The temperatures are heating up in France, and if you’re traveling to Bordeaux wine country this summer, the place to cool off is the sexy rooftop terrace bar at the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux. Opening tonight for the summer season, “Night Beach” offers 360 degree views of the UNESCO-listed city in all its historic glory. Sip a custom cocktail (like the Soleil Sucré) and nibble on some tapas under the stars with all of Bordeaux at your feet. Open from 7 pm to 1 am daily.
Located in the very heart of Bordeaux facing the Grand Theatre, the Grand Hotel Bordeaux opened in 2007 in a majestic 18th century building decorated by well-known designer Jacques Garcia. Note: The hotel has a wine concierge for arranging itineraries through the famed vineyards and cellars of the Bordeaux region. Not to miss: Massages on the rooftop at the spa, Les Bains de Léa.
