1 City 5 Ways Athens: Night Owl

1 2 3 4
Late-Night Activity
Gazi Neighborhood
Head to the edgy Gazi neighborhood, home to Athens' artistic scene. For cocktails, settle in at Hoxton, which looks like a gallery and plays the latest alternative tunes.
Afternoon Activity
Sit poolside
After relaxing poolside at the Hilton, dress chic, press R (for rooftop) in the elevator, then sip a cocktil in the hotel's open-air Galaxy Bar, with its stellar views of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill.
Breakfast and Morning Activity
Da Capo
After a heavy night on the town, sip a coffee at Da Capo on Kolonaki Square (make sure to wear wraparound sunglasses so you fit in). Try a medium sweet Greek coffee or a freddo (cappuccino or expresso with ice). Afterward, pick up a tiropita (cheese pie), which are sold at every Athenian bakery.


Wander down Tsakalof Street in the swanky Kolonaki neighborhood for a style fix. Head to Kalogirou for the latest shoes, ogle the jewels at llias Lalaounis and explore the concept store Obervatory with its impressive facade.
Where to Stay
Hilton Athens
Originally built in the 1960s, the Hilton offers plenty of jet-set chic thanks to its acres of marble, pared-down rooms with terraces overlooking the Acropolis and oversized pool, an urban oasis on sweltering afternoons.
