When it comes to rooftops , Paris doesn't take vacations. The proof with the coolest rooftops in the capital.
The East Side spot to be seen and seen, this is where it happens! Normal: in the firmament of their demented hotel in Nation , the Karmitz brothers are opening a rooftop bar which promises to be the most popular nerd-bobo stronghold of the summer in an ultra-stylized scene: wooden parquet, green decor, cocktail bar and private BBQ every evening until midnight.
The must of the program? The open-air film club on the 7th floor in collaboration with MK2 with a 4-meter screen behind which the Eiffel Tower will sparkle. In short: our new favorite room.

Pedzouille La Grange
You are surely already familiar with Pedzouille , the locavore restaurant in the 10th arrondissement which sources its products directly from the farm. Good news for the inhabitants of the 15th: the collective which defends the peasants in town lands on the rooftop of the Novotel Porte de Versailles and promises to be the spot for good casual and festive where we tumble in band and which will compete with the Perchoir .
The promise: a “ rooftop with a view of the Eiffel Tower without breaking your PEL ”. The revenge of the terroir and low prices has sounded: large tables d'hôtes where French dishes are served over a wood fire, prepared in collaboration with chef Gabriele Faiella (ex-Anahi & Beefbar). But also bottles of living wine to fill yourself, and digeos to play extra time. Brunch to treat hangovers is also taken by storm. Online reservations are already open: place your bets!

Finally a new hotel 20 meters from the Troca metro which aims to move the lines in the 16th and cheer up the bombastic codes of the hotel industry in coworking and dog café mode.

To perfect the chill holiday atmosphere, the space hosts a petanque court , a space to play Mölkky and a Ricard pop-up on August 28. In short: book your deckchairs asap on 01 45 50 50 70.
