Here's a photo of Leonard Cohen at the famous
"Lagoudera" club on Hydra in 1973:

The photo was taken by the "demonic" owner of Lagoudera
Babis Mores and I found it on his daughter's, Sofia Mores, blog:

If you like take a glimpse of Lagoudera at those times
you can watch the scene of the film "Phaedra" by Jules Dassin
with Melina Mercouri and Anthony Perkins that was shot
inside the club in 1962:

Today Lagoudera has been renamed to "Papagalos"
and is open in Hydra as a cafe-coctail bar
under a new managment.

And that is Anthony Kingsmill he is smiling at. One of our oldest and dearest mutual friends from Hydra. His daughter Emily stayed with us while visiting L.A. Last January.Anthony gone some 20 years, but never forgotten.

Lagoudera is now called Omilos. Well worth a visit for dinner or lunch. Papagalos is run by the same guy - the astounding Kostas - and is a little back from Omilos along the seafront - excellent cocktails, but watch the step! ;-)
