With the Athens bar scene growing significantly in the last few years, Athens Coast
dives into the nightlife and gives us the inside scoop on the best courtyard and rooftop bar experiences!
Located on the roof of the Central Hotel in Plaka, this is Athens Coast’s go-to. “I like this place because it is never over-crowded and the service is friendly and attentive. Also, after a few cocktails, when the lights shine on the sides of the Acropolis, you can see the outline of a goat’s head.”
A hidden boutique hotel with a roof terrace over-looking Acropolis. The Zillers popped onto the scene recently and is on all of the trendy ‘Athens is the new (insert cool city here)’ lists.
This hostel has one of the highest rooftop bars in Athens, so you can see Acroplis and Mount Lycabettus. In the elevator on the way up, you will see a sign that reads, “No we don’t have wifi, get drunk and talk to each other.”

As it is the official bistro for the Museum of the City of Athens, the Black Duck is the classiest joint on my list. Take a stroll through history and enjoy a coffee in the garden of the first palace in Athens. Black Duck is open year round, with the outdoor courtyard open Spring-Fall.
A renovated shopping alleyway on Kolokotroni has become an industrial, hip hang-out. Food, coffee, juices, cocktails- you name it, they have it.
