Paris: Rooftop Bars

For several years now, rooftop bars have multiplied in the capital, following an already well established phenomenon in New York. The arrival of nice weather makes Parisians want to enjoy the fresh air. A chance to discover a selection of rooftop bars which are responsible for some of the capital's finest hours.

Perched Up High!

Based on the roof of an apartment in the 11th arrondissement, Le Perchoir invested in the 6th and 7th floors. When the weather is nice, the open air bar on the 7th floor gets you away from the city and lets you discover it in 360 degrees. For colder evenings, an indoor bar can accommodate the night owls in search of warmth. Strengthened by this success, a second establishment was created on the roof of BHV Marais. Le Perchoir Marais guarantees a view of the most beautiful places and monuments of the capital, with Notre-dame and the Seine in the forefront.
