Saint Germain - 6eme, Paris –
A lively sports-themed joint in the popular nighttime area of Saint-Michel, The Great Canadian Pub is where homesick Canucks go for native comfort food, frosty Moosehead, and TVs tuned to lots of hockey.
By day, the outdoor seating area provides a picturesque place for passing tourists to enjoy a burger and a pint near the banks of the Seine, or maybe sneak in a Bloody Caesar – Canada’s version of the Bloody Mary – before heading to Notre Dame nearby.
Inside, hockey sticks double as door handles and sports paraphernalia covers much of the blood-orange walls, including signed jerseys encased in glass displays and plenty of maple leaf pennants.
As evening sets in, young expats and university students take advantage of the daily pint special and the L-shaped bar quickly fills with hungry patrons devouring plates of Poutine – a classic Canadian dish of French fries and fresh cheese curds covered with gravy.
Huddled in groups around the tavern tables, sports fans discuss the latest North American rosters over platters of nachos and chicken wings, while die-hard regulars show their true pub spirit by donning one of the official TGC t-shirts.
A home away from home for many, The Great Canadian Pub’s location and theme make it an ideal stop for a midday snack, a few evening beers, or to revel in sports played way (way, way!) across the pond.
Young expats, backpackers, university students, hockey buffs, Canadians, and local sports fans, 20s to early 30s.
Several flat-screens tuned primarily to North American sports, with an emphasis on hockey, as well as the NFL, NBA, MLB, rugby, and major European soccer matches. Ambient music of Top 40 and classic 90s favorites.
Canadian/American pub grub including cheeseburgers, nachos, poutine, and pecan pie. Happy Hour M–Th 4–7pm.
Appetizers €6.50–€16, salads €14–€15.50, sandwiches €15–€15.50, entrées €13–€16, lunch prix fixe menu €12. Beer €5–€8, wine €5+/glass or €23–€50/bottle, cocktails and mixed drinks €8.50–€10.

Anytime a big game of interest is on, or Fridays and Saturdays for the liveliest mix of expats celebrating another night in Paris.
