The festive season is one of the most magical and spellbinding periods for a stay in Paris. Cafe and restaurant terraces are transformed into cosy scenes, some even have enchanting decor (wooden cabins, Christmas tree, stars, etc.), to host your business meals, after-work events and private parties.
La Terrasse - Galeries Lafayette
The Terrasse - Galerie Lafayette rooftop, on the roof of the cupola department store Galeries Lafayette, offers a breathtaking view over Paris and its monuments and can host up to 400 people for a cocktail party. For winter, it is decorated on the theme of the cold North Pole region. A cosy atmosphere is created by warm throws and soft white cushions, and the Cube Bar has been transformed into an Ice Cube Bar. Two transparent domes, like two igloos transported to the heart of the capital, occupy the rooftop. Surprise your guests with an event in this original setting, available for full or partial private hire.
The Hôtel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe Paris 5*
This winter, the Hôtel du Collectionneur takes you to the North Pole! Snow, fir trees, furs, and a fairy-tale chalet all in white have taken up residence on the Andalusian patio of the hotel. The temporary chalet, in the gardens, houses a winter restaurant available for full private hire, for up to 60 people. On the menu are classic Christmas dishes with an innovative twist, like the salmon confit or the ‘Grand Nord’ yule log - an original creation with orange-flavoured crème brûlée biscuit and vanilla mousse. The chalet is open for lunch and tea from Monday to Friday, and for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday. It is also a dream setting for an after-work event, where you can unwind over drinks, out of the cold.
The Peninsula Paris 5*
Step through the doors of this prestigious Parisian palace and feel the magic of Christmas.
From 1 to 25 December, magnificent Baccarat Christmas trees with golden reflections provide a warm welcome. The Kléber Terrace at The Peninsula Paris (100 people) turns into a gourmet and traditional Christmas market, decorated with spectacular decorations, and special events take place throughout the month. Two chalets occupy the terrace: on one side the ‘savoury’ chalet with seafood, champagne, wines and vodka; on the other, the ‘sweet’ chalet, with childhood favourites including a selection of chocolates and other sweet treats. The terrace is open daily from 1pm to 8pm.
Pavillon Chesnaie du Roy
The Chesnaie du Roy, in the heart of the Bois de Vincennes, has been converted into a Pavilion following a complete renovation! The Pavilion offers 1,000 m² of modular rooms bathed in natural light for all types of events and a new 400 m² terrace with a panoramic view of the Parc Floral de Paris. The terrace welcomes your cocktail parties, lunches and dinners for up to 800 people. The Pavillon Chesnaie du Roy has onsite catering to meet all your needs and requirements, and its maîtres d’hôtel will provide you with the most attentive service worthy of great houses. A dream country setting for a winter event!
LE BHV MARAIS – Le Perchoir
The famous rooftop terrace (130 people) goes Scandinavian! In the heart of the trendy Marais district, the covered and heated terrace of the BHV Marais has been fitted out with fir tree, animal skins and furs. The decor, inspired by the cosiest Danish cabins, is an ideal setting for an after-work event in a convivial laid-back atmosphere. Open in the evening from Wednesday to Saturday, the rooftop offers a menu of Nordic snacks for the occasion, in addition to its usual delicious cocktails!
Le Chamarré Montmartre
A few steps from Sacré-Cœur, the upmarket restaurant Chamarré Montmartre serves excellent cuisine, away from the clamour of tourists. Starred chef Antoine Heerah creates dishes that are a delicious blend of French and Asian flavours. Full of charm, the shady modern terrace is a tranquil spot, tucked away at the top of a flight of steps on the hill. Heated and covered in winter, it can accommodate up to 60 people for a cocktail party and 35 for a sit-down dinner.
The Villa Montparnasse
The Villa Montparnasse, a haven of peace in the heart of the 14th arrondissement of Paris, is a 325 m² architect’s villa with a refined atmosphere. The 150 m² terrace is heated and, depending on the type of reception, is furnished with tables for a dinner in complete privacy or comfortable armchairs and sofas for a more festive event. This relaxing garden setting can host 80 people for a cocktail party. A catering package, available with the services of caterer Les Petits Cuistots, is 100% eco-responsible and provides home cooking.
With traditional Italian dishes, a cocktail menu created by a talented mixologist, and decor by celebrated designer Laura Gonzalez, the Auteuil Brasserie resembles a trendy and intimate little Tuscan palace, complete with a rooftop (250 m²)! In winter, the latter becomes a cosy cocoon with blankets and braziers (up to 400 people for a cocktail party). The terrace is suited to all kinds of events!
The 6, Mandel, a mansion house just a few metres from Trocadéro, across from the Eiffel Tower, is a chic and authentic venue with a passion for contemporary art. The venue has a total surface area of 100 m² spread out over 3 levels, as well as a secluded 130 m² garden. The latter area may be heated on request and can host events in winter for up to 60 people for a cocktail reception and 20 people for a sit-down lunch or dinner.
Shangri-La Hôtel Paris 5*
This palace, close to Trocadéro, welcomes your upscale outdoor events on the impressive terrace of the Shangri-La suite. On the 7th and last floor of the hotel, the suite provides a complete private setting for your prestige events. The 220 m² elegantly-decorated space includes a 100 m² modern terrace in teak, heated for the season. Impress your guests with this unique environment, offering them an incomparable view of the most emblematic monuments in Paris, with the Eiffel Tower as the guest of honour!
