What I can see

This historic eclectic building was designed by Jacques Moshe and its façade’s decoration refers to belle époque and neoclassicism. It consists of 6 beams with capitals and in the spaces between them, flat and curved surfaces with openings alternate. On the second floor, the openings of the flat surfaces have balconies. The art nouveau elements of the decoration are present both on the facade and in the luxurious interior of the building.

What I can't see

The Olympos brewery was founded by 3 big commercial families of the late 19th century (Allatini, Misrahi and Fernandez) and fully implemented the standards of the corresponding German companies. Later, it merged with the Naoussa Ice Factory (founded in 1912). Initially, the building operated as a tasting room for “Olympos-Naoussa” beer and within a year, the famous restaurant of the same name opened, which operated for almost 70 years. During World War II, the Germans turned it into a cabaret. Today, the renovated building houses a hotel and the new restaurant, which is under the guidance of the top chef and Thessaloniki’s Chef Ambassador, Dimitris Tassioulas, who combines local cuisine with the city’s multicultural past.
