Gazi Gazi Gazi Gazi Gazi Gazi Gazi Gazi
Gazi is located southwest of the intersection of Iera Odos with Pireos street and is now the rising area in the beginning of the 21st century, combining harmoniously the industrial tradition of yesterday with the present day. Here you have countless choices for night life, culture and entertainment, but also the characteristic lofts. The chimneys of the Technopolis area will constitute a point of reference for you so you can reach Gazi. This area got its name from the gas factory that was founded here in 1857 and now there stands the Industrial Gas Museum. In 1910 a lot of brothels settled here, something that happened again recently, with the “studios” with the characteristic red-pink signs opening one after the other. You can reach Gazi on foot from Monastriraki or Thiseio, while you will be impressed by the large graffiti on the walls, the industrial urban character of the buildings and the large number of people. Then, you will find out that the area has something for all tastes, especially regarding entertainment. Especially café-bars, clubs, modern restaurants, taverns, galleries and the famous places with Greek music can keep you occupied until the next morning. Gazi also has a lot of gay spots, since from the beginning of the 21st century the area has been considered the favorite place of the gay & lesbian audience, as well as of the hipsters.
