The best beer bar in Paris, still not very good. Has a beer list of 50-100 beers from mostly europe although nothing very exciting. Friendly staff.

Restaurant with a few interesting beers, certainly more than most places in Paris. The Basque food was ok, nothing special. The service was good, but it was mid-afternoon and the place wasnít really ramped up for visitors. Decent spot, wish there was better in Paris but it doesnít look like there is (except for Belgian beer, but we were on our way to Belgium).
Pretty nice little chilled out spot in the center of Paris. Interior is dark and cozy, and the outdoor patio is pretty large. Friendly place, can easily sit here a while. Not a beery place but has a fun selection of Corsican and Basque beers.
brillant place to chill out- staff are great fun-Fred the owner even better-Traditional axoa was fabulous. wife loved the curried chicken- excellent choices of beer and wine -all very reasonable prices for Paris- loads of french Rugby history-sometimes you can spot a rugby giant visiting
A return is Is top of my list when next in Paris
About three dozen French beers available in bottles, listed by region. About 80 Belgian beers. Like elsewhere in Paris, beer is not for the poor... prices start at 7 euro for a small bottle of craft beer. Rugby jerseys on the walls were a refreshing change from tacky breweriana found elsewhere. Eclectic music. Large variety of food, from mussels to pasta, but we didnít eat here.
Quite a wide choice of French beers (50?), some of which are quite difficult to find elsewhere. I had a reasonable dish, I donít think it will become a reference for food in Paris. The ambiance is quite nice, alt least the music is, a mix between English pub and French brasserie. A nice place where to go in Paris if looking for French beers.
Good location - wandering distance from the Lourve art gallery, 3 Metro stations close by, one on the same line as Gare du Nord so easy to pop down here. It was just after the lunch time rush when I visited, there was one waiter on and he was rushed of his feet. His par-for-the-course surly Parisian manners mellowed out during my stay at the bar, I even got a smile when I left (the tip helped). Looks like any other Parisian cafe from the street but a relaxed atmos, has an almost UK pub feel too it inside, lots of rugby memorablia on the walls, wide screen TV showing sport. Beer is Paris prices - E3.40 for a 25ml glass of Grimbergen, but it was in the correct glassware. Most of the 13 taps are everyday sorts of beers - Krony, Beamish etc so donít get your hopes of of finding an intresting French brew on tap. Did have the afore mentioned Grimbergen and St Louis Cherry and Raspberry lambics on tap. Bg bottle selection, but I didnít investigate. OK for Paris.
Tucked away on Rue St. Honorť. Visited on a Friday night. A DJ was spinning tunes, but the place wasnít crowded. As with most places in Paris, it has a nice outdoor patio. There were 14ish draft selections, but none were overly unique. I had hoped for more French beers on tap. The bottle selection was pretty good as far as French breweries go, though. There were also a lot of other European breweries represented. Service was decent. Didnít eat here.
One of the better French beer lists here. Prices are sky-high like everywhere in Paris (expect to pay 6 euros and up for French beers). I counted 40 French, 66 Belgium and 43 other beers, 13 taps.

Good selection, a bit on the pricey side, even for Paris. As with most of the bars in Paris, the selection concentrated mostly on French and Belgian brews but the international section was fairly large too.
Fantastic. Really. Go here. I came here a few times in June 2004 and then came back again in late July of 2004.
This place is located very close to the Louvre in a fairly discrete location. Interestingly enough, it was fairly easily to &quo;accidently&quo; stumble upon.
I enjoyed the atmosphere. For seating, you can sit at the large and comfortable booths inside or the patio outside. Different and unique &quo;beery&quo; things cover most of the wall space and some nice paintings as well.
The staff was always very friendly. The prices were expensive as hell but the cheapest in the city and slightly cheaper than the other great beer bar: Taverne Saint Germain.
The selection was phenomenal, about 300-400. My only complaint was the lack of good lambics. While the Taverne Saint Germain had different Cantillon and Boon lambics, the only lambics available here were the cheap (possibly blended with cheap lager or ale) sweetened fake lambics. While I was here I concentrated on the French brews.
Hit this place.
