International hotel collection Brown Hotels has announced the official opening of DAVE Red Athens, the first property from the group’s affordable hotel line “DAVE – Son of a Brown”, to launch outside of Tel Aviv. Following the success of DAVE Gordon, DAVE Levinsky and DAVE Downtown in Tel Aviv, Brown Hotels has launched DAVE Red Athens in the Greek capital alongside two other new properties, Brown Acropol and Villa Brown Ermou, as part of a broader expansion plan into the Greek market.

Officially opened in September, DAVE Red Athens is the fourth property to launch from Brown Hotels’ affordable urban collection, following the popular DAVE Gordon, DAVE Levinsky and DAVE Downtown in Tel Aviv. Situated on Omonia Square just a stone’s throw away from the recently opened Brown Acropol, DAVE Red Athens ushers in a new wave of hospitality to the square, breathing fresh, young energy into the revamped area with fun and budget-friendly accommodation. Through a scheme to redevelop the once considered up-market area, Omonia Square was last year restored to its former glory with the reestablishment of the iconic water feature; an impressive, ecological water fountain illuminated by LED technology and a thermo-neutral surrounding surface to reduce the area’s thermal footprint during summer. In accordance with the redesigned central space, the buildings that envelope the square have been fully renovated and transformed into new, stylish hotels and coffee shops to meet the needs of urban tourists and locals alike, including DAVE Red Athens, the new Brown Acropol and soon-to-open Lighthouse Athens, all by Brown Hotels.

Staying true to the DAVE signature style, the new 87-room hotel presents the sub-brand’s distinguishable, punchy decor and fiery red branding. Led by K-Studios, the Greek design firm behind the renowned JMK Airport and Scorpios in Mykonos, DAVE Red Athens boasts a design concept that merges an industrial style decor with retro references, manifesting a defiantly playful atmosphere. The hotel lobby is furnished with original vintage pieces and memorabilia from the 1970’s sourced from flea markets, signature Brown Hotels library, popcorn machine and fully-stocked beer fridge. Each of the 87 rooms features exposed pipes, bare concrete walls, marble top surfaces and oak wood furnishings, finished nostalgic gadgets like vinyl players with original records and vintage rotary telephones, all paying homage to the era.

Presenting four unique room types including the Urban, Foxy, Foxy+, and Urban+ Balcony, and one exclusive suite, each room features a walk-in shower room, Olive Era bath products, open wardrobe, slippers and bathrobes, super soft Egyptian bed linens and towels, 43” TV screen with cable television, high speed Wi-Fi internet, a safe, minibar and Nespresso machine. The Urban and Urban+ Balcony rooms feature queen size beds, the Foxy room features an inviting, circular queen sized bed, and the Foxy+ room features a super king size bed. All beds are fitted with premium mattresses for an unparalleled night’s sleep.

The building formerly served as the KKE (Communist Party of Greece) headquarters, which is honored beautifully through a wall mural at the entrance of the hotel’s mezzanine area giving guests a deeper understanding of the property’s profound history. Presenting an adults’ playground, the mezzanine features a bar, pool tables, original Nintendo and Packman consoles, arcade machine, adjoining meeting room with blackboard walls and an intimate balcony with hammocks to relax in and soak up the city’s energy.

The ground floor of the hotel features a bar and restaurant, and a soon-to-launch underground nightclub accessed through a secret door embedded in the iconic Brown Hotels library, both operated by Six D.o.g.s hospitality group. With an all-day-dining concept, guests are invited to enjoy the breakfast buffet and a la carte menu, offering the signature Six D.o.g.s beef burger and an indulgent cocktail list. The roof terrace is the perfect place for guests to unwind, offering sweeping views across the ancient city. Complete with a spacious sundeck, pool table, jacuzzi hot tub, massage room and complimentary sparkling wine on tap, DAVE Red Athens is an urban Athenian bolthole for the modern-day traveller.

Reception at DAVE Red Athens

Leon Avigad, founder of Brown Hotels, says: “Following the success of the three DAVE properties in Tel Aviv, we decided to introduce the concept to Athens, bringing the Brown Hotels’ playful counterpart to the revamped Omonia Square. Situated by the recently opened Brown Acropol, and the soon-to-open Lighthouse Athens, DAVE Red Athens presents a young and lively hospitality offering that is unrivalled in the city.”

Expanding its property portfolio further, Brown Hotels seeks to spread the success of its devotion to service, design, creativity and style through the opening of seven additional hotels in Athens by 2023. Like the group’s well-known Tel Aviv properties, Brown Hotels will subsequently open Lighthouse Athens, Brown Spices and Theodore Athens, and additional properties in Thessaloniki, Corinthia, Crete, Corfu and Cyprus.
