A for Athens

Copyright 2011 Jan
A new magnificent hidden place over the roofs of Athens has just arrived. The small terrace on two floors has minimalistic and modern design with contemporary Greek twist. 

Talking about the view... it´s insane. It gives the most astonishing panoramic view in the city to the Monastiraki Square, Plaka and most importantly to the Acropolis.

This is most likely to be the number one down town destination for people in Athens on the future. It´s a great place to check the city away from the hustle and bustle of the streets during the day, for romantic date on sunset or meeting friends over delicious cocktails later on. Go immediately to Monastiraki Square and look up to the skyline for the roof top heaven!

How to get there? Well, walk away from the Monastiraki (ΜΟΝΑΣΤΙΡΑΚΙ) metro station, pass the little white church on your right and look for an ice cream store on your left on the corner of Miaouli and Ermou streets. From Miaouli street 2-4 go in under the sign "A for Athens" and take the elevator to the top floor.

  • The elevator is extremely tiny and only for 3 people. Be prepared to wait your turn for a while or even take the stairs.
  • Remember to check the work of graffiti artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis behind the rooftop bar.
