A bastion of the Parisian avant-gardes, from Pablo Picasso to Yves Klein, the Centre Pompidou is as fresh today as in 1977 when its revolutionary silhouette appeared in the heart of the capital.
Could you even think of skipping a visit here? At the very least, come and enjoy a drink or a meal as you contemplate the impossibly playful architecture and, of course, its extraordinary view over Paris.
Perched at the top of the museum, the top-notch brasserie Georges forms a breathtaking glass cage overlooking the sea of zinc roofs, from which emerge Notre-Dame, the Hôtel de Ville, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and all the rest.
This captivating spectacle is enhanced by the interior design by the architect duo Jakob & MacFarlane: between the perfectly aligned tables, the floor rises in bold volumes of aluminium shaped like abstract sculptures. Of course, whether you’re here for a drink, a snack or a meal, prices are premium as well – but sharing a moment in a setting like this is priceless!
