Where to buy Champagne Bar entry tickets

Since the Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most popular tourist spots, you can expect long queues.

During peak season, these queues can result in even two-hour-long waiting times.

That’s why we suggest you get your tickets online.

When you book your tickets in advance, they will be time-stamped so that you can easily plan out the rest of your tour. 

Online tickets are also cheaper because you don’t pay a ‘ticketing window surcharge.’  

What’s better to reach the bar – Lifts or stairs?
Climbing the stairs to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower is a perfect Parisian experience for those in good physical condition. When you take the stairs, you enjoy stunning views of Paris and get some workout done. Eiffel Tower stairs tickets are also cheaper than lift tickets. Choosing to take the stairs can help you avoid lengthy queues for the elevators. However, we highly recommend elevators for families with young children or babies and individuals who face challenges climbing stairs.

What gets served at Champagne Bar

With an impressive selection of many different champagnes, guests can indulge in a glass of their favorite bubbly while taking in the stunning panoramic cityscape views of the “City of Lights,” including landmarks such as the Seine River, the Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre Museum.

Whether you’re a champagne connoisseur or teetotaller, the Eiffel Tower’s Champagne Bar has something for everyone.

While the space constraints don’t allow luxurious seating in the Bar, an attentive staff dedicated to exceptional service will cater to you.
