In the lobby of the Athenaeum InterContinental of Athens, at the Café Vienna and Bistrot Vienna high aesthetics blend with superb cuisine and the melodic accompaniment of live music – accentuated by Athens’ most delicious desserts.
At Café Vienna, each day reveals new musical journeys and sweet surprises
Just before you head home at the end of the day, or during a break at work, for a private rendezvous or a professional meeting, Café Vienna is the ideal spot – with a tempting array of mouth-watering desserts to accompany a hot or cold drink. Every afternoon, the discreet and relaxing sounds of a piano evoke the feelings of wellbeing and comfort, which are present throughout the hotel. And on Saturday afternoons, a piano, cello and violin provide an even greater range of musical enjoyment.
At Bistrot Vienna, March is juicy and delicious!
In March, our international menu features burgers: Italian, Greek, New York style, American premium and even… sweet! The burgers served at Bistrot Vienna are fragrant, juicy, incredible and unbeatable. You have lots of time to sample all the different kinds of burgers and to decide which one (or ones) best suit your taste. For an entire month, our kitchen’s main protagonist will be burgers made from: veal, lamb, chicken and American Black Angus beef – all accompanied by potatoes, mushrooms and onions cooked in various ways, all of them delicious. And to cap it off, our chef presents the Fuanaja Burger in a chocolate nest with strawberries. And all the while, live music plays gently in the background.
At the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens, March takes on an air of creativity.
