L’Oiseau Blanc

16th Arrondissement
Rooftop Bar

The best thing about the Peninsula Paris hotel may be its rooftop bar and restaurant, L’Oiseau Blanc. The aviation-themed spot, named for the French plane that attempted the first non-stop flight from Paris to New York, but disappeared, is located on the sixth floor and offers views of almost every Parisian landmark. The cocktail menu is always changing but you can count on a well-edited list of spritzy sippers, like the Heartbeat made with Champagne, Chambord, lemon juice, and basil, best enjoyed on the terrace when the weather is fine.
