A much smaller and intimate outside bar than I expected and luckily for my friend and I arrived early so were able to nab seating round the camp fire.

MA isn't quite what I would define as a rooftop bar however technically it is; a herb garden on top of the roof of the Brunnel tunnel... Just don't expect a view. 

The rooftop is beautifully done, with a small campfire, marshmallows available to toast, lots of beautiful herbs and flowers and a little bar selling beautiful cocktails containing flowers and herbs from the garden.

Fantastic Greek food is also available from a local street food vendor - I would thoroughly recommend the feta pitta. 

Make sure you go on the hourly tour of the tunnel - the eccentric actor does it justice and it's actually very interesting even after work on a Friday! 

What is essential is good weather as there is no shelter on the roof top. You'll want plenty of cash as well or alternatively a few more bars lined up! Annnnd you'll need to book - don't just turn up as it was very busy by 6.30pm.
