Papillon Bistrot: For corporate lunches and after-work drinks
Stumped for where to take your work colleagues for an out-of-office meeting? Looking for a restaurant that is on the right side of chic but not overly pricey? Papillon offers a cosy venue, inviting yet discreet, for informal, productive meetings that you’d want to stretch well into the evening!
An all-day bar & restaurant that embodies the bistro culture of Paris and New York in both spirit and aesthetics, Papillon’s décor channels the Belle Époque of 1920’s Montmartre through a filter of contemporary sensibility and casual elegance.
The setting makes for a compelling reason to invite corporate guests and business partners – the lunch menu is peppered with light, yet inventive meals (try the Chicken Cordon bleu or the crab salad) to pique your curiosity and homey comfort foods, tweaked ever so slightly, to meet exigent standards.
For after-work drinks and colleague-bonding sessions, succumb to the lure of Papillon’s sophisticated cocktails and aperitivos. The wines here are a discovery too – Papillon’s sommelier Marina Damdilopoulou takes immense pride in stocking some of the most interesting labels from Greece and abroad. We tasted exquisite whites from Tinos and from newer, lesser-known wine regions, that pair perfectly with a cheese and charcuterie platter.
Book ahead for a romance-filled evening or come with a bunch of girlfriends to croon along to jazz standards – or, set aside time for both! With its ever-changing array of opportunities, including Mystery Mondays, Throwback Tuesdays, and other themed events for every day of the week, it would be a shame to go to Papillon just once!
Ideally located on Kifissias Avenue, just at the level of Psychico’s diplomatic enclave, Papillon also has private rooms for corporate events, business meetings, group events, private parties or for a ladies night out.
