Authentic Live Greek music Every Saturday

Every Saturday night features live music on the Bouzouki from the legendary Taki (Demetrios) Dotis, his Mad Greeks and Greek Diva Elizabeth singing all of your favorite Greek songs. We also have the honor of award-winning Belly Dancing and traditional Greek dancing.

Live music begins at 6:30 pm and we recommend reservations for parties of 4 or more. Feel free to join us and we will find a place for you or your party in our new expanded Ballard location’s larger dining room or our new bar section.

Taki (Demetrios) Dotis is a legendary musician, composer, recording artist and a master of the Bouzouki. After doing recordings in Athens, he played in several movies and Athenian clubs, including the historical HARAMA.

Taki played with famous rembetika musicians and composers including Tsitsanis, Papaioanou, Zagoreos and Lafkas. He also accompanied such famous singers as Mitropanos, Florinotis (Euro-Vision, 1975), Rita Sakelario, and Haroula Lambraki. He is historically known as the first Bouzouki musician from Florina. Invited to perform for Greek - American audiences, his music led him to Hollywood, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Hawaii, Boston, Toronto, and then to Seattle.
