Rooftop views are de riguer in Athens, a capital where the vantage point of the Acropolis is paramount. Enter the Art Lounge, the 7th floor rooftop restaurant of NEW Hotel, where the view expands across the city’s collage of colored rooftops. More of a clubby penthouse (think Soho House mid-century marries a distinctively contemporary art vibe), the space features a unique library with more than 2000 art book titles. This is thanks to the hotel’s owner, international arts patron Dakis Joannou, who also commissioned designer duo Fernando and Humberto Capana to helm the design of the entire hotel. If you overstay your welcome, book into the penthouse suite where you can sleep on a terrace under the stars nearly touching the Acropolis.
