For one of the best outlooks in Paris, head up to the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette department store. Eight floors up, this 1 500m2 terrace offers a really impressive 360° view over Paris, with the Opera House in close range and the Eiffel Tower as the stately backdrop.
But not only about views, the terrace also holds a colorful and creative rooftop bar and restaurant called Créatures Paris. Opening in 2019, they replaced Le Cube Bar, which was housed on the rooftop previously.
Given the location, Créatures is of course the perfect spot for a break in a day filled with shopping, even though it works just as well for a day- or night time visit without any purchases. Open-air, lush and retro-beautiful in setting, the terrace comes with everything from regular dining tables to comfy lounge sofas and bar seats.
Run by Chef Julien Sebbag, the Créatures rooftop restaurant offers a seasonal and 100% vegetarian menu, packed with colorful salads and other creative sensations, combining Mediterranean flavours with Tel-Aviv influences. The aim? To make fruits and vegetables 'sexy and exciting'.
The food is served daily as lunch and dinner, and in between and after you can also enjoy some refreshing drinks from the cocktail bar. Here you find signature creations focusing on herbs and plants, but also a nice selection of wine, champagne and juices.
Open from mid-June to mid-October, Créatures rooftop mixes a relaxing Mediterranean vibe with a large hint of Parisian trendiness. This urban rooftop escape has quickly become highly popular, and while reservations are possible for lunch, dinner and drinks work on a first-come, first served basis. So be in good time to catch one of the prime spots.Last updated: August 1, 2020
