The wider area of Thision and the Acropolis is one of the world’s most historic and iconic spots. It’s no less impressive at night, when the architectural temple dedicated to the goddess Athena is lit up and there are plenty of nightlife options to choose from. We list some of the best bars here.

Tiki Bar is located close to the Acropolis metro station and is a well-reputed “alternative” bar in the area. Open from early in the afternoon, it serves coffee, tea and the delicious Tiki Burger. Later on, it has more of an alternative vibe, with exotica, rare groove, easy listening and rock n’ roll music from the ’50s and the ’60s and often scheduled events.

Αnother interesting cocktail bar in the area of the Acropolis, opposite to the New Acropolis Museum and right next to the metro station. Established a few years ago, this place has quickly become a favorite lodge of the locals. Highly recommended to enjoy a coffee, a drink or a special cocktail in an authentic Athenian atmosphere, with the tables outside reminding of another, more romantic period.
