Le Perchoir Marais
© ZT/Time Out Paris

Open only from June to October, this rooftop bar in the Marais offers exceptional views over Paris (though the drinks are nothing special).

When the sun’s out, this classy rooftop bar feels like a fancy Greek seaside resort, with its white parquet floor, blue tables, striped cushions, live DJ, decorated trees and panoramic backdrop with views of the Hôtel de Ville and the Eiffel tower. The Perchoir Marais has built up a reputation for long queues since opening back in 2014, but if you come down late (say, after 9pm) you’ll probably avoid the worst of the crowds. The clientele include the kind of wealthy folk who shop in the nearby BHV department store, plus an excessive number of bouncers and staff reining them all in. It’s not unpleasant company, but it’s not exactly rock ‘n’ roll.

Drinks are a mixed bag, with cocktails like the ‘Green Giant’ (absinthe, cucumber, green chartreuse, lime) comfortably mediocre, but they’re decently priced at around €12 each. Still, it’s safer to opt for a beer (a Pietra costs just €7). Even if the drinks aren’t very original, stunning views and friendly waiters mean this an impressive spot to bring a friend, lover or visitor to the city.

If you're after a fab view of Paris then this is the place to come. There's always a queue outside (it can apparently be up to an hour wait) but it's definitely worth it. I was surprised that it wasn't more expensive than bars without views (!) - cocktails start from  €10, which doesn't seem so bad when you're sipping it looking down onto the Hotel de Ville or across the the Eiffel Tower.

I actually went here in April when the bar was decorated like a Swiss mountain chalet complete with fur covered benches! I'm sure its even better in the summer! The views from the bar are great, but you need to get here early if you don't want to have to line up outside. Drinks are pricey but worth it to admire the view of the city for a little while. Definitely somewhere to drop by early in the evening, but only for a drink or two. Then I'd head of the more reasonably priced restaurants/bars in the surrounding area.
