“Troxalia (pulley) the main element for movement.”
Troxalia is a multi-tasking place created by Stavroula, Stelios and Giannis in the centre of Maroussi. Their idea was based on their common philosophy of a friendly - cozy place to hang out with friends. Being experienced in the field of restaurant business they decided it was the right moment to create Troxalia.
Troxalia, is an arty space, styled in an industrial – vintage way. All the furniture and the decorative items are handmade by Stelios, some of them have been crafted from reuse and recycle raw materials. Stelios participated with his personal exhibition in Trash Art and he informs us that Troxalia will be continuously enriched with new special objects.
A day in Troxalia starts early, with deliciously smelling coffees, juices, fresh refreshments and many kinds of sandwiches with special combinations and refined tastes. The kitchen belongs to Stavroula and to her “mammy – like” cooking. The menu mostly consists of Mediterranean healthy dishes. The raw materials are all chosen carefully and supplied by small producers mainly from Giannis’ origin, Crete. In the evening you can enjoy a meal or drink in the back yard, which makes you feel that even for a moment you are away from the city noise.
Troxalia is not only the above. All the three of them have a common purpose for Troxalia, to make it become a cultural place. Their aim is to host exhibitions, bands and maybe art workshops.
If you are looking for a completely different suggestion, out of the ordinary in the heart of the city, certainly Troxalia is the most appropriate place to offer you this experience.
