Ever dreamt of sipping a well-crafted cocktail while watching the sunset over the Acropolis and all of Athens? Well we have the place just for that: The Galaxy bar at the Hilton Hotel.

Dubbed by the locals “one of the best bars in Athens”, the Galaxy Restaurant & Bar is a gorgeous rooftop with stunning views of the city, delightful appetizers, and seriously good drinks. It’s a no brainer that all the hype 30-somethings in town start flocking here after 5pm. Enjoy sushi platters and typical Greek finger food while sipping on local wine or one of their carefully crafted cocktails. As most luxury hotel bars, it’s a tad pricier than your local thirst trap, but trust us, you’ll want to indulge.

The real MVP of the night isn’t the stunning view but the talented mixologists standing behind the bar. So tear your eyes away from that setting sun for a second and head on inside. While the menu is typical of any cocktail bar, featuring classic but still much enjoyed Manhattans or Moscow Mules, we advise that you simply go up to your bartender and ask for a cocktail creation. With one or two indications – “Do you prefer spicy, sweet or zesty flavors? What’s your beverage of choice?”, they’ll whip up an amazing cocktail on the spot that you’ll get to enjoy with the best view of Athens. What’s not to love ? Our beverage of choice that night was a sparkling number, with hints of Lillet and pomegranate. A festive and gourmet take on the classic Bellini, far more treacherous than it appeared. Nice and attentive, the bartenders will not fail to impress you with their savvy flavor pairings.

Unparalleled views, a stylish clientele, great cocktails, and a delicious food menu make the Galaxy Bar a bona fide Athens hotspot. On weekends, live music attracts a livelier crowd that will give you yet another excuse to call this your favorite hideout.
