☆ Enjoy the Sun – Terraces in Paris ☆
Finally Summer arrived.. and with it, the Sun..
Here a list with my favorites Terraces in Paris..
The Café Marly, located under the arcades of the Louvre facing the Pyramid, is one of the most enchanting spots in Paris, whether you sit in one of the elegant Napoleon III-style rooms or whether you choose the fabulous terrace. It overlooks the Carrousel garden between the museum and Place Concorde. This is a very chic establishment, frequented by a very classy clientele.93, Rue de Rivoli, 75001

Les Deux Magots
From Arthur Rimbaud to Jean Paul Sartre… from André Breton to Antonin Artaud to Pablo Picasso… they’re all a part of Paris rich heritage and they were all, at one time, customers at Les Deux Magots. A literary café since 1875, it owes its name to the Chinese silk goods store located previously at that address (“magot” means literally “Chinese or Chinese-style statue of large proportions”—there are two such statues inside the café). Although the terrace is wonderful, it’s often crowded, even in winter. Better take that hot chocalate inside; there’s an extra room upstairs perfect for looking at passerby.

The latest venture from the people who brought you the pub of the same name in the Rue St-Andre-des-Arts, Corcoran’s on the Boulevard de Clichy (Pigalle district) has succeeded in creating a fairly authentic atmosphere thanks to a an old-fashioned bar, plenty of old Irish ads on the walls, and above all a legitimate personnel and clientele of expatriates. Irish, French, Americans and Brits mingle here at happy hour or during big rugby and soccer matches on the big screen; the place also attracts quite a few tourists from nearby Pigalle and Montmartre.110 Boulevard de Clichy, Paris 75018 Tel : 01 42 23 00 30
In the heart of the Marais for over a decade, Stolly’s Irish pub is an infectiously good-humoured place to be. This Irish pub, found on a small side street in the heart of the Marais, has typically English Happy Hour, that is, from 4:30 all the way to 8 pm. The atmosphere is similarly Anglo, providing a friendly meeting point for the Irish and the English. With a bit of luck, you may just bump into Joe, a regular customer who comes by from time to time with a range of biscuits. This, according to the young manager, means he’s in a good mood. A very pleasant place indeed for sipping on a Guinness, especially in summertime on the terrace at night.

In a tastefully current bistro interior that mixes design with Mediterranean accents, this bar-restaurant facing Canal Saint-Martin has become quite popular. Its traditional cuisine has some exotic touches. At Chez Prune there are four dishes of the day: a fish dish, a meat dish, a salad, or a vegetarian plate. Evenings, it’s ideal to come for a glass of wine, a before-dinner drink, and accompany it with a platter of cold meats or a salad.36, Rue Beaurepaire – Quai Valmy, 75010

Bistrot des Dames
Take an original and pleasant setting, throw in an air of conviviality, add in a certain avant-garde, “je ne sais quoi” and a pinch of welcome discretion. Accompanying all this is the old ambiance of Paris in the Sixties and what you have is a delicious bistro. In summer, you can be served in the garden, and in winter, you can even dine out on the veranda (it’s heated).18, Rue des Dames, 75017
