Party on the Rooftop: Reserve Your (Free!) Spot at French Touch

Party on the Rooftop: Reserve Your (Free!) Spot at French Touch

There’s something about summer in the city. When the temperatures sizzle, when the sun sets well past 9 pm, Parisians show off their joie de vivre in a big way. The sidewalk terrasses are packed, the parks are full of sunbathers, and the city embraces a party vibe. Nowhere is that more evident than Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann, the storied grand magasin and one-stop shopping mecca. The summer brings a host of fun activities and events, including the hot pop-up restaurant Créatures, overseen by in-demand chef Julien Sebbag.

The rooftop terrace is one of the most scenic spots in the French capital for outstanding panoramas in every direction. You could almost reach out and touch the Palais Garnier, the gilded majesty of the Opera House just a cobblestone’s throw away. And it’s here where Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann is throwing a major fete for the “French Touch” event. Think live concerts and DJ sets by major artists and emerging young talent, not to mention film screenings and a crypto art exhibition.
