Mama Shelter, the trendiest rooftop in Bordeaux

This post is also available in: fr

We are approaching the end of September but the summer seems to linger in Bordeaux … It is not too late to spend an afternoon or an evening on a terrace high perched in order to admire the splendid sight on the city … Although Bordeaux is not particularly known for its quantity of rooftops, it still offers a small selection worth seeing, including the famous Mama Shelter: Pride of the Mama Shelter Hotel, the top floor terrace, just refurbished, offers an unrivaled panoramic view of the entire city. Design and acidity furniture, large lounge chairs and original drinks …. The ideal setting to enjoy a beautiful summer evening.

Located in the historical center of Bordeaux, this hotel, bar, restaurant and rooftop breaks with the style a bit snob of the other rooftops (forget the terrace of the Grand Hotel and the BCBG outfits that go with …) privileging simplicity, modernity and the offbeat. (giant baby foot, strange sculptures, animals, garlands multicolored, unusual objects … A real playground for the designer Philippe Starck who let all its creativity express itself.).

For my part, I had the chance to enjoy a nice “lunch” experience:

On the menu side, the emphasis is on quality with little but daring dishes … The desserts are divine and the wine list is smart. Still about 50 euros per person for a 3 course menu with wine.

A bowl of fresh artistic air and a real pleasure for the senses: the cocktail “music-food-drink and view on the roofs” is aphrodisiac!
