Summary/Abstract: No doubt, Thessaloniki, Greece’s de facto cultural capital has no shortage of fashionable cafes and nightspots. But beyond going out merely to drink or be drunk, to see or be seen, is it possible to feel the convivial spirit of an ancient land, world-famous for its legacy of feasting, the arts and philosophy? Indeed there is! Tucked in a back lane right in the heart of Thessaloniki, a welcoming bookshop, Loxias, celebrates almost three millennia of Greek literary offerings in its well-lit book cellar. Upstairs, where the cafe is located, a cozy interior overlooks Roman ruins in the backyard. The walls are lined with turn-of-the-century photographs, and voluminous barrels of wine greet the visitor.
