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.
