Summer on the terrace in Paris

Categories : Visit Paris, published on : 7/1/23

As soon as the good weather arrives, terraces and rooftops flourish throughout Paris. There is not much that is more pleasant than spending time outdoors, enjoying the mild summer evenings and a very pleasant view of the street or the rooftops. Located between Bastille and Marais, the Hotel Marais Bastille is at the crossroads of two districts renowned for their entertainment, their cafes and their restaurants. During your stay, discover the best addresses for terraces and rooftops, a few steps from the hotel…


Le Perchoir Ménilmontant

Leaving the Bastille district you can reach, in about fifteen minutes on foot, the very trendy Ménilmontant district. One particular address has stood out above all others there for several years: Le Perchoir. Its addresses in Paris have led to the Perchoir chain of bar/restaurants developing its trademark style and quality. The brand is all about a decor that is both tasteful and relaxed, a warm and trendy ambiance, gourmet dishes and a fine selection of cocktails. At Le Perchoir Ménilmontant, make yourself comfortable on a banquette on the terrace and admire the view of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica. Then, relax and peruse the appealing menu designed by chef Alice Arnoux!


Les Bariolés de Maud

Halfway between Bastille and Nation, in a district where galleries, artists' and artisan’s ateliers, and cafés flourish, Les Bariolés de Maud has quickly found its place. On its pretty terrace overlooking a lively street, you can treat yourself at any time to a brunch, a snack on the go or a tapas evening. On the menu you’ll find the famous colourful dishes that gave their name to the concept. Somewhere between a pancake and a samosa, the bariolé comprises a pâte made from a unique recipe and is stuffed with a mixture of herbs, spices, and the chef's secret ingredients. Always composed of fresh and seasonal ingredients, the bariolés make up a healthy and gourmet meal to accompany a glass of wine or a cocktail.



With its lively and colourful terrace, there is no risk of missing the restaurant L’Artiste! The brightly hued metal chairs and the prominence of wood are reminiscent of bucolic guinguettes, while the round tables are a must in Parisian bistros. There, at any time, you can taste the great classics of brasserie cuisine, such as onion soup, egg casserole, croque-monsieur, steak with pepper sauce and hanger steak. To accompany these delights, the wine is served by the glass with nice recommendations that change every month. What’s more, L’Artiste also offers brunches on Saturday and Sunday mornings.


During your stay at the Hotel Marais Bastille, why not take advantage of your presence in this lively neighbourhood and discover some of the excellent cafes and restaurants it boasts. In summer, the terraces and rooftops become absolutely essential. Each has its own character and ambiance. Make your choice in accordance with your preferences but remember to book!
