Legendary Greek Party Spot Nammos Headed to New York City

Iconic Mykonos beach restaurant and popular party venue Nammos, which boasts “an international jet-set clientele” and “insane parties that start immediately after dessert is served and $1,000-plus bottles of Champagne and fresh fish” is opening up an outpost in New York City in 2015, reports the Tribeca Citizen.

New York City restaurateur Harry Poulakakos reportedly decided to help bring the restaurant to New York after throwing his son’s wedding there.

Including his son Peter, the Poulakakos family owns 10 restaurants in the Financial District alone, including Harry’s Café and Steak, Bacchanal, and The Dead Rabbit.

According to Greek news outlet Proto Thema News: “The idea is to promote Greek products to American customers through Nammos, [wherein] the restaurant will cooperate with Greek fishermen so that New Yorkers would be able to taste Greek fishes. The design and architecture of the site is curated by the famous designer Lionel Ohayon. The ground floor will be used as an event hall with a capacity of 2,500 people, while the first and second floor will be converted into a hotel with 61 rooms.”


New York’s Nammos by the Sea will be a rooftop restaurant at the Battery Maritime Building, and is scheduled to open in 2015.
