Bordeaux's most beautiful rooftops

Located throughout the city center, Bordeaux’s rooftops offer an exceptional view. They’re the ideal spot to spend a romantic evening under the stars, admiring the city lights. Some rooftops are even open in the morning and afternoon, letting you take breakfast and after-work cocktails with friends to new heights. 


On nice days, the Mama Rooftop is an inviting place to dine and sip a drink while gazing at the city from above. Located in Saint-Christoly square in the city’s historic center, it offers a breathtaking view of the Saint-André cathedral.

Season: April to late September, depending on the weather.

Set on the rooftop of the InterContinental - the Grand Hotel is a real lounge bar under the stars. The patio offers an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, not to mention a remarkable view of Bordeaux’s Grand-Theatre. Every summer, the rooftop transforms into "Night Beach" and brings a seaside setting to the heart of the city. To accompany a range of delicious and sophisticated cocktails, the head chef offers an array of appetizers, and an in-house DJ brings a cosy and exclusive feel to the summer evenings.

Season: from March onward, depending on the weather.
