Starting from June 1, 2017, you will discover the brand-new Grande Arche de La Défense rooftop. A brilliant rooftop featuring a breathtaking panoramic view and an exhibition area dedicated to photojournalism as well as a “bistronomic” restaurant.

Announced to be open in early April first, the Grande Arche de La Défense rooftop opening has finally be postponed to June 1, 2017. We must say that the work has been impressive… Closed since 2010, the rooftop is soon to be open again to numerous visitors who are eager to discover the 360° panoramic view!

No need to say that this rooftop is going to be exceptional! Entirely thought up by the Valode & Pistre architectes agency, this new 11,000-square-meter area will firstly offer a unique promenade deck.

To get to the terrace, perched at the 35th floor, you will use one of the four renovated panoramic elevators that will 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 will also house an 1,200-square-meter exhibition area dedicated to photojournalism. Perpignan International Festival of Photojournalism and Visa pour l’Image founder Jean-François Leroy will be entrusted with artistic direction. Exhibitions, retrospectives, encounters with the public and the media will be offered… among the coming exhibitions: Stéphanie Sinclair’s to be discovered from June 1 to October 1 and then, Eugene Richards’ scheduled on October 2017.

Finally, this brand-new rooftop will provide two culinary offers including a 130-square-meter and 50-covers bistronomic restaurant. Its name? Les Jardins de Joséphine. This restaurant will be run by Chef Jean-Christian Dumonet and will offer a healthy, fresh, homemade and seasonal cuisine (about €50). The second offer includes a top-of-the-range fast food, the Lina’s, and will be perfect for people on a rush (about €12).
