Get into the true spirit of an authentic theme night with OM designing all aspects of such an event, from the decor and special lighting, to the gourmet cuisine and entertainment. One of the greatest advantages of Greece is the many possibilities for outdoor dining, under the bright blue or starry sky during the warmest time of year. An evening with a local flavour is the Village Feast, setup in an authentic village backdrop, with long tables, festive lighting and an abundance of Greek delicacies and world acclaimed local wine. The fun and entertainment is enhanced by a folklore dance show with the tunes of Greek music. The Village Feast can further be enhanced to include a village fair or even a performance of a Greek traditional wedding.
For an Ancient Greek Night build up and preparation for this evening begins from the early afternoon when the special attire for the delegates is delivered to their room, comprising of traditional togas, sandals, bay wreaths for the head and fake jewellery. Ancient Greek decorations recreate an authentic Greek palace atmosphere. Entertainment includes an Ancient Greek tragedy to traditional Greek dancers, or even Archaic dancers dressed as ancient athletes and performing the ritual ceremony of the opening of the Olympic Games. Reaching further back in history, ornate pots, large columns, drapery and tall candleholders create a Symposium Night, with a gourmet meal, fit for the Greek gods, plentiful of wine and a “mythology inspired” dance performance. A variety of venues, suitable for each theme, are on offer; in the centre of Athens privatize the impressive Zappeion Megaron, hosting over the years the most prestigious gatherings or nearby Aegli with its multifunction halls, both amid a beautiful park. Towards what we call the Athens Riviera high end venues are offered for exclusive use and transformed accordingly; Vouliagmeni Lake, with warm waters all year round and a fantastic dining backdrop, the all-time favourite Island, a hotspot club hosting famous Greek singers with a variety of function areas, the trendy Balux Prive and its sister property named Septem Prive or the newest addition named Ark all by the Asteras Glyfada complex for any kind of catered event by the sea. For an artistic twist to an event consider the outskirts of Athens with venues like the all-time classic Nasioutzik Estate and its Byzantine museum for a truly Greek feast, or Vorres a cultural foundation and museum with pre-dinner drinks by its quaint gardens followed by dining indoors surrounded by a notable collection of paintings.
