Did I trick you into reading this post , by its title?
I hope I did, because Royal doesn't get any more royal than this rest-bar in the heart of Athens.
It used to be one of the residences of King Otto and Queen Amalia, the first loving king and queen of Greece at the beginning of the 19th century.
Today the residence at 16-18 Kalamiotou str. is a lovely greek-with-a-twist restaurant and bar with cocktails like the one named after Helen of Troy. Between Hera, goddess of marriage, this queen of Sparta, chose Aphrodite, goddess of love. I very much feel for her!
Do let me know when you visit Athens!
I'll be glad to show you around the best unseen spots of us locals, at a very reasonable fee.
