Party Earth The Great Canadian Pub Review

The Scene

The Great Canadian Pub in the 6eme is a fat slice of Canada in Paris. Grab some Poutine, slam some Moosehead, & watch some hockey with Party Earth in 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.

Slice of Heaven
Grant C. Jun 3, 2013
This little piece of North America is centrly located along the Seine near metro St Michel. Its crowd caters towards the sports fan and as a result its a great place to go catch a game. Its wait staff consists of mostly young Canadian and American girls, they are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and drink options. One of the gems of this bar is that it televises all the current American sporting events with football every Sunday and the NHL playoffs live. This means the bar stays open late virtually every night so patrons can watch there teams play at night in the US (with the time change you might be stuck until the wee hours of the morning watching). All in all its a great place to soak in the atmosphere of a Canadian bar in the heart of Paris and should be a definite pit stop during any night out in the Latin Quarter.
Almost home away from home...
Tara R. Dec 13, 2012
As a half-Canadian, half-American hybrid, this pub made me so happy when I first found it. I came here with my red and white jersey for a Habs game and even though I didn’t like poutine when I lived in Montreal, I ordered some out of nostalgia. I didn’t get any beer because neither variety is all that inspiring. In fact, the beers served here remind me most in taste of over-fermented lemonade made from lemons that have gone off. There weren’t many Quebecois here when I stopped by, which was a disappointment because it is much better to commiserate an inevitable Habs loss with other Montrealers. In any event, if you are Canadian, know a Candian, or love a Canadian or all things Canadian, this is the best bar in Paris to satisfy your tastes.
Good ambience, disappointing brews
Victoria V. Sep 20, 2012
As a nostalgic Canadian, I was slightly disappointed to see that their selection of Canadian brews went no further than bottled Molson and Labatt (Canada's Budweiser and Natty, respectively). For the exorbitant price asked, you're better off drinking a Belgian microbrew! That said, The Great Canadian Pub is still a great place to get a burger and catch a hockey game in Paris. Between its convenient location and thoroughly unpretentious crowd, it will be a no-brainer for this year's NHL season opener. *Correction to the review: The Canadian version of a Bloody Mary is generally called a Caesar, not a Bloody Caesar. The main difference is that it's made with Clamato juice, which contains clam juice as well as tomato!
