THE PARISIAN TERRACE BARS THAT WE LOVE
Having a drink on a terrace bar is a delightful experience in both summer and winter (but more so in summer), and naturally a La Maison de la Maille throw is your best companion for lunches, aperitifs, dinners, and any other evening events held in the open air. To help you select the perfect Parisian rendezvous, here are our seven favorite terrace bars and restaurants.
THE RITZ – AN INSTITUTION
Needing no introduction, the Ritz is a legendary hotel on Place Vendôme. Recently revamped, its inner courtyard terrace offers its hotel guests – and others – an enchanting sanctuary from hectic city life. La Maison de la Maille’s very own FX highly recommends the eggs Benedict, but of course the choice is entirely yours.
LE BOUCLIER DE BACCHUS – INTIMACY
A small terrace but great wines. This place is a must if you like the relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere of Parisian restaurants. Both a wine merchant and a bistro, enjoy the best of both worlds and discover many treasures of the world of wine. This is perfect place to sample some lovely vintages courtesy of the owner Philippe’s wealth of knowledge and kindly advice.
LE CRILLON – MODERNITY
This wonderful Parisian hotel has aced the huge challenge of tastefully marrying luxury with modernity. Facing Place de la Concorde, enjoy a cocktail or sip a refreshing tea under the therapeutic rays of the sun or under your Alpaca throw. It’s your choice. Not at all pompous, but devilishly elegant, le Crillon one of La Maison de la Maille's faithful followers and our throws on sale in the hotel store.
LE TERRASS’ HÔTEL – THE HEIGHT OF COOL
If you’re looking for a rooftop terrace with a view of the Eiffel Tower, look no further than Le Terrass’’ Hôtel. Located in the 18th arrondissement, just a few steps from the Sacré-Coeur, this terrace is both chic and cool. On top of that, the food is great!
LE MEURICE – THE VIEW FROM THE TOP
Luxury in its purest form. And we’re not just saying that because their most beautiful suites are adorned with La Maison de la Maille throws. With breathtaking views over Paris, lounge-style furnishings, extensive greenery and large parasols, the rooftop at Le Meurice is easily one of the most sublime terraces in Paris.
LE PERCHOIR MÉNILMONTANT
If you want a drink in a setting that magically transports you to a vacation destination and you have a few hours to wait in line, go no further than Ménilmontant and seek out Le Perchoir bar and its roof terrace. With its beige cotton benches, an abundance of vegetation, wooden structures and hanging rattan decorations, it’s a little bit of Bali in the heart of Paris.
LE GRAND POWERS – L’INSTAGRAMMABLE
And how can we overlook the opening of the new Le Grand Powers, the most Instagrammable hotel in the capital? It has immediately become the place to be seen for every Parisian influencer (and the influenced too). Le Grand Powers has many strings to its bow, including the adorable first floor terrace of its Café 52 bar and restaurant. Perfect for a drink on hot summer evenings (as well as cool evenings with your La Maison de la Maille throw).

Since its fiber is widely used in the manufacture of our La Maison de la Maille products, it seemed essential to us to highlight the 10 most important (and no doubt surprising) traits of its personality.
