Stepping inside Noel, a luxury bar in the centre of Athens, is like transporting yourself to a different country altogether. As with much of Athens, the lively, expansive and buzzing interior is near-indistinguishable from outside. Through the Art Deco doors, huge rooms are packed with people who are there to soak up the festive, ornate interiors while enjoying their expertly made drinks. At peak hours, service can be a little slow, and you might need to wait for a table.
