Greek Fire relief trapezi

In the wake of the wildfires in Greece, we are serving a special trapezi to raise money to the Greek Red Cross. 


Sunday 2 September 2018
We will be open all day, serve a la carte menu and all fathers receive a complimentary drink.


The restaurant is a project of the love and passion from my Hellenic roots. It is a project that I can claim proudly to be 100% Greek idea, design, decoration and materials. With this in mind I have created a space made in Greece. Welcome to 1821.
— Jim Kospetas, Owner
Throughout history, Hellenes have shared their table with family and friends as a show of hospitality and generosity. I have designed this menu with inspiration from my experiences and philosophy taught through Greek ages. The Odyssey may have begun in Greece, but it has now found its home, here in 1821.
— David Tsirekas, Executive Chef

Below 1821 you will find our bunker bar Odessa. The space is available to hire for private functions and is perfect for everything from birthdays to cocktail parties and private dining.

Guests enter the venue through a nondescript black door from an alley behind the venue. The bar is at the bottom of a narrow, dimly lit staircase. Once inside, Bar Odessa promises luxury fit with a delectable food menu and extensive drinks menu.
