ATHENS, Greece - The Galaxy Bar at Hilton Athens was named one of the top 10 rooftop bars in the world by Premier Traveler magazine, the leading, award-winning American publication for frequent and luxury travelers.

In each issue, Premier Traveler's panel of globe-trotting experts select only the best of the best to be listed in their exclusive PT Picks list. In the February/March 2015 issue, the magazine revealed ten of the best rooftop bars around the globe and Galaxy Bar ranked among the elite. The magazine had done all of its own research before giving Galaxy Bar its ranking, selecting the most outstanding choices to be presented to its readers for inspiring "don't-miss" travel ideas.

Galaxy Bar's popularity can be attributed to its spectacular panoramic view of Athens at night, including the Acropolis, as well as its huge selection of cocktails, sophisticated DJ sets and impeccable service.

Bart van de Winkel, area general manager, Hilton Greece & Cyprus, said, "Galaxy Bar is not just a hotel bar, but also the favorite meeting place of the Athenians for more than 50 years. Having it recognized as an international point of reference and listed among the most prestigious bars in the world, it is indeed very flattering. We would like to thank Premier Traveler for this fantastic distinction".
