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.
Acropolis Ami Bar is located on the sixth floor of the Acropolis Ami Boutique Hotel and offers an amazing view of the significant historic sights of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, as well as a friendly atmosphere in a warm environment. Here you can good wine, well-made cocktails and the sounds of lounge and live jazz music.
Root Art Space is an award-winning minimalist space in Thisio that has been created by artists. Here you can enjoy a meal at low prices, have a coffee or a drink, visit an exhibition or just sit on a pillow on the floor and watch a movie, while getting the opportunity to meet all kinds of new people.
