Go back in time. Actually, go back to 2012. Make sure that two people, strangers till that point, Vassilis Kyritsis (Greek World Class Winner 2012) and Nikos Bakoulis (Greek World Class Winner 2011), find themselves behind the same bar (and not yet The Clumsies).
A necessary prerequisite: they need to share an enjoyable sense of self sarcasm, and the belief that a bartender is not only judged by the impeccable execution of a recipe, but also by the way he connects with customers.
Let them freely experiment for a few years. Then bring them into contact with three industrious businessmen in the hospitality sector: Lefteris Georgopoulos, Thanos Tsounakas, and Giorgos Kaissaris. Stir gently, then serve.
The team behind this carefully put together space strongly believe that an all-day bar should be warm and welcoming and feel familiar. You can start your day in The Clumsies, as interior spaces are drenched in natural light; the ambience changes while the day progresses and people gather here for a night out.
Behind the Klafthmonos Square in Pine Avenue the nine design got into the hands of a building from 1919 and transformed it into a multi-level, warm and charming space. Once you walk in you feel very familiar one and dominate the wood and the lighting in the bar and the overall design of a time-traveling back in time.
Coming into contact and interacting with people is part of their job, yet for Nikos and Vassilis, being genuine hosts, this is something enjoyable and creative. Their ‘natural habitat’ extends beyond the bar, as they engage with people visiting the space.
A special part of The Clumsies is The Room: a space featuring a fireplace, a bookcase, a billiard table and vinyl LPs; it can accommodate up to ten people. Service is personalized and somewhat formal; customers enjoy the unique experience of The Clumsies and can choose from a list of extraordinary cocktails, savoring distinctive tastes available only to them. Reservations are made through the website or via phone, and response is immediate.
