The Evripidis Hotel in Athens, Greece, unveiled a new rooftop concept following a redesign from Athens-based design studio Fluo. Spanning nearly 1,600 square feet, the Art Deco-inspired space includes a bar and breakfast area that overlooks the city’s Psiri district as well as the Acropolis.

The renovation added gold spheres, velvet cushions and marble surfaces that give an Art Deco-feel to the wedge-shaped space. There is a covered terrace area that has tiled terrazzo floor. A glass roof and floor-to-ceiling glass windows in this sun room provide views across the city.

The circular marble-topped tables are surrounded with velvet-covered dining chairs in pastel shades of blue, pink, green and grey. These are accompanied by long banquettes with upholstered velvet seats that line the wall, and smaller tables for pairs of diners, as well as a row of bar stools.

What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


Elsewhere in the bar and seating areas, floors are covered in a geometric pattern of terrazzo and glossy marble slabs that jut into areas of herringbone wood parquet.

A number of the walls are divided diagonally into two triangular forms. These triangular wall panels are decorated with gold filagree laid over beveled glass that form intricate patterns.

There are also metal arches painted in gold, referencing neoclassical patterns, while the gilt accents are complemented with minimal, sculptural lights also in gold.

The designers also installed a water fountain at the center of the room where guests can refill their own water bottles. It references ancient Greek fonts.

Ceilings are painted in terracotta pink as a reference to the "intense light of the restless sun" in Greece. Meanwhile, whitewashed walls complement the marble walls in the bathroom stalls and the marble top of the bar in the central triangle.
