If you like great views you'll love this new bar

I have a strange confession to make for someone who makes his living writing about wine, food and travel: I have never been to Greece. 

I've always wanted to; somehow never managed it. 

One of the places that's on my radar, should I get to Greece as a doddery old bloke, is the luxury boutique hotel Grace Santorini.


Reopened last year after extensive renovations, Grace Santorini is this week launching its "destination Champagne lounge, 363, and a partnership with Dom Pérignon and Moët & Chandon for the 2017 summer season.

So we've got a dream island, we've got Champagne, and we've got these views. I'm in!

Set to offer one of the world’s best bar views, the new champagne lounge sits 363 metres above sea level overlooking the breath-taking Aegean Sea. 

For the rest of summer, Grace Santorini will partner with Dom Pérignon and Moët & Chandon to host Vintages & Vistas, a series of exclusive Champagne events.


Inside 363, a feature wall is made of lava rock from Santorini using local architectural techniques, with mirrors behind it to reflect the light.

A fully-lit honey onyx bar with brass shelves provides a dramatic statement foil to the dark volcanic stone. The bar is furnished with Emperador marble coffee tables, and barstools and armchairs handmade in Greece and upholstered in C & C Milano fabrics. Adorning the walls is a curated collection of modern art from the renowned Rarity Gallery. 

One day! 

Grace Santorini is only open April to October and room prices start from 600 per night including breakfast and taxes. +30 2286 021300. www.gracehotels.com/Santorini
