Best Ouzo Bar

The coolest place to see and be seen this spring may be newcomer Samos' super-trendy, outdoor ouzo bar. What used to be the drab façade of the old J. Bistro now sports a decidedly whitewashed Aegean aesthetic. A walled patio invites the adventurous to recline amongst pillows and tinkling glasses filled with the intoxicating national drink of Greece. A selection of hard-to-find Greek wines and the best meze plates this side of Corfu make Samos tops for a night out on the town without crossing the bridge.
