Galleraki Cocktail Bar, owned by Damianos Gryparis, is housed in a double-storied building which dates since the latter part of the 1800s and lies in the middle of Little Venice. From there the view encompasses the Windmills and Little Venice as well. It is a classic example of the traditional architecture found in the Cyclades. It should be noted that during the excavations by the French Archaeological School in Delos, the archaeologists stayed at this house.
In 1989, Damianos turned the first floor into a bar, which was called Gallery, owing to the fact that the owner, Yannis Galatis had used it as an art gallery. In 1992, he moved to the ground floor, and as the place was much smaller, he named it Galleraki (small gallery). Its position and the unique sunset, inspired him to turn it into a cocktail bar. After 23 successful years, Galleraki Cocktail Bar is widely known and appears in the most famous holiday sites in the world, such as Fodor’s (www.fodors.com).
