Fancy a killer view, but can’t be f*cked to deal with the hordes of tourists at the Eiffel Tower? Head out to the 11th where this unmarked 7th story roof terrace has 360-degree views of Paris and drinks to boot. With tent style bars, planter boxes, pallet benches and fire pits in massive oil drums, this is the cool kids response to a Soho House type establishment, minus all the pretentious bullsh*t.
Chat up one of the smiling bartenders and watch as they nail some serious drinks. BarChick went for a classic Aperol Spritz topped up with Champagne, found a spot in the sun and soaked up that insane view. This is the spot to catch the sunset if you’re lucky. Happen to pop round on a cooler night? No worries, they’ve got you covered with heat lamps, blankets and coloured fairy lights.
This place gets rammed and takes no bookings. If you don’t want to risk it, book at the factory-chic restaurant on the 6th floor and when you’re done stuffing your face, pop upstairs when no one is looking.
