It is not too late for the rooftops of Paris
At the top of Madame Rêve, the Hotel Rochechouart, or Brach Paris, these Parisian rooftops are the perfect place to sip a drink or have dinner this Fall.
The new panoramic terrace in the Bourse district
Neighboring the Bourse de Commerce and located at the top of La Poste du Louvre, Madame Rêve has been waking up the Parisian hotel scene since its opening. “It’s a city within the city”, confided to us then Laurent Taïeb who worked on the project for almost nine years. On the third floor, the Parisian roofs seem to float under the bay windows of the La Plume restaurant where chef Benjamin Six revisits Japanese dishes – you can now taste makis with salmon, spicy tuna and miso on the rooftop.

At the Top of the Kimpton St Honoré Hotel
The roof terrace, Sequoia, on the 10th floor of the Kimpton St Honoré hotel, offers a breathtaking view of the city and its emblematic monuments from the Sacré Cœur to the dome of the Opéra Garnier, via the Eiffel Tower. Immaculate benches and Art Deco lanterns make up an XXL tableau (300 m2) of 80 seats where you can share plates of well thought-out tapas and freshly shaken cocktails. Lower down, the Montecito table pays homage to Californian cuisine with the dishes of chef Nicolas Pastot (revisited tacos, crab croquettes) in a setting by decorators Humbert & Poyet.

The Hotel Rochechouart and its rooftop overlooking Montmartre
At the foot of Montmartre, the address designed by the architect duo Festen finally has its perched terrace facing the Sacré-Coeur. Decorated with large green Anduze pottery, wrought iron banquettes and retro-looking striped blinds, the Parisian rooftop offers a Mediterranean menu of grilled meats and fish, and house cocktails such as the Marguerite (Gin Citadelle, rosemary, honey, lavender, orange blossom and verjuice).
A rooftop by Philippe Starck in Paris
At the top of Brach, the former post office transformed into a five-star hotel by Philippe Starck, the vegetable garden becomes a summer rooftop where you can sip cocktails with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Between the Norwegian bath that can be privatized, the herb garden and the chicken coop, a bar in raw wood sets the scene, cocktails from the bartender Jérémy Bacquet and plates of Iberian Bellotta-Bellotta ham.
