“There are no rules here apart from one—deliciousness.”
Fine dining, reimagined
In 2013, a decision was made to relaunch The Press Club for a more intimate and relaxed experience. Moving next door, and replaced by what is now Gazi, The Press Club of today is home to just 10 booths and a decidedly different atmosphere to its original.

When we opened we wanted to welcome as many Greek and non-Greek as possible through our doors to challenge and redefine their expectations of modern Hellenism. Years later, we feel the same.
We appreciate everything these organisations do for others, which is why we are proud to sponsor:
