Bastille Day Dates

Where do you celebrate France's national holiday in its stunning capital? Here are our top 7 hotels and restaurants to take in the firework festivities in style.

1. For the ultimate splurge Le Meurice offers quite the suite to serve you Paris on one gorgeous platter. Its Belle Etoile Penthouse Suite boasts a sprawling terrace gifting you with a 360º view of the capital, letting you peek into every corner of it while striking you with its beautiful attractions including the Eiffel Tower standing at arm's reach.


2. Nestled in a quiet street in the 16th arrondissement of the city is the Brach hotel where from the Suzanne suite you can watch the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower, lighting up the backdrop to your 14th of July party. The suite, designed by French interior designer Philippe Starck, features private access to the rooftop garden, and boasts a hot tub on its terrace.


3. A front row seat to the fireworks and sharing plates come courtesy of Forest, the new restaurant at the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris. Middle Eastern-inspired dishes created by chef Julien Sebbag include halloumi salad, labneh and tuna tartare.


4. Atop the 11th arrondissement Le Perchoir rooftop bar will get you celebrating France's national holiday with a spectacular view of its capital city and great cocktails. Try the Blu Twist, made with the house gin, or the Mezcal Sour, and enjoy with the bar's tapas-style menu.


5. The Plaza Athénée Hotel is one of the city's most iconic hotels and its recently renovated Terrace Duplex Suite is a bijoux. Designed by Bruno Moinard and Claire Bétaille, the suite is dressed in Art Deco style and boasts a terrace with a breathtaking view from where you can host your very own cocktail party.


6. Sushi and a view looking onto the most famous avenue in the world is Mun's gift to us. On the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, the rooftop restaurant serves sashimi, tataki and an unobstructed view of the Arc de Triomphe.


7. Spend the day after the morning parade and before the colourful firework display lounging at the Hôtel de Crillon's pop-up Terrace Le Guanahani. Grab a chaise longue and order an ice-cream cone, ice tea or an ice-cream sandwich and just chill in style while overlooking the Place de la Concorde.
