Not many Parisian terraces (even none!) can compete with the breathtaking show that La Défense Grande Arche Rooftop offers. Open in 2017 after 7 years of renovation works, La Défense Grande Arche Rooftop features a 360° panoramic view over La Défense neighborhood and the streets of Paris. An incredible show at your own feet.
Entirely thought up by the Valode & Pistre architectes agency, this new 11,000-square-meter area offers a unique promenade deck.
To get to the terrace, perched at the 35th floor, you use one of the four renovated panoramic elevators that take you at 110 meters high and then to the hanging panoramic viewpoint and finally to the wonderful promenade deck built in the same perspective as Paris Axe Historique.
This rooftop also houses an 1,200-square-meter exhibition area dedicated to exhibitions, retrospectives, meetings with the public and the press.
Finally, this brand-new rooftop provides two culinary offers including a 130-square-meter and 50-covers bistronomic restaurant. Its name? Les Jardins de Joséphine. This restaurant is ran by Chef Jean-Christian Dumonet and offers a healthy, fresh, homemade and seasonal cuisine (about €50). The second offer includes a top-of-the-range fast food, the Lina’s, and is perfect for people on a rush (about €12).
As a memo, the rooftop of the Grande Arche also offers numerous events throughout the year: open-air movie screenings, yoga at sunrise or fashion shows…
