Want to have a drink on a terrace? Looking for freshness and a summer ambiance? The patio of your Hotel Les Deux Girafes reopens on August 28th. We’re all looking forward eagerly to that time, but until then here are the green terraces in Paris that our team warmly recommends... Choose one or try them all!


A wealth of green terraces...

There are a thousand ways to enjoy nature’s verdant charms in Paris. No doubt you’ve already visited the main parks, gardens and squares... so now it’s time to discover the capital’s best green terraces. Let's start with a little treat just a 1-minute walk from your Hotel Les Deux Girafes; the Rue Ternaux. This street, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the district, has several small bars and restaurants such as La Belle Mer, Paris Féni, Chambelland and Ave Maria, whose terraces overlook the pleasant Place Ternaux. An authentically Parisian ambiance that’s totally easy-going. A little further away, near the renowned Place des Vosges, you’ll experience a total change of atmosphere as you succumb to a Provencal vibe, the scent of pastis and the soft shade of olive trees. Welcome to Janou, the most Provençal of Parisian terraces!


...for a cosmopolitan and lively feel

Continue your terrace tour by stopping by the Perchoir Ménilmontant or the famous Mama Shelter. The rooftop terrace of the latter welcomes visitors from all over the world as warmly as it does the locals from around the corner. Whether comfortably seated on the scattered cushions or enjoying a frenzied game of table tennis, you’ll savour the sweetness of Parisian summer evenings. Finally, for a unique experience, try the Jardin Suspendu, 2020 version. This gigantic pop-up terrace is taking over part of the Parc Floral de Vincennes this year. Concerts, happenings, playgrounds, activities and entertainment; there’s always something going on... in the great outdoors!

Paris is bursting with great ways to take advantage of summer’s warmth! While you wait to spend delightful moments on the patio of your Hotel Les Deux Girafes, why not check out the green terraces that have charmed us?
