Nov 29, 2012 —  With some of the oldest drinking traditions in the world, it’s no surprise that Europe is home to hundreds of historic bars. Storied watering holes run the gamut, from sprawling beer halls to ancient pubs that predate the Great Fire of London.

In France, young politicos flock to hubs of the May 1968 protests while rising stars seek inspiration in the favorite haunts of legends like Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot. While in England, aspiring writers crowd the worn out seats of Lost Generation icons like T.S. Eliot and H.D. (Hilda Doolittle). And all throughout the continent, culture hounds search for Banksy in bars that once housed art giants like Lucian Freud, Gertrude Stein, and Francis Bacon.

Whether you’re looking to try ancient brews in old taverns or want to track down the most frequented dives of your favorite artists, Europe’s bars offer a living legacy with centuries of history to share. So slip into a cracked leather chair, grab a glass, and unwind with a crazy story at one of our favorite historic bars in Europe.
