Who doesn’t want their food and beverage to be served with a panoramic view of the Eiffel Tower? Or the Sacré Coeur? Or both? We list the most trendy rooftop bars of the capital right now, just in time for when those warm rays of sunshine beam through the tall trees.

1
Shangri-La, La Rooftop Lounge

Enjoy unique creations such as the Asian Dry Belvedere and watch the sun set over from one of Paris most luxurious hotel terraces. This secret space on the second floor is the perfect balance between Asian hospitality and French art de vivre, with a story that reveals  that this historical monument once was the property of Roland Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon. So why not privatize the terrace and walk in a Bonaparte’s footsteps?

Maison Blanche

Why not order a bellini to go with the elegant terraces, overlooking the most beautiful monuments of Paris? The stylish decor is exceptional and worthy of a visit alone. The food isn’t bad either, or should we say, as excellent as the sparkling Eiffel tower view at night. Make sure you book a table in advance, if you want to enjoy the restaurant and its view!

Georges

Located on the 6th floor of Centre Pompidou, Georges offers an amazing view of all Paris. Whether you place yourself on the terrace or on the veranda, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the sunset and the lights of Paris. If you are planning a romantic rendez-vous, this is the place to put on your list of choices. Ask for their specialties to make sure that nothing is lost and savour it while Paris gets ready for the night.

Hôtel Raphael

The panoramic is beautifully planted and offers magnificent 360-degree panoramic views over the capital’s skyline, with a rare sight of the Eiffel Tower. The hotel is within walking distance from the Arc of Triumph and the Champs-Elysées and just a few streets away from fashion boutiques and museums. The intimate rooftop garden offers quintessentially French luxury and serves as the perfect watering hole. Make sure to try their signature drink (made with Champagne of course).

5
Terrass”

Ideally situated in a lively quarter, a few cobbled streets away from Sacré Cœur and the Moulin Rouge, lies the Terrass’’ Hotel with all its mystery. Take the elevator to the 7th floor and you’ll discover an intimate and unique setting with endless views over Paris that will leave you wondering if you’re in seventh heaven.

While enjoying the panoramic views over the city, make sure to indulge in a glass of wine as the reviews state the venue to have a great wine selection. The leather and wooden decor creates an industrial chic feel of intimate setting and the atmosphere is reminiscent of a bustling Parisian bistro.
