“Tasty Cocktails with a View that Can't be Beat!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Go to this bar. The view alone makes it worth it. It's a 180 degree rooftop view of Athens, with the Acropolis directly in front of you. I went once during the day and once at night, and both were spectacular. This place has a modern, edgy vibe while also being welcoming. There are multiple levels to sit on - the roof, which is the best, then right below it with an expansive window so you still get a great view and is better for larger groups, and then below that there are tables around a bar and is a more relaxed feeling.

I came here with just one other friend during the day and we each enjoyed a delicious glass of house made sangria in the sun and it made for a lovely break in the middle of an afternoon full of sightseeing. I then brought my entire group of friends here on our last night in Athens and everyone loved it. For a cocktail it will be about 10 euro, but they are very well made, both the standard drinks and their specialties. I ordered a Mojito and it was very well mixed. I'd also recommend the A is for Athens and the Spicy Tommy; their specialties are all quite tasty. It is a pricier place, but it is completely worth it for the view and the atmosphere.

“Best spot in Athens- MUST visit”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We went here for dinner and snacks, there were 6 of us and no free tables so we were told to wait upstairs by the bar. The view from here was fantastic and the crowd was young, gorgeous and energetic. Within 10 minutes we were told a table had become available and were promptly led downstairs. The cocktail list is very quirky and interesting although at night (post 10pm) they only offer a few things off their menu which weren't great but the vibe more than made up for it.

The music was retro and upbeat and the bartenders are super cute. Great for a group of friends or even as a couple- we saw a few cozying up right beside us.

“Great view, less great service”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Very nice entrance with the elevator to the 6th floor. Finally found a place to sit then we had to leave because it was reserved even though there wasn't a sign on the table. The waitress arranged that we could stay, after 5 minutes a waiter told us to leave the table and would fix another table. To bad he never came back to us to help us.
