Culture, Arts & Fine Dining

If you prefer to attend a performance or concert, on the 6th and 7th floor of the Onassis Cultural Centre-Stegi, you can experience fine dining at the Hytra Restaurant & Bar. The menu, following the transformational cultural approach of the Centre, is inspired by memories from Greek flavors emerging from traditional recipes, which have been executed in a contemporary way, with modern inspiration and aesthetics.

If you have chosen to live the experience of the Megaron, in the gardens of the Athens Concert Hall, you will find Fuga with a sharing-style menu inspired by premium and ethically-sourced produce featuring balanced recipes with cosmopolitan global flare from Asia, Latin America and Mediterranean. 

The night after a performance at the open-air theatre, Odeon of Herodes Atticus shall continue to the Dionysos Zonar’s, the restaurant just opposite to the Acropolis hill or the Strofi historic restaurant, which Greek celebrities often choose for their night out. 

Every Friday, the Restaurant on the 2nd floor of the Acropolis Museum is open until 12 midnight offering special gourmet choices and beautiful night views of the Acropolis. The Restaurant renews its menu with seasonal dishes, using the finest products from every region of Greece, prepared in traditional methods.

Around Monastiraki & Thisseio

As we get closer to the Acropolis Hill and the neighborhood of Plaka with its traditional taverns with live music, from the roof terraces and gardens, you feel you will touch the Parthenon. One of your options is the Zillers Roof Garden at The Zillers Athens Boutique Hotel. Just across the Metropolitan Cathedral, you will find the terrace of Ciel, a cocktail bar and all-day brunch spot. On the Monastiraki square, 360 offers an unparalleled view of the ancient city and a menu enriched with recipes from all regions of Greece.
