15. Le Perchoir 14 Rue Crespin du Gast, Paris, 75011

Among the clever speakeasy-inspired venues infiltrating the Paris bar scene, Le Perchoir is accessible only through an unmarked doorway. While the spot is generally recognizable by the ever-present, well-to-do crowd standing somewhat aimlessly by the entrance, the charming lack of advertising maintains its appeal. Once the hidden bouncer grants you entrance, you step directly into an elevator that opens just seconds later to reveal arrangements of potted-greenery, plush seating, and most importantly, panoramic views of the city below (yes, that includes the Eiffel Tower). The raved-over rooftop locale, stationed atop Le BHV department store, serves a smattering of small plates -- think ham and cornichons -- but the food is merely an accompaniment to the craft cocktails and the seemingly infinite supply of chilled rosè.
