For the fancy there will be a champagne bar and also a stand for hot chocolate and other hot drinks for the whole family.
The history of the Tour via Paul Mcqueen:
The Tour Montparnasse is Paris’ only true skyscraper. Its name is derived from Mount Parnassus, a flattened Parisian hill that was likened to the home of the Muses. In 1934, the SNCF decided to modernize the Gare Montparnasse, however, it wasn’t until 1959 that the first studies for the tower were conducted. Urbain Cassan, Eugène Beaudouin, Louis de Hoÿm de Marien, and Jean Saubot were the four architects who came up with the winning design. In 1969, despite opposition to the building’s scale, President Georges Pompidou approved the project. Following four years of construction, the tower was inaugurated on June 18th, 1973.
