Pubs in Paris – on top of being an awesome alliteration – are profoundly plentiful and make for a most perfect night in the City of Light.
There is a lively Irish community in Paris, so Irish pubs are especially easy to find, from rowdy pubs catering mostly to students all the way down to quiet old haunts with regulars almost as old as the historic furnishings.
The best place to find a Paris pub is probably not going to be along the chichi and tourist-laden Champs-Élysées or the equally opulent Rivoli area, but the Latin Quarter is definitely a good jumping off point for a pub crawl in Paris thanks to its bounty of cool pubs like the enormous Corcoran's Irish Pub or the tiny kitsch explosion that is Fifth Bar.
The same can be said of the outskirts of Paris proper, where a more bohemian set gathers at smoky pubs, while many expats, university students, travelers, and those simply in need of a relaxed evening fill the array of budget-friendly Paris pubs in Saint Germain or Les Halles, which often feature English-speaking staffs and patrons.
Guinness Tavern is a great pub for those looking to add some live music to their pub experience, while Le Pub Saint Germain is a classic and student-friendly pub with expansive outdoor seating perfect for those warm summer nights. No matter which one you end up in, the pubs in Paris are very promising.
