This summer, after what we’ve recently been through, we’re all ready for some conviviality and fresh air. There’s one perfect way to combine the two; the rooftop terraces of Paris. Here’s our selection of the best...
Summer rooftops: the classics...
Let's start with two essential addresses: Printemps Haussmann and Galeries Lafayette. These two department stores, with their superb architecture, both boast summer rooftop terraces where they can offer you amazing gastronomic experiences combined with breathtaking views. If you want a retro atmosphere, colour, trendy objects and healthy, ethnic cuisine, welcome to Creatures, perched on the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette. Meanwhile, a wonderful gastronomic journey, local produce and the work of passionate artisans await you at Printemps des Gofaits, situated atop the Printemps Haussmann!
... and the originals
Let's start with the newest member of the Perchoir group of rooftop terraces; the new Perchoir Rive Gauche Porte de Versailles. Situated next to the first urban farm in Paris, it occupies the roof of one of the pavilions in the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre. Here, you’ll find space, greenery and entertainment. This new Perchoir is a vibrant and exciting place that features contemporary art exhibitions and other events... all awaiting your discovery! Finally, if you want to privately hire a rooftop, the 43 Cocktail Bar on the roof of the Holiday Inn hotel is the place for you!
Take a cool break, escape for a moment from the bustle of the streets, enjoy the loveliness of a sunset while sipping a cocktail... rise to the rooftops of Paris this summer!
