Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation
The new museum, the “Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation”, named after the founders, is housed in a privately owned property that resulted from the coupling and harmonious conciliation of a listed interwar building and a modern addition. The choice of the spot was based on the desire of the Goulandris couple for the museum to be located in a central part of the capital, in a place easily accessible to visitors, within the cultural axis that surrounds the major museums of the city. On the mezzanine floor there is a café-restaurant during museum opening hours, where visitors can enjoy coffee, breakfast, brunch and lunch. The menu bears the signature of our executive chef Dimitris Skarmoutsos, while the wine selections are signed by the internationally renowned and leading sommelier, Aris Sklavenitis. Mixologist Aris Chatziantoniou has compiled a drinks list that includes two particularly low adv cocktails, ideal for the afternoon hours.
