Party Earth Café OZ Blanche Review

The Scene

Café OZ Blanche in Paris’ 9eme is a raucous Aussie bar with crazy late hours & an international crowd. Get rooted in Paris with Party Earth.

It’s the land down under by way of Paris at Café OZ Blanche, one of five Australian-themed bars in the OZ chain that cater to rowdy packs of expats and the locals who love them.

Operating hours suggest owners forgot to reset the clocks after flying in from Sydney, but with its location on a heavily touristed stretch of Rue de Bruxelles, the one-room bar has no trouble pulling in packs of jet-lagged Sheilas and rabblerousing blokes for ever-changing themed events like F*** Yes Tomorrow is Friday, “Back To School” celebrations, and pretty much any excuse to stay out till the next morning really hurts.

With dark brown walls enhanced by tribal patterns and tables intentionally worn and etched with visitors’ initials, the joint resembles a camping mess hall, with no shortage of “kangaroo crossing” signs, tropical kitsch, and a DJ booth made of bamboo reeds.

Rowdiest Thursdays through Saturdays, the venue is usually full of international guests by 9pm, when everyone clamors around the bar for imported beers and potent, fruity house cocktails.

Rugby makes a frequent appearance on the huge flat-screens earlier in the week, and a single pool table by the entrance gets hard use before the tidal wave of young partiers flows in.

It’d be difficult to argue Café OZ Blanche is an authentic watering hole, but it’s hardly trying to be. The emphasis here is on giving young boozers a high-octane night of memories…that they’ll probably never remember.

Had Potential but Strange Rules
Rebecca R. Apr 26, 2013
My single girl friends and I decided to spend a Saturday night out in Paris and head to Cafe Oz. There are multiple Cafe Oz bars in this city. We have heard great things about it so we were eager to get there so we could dance the night away. The Cafe Oz we attended was not in fact the Blanche, Pigalle one, but the extremely popular and busy Australian bar on the Grands Boulevards. There was no option to review this location so I chose the Blanche location for this review. Regardless, they are all practically identical. Once we arrived we had to wait in line to enter the bar. We were accompanied by gorgeous French men who helped us to find the bar. Upon entering we learned that it was a 10 EURO cover fee that included a free drink. I was ok with this since cocktails tend to be around this price anyway. What INFURIATED me was the fact that they were only letting males into the club if they were accompanied by females. So the French men we just met were not allowed to enter the bar after we did. My friends and I then went inside the bar and it was packed. I guess the doorman that night decided to allow creepy middle aged men to enter Cafe Oz. My friends and I headed straight to the bar and got our drinks. We lasted about a half hour in there before calling it quits. No amount of alcohol was going to turn this night into an enjoyable experience. If the crowd was better, and the air conditioning worked, then we definitely would have had a better time! Ratings: APPEARANCE: 5/10 DRINKS: 7/10 ATMOSPHERE: 2/10 The potential is there for a great time, but I found it odd that the doormen were picking and choosing who could enter and who could not. I personally would not go back.
