Open Bar

Xalavro Open Bar

Xalavro Open Bar emerged from the ruins of an old house
in the heart of the old town of Heraklion.
Where everyone saw but ruins, others saw a vibrant all-day
open space for coffee and drinks, a meeting point, a place
where new ideas and tastes would be born.

And there happened Xalavro Open Bar, now named as one
of the best cocktail bars in Heraklion Crete and Greece.
