Ochre & Brown Boutique Hotel

7 Leokoriou St.
Athens , Greece
30 210 331-2940

Since the 2004 Olympics, Athens has undergone a face-lift, and the city is now hitting its stride with design-oriented restaurants, shops, and hotels. At the 11-room O&B Boutique Hotel, walking distance from the Parthenon, streamlined dark brown furniture is juxtaposed with flashes of color: a scarlet curtain here, tangerine satin cushions there. That splashy exuberance matches the tenor of the vibe outside, in the up-and-coming Psyrri district. The lobby lounge and restaurant is a favorite meeting spot for area artists, who congregate over signature cocktails mixed from berries, vanilla, vodka, and juice.
