Lufthansa has enough flights to/from Athens to justify their own Lufthansa Business Lounge Athens (though Star Alliance partner Aegean has the main Aegean Business Class Lounge Athens next door).
With my Star Alliance Gold status and the Aegean (Economy Class) ticket in hand the agent greeted me and just stamped my boarding pass for Fast Lane usage.
The lounge is very similar to the level of Lufthansa in Lounges in Berlin or Frankfurt. It’s smaller but has proper food (Pasta and Greek Salads at the time of my visit).
It also had multiple white and red wine options plus delicious champagne. There were also several German beers on offer from tap.
On the negative side – the lounge does not offer bathrooms (you will need to use the airport bathrooms which are decent though) and the WiFi is as slow as with the Aegean lounge next door.
The lounge is open until 8 PM every day when the last Lufthansa flight leaves Athens.
This is a quite a decent please to eat and drink – I just wish my flight to Mykonos would not have been delayed until 11 PM…
