The chronicle of a successful transformation! It was once an area with high commercial activity, which dominated the fabric stores and manufactories transformed in recent years into the city’s new ‘hot’ fun hangout! The old abandoned shops in Valaoritou and surrounding streets pass the baton to cafesrestaurants and bars for all tastes. With different styles in decorating, musical selections of all kinds, pop, rock, jazz, electronic, alternative, etc. and relaxed atmosphere full of movement, making the bar hopping imperative! Apart from the fun, it is worth wandering around the wider area of Valaoritou, where you will get a taste of the old Thessaloniki through the architecture of its beautiful buildings, like the Catholic Church (more here) the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki (more here) and the building known as Stoa (arcade) Malakopi (more here that transformed with great success into a fun place!
