Mind you I was flabbergasted when I arrived at Tyrol, the Greek tavern where MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY is held. The place will mesmerize you with its authentic Greek decor and look, you feel you are back in Greece when you enter the tavern. What else could I have asked for, Greek music, Greek food, a Greek tavern and going there with da BIG BOSS aka Michalis Vranis, who happens to be Greek! I guess by now everyone knows my passion for the land of the Gods aka Greece!

The setting was elegant, classy and exquisite. I must say it was one of the best nights I had in Stockholm during my research trip to the Eurovision host city. Plus to top it all up we enjoyed a delicious Greek 3 course meal, amazing wine, ABBA’s music and great entertainment MAMMA MIA (the musical). We got to see some amazingly talented singers and artists enact and perform ABBA’s melodies.

Eventhough the show was in Swedish we had an amazing time as the songs were all sung in English. You could more or less guess the theme of the musical. No need to worry coz during Eurovision the show will be running in English!

The caste performed par excellence showcasing their vocal skills and musical talent. All in all it was quite an entertaining and funloving experience!

We got the chance to hear ABBA’s songs from yesteryear and new songs that have not seen the day of light, ie haven’t ever been published. Whilst you’re dining and wining you can enjoy ABBA’s music and watch the show, which is divided in 4 parts. At the end of the night all the guests are invited to dance Zorba together.

After dessert the tables in the centre are removed, as the silver disco balls descend and the disco lights are turned on. The tavern is suddenly transformed into a night club where you can boogie to ABBA’s greatest hits! Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!

OMG! What an evening! I was totally fascinated with the way the whole party was organized. The service was excellent with the waiters and waitresses doing their level best to attend the guests in the best possible way. The music and the ambiance were totally mindblowing! Mind you I wouldn’t mind another glass of Ouzo!
