Where to Antique in Paris


Perhaps the only thing more romantic than the streets of Paris are the rooftops of Paris. Seeing the City of Lights from an angle typically only captured in movies and postcards is an experience nothing short of magical. And when you throw in hand crafted cocktails and quality cuisine into the mix, it’s euphoric. Paris offers a range of panoramic dining experiences from the rooftops of fine hotels to famous museums to historic buildings. Read on for our pick of the top 10 rooftop restaurants and bars (in no particular order) ranging in ambiance and price range from casual to fancy.

Casual Atmosphere

The word “casual” should be taken lightly here as any experience on the roofs of Paris is most certainly beyond average. Cocktails are still more pricey than what you will find at a corner bistro and the patrons are certainly dressed chic, but the environment is lighter and more lively than a formal tablecloth and candlelight restaurant.

1. Eylau Paris

The creative community of Paris has always resided high amongst the rooftops to find inspiration from a unique vantage point, and Eylau Paris emanates this spirit. Situated on the roof of the Canopy Hotel Trocadero, directly in line with the Eiffel Tower, this artistic restaurant and social space is firmly rooted in supporting its local environment, sourcing exclusively from local businesses and producers in the Paris region.

Arguably the princess of Paris rooftops, Le Perchoir group has four rooftop locations around the city that all dazzle and guarantee a good time. Each featuring an entrance that is rather discreet, the moment you step foot onto the roof of either Ménilmontant (11th), Marais (4th), L’Est (10th), or Porte de Versailles (15th) you will feel transported to a tropical vacation above the concrete jungle. While Le Perchoir is famed for their exquisite cocktails, their snacks and food also do not disappoint.

4. Perruche

Boasting a green garden oasis and Provençal cuisine, it is easy to forget that you are not actually in Nice but in the heart of Paris on the rooftops of Printemps Haussmann. Perruche offers sunny flavors of Mediterranean and Niçoise classics like pissaladière, gambas flambéed, and Menton lemon tart alongside a breathtaking view over the skyline of Paris.

5. Laho

Perhaps the best spot in all of Paris to watch the sunset, Laho is a restaurant conceived around the theme of conviviality and sharing special moments. Just steps away from the Gare de Lyon, a private elevator will take you high above the bustle. With a menu consisting of salty and sweet plates meant for sharing, all ingredients are locally sourced – for the food as well as for the herbal-focused cocktails.

Fine Dining

Moving to the fancier end of the Parisian rooftop dining scene, don your best dress and high heeled shoes. Be prepared to spend a little more for the fare at these fine dining restaurants, but rest assured that the high-level experience will be unforgettable.


Perched atop the mythical Louvre Post Office, the dreamy ROOF restaurant and bar of Hôtel Madame Rêve offers an exceptional panorama of iconic monuments including the Saint-Eustache Church, the Pantheon, and the Centre Pompidou. They feature creative signature cocktails and Japanese-inspired finger food for an exotic experience in the heart of the historical neighborhood.

7. Georges

Up on the roof of the world-renowned contemporary art museum, Le Centre Pompidou, you will find dining tables each with an iconic single-stem red rose just waiting for guests to gather around to feast on the restaurant’s gourmet French cuisine. With one of the absolute best views in the center of Paris, a visit to the museum coupled with a lunch or dinner at Le Georges is an experience not to be missed.

8. Les Ombres

Translated to “the shadows,” Les Ombres is quite literally in the romantic shadow of the marvelous Eiffel Tower. This gastronomic restaurant encased in wall-to-wall glass is like a hanging garden of Mediterranean plants. Innovative French haute cuisine graces the tables which are cast in the shadow of the tower by day and illuminated by the monument’s golden lights by night.

9. Le Jardin du Raphael

Nestled on the top floor of the 5-star Raphael Hôtel just steps away from the world-famous shopping street, the Champs-Élysées, you can enjoy a gorgeous rooftop view of the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and Sacre Coeur. In the heart of the 16th arrondissement, get transported to the Côte d’Azur with Italian and southern French gastronomy in the sunny yellow setting.

10. L’Oiseau Blanc et Le Rooftop

As one would expect, the rooftop dining at the Peninsula Hotel in Paris is wildly glamorous. On the outdoor terrace, guests enjoy refreshing cocktails alongside small seasonal dishes prepared by the chef right in front of their table. If that wasn’t enough, you can fly inside the glass dome of L’Oiseau Blanc for an unforgettable first-class culinary journey at the 2-star Michelin restaurant inspired by the French pioneers of aviation.
