Athens is not only a city full of history, it is also a city with a vibrant night scene. Regarding nightlife, the city has a lot to offer from wine bars, beer gardens, bars and clubs to venues with live music. There is something for everyone.  One of my favourite places to go out in Athens at night are the rooftop bars where you can have a drink while admiring the city’s landmarks.

Here is a list of my favourite rooftop bars in Athens:

Galaxy restaurant and bar at Hilton

At the restaurant with the open kitchen, you can enjoy traditional cuisine with a modern flair while at the bar you can unwind with a wide range of creative cocktails, drinks, finger food and sushi.
