Stepping into the rue de Castiglione under the classical arches and between the impressive bronze torchères, no one suspects that they are about to discover the tranquility of the hotel’s interior terrace, far from the bustle of the neighborhood.
This former courtyard of honor, which in the 19th century hosted the carriages of the clients of the largest hotel in Paris during the Universal Exhibition, takes on a different style each summer.
Luminous white and green vegetation dress the terrace with the colors of a garden under the summer sun.
Boxwood topiaries in Medici vases structure the space to suggest the feeling of alcoves in Le Nôtre’s French gardens. The arches covered with climbing flowers play with the light and bring a romantic touch.
Under the pergola that backs onto the veranda or under the shelter of the large white parasols, everything makes you want to stroll, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Only the immaculate streetlights that light up the mild June evenings remind us that we are in Paris.
The Terrace of the Westin Paris-Vendôme is like a bubble where the minutes stretch out for the pleasure of its guests, the time to enjoy a gourmet meal or a handcrafted cocktail. Indeed, there are few places in the capital that are a true haven of peace, an exceptional setting where a restaurant and a bar are hidden at the same time.
Even if it seems to be a confidential place, the terrace of the Westin Paris-Vendôme is open to all those who want a break from the hectic life of the City of Light.
Such a relaxing vibe, within this historic establishment, makes the Terrasse Éphémère a rare Parisian destination to enjoy moments of relaxation as soon as the sun comes out.
