Lounge Bar View Rooftop is situated atop the Hotel Novotel Paris Vaugirard Montparnasse as an epic two-floor terrace. This venue recently reopened, to the great pleasure of locals eager to soak up incredible 180° views of the most beautiful city in Europe, and boasts a completely new refurbished design. But it had already been a favourite for the past three years. It’s the ideal place to drink cocktails and eat snacks while admiring the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré-Coeur and the adorable line of Parisian rooftops given the centrality of its location. What makes its menu stand out is how it honours Paris by naming its cocktails after each district. Over summer, they organise thematic parties, such as mojito parties in July.

While the iconic art deco swimming pool gem of this venue closed down in 1989, it reopened in spring 2014 as a refurbished swimming pool and four-star hotel complex. The complex’s stunning rooftop bar overlooks both the pool and the beautiful city beyond. It’s a popular spot to simply sit back and people-watch, daydream or enjoy a date thanks to its laidback surroundings – and the menu prices are very affordable too. They offer a great wine selection from a typical Parisian winery and a delicious selection of gourmet nibbles for a peckish appetite. If you’re looking to eat something more substantial, though, they serve a wonderful dinner at 7.30 pm and at 9.30 pm accompanied by a DJ.

It’s an incredible structure that consists of two domes that look like igloos from the Far North, with a cocooning vibe that evokes tranquillity and serenity.

The stunning terrace atop the Hôtel National Des Arts et Métiers in the 3rd arrondissement offers one of the very best 360° views of Paris, lounging across the most heart-stopping monuments. It’s one of the smaller venues featured on this list, with a modest handful of just 30 seats. But that’s precisely what contributes to its cosy, intimate ambiance. There’s no unpleasant hustle and bustle, just a luscious green vibrancy blossoming from the garden decor and a friendly welcome. It’s hidden on the 7th floor of this gorgeous hotel, so it definitely promises a calmer alternative to the inner city evening chaos.

Hotel Raphael’s terrace is the place to be if you’re looking for a spot of luxury. While you must be prepared for the somewhat pricey nature of the venue, paying 16 euros for a Coca-Cola, for example, you should also remember that you’re not actually paying for the drink or the food. Really, you’re paying for the breathtaking view that is completely unrivaled. It reaches from the famous Arc de Triomphe – which is actually so close it’s like you can almost touch it – right through to the iconic Eiffel Tower, even across to Montmartre’s Sacré-Coeur and the enormous Louvre. There’s no better way to enjoy the sight than by sipping on their signature ‘Raphael’ champagne cocktail. It’s meticulously fashioned with Grand Brut, strawberry purée, lime and manzana verde.

Hotel Des Grands Boulevards is a perfect alternative for a modest budget, while still providing elegance and sophistication. It’s not quite as expensive as Hotel Raphael, but the views are still spectacular. The rooftop bar is perched atop a chic and adorable boutique hotel, decorated by the renowned designer Dorothée Meilichzon. It’s a real pleasure to visit as its interiors mix the decorative splendour of the Louis XVI period with the more pastoral designs of Marie Antoinette in her Versailles farm, with rustic coated walls and worn wooden furniture. However, the rooftop strives to embrace the airy nature of the enchanting Parisian skyline, mixing cosiness with classical taste.

Le Perchoir is one of the most authentic rooftop bars to grace the Parisian skyline. It’s where all the locals go to escape the tourist crowds and so, it is tucked away at the top of an unsuspecting building on a quiet street. While Le Perchoir might not boast a list of famous monuments, like the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe, it’s charming in its own way. The 7th floor offers a breathtaking panorama of the city’s quintessentially Parisian rooftop architecture for a relaxed and authentic evening.
