six d.o.g.s is an all day/all night cultural entertainment center at the heart of Athens’ Historic Center (Monastiraki), which organically combines each one of its elements: a Gig Space, a Project Space, a Bar, a Foyer, and a Garden. It’s not introduced as a new space, but rather, as a new model for a space. It is suggested as a space which aims at constantly creating and maintaining a high-profile dynamic nucleus of cross-genre activities at a part of the city which is natural to happen, aiming at being both avant-garde and pop.
Having a realistic average of hosting 500+ different events each year, the space keeps up to a hyperactive profile
which is never indifferent. It is open from 10 in the morning till late in the night, daily, serving a wide range of local goodies, special cocktails, and home-made delights, all in a price-friendly package. One of the most dynamic Athens-based architectural offices, Point Supreme Architects, has re-designed the whole space.
The Gig Space is probably the nucleus of the complex: a flexible and neutral studio space that is configured for anything from live gigs, theatrical performances, parties, and screenings, to educational programs, workshops, seminars and lectures, both by young Greek artists, and acts from abroad, always emerging, always fresh. With an emphasis on music, equally thrown upon live or DJ gigs, the space’s soundsystem is active almost on year-round basis, offering an ideal experience of a solid and complete gig.
