The following directory was compiled combining the information on gay clubs included in the "Athenorama" and the "Exodos" magazines, issues 1095 (Oct. 3-9, 1997) and 66 (Sep. 19-25, 1997) respectively.

"Athenorama" and "Exodos", the two outdoors-entertainment-and-nightlife weekly pocket guides, are the athenian equivalents of London's "Time Out" and Paris's "Pariscope". "Athenorama"'s english-language version is called "AthensScope".

Notice: Some of the Athenian clubs bars and cafes close down during mid-summer.
