Zonars, Athens

Zonars, the hangout of the well-heeled since the ‘30s, has been rechristened to Athenée, but retains every bit of its retro glamour.


Almost as old as the Parthenon (established in 1939), the historic glamour and charm of Zonars has been restored and elevated to make it the ultimate downtown Athens spot. Chef Nikos Skliras offers delicious dishes from brunchtime to bedtime, while Anna Santasetto showcases her expertise on the sushi menu. To end your meal on a sweet high, legendary Greek patisserie delivers on its tradition with diet-busting throwback desserts, like ice-cream sundaes. The rooms inspires with its high-end design elements and the beautiful crowd of celebrities, fashionistas, Athenians and visitors it always attracts.
