Bars in Paris

Whether you want to meet new friends, brood over your novel-in-progress, dance the night away, or just live it up in the City of Light, Paris has bars to suit the most diverse and discerning patrons. You might be surprised to find that many Parisian bars are inside bistros, brasseries, and cafés, but if a more Anglophone experience is what you're seeking, the city offers plenty of classic pubs and bars populated with locals and expats. Parisian bar culture is a direct extension of their café traditions, and you are likely to find all sections of society sharing about their day over a beer, specially mixed cocktail, glass of wine, or dram of spirits. From the high-end to the down and dirty, Paris is a place to eat, drink, and be merry. After a long day of sightseeing, an after-dinner drink might be just what the doctor ordered. Paris has always been a city for writers, artists, and the aspiring, and a couple of its liquor haunts still tell the tale. Rich in history, the Hemingway Bar and Harry's New York Bar are just the right spots for paying homage to your literary forebearers. If glitz and glamour are more your speed, check out Bound Bar or the George V Hotel Bar, also known as Le Bar to the rich and famous. For a wild night with the trendiest you can find, Buddha Bar, La Casbah, and Mondrian are where its it at. And if you'd rather have a low-key but fun time of drink and dancing, La Java Bar and Club is just what you're seeking. For the budget minded traveler, Footsie and La Belle Hortense will be especially appealing. With bars like La Champmeslé for the ladies, and RAIDD for the men, Paris has plenty of nightlife specifically geared toward gay and lesbian travelers as well. Fear not! We've put together the best of the best to ensure your night on the town will be well worth remembering.
