Le Perchoir Marais – Temporarily The Best Rooftop Terrace in Paris
You know… I haven’t even been to the original Perchoir. But I don’t care at this point, the Perchoir Marais suits me just fine, and the only time of year I really want to be on a rooftop terrace is in the Summer (or early Fall I suppose). And I love, love, love the Marais location of this terrace, so why do I need to trek all the way over to the 11th when I can head to the heart of Paris!?!
Pour les français : Bambi In Paris a écrit un billet sur le Perchoir.
250 square meters of beautiful view terrace in the absolute heart of the city.
A bar covered with a pretty white tent, and lovely outdoor light garlands, wooden crate benches, bars and seating make a delightfully industrial setting. The vision of the stunning rooftop of the Mairie de Paris and the Eiffel Tower beyond it is a breathtaking view to behold.
Cocktails, a DJ, a view…what else could you ask for from the summer!?! Mingle with the trendy types of those remaining Parisians int he city of lights. A few of them may stick around for the balmy weather months. Chérie and I will be anyway. So you may very well run into me on occasion, getting my fill of a great view. I was there the other night with a few friends, talking over wine, sharing stories and support for one another, and then the icing on the cake : watching the Eiffel tower sparkle at 11pm and then again at midnight… I never, NEVER get tired of it!
If the weather is nice, there is usually a line to get in so plan ahead. If you are a small group or several, you may want to get there at the very start of the evening to secure spots to sit. Enjoy the view, the atmosphere, the sunset, the open sky, Paris…
