Summer is here, which means that it's the perfect moment to once again open our address book and share some rare gems with you: Terraces in the sun, hidden from noisy suburbs, and sometimes unknown even to Parisians. Let's go!
It's a haven of peace, even on Sundays, when the museum has the most crowds. Fountains, a lake, mosaics, neoclassical columns, all you need for a XIXth century ambiance. You'll have to wait until May 16, 2019 to visit, as beautification projects started in March 16.
Avenue Winston Churchill – Paris 75008
Métro Champs-Élysées ClémenceauTuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm
The place is worthy of an embassy or ministry despite a quality of service that is not to everyone's liking. There is a bar and a restaurant, but only the restaurant offers access to the terrace. Play it smart by ordering an entry to share and a good bottle of wine to enjoy in a calm environment.
217, Boulevard Saint Germain, 75007 Paris
Monday to Friday, lunchtime and evening.
It is a quiet village in the middle of a busy Paris. The square is surrounded by 4 establishments offering a terrace where the experienced travelers know to order a drink rather than a bite to eat.
Place du marché Sainte Catherine, 75004 Paris
Métro Saint Paul
As one of the most romantic and gastronomic places in Paris, the terraces of this one Michelin star restaurant offer an unforgettable experience with impeccable service.
A 10-minute walk from the hotel.

This affordable hotel offers tables and parasols spread over 1,500 square meters for large groups and families. It's an address to consider when finding a place to sit and drink outside gets difficult.
74, rue Amelot, 75011 Paris
Métro Saint-Sébastien - Froissart
Monday to Friday, from 4 pm to 11:30 pm
We recently mentioned this address, the Museum of Decorative Arts's restaurant does not practice the prices that could be expected based on its surroundings. And if the sun gets too hot, you can take refuge inside where a space of exquisite decoration awaits you.
A 10-minute walk from the hotel.

Monday to Wednesday, from 12 pm to 11 pm and Thursday to Friday, from 12 pm to 11:30 pm
It's simple, country-style restaurant in the park of the Buttes Chaumont in the Pavillon Puebla. The address has become very fashionable since its change of management and is quickly stormed on the weekends in the summer.
Parc des Buttes Chaumont, 1, rue Botazris, 75019 Paris
Métro Place des Fêtes
Wednesday to Sunday, from 12 pm to 8 pm
We imagined meeting Georges Sand, Frederic Chopin, or Sarah Bernhardt as the scent of this crystallized place inspires the romanticism of 19th century Paris. This Montmartrois Hotel, Bar, & Restaurant has a sometimes-questionable quality of service, but it will always off the type of calm able to slow down your internal processor. Cautious travelers prefer buying a drink over eating. No booking required. It is best to arrive early if you dine in the evening.
23, avenue Junot, Pavillon D - 75018 Paris
Métro Lamarck - Caulaincourt
Monday to Saturday, from 6 pm to 2 am and Sunday, from 6 pm to 12 am
It's new and trendy: Since April of this year, a 400m2 terrace awaits you on the 2nd floor of this hotel designated by Philippe Stark where the rules are usually avoided in order to entertain the bohos. Bar and snacking. Food lovers will have to stop at the pastry shop on the ground floor where an impressive selection is offered with a service that needs a bit of tweaking but is promising.
Métro Franklin D. Roosevelt
1-7 rue Jean Richepin, 75016 Paris
Every day starting from 8 am. Closing time to be confirmed.
A place also located in Montmartre, almost anachronistic, that this time really was visited by Georges Sand and Frederic Chopin. Comfort and tranquility guaranteed in the small garden of the museum where we are offered drinks, sweet and savory pies, salads, and cold and hot drinks at reasonable prices.
16, rue Chaptal - 75009 ParisTuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm.
