Avant-garde design hotel near Thessaloniki’s harbor with cutting-edge art and a rooftop bar and pool
Greek architect Tasos Zeppos is behind the envelope-pushing design of the 212-room Met Hotel in the recently developed harbor area of Thessaloniki. The avant-garde look starts in the lobby, with black painted walls adorned with top-shelf art, and continues to the Long Bar, which is anchored by a 22-carat gold-plated wall. Solid Wenge wood floors in the guestrooms set off marble bathrooms and streamlined furniture from Minotti and Armani Casa, while the chic Sky Bar offers 360-degree views over the city. Dine on Pan-Asian dishes from chef Oliver Peyton at the stylish, low-lit CHAN restaurant, and indulge in hydrotherapy rituals at the M' Spa, which offers urban stress-reducing lomilomi and hot stone massages.
In the Area
A fixture in Thessaloniki, Mylos is a hybrid live music venue and gallery that’s a perennial favorite with the city’s club kids and culture vultures. See a show, hit a club or settle into the ouzeri, which serves more than 30 kinds of mezedes. Church lovers will be in seventh heaven, as the hood is close to several world-class places of worship, including the 11th-century Byzantine beauty, the Church of Panagia Chalkeon, the magnificent Church of Saint Demetrius (which includes the crypt of Thessaloniki’s patron saint), and the Agia Sofia, one of the city’s oldest standing churches. Refuel with heart-starting coffee and baklava at the legendary 1908 coffee shop Hatzis.
