Restaurant Klay Saint Sauveur

The winter garden of chic fitness club Klay has quickly become a destination for Parisians seeking a health-conscious haven. Full of lush exotic plants and hand-painted frescoes transport you away from the bustle of the city, while the menu is as fashionable as the location, serving up Los Angeles-style power bowls and taking inspiration from the latest vegan and gluten-free trends. In addition, the Klay Saint Sauveur’s warm Palm Springs-esque setting is sure to make you forget the dismal weather outside.

Le Très Particulier

The conservatory at Le Très Particulier, a hidden den at the Hôtel Particulier Montmartre, is a particularly romantic spot for a rainy afternoon. Deep red velvet armchairs and black drapes give the bar a seductive twist, and leafy potted palms add a touch of tropical greenery. As well as serving up craft cocktails, the bar also hosts a decadent champagne brunch every weekend.

The Bar Vendôme at the Ritz Paris

The large conservatory of Bar Vendôme at the Ritz Paris is transformed into an elegant winter garden once the cold weather arrives. Summer furniture is replaced by plush, red velvet armchairs for a cozier setting. Open throughout the day to enjoy all of the hotel’s gastronomic pleasures, it’s also the perfect spot to people-watch and soak up some of the Ritz’s old-world glamour.

The winter garden at The Hoxton, complete with a small but vibrant living wall and stylish velvet-clad furniture, is one of the most fashionable spots in Paris to shelter from the cold.
