On top of the BHV Marais, just right in front of Paris City Hall, you will find a rooftop bar with an amazing view. With views of the Eiffel Tower and the Pantheon, you can truly enjoy the summer nights of Paris here.
While looking down on the streets of Paris, you can enjoy drinks among local Parisians and trendy music.
The best spot of Le Perchoir Marais are the terrace seats on the right side. From this spot, you can view city hall, the Eiffel tower, and the Saint Jacques tower. During the long summer days, this rooftop is a prime spot to watch the sun set behind the city skyline.
There is always a line to get in, and you order and pay at the counter. You have various menu choices including beers, wines, non-alcohol cocktails, sodas, and plates. If you are accompanied by someone, it is better if one person gets seats while the other one orders. It's not easy to get good seats as it is a very popular spot.

LYNCHBURG (DRINK ON THE RIGHT SIDE)
Well mixed cocktail with bourbon jim beam, triple sec, lemons, orange beast, lemonade, and peppers. This fresh cocktail goes well with cheese and ham.
The beer, on the very left side, is perfect for summer. At Le Perchoir Marais, beers are around 7-8 euros.
When it finally gets dark, you can see the magnificent eiffel tower lighting up the whole city. During the summer, even at 22:00, it is not fully dark and the lights are off on the buildings, making the Eiffel tower even more shiny.
Trendy music from the DJ booth adds to the sentimental atmosphere.
Summer is not the only time that you can enjoy this incredible terrace. Throughout every season, they create different atmospheres, making it even more romantic and special.
You cannot go up to Le Perchoir through BHV department store. You must follow the address above to find the elevator to go up to Le Perchoir. As this rooftop bar is very popular among Parisians, we recommend to arrive before the opening to ensure an enjoyable evening.
