Filotimos is an all day coffe bar. It is located inside of the Municipal Theatre in Piraeus in Athens. The Municipal Theatre of Piraeus is a neoclassical building, built in 1895. The theatre has a 600-seat capacity, and has been renovated in the year 2015.
In the ground floor of this historical building, a new café bar has been designed according the atmosphere of the Theatre.
The idea was to create an all day bar with an atmosphere of an old pharmacy store of the 1850. A giant wooden library was constructed and placed for storaging the alcohol and liquors of the bar. We tried to respect the philosophy of the historic building and we kept the existing floors.
Outside of the Bar Filotimos we designed a yard according the Austrian cafés of the 1850 in Europe. Marble tables and old white chairs have been placed , with very elegant metal structures that surrounds the area.
The themes on the wall inside Filotimos have been painted by the artist Anna Dimitriou.
The decoration elements ,such as dishes and pots, are from the personal collection of the co-owner Kosmas Karavas.
