The arcade where «The Trap» (us) greeted the new year, it’s easy to miss as it is hidden behind the 24-hour bus stop for the airport. It had, of course, met great glories in the ’60s, when there was housed the cabaret “Copacabana”, sole witness whose remains its greyish entrance with an iron grip in owl shape.

Someone, observant enough, entered the gallery and discovered a small space that was used years and brought the right people to exploit: Yiannis Samaras and John Alexopoulos (return to center), Dimitris Benakis ( «Cinco») and o Stephen Draganidakis (from «the Dalliance House» where he had worked with Samaras and «the Clumsies») created here «the Trap», a bistrot bar that apart from the experienced and trusted team, has the rare privilege of isolation in a constantly busy area.
