This is the Parisian rooftop bar to beat all rooftop bars. Seriously. And I'll be honest, I am not one for hotel bars. But the rooftop bar of the Hotel Raphael, just a stone's throw from the Arc de Triomphe, is one of those gems you wish were open all year long. Alas, it's only open during the summer months. Here the seating is arranged in discreet manner so you get both the sense of a rooftop lounge with panoramic views of the Sacre-Cur, Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, while maintaining that sense of a private rendez-vous. For this season, I've heard murmurings that Bbq is the theme so any sunny afternoon or early evening that you stop by, you may just be able to get some hot skewers of steak, chicken and shrimp to go with your glasses of champagne and fresh strawberry cocktails.

- Bars: "Make reservations for a table or stop by early in the evening as this becomes a very popular spot on a warm summer evening. Unfortunately, for the colder months you'll have to head to the English Bar downstairs as this rooftop is not open in winter."
- Best for Bars Because: The panoramic views and private seating arrangements of this Parisian rooftop bar make it a jewel.
