Point α Bar is the closest Athens rooftop bar to the Acropolis and has without a doubt, one of the best, uninterrupted views of the Acropolis.
By a special creative team Point a and the Herodion Hotel, express the orignial Top Greek Hospitality to their very eclectic guests offering a 'mixology" of fresh- Greek spicies' flavored cocktails and Greek seafood dishes and tapas, so as to "mix" at best Athens their visitors' food- drink- and- mood with one of the loveliest city rooftop view of the world.
Seems the recipie is truly successful , since Point α has been recently awarded second place in the “Top Hidden Gems” category for the 2017 Restaurant 100 Greece Awards, a distinction voted by foodies from the business area of lifestyle, gastronomy, arts and communication .
What makes the scene here special is the fact that both the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum dominate the background.It’s like having two views of the Acropolis, as the top floor of the museum, which is lit at night, is set up like the Parthenon and has many of the Parthenon’s original statues and friezes. Feels a lot like walking in a dream....
Cocktail: Vodka, M.B. coconut liquor, Aperol infused sage, fresh lime juice, pepper, strawberry puree, blackberry puree, basil
Enjoy Nostalgia with this tapas: fish and chips
It has a view from the south, by its placemats obviously prooving that the Parthenon Temple is just 289 meters away, but Point α Bar’s rooftop view is so unique because you see the Acropolis full screen and a few steps more, you get the full spectrum view of the New Acropolis Museum from the other side, only 85 meters away.
....Its wonderfully arty take on food, the intoxicating urban view – and all the clever little touches, such as the coasters and napkins which have the numbers 289 and 85 marked on them like some secret code to remind us of the distance (in metres!) from the Acropolis and the museum respectively

Indeed the Warwick International Hotel group, where Herodion Hotel is a member could not have a better location in Athens. Conveniently adjacent to the Acropolis and next to the new Acropolis museum, steps from Athens the old town, Plaka district, and a mere 15 minute walk to the very heart of the city, Syntagma Square, Herodion is the perfect hotel for both business and leisure travel, Discreet luxury in a hidden Athens that not many visitors will ever experience.
The incredible variety of Greek herbs and their flavorful yet healthy qualities inspire POINT a dishes , tapas and cocktails.
POINT a has become year by year, and by the enthousiasm of every single guest who is treated by the original Greek top quality service of Philoxenia, one of the top choices that combines a special view with the opportunity to indulge in a gourmet Greek cuisine experience, delicious Mediterranean cuisine with traditional Greek influences.
"I crave to learn more about this finely run property., ' wrote Nicholas Kontis in a huffington post article about Herodion Hotel, which he calls "an impressive property by a unique brand of hospitality"
"I ask Mrs. Tsimidopoulos, ' he continues, " how she classifies her stunning hotel. “I do not particularly care for the words boutique hotel.” “We are a lifestyle brand hotel.” I further ask Tsimidopoulos if she has any formal training in the hospitality industry. As it turns out the reflective Tsimidopoulos informs me that she is Swiss trained at the Centre International de Glion, and later studied hospitality
administration management at Florida International University. She continues, “In a sense there are two schools of hotel management philosophy, the Swiss and the Europeans are perhaps more service oriented and in U.S. they teach standards and techniques in quality control.” I leave our meeting satisfied that I have discovered the true meaning of a successful marriage in hospitality. Treating her employees like family truly seems to be a Tsimidopoulos family recipe for success.
The vanguard director, Tsimidopoulos informs me, Nicholas Kontis wrote, “we continued to do well even as Athens was not in the greatest financial shape, but I believe that the worse times are behind us now.” “Things seem to be recovering in Athens.”
