The Best Bars in Athens
We used Athens for a stop over on our way to Crete and Santorini, and didn’t have much time. By the time we got to our hotel, we were exhausted and hot, and there was no way we were heading to get in line for the Acropolis at 3pm on a Friday afternoon. So instead, we decided to hunt down the best roof top bars in Athens to see the Acropolis. Because if you cant see it up close, might as well enjoy it from afar with a nice cocktail. Even if you make it see the Acropolis, make sure you hit these rooftops up for an incredible view of the city.
Pella Inn hotel
Pella Inn hostel is one of the best hostels in Athens, for the price and quality, now has a rooftop bar perfect for lounging at night and overlooking the city. It’s located a few blocks away from the train station, so its not as busy as some of the other bars in Athens. Its a chill place at early sunset, then turns into a party bar at night, including great drink specials and beer pong. The drinks are cheap and the view is incredible!

It's been a whirlwind of our first couple days in Europe, and we're finally accustomed to the time change. Sad to say we didn't have enough time to actually go up to the Acropolis, but luckily our view from our hotel had a great rooftop bar with the perfect view! The view at night is the best! We would have loved to see all the history Athens has but with only 15 hours in the city it just wasn't enough time. It's a good reason to come back to Athens again. Until next time Athens! . . . #thegreeceguide #visitgreece #reasonstovisitgreece #super_greece #topgreecephoto #ig_athens #topathensphoto #europe_ig #ig_europa #europe_vacations #hello_rooftops #lumix #travelingcouple #athens #exquisite_greece #wherelumixgoes #photography #ladiesgoneglobal #traveldeeper #beautifuldestinations #offdutytravels

When you visit, you need to stop by at least one roof top bar in Athens. The Athens nightlife is unreal, as bars stay open really late, and people love to party in Athens, so make sure you take in the views of the city from the roof tops of Athens.
If you have been to Athens, what is your favorite roof top bar that you visited?
