Summer is here and its heady summer nights. And as the sun rises above the capital nothing can beat a refreshing drink overlooking the brightest miracle of the planet, Acropolis. Now, is the time to discover the rooftops of the center. Let me show you the historic Mitropoleos Street, which seems to have been reborn and turned into a road with character and retro chic aesthetics. How about escape high in three all day bar restaurants with unlimited view above the city?


Walking down the street from Syntagma Square to Monastiraki, we meet the almost newcomer in neighborhood, Electra Hotel. The building that once housed the Ministry of Education, has now transformed into a luxurious 5-star hotel that harmoniously combines the classical with the modern aesthetics. Let’s set atop on the 10th floor and get landed on the M Bar. The view of Acropolis is quite literally breathtaking. So, close its, as you can almost touch! The place also offers sweeping view to the hustling and bustling center of the city. This is ultimate the best view without doubt. Enjoy it with a glass of wine in your hand!


A different perspective of the city view can be founded at the 4th floor of the Zillers Boutique Hotel across Mitropoleos street. The small vintage elevator whisks you to the amazing roof garden with the vibrant patches of green create a refreshing and relaxing mood. Ziller’s terrace looks like a pop-up window which provides an unobstructed view to the Acropolis and to the illuminated Church.

Good lounge music, romantic atmosphere, signature cocktails and you will have a magical summer night. If you want to taste the irresistible kitchen menu, booking in advance is highly recommended.

City Zen

Pay a last visit to the City Zen, for unparalleled view without costing a fortune! Head up on the open-air terrace – on the 5th floor- to soak up the sunshine. It has a spectacular view to the old neighborhood of Plaka, which is located on the edge of the sacred Rock of Acropolis.

It’s the best place to catch up with your friends under the summer attic sky. Prepare your camera for panoramic captures!
