Lounge Bar View has a sky-scraping location on the 7th floor of the Novotel Vaugirard, located on the street of the same name (the longest in Paris at 4.3km, fact fans). This Left Bank perch offers a panoramic view over Paris and the Eiffel Tower from the terrace (open June-end September); there are no plants or decorative flourishes here, but a collection of tables across the span of the building where you're almost guaranteed to get a place in the sun at apéro time. The drinks list includes some heavy-hitting vintages (wine and champagne), and cocktails. The clientele is mostly Parisians in suits, looking for a good place for an after work drink in a comparatively quiet neighbourhood. This one isn’t hip, but the terrace is guaranteed calm, the service is attentive, and the view superb. The prices are high without being excessive (from €5 for a small glass of wine) and there’s a selection of gourmet snacks.
