Rooftop bars are the holy grail in any city. But a 4,000 square foot rooftop with Sacre Coeur views and zero pretension? No amount of unmarked door-age was going to keep this urban Eden a secret. Whisked up to the sixth floor from the courtyard below, it’s hard not to lose your cool when the doors swoosh open to reveal nothing but sky above and rooftops below. The building below is made up entirely of art studios, as well as Le Perchoir’s own restaurant, and the subsequent buzz of creative conversation here is infectious, with groups occupying cushion-strewn benches, sharing bottles of wine, and generally looking like an advert for life success. At €8 for a beer it’s best to arrive with the phrase “splashing out” in mind, but in all honesty, it’s worth every penny. Doors open at 4pm and queues can form early, so be canny and arrive before 7pm for a seat.
