9 Best Sports Bars in Paris Where to Watch Your Favorite Team’s Games

Whether we’re talking about soccer, football, golf, English boxing, or handball, a fan only has one wish when their favorite team is playing : to gather with other fans and friends around a nice, cold beer and some snacks to watch a game. So, if you are one to enjoy the incomparable atmosphere of sports bars – and if you are in Paris – here are the 9 best bars in town where the World Cup Finals isn’t the only game they broadcast.

But first, let’s place them on a map:

 

1) The Belushi’s

  • Belushi’s Paris Canal: 159 rue Crimée, 75019 Paris
  • Belushi’s Paris Gare du Nord: 5 rue de Dunkerque, 75010 Paris

The Belushi’s is the sports bar! Boxing, soccer, football (be it American or Australian), field hockey, rugby all of which are broadcasted from their respective countries… the Bledisloe Cup, the Champions League, FA cup, international matches and much more are here for you to watch!

There’s a bit (read, a lot) of everything, all of which is on HD TV and even projectors. You can even ask for any sports event to be broadcasted.

The best of all? The fact that they organize game nights, which means meeting up with other fans in an awesome sports-oriented atmosphere. And while one of the shops has a nightclub which could spoil your sport, that one is only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 1pm to 5am. Otherwise, the other one -clubless- will let you enjoy your game to its fullest!

All of which can be done while enjoying a pint, a homemade burger or even some snacks!

Prices:
Pints: from €6.80 to €8.50
Bottled beers: between €6 and 7.50

Snacks (nachos, wings, quesadillas, garlic bread, etc.): from €4 to €20 depending on the amount!
Burgers: from €12 to €15
Salads: from €10 to €14

Of course, you’ll be able to quench your thirst with beers, soft drinks, wine, and cocktails, along with things to eat such as the usual meat and/or cheese assortments, or more complete and original assortments such as samosas, sweet/savory beef kebab, honey ribs… all of which are in portions big enough to share.

As to this sports bar, the Canadians are the ones wh will be welcoming you. Within its red walls and wooden furniture, you will be able to watch soccer, football, hockey, basketball, baseball, rugby and many other sports games in a cozy atmosphere.

With 14 screens and some good poutine, along with beers and cocktails, The Moose is on top. Therefore, it is quite popular, and you may have to wait a little bit before getting a table sometimes.

But don’t worry, if you are the kind of person to take a chance without booking beforehand, you will still be able to wait for a table at the bar -which is available for everyone. You could even give in to some snacks (mozzarella sticks, onion rings, quesadillas, etc.).

But yeah… we know what you’re really interested in : the poutine. It is one of this bar-restaurant’s biggest best-sellers. And we can understand why: 5 recipes (out of which one is often renewed), made with real Quebecker cheese curds, and none priced above €14.

You will also find delight on the beer side: Fosters, Newcastle, Edinger, Guinness, Brooklyn Lager, Paname Brewing Co, etc. for the draught beers. And Budweiser, Coors light, Rothus Pils, Sol Cerveza (a Mexican one), Yardbird Pale Ale and many more for the bottled ones.

Finally, if you’re aiming for a 100% English ambiance, we advise you choose The Bombardier.

British beers such as Charlie Wells, John Bull, Wells Banana Bread Beer, Young’s London, etc. are in the taps but also in the fridges with bottled beers such as Wells Waggle Dance, Young’s Special London Ale or their Double Chocolate Stout.

Not to forget all the available English ciders; though, classics lovers worry not, Corona, Bud Lager and Cubanisto are also available and waiting for you.

On the menu: fish & chips, English-style curry or pie of the week. If you’re more of a snack person, the classics are there to please you: mozzarella sticks, onion rings, bowls of fries, assortments… and there is also room for more audacious, less classic snacks such as Cask beer breadcrumbed cod loin.

Although The Bombardier mainly broadcasts soccer; basketball, cricket, rugby, golf, F1 and tennis are also to be seen, and always in a tremendous atmosphere on game nights thanks to all the English supporters that meet up there.

Prices:
Pints: €6.90 or €8
Bottled beers: €8
Cocktails: €8

Dishes: €12 to €16
Snacks: €5 to €9
