Mexican inspired cantina in GreeceAthens

Can't stomach the thought of another night in Athens knocking back ouzo shots? Then make your way to Barro Negro, a Mexican-inspired joint where you can cleanse your palate with more than 120 tequila and mezcal varieties.

Located next to busy Klafthmonos Square, this boozy venture boasts its own fermentation lab (one of only two in the city), so be sure to sample the Bloody Maria, made using freshly fermented tomato juice and a potent shot of Mexico's finest. There's also a small menu featuring bar bites like tacos and ceviche. High ceilings, cobblestone floors and a couple of strategically placed cacti help set the mood.

Just don't expect to find a sombrero lying around, this is south of the border styling at its most chic.
