Suntagma Square has a lot of bars and restaurants, but probably the most amazing bar around this area is the Gin Joint bar. The place is not really huge but is really nice. Personally, I was impressed not only by the cocktails but also by the interior of this place. As you can probably guess, most cocktails are with Gin. Still, even if you are not a fan of the Gin you can find all kinds of other drinks. If you want to drink some nice cocktails and if you want to relax from the long day, you can visit Gin Joint.

Rooftop Bars are definitely popular in Athens. Example for that is the Gazarte Bar which is located in the downtown area of the capital of Greece.
