Le Perchoir was one of the city’s first rooftop bars and remains a hip spot from which to watch the sun set over those slate-grey rooftops, cocktail in hand. To reach the 400-square-metre terrace, look for the velvet rope on the street and take the lift (or the spiral staircase) to level seven. The cabana-like space has cushion-strewn nooks tucked among potted olive trees, grape vines and jasmine (with braziers in winter) and a 'snack cabin' from which to order share plates of seasonal antipasti. It’s open until late, but take note: on balmy evenings, it gets full to heaving, often with a queue. Arrive early to get the best vantage point for gazing across to Sacré-Coeur’s Romano-Byzantine domes.
