L'escalier


Last November, Peter, Genie and I struck off on what seemed like the potential of a wild goose chase, in search of a new rooftop bar, Le Perchoir.   After a good bit ( a LOT)  of walking we found the street, wandered through some industrial doors and looked up. I'll admit, I was already exhausted and the thought of climbing these stairs was more than I was willing to tackle. I didn't say so, but was thinking that if I had a drink, Peter Olson would have to bring it to me as I sat on the bottom step. Luckily, oh so luckily, we spotted an elevator so we all went up.  The view from the rooftop, and the Jack Daniels bourbon made for a fine ending to the day!

Magnificent stairs. Admittedly, I'm a sucker for a good set of spiral steps.

I missed this outing and want to go next time—must admit, looking at your photo I'm not sorry to hear there's an elevator. :-}

I don't do heights very well (actually, not at all) so an elevator is beside the point! But I'm sure the view is wonderful...

Beautiful picture of the staircase! Le Perchoir is a difficult, unmarked place to find. I just went to Le Perchoir's terrace at the top of BHV today - another great spot (with an elevator!).

WOW! Look at that big boy rising to the sky!
