Paris Sports Bars Overview

Belushi's Gare Du Nord - Bar | Sports Bar in Paris

The denizens in Paris are passionate about their food, their wine, their culture, and their partying, but if there’s one thing they go really crazy for, it’s their sports. Whenever there’s a match on TV the sports bars in Paris are invariably packed with sports fans of all persuasions.

Just as in the vast majority of European cities, football (soccer) is by far the most popular sport, and catching a game in person is a must for any sports lover. But if you can’t make it to Parc des Princes to watch hometown heroes Paris Saint-Germain F.C. (PSG) in person, the next best thing might be to catch all the action at great Paris sports bars. Winners of multiple tournaments and championships, PSG competes both against other French teams and around Europe as well, so even if their playing outside of the country it’s doubtful you will have to walk very far to find a sports bar in Paris carrying the match.

Most Paris sports bars have great bar food to go with the action, and all will have an ecstatic fan base cheering on their teams. Football isn’t the only game Parisians are passionate about though, as basketball has steadily become more and more popular with French international stars playing more and more in the NBA, so if that’s your game, the chances are good you can find a bar full of hoops-lovers too.

And of course everybody goes nuts for the French Open – one of the four biggest tennis tournaments in the world – and even crazier over the final stage of the Tour de France. So unless you plan on riding your bike 2,200 miles, how about pedaling over to a sports bar in Paris instead?
