If there were only one rooftop to mention, this would be the one. And with reason. This new highly socialite and arty rooftop has just been opened by Jean Phi, the legendary owner of La Perle, at the heart of the Marais and already the hot spot of Paris fashion-week. Imagine a giant BBQ placed on top of the 98 Rue Vieille-du-Temple with a 360° view and a very cosy open roof that enables chilly-willy Parisiennes to stay warm.

The VIP potential of this unique terrace? Here, seats are rare and well deserved. An official reservation on the site is a must. After passing by the private elevator, the staircase, an XXL print by artist Philippe Ramette, you have reached the summit. Champagne, good sounds and grilled delights: you can start enjoying!

Hôtel National

If fashion week were to have an official restaurant, it would surely be Hôtel National, HQ of buyers, fashion editors, models, agents: they are all squatting the amazing patio around a drink and Italian-style tapas (mini breaded scallops, arancinis, meat balls…), unless you prfeer Il Ristorante, for their fab no gluten pasta sans gluten or a vitello tonato. Ultimate coolness: hanging out on the rooftop for an open sky drink if there is enough room.

Froufrou

Juan Arbelaez in the kitchen + Alexis Mabille as decorator: the winning combo of this new de restaurant under the columns of the Théâtre Edouard VII sets the tone! You are at the heart of the most festive hangout of the season where one finds all the fashionaistas and night owls. One the programme: typical French dishes to share, burlesque shoes to make the temperature rise and a speakeasy to play night-time prolongations.

Girafe

After Monsieur Bleu and Loulou, the duo Gourcuff + Malafosse does it again with a stunning decor signed Joseph Dirand, the star designer. Distinctive sign of the place: its heated terrace, eyeball to eyeball with the Eiffel Tower and a wild seafaring menu that's swings from a ceviche to Milanese-style breaded fish. Ideal.

Le Bar des Prés

By inaugurating a sushi and cocktails bar with a highly New York style made in Saint Germain des Prés inspiration two years ago, Cyril Lignac could not imagine he was signing one of the most glam socialite addresses in Paris.
