Categories : Flavors and Gastronomy, published on : 7/11/16

You will have many opportunities to stroll through the streets of Paris while staying at The Chess Hotel.  However, you can also take advantage of our capital’s beautiful rooftops and terraces. One of these outdoor spaces may well become your special place to sip a favourite cocktail as you enjoy the stunning view of Paris.  Come and discover unique entertainment venues that are open at all hours of the day and night, for example, the Luxor, The George or Zyriab by Noura, or the roof of the Institute of Arab World! Here is a selection of some of our favourites:

Point Éphémère

This Paris concert hall on the Saint-Martin canal has a wonderful rooftop where you can enjoy laid back evenings or spend time with friends. Go along to relax on the loungers and enjoy a fabulous sunset. It’s best to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Mama Shelter

Overlooking the most popular district of Paris, the Mama Shelter roof terrace is one of the capital’s most iconic rooftops.  A giant barbecue awaits, making it an excellent choice for long summer evenings with friends. The Mama Shelter’s team advises you to book before planning your evening!

The 43 Cocktail Bar

Located just a few steps from the famous Notre Dame Cathedral; this rooftop offers the best views of the city’s monuments.  Sample refreshing cocktails in a setting that is relaxed and friendly. Well worth a visit!

Le Perchoir Marais

The place to be seen in Paris during summer, the Perchoir Marais rooftop at the top of the BHV Marais is perched on the 7th floor of a beautiful building. Highlights include an innovative summer menu that is enhanced by a creative cocktail list and an electric atmosphere. This summer, The Perchoir Marais reinvents the terrace of BHV as a real urban jungle; the wooden deck sports new décor that combines palm trees with a green toile de Jouy wall.
