Le Comptoir

Located in the heart of Paris' 15th arrondissement, this bar is a partner of several Rugby teams. And, since what would a rugby bar be without rugby players, le Comptoir invites several teams and league clubs it partners with on match nights. This is a chance for fans to spend a fun evening and watch legendary encounters on big screens with a platter of cold meats, tapas and a number of pints which has yet to be determined (in moderation, of course).

Le French Flair

Le French Flair is a 100% rugby bar located in the heart of Pigalle. You'll have a wide selection of beer and whiskies to choose from as you root for your favourite team on big screens. And since no rugby fan can cheer on his team on an empty stomach, you can choose from a selection of cold meat and cheese platters, tapas or toasted sandwiches. Don't hesitate, let the folkloric atmosphere of this sports bar take you away! Here's a tip: a southwestern brunch is served every weekend.
