Twice a month (first and third Fridays) you can watch a wrestling show. The food is a variety of tapas and other Spanish and Mexican specialities, while at the bar there is an amazing choice of cocktails with up to 10 different types of Mojito.

Gotta say, I loved the soirée yesterday in there. We organized a department soirée there and we were all delighted because everything was so cool, the show, the fights between us, or even ppl coming afterwards to do the same than us (we had it private until 22).

The bar itself is nothing special, but if you go with good people, there is definitely the potential for a great night! Good drinks, snacks, and a wrestling ring with sumo suits - what could be better?? LOVED IT!

When I saw this place from the outside, I never expected what I would see once I entered. It is a great idea for a modern dive bar. There are TV's on the ground floor so you can watch the Mexican wrestling (with sumo fat suits) that is going on down stairs. It gets really funny. Blended crowd, but mostly... More

My French co-workers thought this would be a fun night out, and while I was a bit concerned when the email to our team said they were going to "catch Mexican" (as I have a Mexican heritage) it turns out that "catch" means "wrestling" in French. It's basically a VERY crowded bar with some incredibly entertaining amateurish WWF-type "Mexcian" wrestling... More

When you first visit the street and see the lucha libre a slight apprehension will prevail, do not let this deter you, for you will find a very ambient restaurant with delightful staff and excellent food. When in Paris you must make this a feast to enjoy.

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.
