14. October 2011: Alia Lounge & Bar @Arion, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa

| October 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

The club sandwich (EUR 18.00) in the Alia Bar at the Astir Arion Resort Spa in Athens is okay. It is not really outstanding as the toast bread was not toasted enough and they saved in egg and bacon. But still, okay to eat.

What was way better though was the special drink they serve in the hotel bar, “Tears of Chios” (EUR 15.50). The drink tastes good as it has this resin of a the Greek mastic tree in it which comes from the Greek island Chios. It is a taste I was not able to determine exactly but it is definitely refreshing and new. Also, the drink has the right degree of strength.

The bar is located in the hotel lobby and the place is absolutely spacious and besides having unbelievable much space, one has also an amazing view. It is great to be located right next to the sea, I must admit!

The bartender who is also the waiter at the same time is very friendly, always up for a joke, but you have to qait quite a bit sometimes until he realizes that you’re there or that you want to order something. Otherwise, no complaints at all, he is charming and entertaining without being too much on to you.

Overall, the Alia Bar in the Astir Arion Resort Spa is definitely a great place to have a couple of drinks – the club sandwich is not so recommendable though.
