Find seventh heaven amidst the beautiful rooftops of Paris
Published on 9 August 2016, dans Entertainment
If you’re in the mood for a drink, why not reach for the sky and make a stand on the rooftops of Paris? Aim high for your cocktail as you test the phenomenon of the ‘perched bar and terrace’, a concept that is now a very fashionable aspect of the Parisian way of life. The Hotel Université offers some suggestions for enjoying the perfect finish to your day. These are all great high places to enjoy before the end of the summer...
The most inviting perched bars of the capital
At Perchoir Marais, a restaurant and bar located atop the BHV department store amidst the Oberkampf rooftops in the 11th arrondissement, you will experience the exhilarating effect and the extraordinary experience of a unique perspective and close proximity to the stars above Paris.
A sensuous food experience is to be found on the roof of the Galeries Lafayette department store, where you can enjoy the famous 0% fat frozen house yoghurt decorated with fresh fruit, cereals, compote or gateau pieces; the sensation of the season!
Check out the Georges restaurant and bar at the top of the Centre Pompidou, a building appreciated for its arty and contemporary style. One of the most beautiful rooftop locations in Paris, the Georges draws a rather wealthy clientele who are enchanted by the impressively panoramic view over Paris. Pure romance!
For another breath-taking view you can enjoy between tours and shopping, we also recommend the rooftop of the Brasserie Barbès, a new ultra-trendy location right in front of the Tati store. Relax in a lounger and enjoy incredible views of the elevated Metro.
Finally, the Point Ephemere, the latest Parisian rooftop hotspot, can be found on the Quai de Valmy. Sip a drink in the sun and look out over the Canal Saint-Martin. And to make you want to stay perched there even longer, this bar offers concerts, exhibitions and festive events throughout the summer, often free!
