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!

I mean the view from Pella Inn Hotel is just incredible- especially at night!
