Bar with a view: La Vue, Paris

Sip cocktails among the stars at La Vue, the coolest new nightspot in Paris at the Concorde La Fayette Hotel

If you’re celebrating your newly formed twosome in the city of love, whisk your other half off for a few hours of the Parisian highlife at the hottest new bar in town, La Vue


Boasting unrivalled panoramic views over Paris, La Vue is situated on the 34th floor of the Concorde La Fayette Hotel in the heart of the city. Decked out in vibrant hues of passionate pinks and purples, the interior is chic and modern with buttery smooth leather seating and sleek chrome detailing. Romance-ready lighting is provided by an amazing 11,000 glass rod chandelier that will ripple through a rainbow of colours during your stay.

But the undeniable pièce de résistance is the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that let you gaze uninterrupted over the Parisian skyline. The Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe rise majestically over the rooftops and you’ll have fun spotting all the special places you and your man have visited together.

Music comes courtesy of Tête d’Affiche, an exclusively cool gang of guys and girls who are undeniably the hottest DJ talent in France. And as you take in the views, treat yourself to a cool cocktail created by top mixologist Stephen Martin and a delicious snack from the internationally-eclectic menu.
