It is located right in the city centre, Solonos str. 9, at the basement of Yolenis Gastronomy Centre.

Update, check our Christmas Party:

The Roots Rakomelo bar celebrates the 'rakomeladiko' tradition (old school taverns with homemade rakomelo and meze food), and is the world's first liqueur pop up joint. The whole set up takes us back to our roots and is based on Roots craft liqueurs. The Roots philosophy stands for simplicity, heritage and quality, and this is the story we wanted to say in our own bar.

Roots Perfect Serves

In the menu we first present the Roots Perfect serves. The perfect serves showcase a simple way to enjoy Roots, bringing out the aromas and the flavour in a most evident way.
Here are four examples:

Roots Comfort Drinks


In the next section of the menu we introduce the concept of comfort drinking. Comfort drinks are simple low alcohol servings, without a shaker, and with max 3 ingredients. Roots long drinks with sodas, and two warm suggestions for the winter.

For example, this is our classic Greek Mule, with Roots Kanela, lime and ginger beer
