Quantcast

The new rooftops to squat this summer

Nouveaux Rooftops

The rooftop season is open, and everyone goes there from their best view. We tested three new ones that are making the buzz. So rather Paris center or Greater Paris? Follow us to gain height or chill with your family.

Most Instagrammable

Last stage of the transformation of the Louvre Post Office, the rooftop of the Madame Rêve hotel is creating a buzz in the heart of Paris. You can access it directly at 43 rue Etienne-Marcel without going through the 5-star hotel or the Plume restaurant. On the 4th floor, in a green decor, you can admire the landscape, the view of Saint-Eustache and the Center Pompidou , the clouds playing in the blue sky contrasting with the orange deckchairs. We settle among the 250 places, we compete for the best, on the St-Eustache side, or we sit down at the central bar. Cocktails (between €11 to €18) with evocative names such as Parfum d'été flavored with lavender and maki (between €12 to €18) make up an ultra-short menu. We savor and sip, but a waiter quickly clears the table as soon as the glass is finished... Too bad, Madame Rêve doesn't give us time to daydream.

Madame rêve , open every day from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. 43 rue Etienne-Marcel, Paris 1st.

The most 360°

To play tourist, head to the 10th floor of the 5-star Kimpton St-Honoré . This splendid Art Nouveau building was once the Samaritaine Luxe. Upstairs, the Sequoia bar unfolds on the three sides of the roof offering a 360° view of the most beautiful monuments of Paris. We have the Eiffel Tower in our sights and, on the other side, the Sacré Coeur and the dome of the Opéra Garnier. To admire the sunsets on the Iron Lady , the spot is impregnable. As for cocktails , the signature versions (€20) offer interesting mixes, a gourmet “Barbossa” with rum, passion fruit and ginger or a slightly bitter “Sympathy” with tequila, green chartreuse and yuzu. You can privatize the summer lounge for around twenty guests.

Sequoia , open daily from 5 p.m. to midnight. 27/29 boulevard des Capucines, Paris 2nd.

The most kids friendly

Set up after successive confinements by three friends from Montreuil, the Patio rooftop is the new spot in the East of Paris. Perched on the roof of a Decathlon, the view is nothing spectacular, but the place is taken by storm for its cool atmosphere. The 1000m2 of terrace are arranged to please everyone and at any time of the day. On weekends, families come here for lunch, play table tennis, table football or board games. In the evening, place to the fiesta and the DJ sets . It's not likely to disturb the neighborhood of office buildings. Wedged on a swing seat, enjoy a homemade pizza (€10) or a prawn pad thai (€10.90) accompanied by a cocktail with or without alcohol (from €8 to €10), all in an ivy setting , bamboo and wisteria. Possibility to reserve a space from 50 people.

Rooftop patio , open every day from 10 a.m. to midnight, until 10 p.m. on Sundays.

Place Hannah Arendt, 38 avenue Léon Gaumont, 93100 Montreuil.
