Just like on long haul flights, you’ve got to arm yourself with patience before taking off. If you want access to Le Perchoir, the first of its name (2013), count on waiting around an hour if you arrive at 7pm on a Friday night…. But once you’re on the rooftop-terrace of this industrial building, the panoramic views of Paris, the Bedouin-Scandivavian décor (untreated wood, colorful cushions, a big tent canvas), the electro-pop and the cool hipster crowd will make you forget all about the wait. According to Max, the young bartender, “the challenge here is reconciling quality (homemade concoctions and juices, quality liquors) with quantity (300 people at cruising altitude).” The result: not very complicated recipes but respectable choices, like the Dark & Stormy (orange-infused rum, ginger beer, lime, Degroff bitters, €12) or the BomFim (cachaça, Belvoir ginger cordial and lime). And to keep a level head: fruit mocktails for €8, charcuterie and/or cheese platters for €16. // A.B.
