Party Earth Au P'tit Garage Review

The Scene

Crafted in the same spirit as New York's classic punk bars CBGB and Mars Bar, Au P'tit Garage – or Garage Bar, as it is locally known – is all about two things: really loud music and cheap beer, and lots of both.

Crafted in the same spirit as New York’s classic punk bars CBGB and Mars Bar, Au P’tit Garage – or Garage Bar, as it is locally known – is all about two things: really loud music and cheap beer, and lots of both.

Housed in a converted garage complete with rolling-door entrance, Garage Bar’s reputation as the punk headquarters of Oberkampf saves it from being just another dive bar, despite appearances.

Except for the graffiti, concert posters, and hand-written signs, the cramped, bare-bones space is dusty and undecorated, though the living-room feel of the back room does offer a touch more comfort.

The best feature of the front bar area is the staff of tough and sometimes rude bartenders who must contend with the demanding crowd of leather-and-torn-jeans types.

Garage Bar and the surrounding area are known for attracting an occasional late-night brawl, so some discretion is advised for the uninitiated who may be visiting for the first time.

Despite being rough around the edges, however, Garage Bar and its clientele combine to create a liberal and even friendly vibe, perhaps due to the shared enjoyment of reasonable prices and rare punk rock music.

Tip from Jonah:

Definitely no-frills, but the perfect place when all you want to do is drink, listen to music, and go unnoticed – easy to do in such a loud place that’s usually full of every imaginable character. Being here is its own entertainment.

A place to have a few drinks... But not to spend all of your night
Diane R. Apr 23, 2013
A nice place in the Oberkamph area to crash at night and enjoy a few beers. The decoration is on purpose made of random objects and you can sit almost wherever you want. Drinks are not too expensive, but after 10 the noise-level is very high and it can be hard to hear your neighbour! Adding to that, there are not so many sitting spots and it happened to me to stay half of the night standing up, taking care that no one spill his beer on my jacket...
