Athens has plenty of places for a bit of drinking and socializing under the night sky. Bios (84 Pireos) boasts a fantastic view of the Acropolis at night, and regular sets by local DJs ensure this is a more high-tempo experience than your average rooftop bar. Another multi-function venue run by the same arts and culture organization is Romantso (3 Anaxagora), housed in an old printers. It hosts a wide range of club nights in the downstairs venue all year round, but their decadent roof parties, held throughout the summer, are truly special.
Latraac (63-65 Leonidou) is a skate bowl by day, but after nightfall it becomes a solid party spot, hosting more avant-garde gigs and DJ sets. The all-day café-bar-music venue six d.o.g.s (6-8 Avramiotou) has long been a staple of Athens nightlife and the courtyard bar is a true urban oasis. You can enjoy beers and cocktails by candlelight beneath the trees and tall buildings that surround the space. If you want to keep the party going, the adjoining indoor venue regularly hosts some of the biggest names in dance music and is a dependable destination every weekend.
