3. Le Café Marly

Best View of the Lou­vre

LuxeGetaways - - Top 5 -

Café Marly’s ter­race, un­der the arch­ways that flank the Napoleon Court­yard of the Lou­vre, has in­spi­ra­tional views of Chi­nese Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect I.M. Pei’s iconic glass and metal pyra­mid en­trance to the world’s most fa­mous mu­seum (Musée du Lou­vre). I find it to be a won­der­ful place to en­joy the flow­ers in the square that of­fer a col­or­ful land­scape while sa­vor­ing the fea­tures of the day. A per­sonal fa­vorite com­bi­na­tion is a re­fresh­ing glass of Rosé Cham­pagne, paired with a rich lob­ster salad.

There are few places in the world that are more idyl­lic than a Parisian café for lo­cals and tourists alike to en­joy fresh air dur­ing the quin­tes­sen­tial Paris af­ter­noons and even­ings. Yes, the heat can be in­tense at times dur­ing the sum­mers, but the charm of Paris tops the heat any­time. I have spent a lifetime get­ting to know this city from a lo­cal’s per­spec­tive, and I am ex­cited to share my fa­vorite café sug­ges­tions for your next visit to this mag­i­cal city. –Priscilla Pilon Web­site: www.cafe-marly.comHours: Ev­ery­day 8:00am to 2:00amLo­ca­tion: 93 rue, Rivoli – 75001 Paris (fac­ing the Pyra­mid, you can ac­cess from rue de Rivoli by the Pas­sage Riche­lieu)Pho­tog­ra­phy Cour­tesy Café MarlyPho­tog­ra­phy Cour­tesy Mai­son Blanche Web­site: www.mai­son-blanche.frHours: Lunch Mon-Fri 12:00pm - 2:00pm | Dinner Daily 8:00pm - 11:00pm Lo­ca­tion: 15 av­enue, Mon­taigne – 75008 Paris Web­site: www.lesho­tels­baverez.comHours: Bar Daily 4:00pm - 11:00pm | Lunch Mon-Fri 12:30pm - 2:00pm | Dinner 7:30pm - 10:00pm (Sched­ule is sea­sonal, so in­quire di­rectly)Lo­ca­tion: 17 av­enue, Kle­ber – 75016 Paris
