GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar

The view from the GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar is breathtaking. In the most ideal location, the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus hill and the Parliament are truly magnificent.

The Restaurant - awarded by the Wine Spectator magazine three years in a row - serves New Mediterranean cuisine with emphasis on quality raw materials and excellent technique.

For breakfast or lunch, the elegant and warm environment of the GB Roof Garden restaurant creates a tranquil atmosphere, while dinner is perfect when the city lights come on and the cosmopolitan aura becomes apparent.

Winter Garden, City Lounge

A tranquil oasis in the heart of the Hotel Grande Bretagne, the Winter Garden offers the city's most elegant and enchanting refuge for European breakfast, light lunch, high tea or dinner accompanied by live piano music.

A beautiful extension of the hotel's historic lobby, the Winter Garden is a beautiful atrium space, designed to offer guests a respite far from the dash of city life.

Gorgeous stained glass adorns the ceiling, graceful columns underscore the impressive height and the intricate marble floor grounds the space with masterful detailing. The opulence of the setting is offset by a delicate palette of cream and gold, and an abundance of natural light from the windows that overlook the atrium garden. Potted palms add a whimsical touch to the décor. A soothing water feature and the soft tinkling of live piano music echo the overall feeling of calm and refined turn-of-the-century elegance.

Reminiscent of a scene from an epic film such as "1900" directed by world-renowned Bernardo Bertolucci – a past guest of the hotel – the Winter Garden City Lounge celebrates world-class hospitality and style. The sparkle of crystal glasses, the rich hand of damask napkins and the gleam of polished silver speak to the impeccable service you may enjoy here throughout the day.

The café-style restaurant of the Winter Garden is serving a multitude of purposes – a stylish spot to enjoy a drink with friends, a discreet setting for a business meeting, or a lovely start to the day over fresh-brewed coffee and warm-from-the-oven pastries. A light lunch menu and tasty small plates are also available throughout the day.

The Wine Library

We proudly introduce you to a unique setting, the Wine Library, located at the mezzanine of the GB Corner at the Hotel Grande Bretagne, a distinct “library”, showcasing all the 3.500 wine labels of the historic hotel.

The impressive 19th – century table serves for private wine tastings and unique wine pairing meetings, while the wines are stored to the appropriate temperature within the eye-catching glassy showcase.

Let the Head Sommelier of the Hotel Grande Bretagne, Evangelos Psofidis, introduce you to indigenous Greek and international varieties, as well as propose the wine that exclusively responds to your taste preferences.

Alexander's Bar

The beloved 18th century tapestry of Alexander the Great is the focal point of the Alexander's Bar, next to the Winter Garden Lounge. With its clubby atmosphere you will want to linger over a classic cocktail, a refined brandy or an exquisite cognac.

There are many reasons why the famous Alexander's bar in Athens was voted as the Best Hotel Bar in the world by Forbes magazine, starting with its undeniably warm and relaxing atmosphere. The authentic & rare 18th century tapestry, featuring Alexander the Great entering into Gaugamela, is a trademark fixture of the hotel, proudly hanged by the radiant wooden bar.

The equally impressive drinks menu includes such connoisseur choices of the famous extra rare single malt Macallan series of 1937, 1940, 1946, 1952, 1969, 1973, and the astonishing Luis XIII Black Perl edition. If cognac or brandy is your nightcap of choice, the Carlos Primero Grande Reserva brandy and the complete range of Hennesey cognacs, including the rare Paradis and Richard Hennesey labels, never fail to delight with their smooth finish and rich golden color.

Alexander's Bar signature mixed drink – the Mandarin Napoleon Select – also deserves your attention for its surprising blend of Dubonnet Rouge, Grand Marnier, gin and fragrant essential oil of Sicilian tangerines.

Alexander's Cigar Lounge

Experience luxury in the most up to date cigar bar in town. Alexander's Cigar Lounge is a sophisticated space located in the inner garden of the Hotel Grande Bretagne and offers an ideal setting for enjoying fine cigars, wines, liquors, coffee or tea with a friendly and discreet service. With its colonial elegance and warm atmosphere, it is a unique place for relaxation.

Explore a great selection of Cuban cigars with unique flavors and enriching aromas. The variety available includes blends such as mild, medium bodied and full bodied cigars. Their tobacco blend is exceptional and all of them are “hecho a mano”- handmade.

As for the sizes you can taste mythic vitolas like gran coronas, lonsdales, figurados, robustos and models like petit coronas.

Amongst others, the high level service includes cutting and lighting of cigars and their marriage with drinks.

THE ATRIUM of Alexander's Lounge

On the first floor of the Hotel Grande Bretagne, a "secret garden" welcomes you and takes you in an oasis, away from the city's noise, while still in the heart of Athens.

Surrounded by olive trees, laurels, small cypress trees and flowers that lavish their colors and beauty to the venue, THE ATRIUM of Alexander's Lounge welcomes the guests who wish to unwind in a setting of distinctive appeal. Exceptional cocktails and spirits, fine cigars, as well as select coffee and tea and our awarded team of bartenders who will willingly guide you to unique choices and combos.

Besides, the Executive Chef Asterios Koustoudis with the culinary and pastry team have created a menu inspired by Latin America. Vegetarian tacos with legume and vegetable patty, sour cream and rocket leaves, organic blue corn nachos and guacamole sauce are only some of the options to follow from this special menu.

This summer promises to bring unique moments. THE ATRIUM of Alexander's Lounge will host some of them.
