For a fabulous view over the city, take the lift to the 7th and final floor of the Terrass Hotel, set in a magnificent art deco building topped by a panoramic terrace. It’s on top of Montmartre, a stone’s throw from the very touristy Rue Lepic – and between August and September, it’s a great place to enjoy the sunshine with a glass in hand, waited on by penguin-suited staff. The ambiance is a little bling, the drinks a little over-priced, the music a little kitsch, but you have to forgive it for the view over Paris: from the Eiffel Tower to the Montmartre cemetery below, taken in while relaxing on banks of cushions.
Though pricy at around €14 a throw, the cocktails are excellent; we like the seasonal mojitos (virgin, Italian, strawberry, raspberry or Royal with champagne). There’s also a wide selection of whisky and a few champagnes (if you want to pay €25 for a glass of Dom Perignon), and finger food (tapas and bruschettas from €17). Get there early if you want to have an evening drink, as reservations are only taken for guests of the hotel, and it’s rammed from around 6pm. Better to come in the afternoon, if you can, to enjoy the place in peace.
