Although a relatively new addition to the Heroes Square of Limassol, Miro Kitchen Bar has already managed to establish itself as one of the local crowd’s favorites. Located near the popular Rialto Theatre, Miro Kitchen Bar is the perfect option for a well-prepared drink in anticipation of a theatre play, or for some refreshing cocktails following a live music performance. The bar is popular with a diverse crowd and age group, ranging from nearby TEPAK University students to hip 40-year-olds who know how to enjoy good music in a warm and welcoming setting.
The focal point of Miro Kitchen Bar is its large and well stocked bar, which stretches from one side of the indoor area to the other, offering plenty of seating space for those who want to watch the “live mixing” of their cocktails, or just wish to strike up a conversation with one of the friendly staff members. Bar owner Panayiotis is a well-established figure in the local bar scene, whose honest and warm smile will make you feel like an old time patron, even if this is your first visit. The warmth of the place is enhanced by the red hues of the walls and the warm-white lighting, which strike a tone of mystery and grant a nostalgic ode to the square’s notorious red light district past.
Miro Kitchen Bar is open Monday through Sunday from 10am to 2am enabling you to pop in early in the day for a cup of freshly brewed coffee, stop by to enjoy one of the lunch selections from the bar’s Greek and Mediterranean menu and then carry on for cocktails at any time of the evening at one of Limassol’s most historic and notorious “bad-turned-good” areas.
Prices are very reasonable, ranging from €10 to €30 if a meal is included, and although not usually necessary, reservations can be made in advance. An obvious drawback given the bar’s city centre location, is the lack of parking place, which can be overcome if you visit the area early in the evening.
