Our friends took us there for a drink because they knew people working there! We enjoyed our evening a lot because the atmosphere was great and so was the view! The staff was really friendly and chatty and that not because they knew our friends, as we noticed of how they were with other people as well! Very good prices, considering its place!

This is a bar, especially at night, with a pretty young and loud crowd and a breakfast place in the morning. It sits on the top of the building that hosts the hotel with the same name and is right in front of the Monasteriaki Plaka with a beatiful view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The breakfast is pretty good; but skin the coffe and get if from the cofee place right in front of the hotel. Excellent for a drink late at night and a view of the lit Parthenon.

the choice is quality is not bad. But if you really want to understand the place go on the roof and sit there

I could go on… On the face of it, this should be a top nightlife venue – a city centre rooftop bar overlooking the illuminated Acropolis! So how do they get it sooooo wrong? Damn it all, even in chilly London, we do open-air rooftop bars way better than this! Is it the utter disregard for placing any limit on the numbers of guests, coupled with a complete lack of illumination, resulting in people quite literally falling over each other in the scrum, spilling the extortionately overpriced and badly mixed drinks they’ve just queued up for half an hour to buy? Is it the physical limitation of having one single elevator, capable of carrying just 3 people, not only to ferry customers to the 6th floor roof, but also all the other guests staying in the 5 floors of hotel rooms that sit under the bar? In short, the A for Athens bar is a pain to get to, and once there, it’s a pain to be there. Save your time and spend your money more wisely in the infinitely cooler Six Dogs or Taf bars. A is also very definitely for Avoid!

Propably the best view in Athens. Great service, nice music but try not to go there on rush hour because you will get upset with the crowd and the lack of space.
