The most wonderful time of the year has a special air in the northern suburbs of Athens, and nowhere is this more true than in the beautiful neighbourhood of Ekali. It is here that Life Gallery athens, a member of bluegr Hotels & Resorts, is celebrating the festive season in a warm and joyous environment. The hotel’s Christmas decorations reflect the building’s modern character and sophisticated aesthetics, whilst a programme of exciting events makes Life Gallery athens the ideal destination throughout December.
CHRISTMAS WITH A ‘FEMININE TOUCH’ AND A CHARITABLE CHARACTER
For the ninth consecutive year, Life Gallery athens will host the Ekali Women’s Association’s Christmas bazaar, on the 8th – 9th December. The nonprofit club invites residents of the northern suburbs and beyond to its glittering annual charity event, heralding the start of another Christmas season. The festive weekend is sure to be a memorable occasion for both young and old, with delicious desserts handmade by members of the Women’s Association on offer. A wide variety of affordable gifts will be available for purchase, whilst a programme of events themed ‘Christmas with a Feminine Touch’ offers many options suitable for children. As with every year, a portion of the profits raised from the bazaar will go to a designated charity: this year’s donations will go to the social care foundations ‘Arogi’ and ‘Workshop Lilian Voudouri’.
A CHRISTMAS GETAWAY IN THE NORTHERN SUBURBS
During this seasonal celebration of love and friendship, Life Gallery athens invites guests to an everyday retreat in the northern suburbs. With its gorgeous greenery and lush landscape, Ekali is one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Athens and Life Gallery athens is proud to offer the perfect Christmas escape, so close and yet so far from the bustling city centre.

GALA DINNER AT KOOL LIFE
On Christmas Eve, the Kool Life Restaurant invites guests to enjoy an unforgettable Gala Dinner at Life Gallery athens.

Next, an elegant dish of roasted goat’s cheese with walnuts and balsamic cream acts as the ideal overture to the show-stopping main course, where guests can choose between a turkey fillet with traditional stuffing or wild boar pot roast with Vinsanto sauce, puréed carrot, Peruvian potatoes and celeriac. The final chapter is a delightful treat of chocolate soufflé with grated cinnamon and chestnut ice cream. €70 per person.
