Why not enjoy a cocktail and gourmet brasserie fare at Les Enfants Terribles, the highest restaurant in town, with a stunning rooftop terrace. Come summer, the patio features a vegetable garden, while in winter, twinkling lights set a magical holiday scene.
There’s more to do at the observatory than just look out: yoga+brunch, morning photo shoots, guided tour+brunch, fireworks at the top are just a few of the many spontaneous activities going on.
