Café Marly (Maison Thierry Costes - DR)
Maison Thierry Costes - DRCafé Marly

In the arcaded terrace overlooking the Louvre’s glass pyramid, this classy, Napoleon III-style hangout (reached through the passage Richelieu, the entrance for advance Louvre ticket holders) is in an unrivalled location. One would expect nothing else from the ubiquitous Costes brothers – it’s just a shame about the beer prices. It’s €6 for a Heineken, so you might as well splash out €12 on a chocolate martini, or perhaps a Shark (vodka, lemonade and grenadine). Most wines are under €10 a glass, and everything is impeccably served by razor-sharp staff. Brasserie fare and sandwiches are on offer too.

While Café Marly is a total tourist hot-spot, the view of the Louvre from its long sheltered patio is hard to beat! Watching the waiters/waitresses, that look like they belong on a Chanel runway show, serve the glitzy clientele can also be amusing. Food is pretty expensive and nothing special, so I usually only ever come here for a pricey coffee or soft drink in the summer to enjoy the outdoor seating.
