Jaw-dropping views, amazing cocktails and inspired cuisine: an Athens experience you won’t forget. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Point-a Bar & Restaurant at the Herodion Hotel in the heart of the Greek capital.

Point-a is more than a restaurant, it’s the absolute experience of Greece.

Located in the upscale Makrygianni district, this 4-star luxury hotel is ideal for guests seeking to get the most of their trip to Athens.

The location alone speaks volumes of Herodion Hotel’s hospitality, which not only brings you to the heart of ancient Greek glory but also a few steps from the most happening spot in town.

Just imagine sipping on your fabulous cocktail on a soft lit, jasmin-filled rooftop with ambient music in the background and spectacular views to the Parthenon, the Herodion Theater, the contemporary Acropolis Museum and … the stars.

If I were you, I would start off with the signature Herodion Cocktail featuring the smooth Metaxa brandy, rum, top class Greek honey, aromatic bitters and topped off with a “tsoureki” (Greek sweet bread) mist.

Besides its fantastic cocktails, Point-a is a great place to learn more about the wonderful world of Greek wines.

Why not chose from the carefully curated wine list which features excellent Greek choices like the classic Robola exclusively produced on the isle of Kefalonia or the suave Kidonitsa white, the rich Limniona red from Tyrnavos (Mt Olympus), and of course, top it off with the world-famous Santorini Vinsanto dessert wine. If wine is not your thing, there are also Greek beers on the list, virgin “mocktails”, and fortified wines.

Details matter. It’s innovative Mediterranean cuisine all the way, fused with elements borrowed from Greek culinary traditions.

“Our aim is to create recipes that combine original ingredients and offer the feeling of homemade cuisine: Greek and Mediterranean flavors that we all love but … a little differently!”, the two chefs told GTP Headlines.

What’s great about Herodion Hotel is its easy access either by foot or metro to main Athens sites and museums not to mention the high-end shopping district and buzzing bar scene.

Make sure to visit the Acropolis Museum and the Parthenon, an UNESCO World Heritage site, watch a concert at the Herodion, and of course, enjoy a stroll along the ancient Areopagitou walkway. Also pay a visit the National Museum of Contemporary Art. And if you’ve had enough for the day, unwind with a dip in the Herodion Hotel’s rooftop jacuzzi.
