The lines spiral on and on. The people grumble. Those who decide if you can pass or not decide the mood you have the rest of the day with your endeavors. No, we are not talking about a day spent trying to get paperwork in order with the French administration. We are talking about getting into Le Perchoir, a rooftop bar situated on top of the BHV Marais, offering stunning views of the city and stunningly hip people. Since it is so popular, it is incredibly crowded and can lead to long lines of standing around. But chin up – the group behind this location has opened up a few others in the city, and if you make sure to check their hours in advance, your chances of chilling on a Parisian rooftop and having a good time are greatly increased (don’t let the lines scare you, though maybe they should).
