The neighborhood of the “elite” Athenians, it traditionally houses top designers and expensive retail boutiques. Greek design houses are located around the main square known as Platia Kolonakiou. Chic boutiques — carrying ’60s- inspired stilettos and clutches, form-fitting crystal studded T-shirts and fancy cocktail dresses (designed to make every woman feel like a goddess) and tailored designer suits for men — can be found on Anagnostopoulou, Skoufa, Tsakalof and Haritos streets, while high-end international brand name chains are found along Voukourestiou Street. Part of the shopping fun in Kolonaki is stopping for a cup of coffee and people- watching, or enjoying a meal at the many fashionable restaurants. Be sure to try and fit both in for a complete Athenian shopping experience.
