This is a very friendly Irish Pub near the Luxembourg Gardens. We were surprised to see all of the Green Bay Packer swag behind the bar. Several of the staff have visited Green Bay Wisconsin and are now true die-hard Packer Backers. The mayor of Green Bay even sent them a hand written note expressing his support following the Charlie... More

The staff were great, very lively and keen to talk to everyone and make conversations. they were passionate about their cocktails. You can take food from outside into the bar and eat at the tables which is cool. There's a good international crowd and it's the... More

This is one of the places to discover, a bit apart from the usual touristy crowds passing through the Quartier Latin! Extremely nice staff! We enjoyed the live jazz piano music on a Thursday night, and had a great time following the owner's very competent advice on his amazing whiskey collection, while munching from a delicious plate with cold meat...

Great bar with live music. Very friendly bartender and nice selection of drafts, bottles and liquors. Had a nice time here! No food except cheeses, though.

Spitting distance of the Luxembourg, near the Sorbonne and convenient for anyone living or staying on this side. Sensibly priced good range of booze, very friendly staff, major sports on screen and welcoming brought in food from several shops close by. Well kept Guinness. Lot of fun.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
