Paris Bars Overview

Bound - Bar | Restaurant in Paris

Bars in Paris are as common and diverse as the people in this wondrous cosmopolitan city, and though the City of Light may be best known for its food and culture – the Paris bar scene c'est magnifique!

International jet-setters find much to love at the chic bars on Rivoli and the exclusive cocktail haunts along the Champs-Élysées, while the always-stylish Parisian enjoys a plentiful array of seductive boutique bars and luxurious mixology spots in neighborhoods all over town.

This shouldn’t imply city denizens can’t be casual, of course, as international nightlife hotspots like the Latin Quarter are practically lined with student-friendly dives and cool bars housed in medieval stone buildings, while steps from the famed Louvre and Musée d'Orsay, everything from kitschy Irish joints to exclusive wine bars hide inside the city’s endless historic buildings.

Bohemians and artists gather at smoky bars along the outskirts of town, while many expats, university students, travelers, and those simply in need of a relaxed evening fill the array of budget-friendly Paris bars, which often feature English-speaking staffs and patrons.

Some of the coolest mixology spots or cocktail dens can often be found along the smaller streets off the main drags, but no matter where one ventures in Paris, the wine is always flowing and the bars are open late.
