At the roots of Le Perchoir, there is a strong desire to reclaim Paris’ mythical rooftops and give Parisians a chance to live and enjoy special places in their city. For us – Le Perchoir’s crew – the first challenge was to transform the 400 meters-square rooftop of an industrial building in a nightlife venue. Our first rooftop bar has quickly attracted a young, creative audience, looking for new experiences. For us, it is also important to develop a lot of projects, through diverse collaborations and partnerships: exhibitions, concerts, pop-up restaurants, outdoor screenings…We want to gather and create surprises.
We then opened several other venues to meet with Parisians’ need for escape: the rooftop of Le Perchoir Marais, with a view on Paris and its most majestic monuments; Le Pavillon Puebla, at the heart of the historic Parc des Buttes Chaumont; and the exotic La Passerelle, quietly floating on the green banks of the Seine River.
The mission of Le Perchoir is to highlight our urban patrimony and to help revegetating the city through the conquest and layout of uncommon places in Paris. All the venues, although Parisian at heart, invite our guests to an exotic journey. Our music programming as well as the selection of tracks coming from all over the world made by Karl Plank from Radiooooo come from this spirit of travel.
