TOP 5: the best terraces in Paris
Winter coats are back in the wardrobe, sunglasses are on and arms are bare. Having struggled through the cold of winter, warmer temperatures are slowly starting to emerge, helped along by a sun whose shyness won’t hang around for long. Since the season of after-work drinks and open-air evenings is upon us, we have selected the 5 most beautiful terraces in the capital for you.
1 – The trendiest: Le Perchoir du Marais
A pretty terrace, that’s great, but a pretty terrace on a rooftop, that’s even better. Perched on the roof of LE BHV MARAIS, le Perchoir is the perfect place to enjoy the sun (or the stars) whilst sipping on a delicious cocktail. With decor inspired by a pretty mountain chalet, the summertime rooftop terrace will be here soon!
Entrance on 37 rue de la Verrerie.
No reservation required.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday: from 8.15pm to 2am
Wednesday: from 9.15pm to 2am

2 – The most enchanting: la terrasse du Saint James
A complete redesign for this enchanting summer terrace. Discreetly located in the charming district of the 16th arrondissement of Paris, this luxury hotel has given summer a delicious slice of greenery, which combines bourgeois elegance with an Alice in Wonderland atmosphere. A genuinely peaceful haven to enjoy the nice weather.

3 – The coolest: la terrasse du Nüba
From chic to trendy. Opened in 2013, the Nüba terrace is a 3-in-1. Restaurant, bar and nightclub, its wooden floors, deckchairs, fairy lights and stunning view over the Seine make this one of the busiest addresses in the capital come the first rays of sunshine. Relaxation guaranteed!

4 – The liveliest: la terrasse de La Javelle
More than just a terrace, La Javelle is a “guinguette” terrace. Meaning this west Parisian setting hosts a number of activities alongside its plentiful deckchairs, including tango lessons, DIY courses, games and pop-up hair salons. Come nightfall, dancers are called up to let loose under the coloured lights. What could be better?
