Le Perchoir Marais, a chalet on the roof of BHV

When it gets cold in Paris, Le Perchoir Marais turns into an urban cottage! Heaters, animal skins, blankets and cushions in warm colours give the terrace the atmosphere of a mountain chalet. In the spring, the Perchoir looks like a jungle covered in plants and the wooden terrace takes on a colonial appearance, with palm-tree motifs alongside Toiles de Jouy. Here, the hustle and bustle of Paris seems far away and there is an incredible view of the quays, the Hôtel de Ville, Tour Saint-Jacques, the Pompidou Centre and the Eiffel Tower.

230 Fifth, the biggest rooftop in Manhattan

The situation of 230 Fifth, on the twentieth floor of the building at 230 Fifth Avenue, is ideal. Customers come here for brunch at weekends or for a drink in the evening, after a day at work, and also to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. In winter, the barmen will lend you red woollen robes so that you can stay outside. Or you might be lucky enough to get a precious space inside one of the see-through igloos to enjoy the view in the warm.
