Top 6 rooftop bars and courtyards in Athens

Olympias Rooftop Bar Athens

These are special drinking and eating options on rooftops and manicured courtyards in spring and summer in Athens.

Spring and summer are the perfect times to enjoy Athens's countless rooftop bars and courtyards.

We chose three of our favourite courtyards and three beautiful rooftops to enjoy drinks in the warm weather.

The courtyards

1. Black Duck Garden

Black Duck Garden

For years, Black Duck has provided great moments of enjoyment and relaxation to Athenians and tourists.

At Black Duck Garden, breakfast starts with coffee and delicious breakfasts, and wine and Mediterranean cuisine continue late into the evening in a pure oasis atmosphere.

A regular, verdant urban garden of nobility and quiet luxury, it is welcoming and open for every possible occasion, from a romantic date to a business dinner.

Address: 5-7 Paparrigopoulou, Athens

2. Teras


A little nostalgic, a little retro, a little Instagram, this courtyard can relax us from the frenetic pace of everyday life. The setting at Teras is cool, and the bar specialises in cocktails.

Teras serves exquisite delicacies to accompany the drink but also hosts monthly art exhibitions, designers and DJ sets on its ground, while on the first floor, there are usually interesting exhibitions.

Address: Theodoritou Bresthenis 45, Neos Kosmos

3. La Caza Azul

La Casa Azul

La Caza Azul in Peristeri serves exotic dishes, cocktails, and good coffee and plays great music.

The blue wall is adorned by a lovely mural with the slogan "Pinto Flores Asi No Mueren" (I paint the flowers so they will not die). Frieda's line, of course. What's more springy?

Address: Thivon 143, Peristeri

Three terraces

1. The Zillers

The Zillers

This super-terrace of the hotel of the same name is distinguished by the green hanging garden on one wall and, of course, the unbeatable view of the Acropolis and Metropolitan Square.

Greek and international vineyards are on the wine list, and fine coffee is used to start the day with the necessary dose of luxurious well-being that we deserve, but above all, gastronomy.

Chef Vassilis Roussos works culinary magic, while pastry chef Giorgos Platinos curate the inspired desserts at The Zillers.

An evening on the roof is a real experience.

Address: Mitropoleos 54

2. Olympias Rooftop Bar

Olympias Rooftop Bar

The menu on the impressive terrace with a breathtaking view of the Acropolis includes coffee but also tasty proposals with Greek and Mediterranean dishes.

At the same time, excellent cocktails are prepared behind the comfortable, luxurious bar. DJs are hosted every week for afternoon and evening sets.

Enjoy your drink at the bar with the perfect view of the heart of Athens on a rooftop that very few have discovered. It can give you some truly peaceful moments.

Address: Athenas 57

3. Bios


Here, we are talking about the roof epic, synonymous with the Athenian summer, which brought to the city the supreme innovation of the "papotos," a cocktail in the form of a granita stick.

Delicious burgers, drinks and nice music make up the perfect setting for a pampered outing with your friends or partner.

But you can also go alone. At Bios, no one is ever alone. Every now and then, a familiar face will meet to sip the first wine of the evening.

Address: Piraeus 84, Kerameikos
