The greatest casual place to chill out in Paris?

Paris is a city where there’s a lot to do and a lot to see. Sight-seeing, shopping, gastronomy, yes. But Paris also requires taking some time. Time to take it in, to enjoy it, to admire it and to chill out! Now, here is the best place to do exactly that!

The Cube Bar: the best way to cool off and have a summer chill


Cube Bar aux Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the steaming city and head to the rooftop bar of Galeries Lafayette Haussmann’s department store. Just getting there is an experience in itself, going through the Galeries Lafayette’s beautiful architecture as well as the colorful coupole. On the 7th floor awaits you 1 500m² of terrace, a green wall and above all, a 360° view over Paris and its iconic monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, the Opéra Garnier and the Sacré Coeur.

The Cube Bar will welcome you in its modern and sleek decor for a cold beer or a cocktail coupled with some sun bathing if you’re up for it. And if the day is just too hot, extend your stay and decide for a gourmet break or a Mediterranean lunch at La Paillote. Options are open.

Paris is literally at your feet and you can grasp the feel of it.

The Cube Bar is open all day long until 8pm for a relaxing moment (last admittance at 7:20pm).

The Ice Cube Bar: escaping the winter chill by nestling comfortably in our cozy bar


Who said you had to give up on Paris’ best outlooks, just because the temperature drops? Cozy and unobstructed views are compatible at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann’s rooftop bar as The Cube Bar transforms into the Ice Cube Bar! This will make a difference. Hot chocolate, glass of wine, champagne or cocktails are to be enjoyed under two remarkable igloo-like transparent domes that are built up to provide a warm comfortable cocoon to escape the winter chill and still get the view. The terrace is heated and the glass domes enable to fully appreciate the sunset over the Parisian’s roofs. Warm throws are also available in case you still want to challenge the cold to have a closer look at some of the monuments.

Along with your drink you can go for some “delicatessen & cheese boards”, sweet or savory, or winter specialties such as oysters, foie gras and local French products. Savoring some French wine and French cuisine with the Eiffel Tower as a proud and elegant backdrop, how much better can it be?
