363 Champagne Lounge at Grace Santorini,Greece

363 Champagne Lounge at Grace Santorini officially launched in 2017 and has become one of the world’s most iconic view bars. The Champagne Lounge sits 363 metres above sea level overlooking the breath-taking Caldera, providing the ideal vantage point to witness the dramatic changing hues of the legendary Santorini sunset.

For the opening of the bar, Grace Santorini welcomed expert mixologist Yannis Karavias to oversee the development of beverages, working closely with the hotel’s Executive Chef Spyros Agious to provide an unforgettable gastronomic experience. Chef Spyros has devised a menu of light canapés and appetizers for 363, to complement the finest champagnes, cocktails and premium spirits, and using speciality ingredients from the island to provide a distinct flavour.

Yannis has created a series of distinctive cocktails available at 363 including: the gin-based Eleanor cocktail, made with passion fruit elderflower liquor (featured in the top ten of Beefeater Awards in Greece 2013); the champagne cocktail, Christine, with an intense flavour of blackberry; and the very complex Volcano cocktail, paying homage to the volcanic heritage of Santorini. The bar also serves the Grace Cocktail which was designed by world renowned “maestro”, Salvatore Calabrese, for Grace Hotels.

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, upholstered in C & C Milano fabrics. Adorning the walls is a curated collection of modern art from the renowned RARITY GALLERY, the first Greek gallery to exhibit the works of internationally acknowledged contemporary artists.

363 Champagne Lounge at Grace Santorini is a striking, unrivalled space perfect for hotel guests and outside visitors to enjoy memorable sunset cocktails.

Having carefully considered the competitive set on the island, Grace Santorini saw there was an opportunity to launch a leading destination bar in Santorini. The full renovation of the hotel in 2016 allowed for an elevation of not only the interiors but also the service levels and quality of product. This in turn has led to international brands seeing Grace Santorini as a global leader internationally, resulting in a successful partnership with Dom Pérignon and Moët & Chandon for a series of exclusive culinary events at 363.
