Secret terraces

Tucked away and secluded, Lyon’s more unusual or “secret” terraces offer bucket-loads of charm for those who know where to find them. Read on to find out more! 

Mama Shelter

Well-known for its huge bar decorated with hanging rubber rings and graffiti on the ceiling, Mama Shelter also offers the option of enjoying a drink on its small, but welcoming terrace. A great place to spend the evening. 


There’s nothing like looking out over the city in all directions to feel like you’re the king of the world!

Le Phosphore

Perched atop L'Antiquaille on Fourvière hill, Le Phosphore has a heated terrace that offers an absolutely breathtaking panoramic view over Lyon with plenty of greenery. 
Discover Chef Têtedoie’s selection of wines. If you’re feeling peckish, there are tapas, tartines du jour (slices of bread with various toppings), and platters of charcuterie, cheese and/or pastries.

Le Sucre

Undisputedly one of the most sought-after addresses in Lyon, the rooftop of Le Sucre offers an almost 360° panoramic view… The highest point in the Confluence district, Le Sucre is a major venue for clubbing events and its mojitos are among the best to be found in Lyon!

Le Celest Bar

On the 32nd floor of the Tour Part-Dieu (known as ‘Le Crayon’ by locals), Celest Bar has a selection of cocktails that is as surprising as it is delicious. Comfortably seated in the designer furniture, you can enjoy the superb view over the rooftops of Lyon… Ideal for a romantic evening. 

Maison Nô's Rooftop

A new “must-visit” address in Lyon’s Presqu’île district, on the top floor of Maison Nô, the RoofTop offers a panoramic view over Lyon. From Fourvière Basilica to the high-rises of the Part-Dieu district, the Opera House’s dome bathed in red light and the City Hall’s clock tower, this is a view like no other… Enjoy the cocktails created by Maison Nô as you gaze at the lights of the city.
