July 14th is our French National Day: a beautiful moment of sharing but also a messy one in the streets of Paris. Here are a few local tips to master your Bastille Day in Paris, on Friday July 14th, 2017 (unless you just want to watch the military march on the Champs-Elysées in the morning and stand in the crowd under the Eiffel Tower at night for the fireworks).

Rise above the city

Le Perchoir Marais, rooftop paris, by the tourist in paris

On our favorite rooftop bars and restaurants. Why? First, to escape the crowds and second, to enjoy a perfect view of the fireworks (between 11pm and 11:35pm). So where exactly?

> Museums restaurants have the best rooftops for a dinner with a view.
> For a closer look at the fireworks, book a table at Monsieur Bleu inside modern museum Palais de Tokyo facing the Eiffel Tower.
> Paris newest summer rooftops for a great romantic or friendly evening with drinks, food, music and of course a view.
> Paris most famous rooftops (article in French) to enjoy a perfect view of Paris as well. Book in advance!

Or watch the fireworks from the riverbanks

At Rosa bonheur sur Seine or at Faust, or at Flow, or at Monsieur Mouche, on Friday 14th, don’t miss a unique party from the Seine river side, from 8pm (come for drinks in the afternoon at the bars on the banks)

Dance with Paris fire fighters at the Firemen Balls

Here’s a tradition the ladies don’t want to miss: dance all night with the locals and… Paris fire fighters at one their 14 stations for the traditional firemen ball. We duly recommend two of them, that organize balls on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th nights from 9pm to 4am!

>The one in the Latin Quarter: 11, rue du Vieux Colombier, 75006 ParisMetro: Saint-Sulpice (Line 4)
> The one in the Marais district: 7-9, rue de Sévigné, 75004 ParisMetro: Saint-Paul (Line 1)
(Try to avoid the station in rue Blanche, good party, but usually ends up in fights with the cops in the street).
