Forget the traditional champagne bar – the Perching Bar has just the set the “bar” extremely high on being unique…. so high, in fact, that you are 18 feet up above the trees.
Recently launched, and under the ownership of Olivier Couteau, the Perching Bar is the world’s only Champagne bar in the trees. It is in the midst of Parc Arboxygene, an extreme adventure park in Verzy, France. Situated in the heart of the Champagne region, it is a mere 15 minute car ride from Reims or Epernay.
Access to the Perching Bar is by a wooden walkway. Venturing through the lush forest, up two wooden bridges you come to a suspended 60-meter footbridge – What an amazing view!
La Cabane Perchee, the company that designed the Perching Bar has kept the classic exterior tree-house structure including the stilts. The design concept has a wrap-around wooden terrace complete with puffy sofas, armchairs, and stools for 30 guests. Here you have magnificent views of the zip lines, lush treetops, and the region.
Once inside the bar, you are greeted by a contemporary interior that is chic-simple. With lots of natural wood and white leather seating, it also comes complete with 4 swings. The Perching Bar is also eco-friendly – all the lighting is supplied by solar panels.
Here you can swing while enjoying the views and a perfect glass of champagne! The Champagne List – by the glass or by the bottle, Olivier is the curator. He currently offers a selection of Champagnes from smaller producers to Grandes Maisons:
Champagne Pehu Simonet
Champagne G.H. Mumm
Louis de Sacy Champagne
The Perching Bar is a glamorous winter playground and the place to be on Thursday through Sunday for a glass of bubbly!
The Perchingbar will be open from 21 March to 31 December each year, from Thursday to Sunday in the high season and just at the weekend out of season.
