Wining and dining

Scala Vinoteca is a real metropolitan diamond and the newest entry into mature wining and dining. Yet not in Milan or New York, but in Athens.

When it comes to enjoying a fine plate of octopus carpaccio, tiradito shrimps, or asparagus a la plancha with a fairy flair of Chios mastic, over more than one hundred different wine etiquettes to choose from, then the place to be is definitely Scala Vinoteca. A wine bar that opened about three months ago right in the very fashionable and fabulous heart of Athens, in Kolonaki.

With a strong resemblance to Spanish vinerias, it was two great architects, Andreas Kurkulas and Maria Kokkinou (well known for their previous work on the Benaki Museum)  that gave the place –miles of miles away from maximalism- its simple character and strong attitude through the use of simple materials such as wood and aluminium.

But unarguably, it is not the Fiberglass Shell chairs by C&R Eames for Modernica that have the leading role here, although they might at first try to steal it!  That belongs alone to the menu itself (very Mediterranean compiled together by Christoforos Peskias and his student, Thodoros Kyprianides) as well as to the rich wine card.
