Can you think of a better closure to your day than drinks with a view? Or enjoying the beautiful sunset while having a delicious meal on the Athenian terraces?
As the weather gets warmer and warmer, Athenians and visitors start to gather at the vibrant downtown areas and of course rooftop bars are the number one choice for those who want to dive into the non-stop nightlife of the city.
But rooftop bars are in fact, a hotspot all day long, as they offer all options from breakfast to dinner, a nice wine degustation, funky cocktails or a quick coffee with a 2500 year-old background: the Acropolis of Athens.
Join Athens nightlife and see the city at its best, vibrant, charming and ready to boost your vacation and offer you memorable experiences!
